To help you safeguard your property, we've compiled some essential tips for preparing your home for storms and handling water damage mitigation if needed.

Preparing Your Home for Summer Storms

  1. Roof Inspection: It's crucial to ensure your roof is in top condition to withstand the elements. Schedule a professional inspection to identify any damage or signs of wear and tear. Prompt repairs can prevent water damage during storms.

  2. Gutter Maintenance: Keep your gutters clear to prevent water from overflowing and seeping into your home. Regularly clean gutters and downspouts to avoid potential water damage.

  3. Tree and Shrub Maintenance: Trim back any overhanging branches that could pose a threat to your home during high winds or lightning storms. This proactive measure can prevent significant damage caused by falling branches.

  4. Secure Outdoor Furniture: Strong winds have the potential to toss around or damage outdoor furniture. Secure or store items properly to prevent them from becoming projectiles during storms.
