Taking care of your roof should be a priority. This part of your home gives you shade from the sun, shields you from heavy rains and helps keep your family safe. After an extreme weather event hits your area, you should schedule a professional inspection. Doing so will allow you to catch and fix issues that can later lead to extensive water damage.
Doing these things before a storm can improve a residential roofing system’s protection against damage.
Keep Nearby Trees Trimmed
While trees make a great addition to your landscaping, they have the possibility of falling during a serious storm. When this happens, your roof and the rest of your home can suffer severe damage. You can minimize this risk by regularly trimming trees surrounding your property.
Schedule Regular Gutter Cleaning
Part of good roof maintenance is keeping your gutters cleaned. Unobstructed gutters will do a better job of diverting water away from your home. They will prevent water from pooling on your roof, which can cause issues like sagging and water damage. With clean and well-maintained gutters, rainwater is less likely to back up to the roof and overflow to your exterior – preventing flooding, foundation damage and other moisture-related issues.
Get Rid of Debris in Your Property
If there is a storm forecast, remove debris around your property before the weather gets bad. It’s also best to remove outdoor items that can potentially get carried by high winds. You can keep your outdoor furniture in your garage or shed to ensure your home’s safety during the storm.
