How to Protect Your Home from Severe Weather in the Kansas City Area

Feb 25, 2019

Residents of the Kansas City metro area enjoy fairly pleasant weather much of the year, but it’s not at all uncommon for heavy rains, powerful winds, and even tornadoes to the visit the region, especially in the spring and early summer. Sometimes homeowners will receive advance warning of an approaching storm, giving them time to move patio furniture indoors and shut off the electricity and water supply, if appropriate. However, in many cases, even when meteorologists detect potentially damaging storms on the horizon, there’s little time to protect your home from severe weather.

That’s why it’s important that you invest in high-quality, exterior home improvements that will stand up to Mother Nature’s fury, as well as help your home maintain comfortable temperatures inside, even when a blizzard or heat wave is afoot. Among the most important upgrades to consider are:

Replacement Windows

Fiberglass or premium-grade vinyl windows with energy-efficient features make good choices for homeowners in this region. Look for windows with meticulously engineered frames and multi-pane glass to provide extra strength. This will help your windows maintain their protective seal against air and water infiltration.

House Siding

James Hardie fiber cement siding, renowned for its beauty and weather resistance, or top-caliber, insulated vinyl siding by a leading manufacturer like Ply Gem can provide a high level of protection from the elements for your home. However, it’s important that you hire a siding contractor that provides expert installation services by highly trained professionals to minimize the risk of your siding pulling away from your home during inclement weather.

Entry Doors

Many people don’t think about replacing their front door unless it begins to look worn. However, replacing an ordinary wooden entry door with a stronger steel or fiberglass entry door can provide better weather resistance, as well as enhanced security and protection against flying debris.

At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we’ve been outfitting homes in the Kansas City metro area with beautiful and weather-resistant windows, siding, and doors since 1976. We’ll be happy to help you choose the best products to safeguard your home from severe weather. Contact us today for more information.
