Hurricanes, High Winds, and your Windows

According to the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), weather related disasters lead to almost $14 billion in damages annually. Do you know the key to protecting your home and surviving hurricanes and high winds? Preparedness.

“It’s important to understand how severe weather can affect structural integrity,” said JELD-WEN’s director of product marketing, Elizabeth Souders. “Specifying the right exterior products can help decrease the risk of major damage.”
