Seattle Climate Recommendations
Seattle is known for its ever-changing climate, but as its residents will tell you, as long as you expect rain, you’ll be prepared for whatever the weather holds in store. It rains nearly 50 percent of the time in Seattle, particularly in the fall and winter months. The summer, considered the driest season of the year in the city, offers a temporary respite from the year-round precipitation. But when the skies clear, Seattle is often quite pleasant due to its temperate climate, with only a few days out of the year that are either unbearably hot or freezing cold.
Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Doors with panes of glass with Low-E may help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and helping keep the heat in.
Stormy weather in the fall, winter, and spring necessitates materials that are built to last. Wood with exterior aluminum cladding is great for helping to withstand the elements.
