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 protecting your home from the elements.

Make sure your home is ready with proper planning and protection, giving special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for bad weather.

Here are a few simple tips:

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

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added protection to your home from items that might get tossed about 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 bad weather.
