Over 2,000 storms are causing damage and injuries worldwide at any given time. This is why it’s important to take protective measures for yourself and your home.
Find out about conditions you should be prepared for during a severe thunderstorm from your trusted roofing contractor, M&A Roof Home Improvement.
Make sure that your car is parked in the garage before a thunderstorm hits. Hail can possibly come with the storm, which can cause dents and cracks in the windshield and glass of your car. Ensure your doors are secured with heavy-duty bolts at the top and bottom of the door frame.
Hail inflicts the most damage on roofs. Damaged shingles can allow water to enter the roof deck, which can deteriorate the ceiling and walls. They will eventually cause more leaking when not addressed immediately. For reliable roof repair services, choose M&A Roof Home Improvement.
Wind & Tornadoes
During a severe storm, winds can reach at least 300 miles per hour, which can rip out the siding of your home. Reduce the risk of flying debris by clearing out your yard. Trim tree branches to prevent falling limbs. Secure your window shutters and tie down any object that can get carried by the wind. You can invest in a storm cellar if your area is prone to high winds and tornadoes.
Flooding can cause significant and costly damage to your home. To prevent water buildup, make sure that the ground is angled away from your foundation. It’s also essential to keep your gutters and downspouts clog-free. Keep your gutters clean and place your heating system to an upper floor level to prevent flood water from reaching it.
