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. It’s 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. Window panes of glass with Advanced 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 with aluminum cladding, vinyl, and fiberglass are low maintenance and can help stand up to extreme weather.
Prepare wood doors for bitterly cold winters and semi-humid summers. EnduraClad® and EnduraClad® Plus exterior finishes resist fading and look great for years.
