No matter where you live in the country, you probably experience some sort of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of bad weather. And when it does strike, it’s comforting to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are guarding your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is prepped with great 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 practical tips:

  • Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides the intended structural integrity and best water management during weather events.

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer added protection to your home from objects that might get thrown around 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 bad weather.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to shield your home is making sure the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
