Houston Climate Recommendations
The largest city in Texas, Houston is located in the southeastern portion of the state near the Gulf of Mexico and Galveston Bay. Prevailing winds from these bodies of water bring heat and moisture to the Houston area throughout much of the year. Summers are long, hot, and humid, while winters are more mild. Houston sees ample rainfall and the occasional hurricane.
In coastal climates close to water, your windows and doors are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to help maintain door integrity.
Areas that experience hurricanes and tropical storms may wish to consider impact glass.
