How to Prepare Your Property for Bad Weather
If you live in our part of the country, you know the difference between a poor forecast and really bad weather. It’s something we live with every year: hurricanes tend to be an annual reality.
But our lives go one despite the storms – and it’s important that our properties do, too. So how do you prepare when the weather forecast looks nasty?
5 Steps to Get Ready for A Storm
Inclimate weather is variable. Sometimes it lasts for a few hours; sometimes it lasts for a week. Sometimes we get plenty of warning; sometimes it happens in a sudden fury.
So it’s important to be flexible. But there are a few basic practices you can incorporate into your life as a homeowner to mitigate damage:
- Stay vigilant
Don’t ignore the weather forecast. If you see that a storm is coming, take it seriously!
- Know our region
Spoiler alert: we tend to get major storms or hurricanes in the spring and autumn. Prepare your property ahead of time to mitigate risk from the outset.
- Trim your limbs
Are limbs hanging close to the house? They need to go. These will be the first to fly off in the event of a storm – and your home could be collateral damage.
- Inspect your trees
It’s normal to get attached to trees on your property. But if they’re dead or leaning over your home, they pose a serious risk.
- Have an expert on speed dial
