It is necessary to prep your home accordingly during Hurricane Season. In this blog, we will give you some tips on how to make sure your home is safe during this upcoming season.
Hurricane Season is from June through November.
Prepare for long-term outages.
- If you can, purchasing a generator may come in handy. If this is not an option, make sure to have plenty of batteries, candles, non-perishables, water, and anything else you can’t go a few days without.
- By cleaning your gutters, you can prevent roof damage or flooding inside your home.
Secure your home.
- Make sure everything on your porch is either moved inside or to a safe place where it won’t cause damage. Close or remove all shutters. Contemplate buying roof clips (to secure your roof from flying away), garage door braces, anchor anything large to the ground.
Verify Insurance coverage
- Check your homeowner’s policy and purchase additional flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program to ensure you have adequate protection if necessary.
