No matter where you live
in the U.S., you probably
experience some type of extreme weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of extreme
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 protecting your home from the elements.
Ensure your home is prepared with great
planning and protection, giving special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for bad weather.
Here are a couple easy tips:
- Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation gives you
the intended structural integrity and best water
management during weather events.
in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added
protection to your home from things that might
get tossed about in a storm.
- Check 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 manage 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 being sure that the surrounding
area is clear of debris and low
hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your
windows and doors.
