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

Ensure your home is prepared with great planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for extreme weather.

Here are a handful of practical tips:

  • Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and correct water management during weather events.

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you additional protection to your home from things that could 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 your best interest to double check the seals that help direct 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 being sure that the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
