Is Your Roof Prepared for Hurricane Season?

Hurricane Season

It is never too early to start prepping for hurricane season. It is best to make yourself prepared as soon as possible so that you aren’t waiting until the last minute to make sure you and your families are safe. This will help keep you from last minute price increases on roofing materials and labor costs once the season starts our way.

Ways to Prepare

Inspection: This is the quickest and easiest way to prepare yourself from something major happening. You may not have realized that part of your roof was damaged or that something is wrong that can be easily fixed by calling someone out to inspect your roof. An inspector will give you a detailed report of what needs to be done and tips to help your roof make it through the next storm. This is a good way to ask questions, get estimates, and above all, have peace of mind that you and your investment are going to be okay.

Cut those trees: If you have ever watched the news during hurricane season or any storm for that matter, you know how dangerous a fallen down tree can be during this time. Large trees and branches often hang over parts of your roof and in the event of some major wind, they can become dangerous objects of destruction and can take your roof down quickly. Take the time to cut down large branches and trim back trees during this time of year.

Be vigilant: It is easy to call out an inspector to look at your roof, but you don’t need to do this all the time. You can easily keep an eye on your roof year-round by grabbing a pair of binoculars and looking around for yourself. Please do not walk around on the roof, for your own safety, but pay attention to what is happening up there. You can spot a missing shingle or a bit of damage easily.
