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.

  • Look 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.
