Cleveland Climate Recommendations
Northeast Ohio — including the Cleveland-Akron-Canton area — has a generally temperate climate with cold winters and mild summers. Cleveland stretches along the southern banks of Lake Erie, making the city prone to lake effect precipitation that varies from the city’s west and east sides. Its proximity to the lake also makes it the windiest city in the state. The “Snow Belt” extends from Cleveland’s east side and suburbs, and extends up the shores of Lake Erie towards Buffalo. This area can easily see snow totals over 100 inches a year.
Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Doors with panes of glass with Low-E will help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and keeping the heat in.
Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood and fiberglass front doors are built to help withstand the weather.
Winter cold and snow can impact your front door, depending on its finish, the location, the direction it faces, and whether or not there’s an overhang. Heavy air moisture levels can impact a wood door more than other materials like fiberglass. Protect the look of your front door with a storm door to keep your main entrance looking great for years.
