No matter where you live
in the United States, you probably
experience some form of bad weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of severe
weather. And when it does strike, it’s encouraging
to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and
doors are shielding your home from the elements.
Make sure your home is ready with great
planning and protection, giving special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared
for bad weather.
Here are a handful
of practical tips:
- Be sure
you have a quality installation – A quality installation gives you
the intended structural integrity and correct water
management during severe weather.
in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added
protection to your home from objects that might
get strewn about in a storm.
- Inspect seals – Every window
and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is in
good practice 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 protect
your home is making sure the surrounding
area is clean of debris and low
hanging branches that could crash into your
windows and doors.
