With hurricane season in full swing, we want to help you prepare your home for the big storms headed our way. So, here are a few tips to help you prepare from ready.gov:

  • Clean out drains and gutters.
  • Install hurricane shutters or cover your windows with plywood.
  • Trim trees and bushes in your yard. Remove any landscaping debris from the area.

Unfortunately, even with preparation, home damage can still happen during a hurricane. Missing shingles and roof damage are a common result of high winds from hurricanes. Kiplinger gives the following advice to help protect your roof during a hurricane:

“Consider hurricane straps to ensure your roof is bolted to the rest of your house. And inspect your roof tiles or shingles to make sure they are secure. Use roofing cement to fix any loose tiles to prevent them from becoming lethal projectiles during a storm and damaging the underlying roofing material. Seal any areas where wires enter the home, minimizing the chance of water damage during heavy wind and rain.”

And don’t forget, your personal safety comes first. Stay inside and stay safe during a storm.
