3 Storm Damage Prevention Tips for This Hurricane Season

By Stacy Mellete

Heavy rains and strong winds can wreak havoc on the inside and outside of your home. The only thing standing between you and these forces of nature is your roofing system. As such, you’ll need to make sure that it’s up to the task.

Preventing costly storm damage to your roof starts with basic maintenance that you can do yourself. Affordable Roofing Systems is the expert in storm damage restoration in Tampa, FL. Now at the peak of hurricane season here in Florida, we recommend employing the following tips:

Ensure Your Roof Has a Clean Bill Of Health

Schedule a professional roof inspection to make sure it is still in good condition. If there are parts that need repairs, get it done right away. We’ll perform a thorough evaluation of your roof and provide you a detailed report of our findings. We also offer emergency roof repairs in Tampa, FL, and its nearby areas, so we’ll quickly patch or replace any section as needed.

Check Your Attic

Make sure there is proper ventilation since it is crucial to the life span and performance of your roof. Remember that a poorly vented attic can void a manufacturer’s warranty on asphalt shingles.

Reinforce Your Roof Structure

We can install metal “hurricane” straps that connect the roof to the walls of your home. This extra structural support can hold your roof firmly in place against the high winds of a hurricane. It is also essential to keep your gutters, gullies, and drains clear, so they can carry water away quickly and efficiently. A blocked downspout or trough may crack or shatter under extreme conditions.

We know too well the hassles of dealing with these issues. That’s why we are an expert roofing contractor providing  prompt hail damage repair in Tampa, FL. We’ll make the process as seamless as possible and fortify your roofing to prevent another occurrence.
