No matter where you live in the United States, you likely experience some form of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of extreme 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.

Be sure your home is prepped 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 handful of easy tips:

  • Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with the intended structural integrity and correct water management during severe weather.

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you added protection to your home from items 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 your best interest 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 protect your home is being sure that the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
