No matter where you live
in the United States, you undoubtedly
experience some sort of bad weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of extreme
weather. And when it does come, it’s nice
to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and
doors are guarding your home from the elements.
Ensure your home is prepped with proper
planning and protection, paying special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for bad weather.
Here are a few simple tips:
- Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides
the intended structural integrity and proper water
management during severe weather.
- Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer more
protection to your home from things that could
get thrown around in a storm.
- Check seals – Every window
and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is a good idea to double check the seals that
help direct water away from your home during severe weather.
- Clear the area
around your home – One of the best things you can do to guard
your home is making certain that the surrounding
area has no debris or low
hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your
windows and doors.
