Preventing Storm Damage To Your SOMD Home
Severe storms can come out of nowhere and we want your home to be prepared and protected for when they do. Preparing your home can be what saves you from having to deal with the cost of damage in repairs.
- Remove Dead Limber: Trim trees and bushes around your property to help prevent branches from falling onto your home from heavy winds. Be sure to remove the entire tree or bush if it is dead.
- Secure Outdoors Items: Tables, chairs, grills, decorations. High winds, rain or hail can damage or move your outdoor items. Bring them inside if you can or make sure they are secured to your home
- Drainage System: Clear out your gutters, drain tiles and pipes to allow the precipitation to flow properly off your home.
- Inspect Roof: Check for whole, cracks or loss ends that could be further damaged by the storm. Have repaired to avoid water from entering your home.
Allows be aware of the weather. It is better to take extra precautions in event of a storm rather than having to pay the cost of not.
