Strengthen your windows and doors (4/5)

List item

Hurricanes and windows are a bad combination, so it’s important to make sure the glass cannot break and fly into your home. Back in ye olden days (just kidding, I’m literally 22), we would tape thick cardboard to the windows with masking tape, both inside and outside, to keep them from breaking. This is not a perfect method, so if you can, nailing wooden planks to cover the glass is very effective and more resistant. Nowadays, you can even buy window and door covers like this specifically for storm protection, but these tend to be more pricey.
