Southern New England Climate Recommendations
Southern New England receives abundant precipitation around the year. No stranger to heavy snow and rainfall, the coastal regions of Southern Rhode Island and Massachusetts are prone to nor’easters and severe weather storms. Winters here tend to be cold, although warmer than inland parts of the region thanks to the proximity of the Atlantic Ocean, while summer, spring and fall months are pleasant. Stay comfortable year-round with insulating patio door glass.
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.
Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood with exterior aluminum cladding are ideal for withstanding the elements.
In coastal climates close to water, your windows 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 patio door integrity.
