Spring Storms are No Match For Your Home with These Easy Steps

Table of Contents

Wind, hail, and storm damage can be a mess, but luckily, this mess can be prevented!

Spring brings so many wonderful things into our lives, like flowers, warmer weather, and sunshine. But, it also brings the promise of more thunderstorms. Worst case scenario, your home could face some severe weather damage this spring. It’s best to prepare for situations like these so you can rest with ease. To protect your home from damage, here are some key steps to consider:

Repair and replace shingles and siding

During a storm, heavy winds can cause your shingles to break free, especially if they are loose or damaged. If you have a missing shingle, your home is even more vulnerable to wind damage, as shingles are used to protect your home against external damage from the elements. It’s also a good idea to invest in quality siding for the same reasons.

Clean your gutters

Make sure your gutters are clear from any blockage so that water properly flows away from your home in case of a flooding disaster. The spout should be turned in the opposite direction of your house.

Get a roof inspection

Your roof is one of the most vulnerable areas for weather damage. If you have existing damages, it’s possible that they can exacerbate future storm complications. Getting an inspection is a helpful step in further damage prevention. If you’d like to skip a professional inspection and DIY it, here are some things you should keep an eye out for:

  • cracks and weaknesses in the chimney
  • hanging limbs over the roof
  • pooling water
