No matter where you live
in the U.S., you likely
experience some form of severe weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe
weather. And when it does strike, 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.
sure your home is prepped with sufficient
planning and protection, giving special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for extreme weather.
Here are a few practical tips:
- Be sure
you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides
the intended structural integrity and proper water
management during bad weather.
- Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide additional
protection to your home from items that might
get tossed about in a storm.
a look at your seals – Every window
and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is in your best interest 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 is clean of debris and low
hanging branches that could crash into your
windows and doors.
