Staying Safe During Storms

If there's one thing we know about storms, it's that they can appear and cause damage in any season, even if it's not the typical storm season. Since a storm could happen at any time, there's only one way to ensure the safety of your family and home: PREPAREDNESS!

Not only will ensuring your home is storm-ready keep you and your loved ones safe, but it's the easiest and best way to keep you from spending loads of money on repairs after-the-fact! Preventing future damage starts by fixing any existing damage within the home, especially within the roof.

Damage to your home's roof can be caused by many factors like winter, hail, lightning, animals, etc. If you're not sure about the state of your roof, look for these common indicators that let you know it may be time for some repairs:

  1. Roof is missing shingles.
  2. Areas of the roof are sagging/bending.
  3. Animal footprints/signs of animal are on the roof.
  4. Holes/gaps in roofing that may have been caused by TV satellites or other equipment are present.

Tending to your roof before a storm occurs increases the likelihood that it will be able to withstand a storm. Taking these precautions may not prevent all storm damage from happening but it will minimize its severity as well as decrease your home's chances of suffering from storm damage in the future.
