Severe Weather Protection with JELD-WEN Windows and Doors


When severe storms hit, your windows and doors are the most vulnerable parts of your home. Because of this, it is important to look into impact-resistant windows, especially if you live in areas known for their severe weather.

“For years, the focus has been on Florida. But now, building codes in areas ranging from Texas to New England are driving demand for windows that can withstand high winds and impact from flying debris caused by severe storms,” said Les Stephens, product marketing manager for JELD-WEN, the world’s leading manufacturer of reliable windows and doors.
