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.
With persistent clouds and drizzle nearly all year round, consider investing in moisture-resistant window materials, such as fiberglass or vinyl.
Double or Triple Pane Glass
Need to cut your energy costs? Invest in energy-efficient double- or triple-pane windows that are filled with insulating gas for added thermal efficiency.
Ensure your home’s windows are prepared for the seasons. Wood windows with exterior aluminum cladding can help protect your home from the elements.
