5 Tips to Prevent Storm Damage

News & Information > 5 Tips to Prevent Storm Damage
9/28/2017
Despite the impending season of winter, our weather seems to be increasing in temperature. Because of this irregularity, storm surges are becoming the norm. Although this part of the country does not encounter extremely destructive weather, it does experience some of the backlash.

Violent weather brings about a number of hazards that can affect your home. Incidences such as wind, water and fire damage are extremely likely, if not prepared for. Certain storms, such as thunderstorms, have the potential to create ongoing home issues.

Hazards such as dangerous winds that accompany storms, produce problems that can have a chain effect on your home. Severe winds can uplift dangerous objects, such as trees and yard items, ultimately causing water damage.

To ensure your home experiences the least damage produced by unsafe winds and severe rain storms, follow these five tips:

  • Inspect your garage door. If it’s not working properly, extreme weather could cause more damage.

  • Cover and secure glass windows and doors. During violent storms, items may burst through windows and doors. Consider investing in storm shutters. In addition, ensure doors do not have missing screws or loose hinges, which can lead to more damage during severe weather.

  • Secure shingles and roofing. Both shingles and roofing are prone to breaking free from homes during gusts of wind. Not only do they become possible projectiles, but create sections of your home that become vulnerable to flooding.

  • Inspect and Remove trees. To eliminate potential damage and danger, trees should be as far away from your home as their height when fully grown. They present great threat if they are too close, as they may become uplifted and fall over.

  • Anchor loose objects. Secure freestanding objects, such as grills and tables, by bolting them to the patio, or bringing them inside. This will prevent unwanted damage.
