Hurricane season is upon us and this means that you may be wondering how to protect your home against any damage. There are many ways to do so that are included in the infographic below and will help you better understand what action you can take against hurricanes to stay safe and out of harm’s way.
One of the best ways to fortify your home against hurricanes is to install a quality metal roof. You can get in touch with a roofing company for a quote and to learn more about your options. A new metal roof can withstand the strong wings, protect from hail damage, and are less prone to falling or peeling apart. It’s also wise to regularly clean out your gutters.
There are also further steps you can take for more protection such as installing high-impact windows and making sure you get the right types of shutters to hold up against the winds. In addition, take a look at your garage door and make sure it’s hurricane-rated and can help protect against water damage and prevent the winds from taking off the door or objects from puncturing it.
If a hurricane is approaching then you should also make sure you take the time to trim down your trees and other bushes. Dismantle and bring in any outdoor furniture or playground equipment to keep it from breaking or flying around. Also, fasten all doors and latches in and around your home so that you can feel as secure as possible from the storm.
