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.
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.
Storm doors2 provide an additional layer of protection from the mix of precipitation, preserving the look of your front door for years to come.
2Storm doors are not offered with wood entry doors. Adding a storm door to a wood entry door would void the warranty.
