It’s not possible to accurately predict exactly where storms will hit. But you can do things today that will protect your home from damage.
Ensure Your Home Is Ready to Withstand a Spring Storm
Check out these projects and see if they merit a place on your home improvement priority list.
Be sure your gutters are cleaned out. When your gutters are in good shape, it allows water around your home to flow the right way. If gutters are full of debris, they can overflow and cause water damage.
Don’t ignore branches that are overhanging your home. Many people enjoy having mature trees in their yards. But they can cause damage if limbs are overhanging your home or garage during heavy winds. Cut them early.
Get your roof ready to deal with rainy weather. Look for missing shingles and signs of leaks. Then you can repair them.
