Is Your Roof Prepared for Extreme Weather?

On June 1st, the hurricane season officially begins in Florida. Is your roof up to the five-month hurricane season’s pounding winds and torrential downpours? Follow these guidelines to keep your most valuable asset safe from the effects of inclement weather.

Trim Nearby Trees

Trees and branches can easily be blown into your home by strong hurricane winds. Trimming damaged, dead, or overgrown trees can help protect your home or business from storm damage by reducing the potential for wind and hail.

Perform Regular Maintenance

Even if you perform routine maintenance on your roof, being proactive before and during hurricane season will help ensure that your roof is prepared to withstand the worst of the storm. When you perform simple roofing maintenance, you can catch minor problems before they turn into more serious (and expensive) issues.

Clear Gutters and Drains

Rain flows more easily from the roof to the ground when the gutters and drains are free of debris. If you don’t get your gutters and drains cleaned out before hurricane season, standing water will weaken your roof’s ability to withstand leaks and other damage.

Schedule a Roof Evaluation

Before anything else, the best way to be ready for the unpredictable Florida weather is to have your roof inspected annually by a professional roofing company. A skilled roofer will be able to find even the smallest signs of trouble on your roof, such as leaks.
