Prepare Your Home For Wind Damage
At SERVPRO of Greenwich, we want to help you prepare for the possibility of wind damage. While it is not a huge issue in Fairfield County, it can be some of the most costly to remediate. This is because wind damage can cause massive issues with your roof and exterior, which may cause other secondary problems down the road.
That being said, preparing for wind damage is not too hard. Below, we’ve listed a few ways that you can insulate yourself against major damage from wind during a storm or otherwise. Following any or all of these actions may save you both headache and financial burden in the future.
Check your roof - make sure that shingles are all properly secured so that wind will not tear them and blow them away.
Trim your trees - loose and dead limbs can easily be blown into your house, which can cause major damage.
Dispose of loose debris - keeping a tidy yard will eliminate items that could potentially hit your home. This can even extend to smaller items that you keep outside.
Deal with larger items - items like a grill, outdoor furniture, and bicycles should either be secured outside or stored inside before a storm.
It is important to contact a damage restoration professional as soon as you notice any storm damage. SERVPRO of Greenwich has over 30 years of experience working with people who have had damage to their property. If you have any type of damage, call us immediately at 203.324.1642.
