And when it does hit, it’s comforting to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.

Ensure 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 extreme weather.

Here are a handful of simple tips:

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

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added protection to your home from objects that could get tossed about 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 severe weather.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to protect your home is making sure the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
