No matter where you live in the U.S., you undoubtedly experience some type of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of extreme weather. And when it does hit, it’s encouraging 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 ready with proper planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared for inclimate weather.

Here are a few easy tips:

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

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you more protection to your home from things that may get thrown around in a storm.

  • Take a look at your seals – Every window and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is a good idea 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 shield your home is making sure the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
