And when it does come, 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 prepared with great planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared for bad weather.

Here are a couple practical tips:

  • Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and proper water management during bad weather.

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer additional protection to your home from objects 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 in good practice 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 making certain that the surrounding area is clear of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
