Tips on Minimizing Storm Damage to Your Home This Summer
You’d think that with record scorching summer temperatures, you wouldn’t have to worry about storms anymore. But they’re still possible in summer. In fact, summer storms are all the more troublesome because they can come and go without any warning. That’s why you need to make sure your home is prepared for them at all times.
KAT Construction, your go-to company in the state for all your hail damaged siding restoration needs, shares some tips on minimizing storm damage to your home this summer.
Trim Overhanging Tree Limbs or Cut Down Diseased Trees
Storm winds can easily knock overhanging tree limbs and diseased trees onto your roof. Before they fall down and damage your roof, cut them down.
Schedule Periodic Roof Inspections
Speaking of roof damage, you need to make sure your roof has no pre-existing damage. Apart from summer storms, you also need to take precautions to safeguard your home from hail damage. Hail can easily exacerbate pre-existing damage, like loosened shingles or tiny cracks on your roof.
And even without the threat of sudden summer storms or hailstorms, it’s still important to have your roof frequently maintained and inspected. By fixing relatively minor damage before they balloon into a bigger and costlier problem, you’re saving yourself a lot of money in potential repairs.
Clean Your Gutters
Keep in mind roof maintenance often involves cleaning your gutters. In summer, leaves wilt faster, which means there’s a higher chance of your gutters getting clogged with foliage. Left unattended, clogged gutters may cause rainwater to spill over, damaging parts of your roof and even your foundation and siding.
It’s also easy to miss signs of early roof damage. That’s why you need to make sure you only hire reputable contractors.
