No matter where you live
in the country, you probably
experience some sort of extreme weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of bad
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 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 prepped
for bad weather.
Here are a handful
of practical tips:
- Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation gives you
the intended structural integrity and proper water
management during weather events.
- Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added
protection to your home from objects that may
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 in
good practice to double check the seals that
help manage water away from your home during a weather event.
- Clear the area
around your home – One of the best things you can do to guard
your home is making sure the surrounding
area is clean of debris and low
hanging branches that could crash into your
windows and doors.
