Gone With the Wind?

Hurricane season, which starts this June, goes together with wind damage. Even if you live in an area where hurricanes are not expected, localized storms can cause a extensive damage, costing billions each year in the United States. Homeowners in Superior can take precautions before a storm hits to reduce the chance of wind damage to their house:

  •          Secure or store any items that could come loose in a major wind storm. This includes tools, toys, patio furniture, portable grills, and trash cans.
  •          Repair or replace any loose fence boards and ensure that gates are closed.
  •          Check trees for branches that are unhealthy or overhanging the house and have them removed.
  •          Repair any loose roof shingles, siding, and shutters that could tear off in high winds.
  •          Inspect the condition of your garage door. This is also a good opportunity to familiarize yourself with the manual garage door override in case of a power outage.
