How To Minimize Storm Damage To Your Home

By Stacy Mellete

The Tampa Bay area is no stranger to torrential tropical storms. Hurricanes are a reality, and the common high winds in the area pose a real danger to your roof. As experts in providing storm damage restoration, we discuss how to help minimize storm damage to your home.

Remove Dead Tree Branches

Dead or withered tree branches pose a great risk not just to your roof but to your home. They can easily break off during a storm, and the wind can send them flying directly onto your property. A large branch falling on your roof can severely damage it and necessitate costly repairs. You can minimize and even prevent this from happening by removing dead tree branches and cutting back those that hang over your house.

Have Your Roof Regularly Inspected

Prevention is always better than the cure, and doing preemptive repair and maintenance on your roof can help it weather a storm better. Apart from storm damage restoration, we also do in-depth roof inspections. We can identify problem areas that could give way during a storm. Let us repair these and you can save on more costly repair work if a storm does hit your area.

Clean Your Gutters

Finally, make sure you keep your gutters clean. Clogged gutters are a hassle to maintain, but a clean gutter free of debris allows water to naturally flow through it. This is vital when a storm hits because a clean gutter minimizes water damage to the rest of your home.
