Precautionary steps to keep your home and office safe from storm damage

Even after watching the news and hearing the weather reports, bad weather can be unpredictable. So, try to take precautionary steps to keep your home and office safe from storm damage. 

It's a good idea to inspect your property before a storm hits. A leaky roof or window can cause big problems during extreme conditions such as a snow storm or heavy rain.

Some questions you may want to ask yourself as you inspect your home or business: 

  • Do all of your exterior doors and windows fit correctly?
  • Is your weather stripping in good condition?
  • When was the last time you took a look at your roof?

Loose shutters and rain gutters can also present a problem in high winds, as can unstable large trees. It might be a good idea to trim back trees and bushes with heavy branches, so that windows and vehicles are not in danger of storm damage in windy conditions.

Many homes have drainage ditches at the front of the property. Take time to inspect this area and remove debris or dirt that might obstruct the flow of water from a heavy rain. A clogged drainage ditch can cause a lot of damage by flooding your property during, or even after, a storm.
