3 Tips To Protect Your Roof Before a Hurricane

As hurricane season kicks into gear with Hurricane Ian, now is the perfect time to look over your roof and take any necessary precautions in order to protect it. In the event of a hurricane, your roof is one of the most important factors in your safety. However, that only increases the importance of ensuring that you can protect your roof so that it can in turn protect you.

Even in Texas, where most of the state is safe from the direct force of the hurricane as it passes over the ocean, homes and commercial buildings are still at risk of being beaten pretty heavily by all the wind and rain. Luckily, First Out Roofing has a few tips to help you be prepared before a hurricane strikes.

Call Us For An Evaluation Before A Hurricane Blows In

The first step to protecting your roof is to call in professionals to see if there is any kind of damage that is already present on your roof. Existing damage could be expanded by the high winds and heavy rains of the hurricane. Our skilled team will come and assess your roof for any damage that might need to be repaired before the storm blows in. If there is any damage, it’s crucial that you have the chance to repair it before your home is hit too hard by any heavy storms. 

Keep Your Tree Limbs Trimmed

Your trees might not pose an obvious danger to your home right now, but once the wind and rain start getting heavier, any limbs that can be broken off of the tree can become a huge hazard. Not only that, but the acorns, birds’ nests, pinecones, and other items that normally stay safe in your trees can become projectiles that could damage not only your roof, but also your windows or cars. To keep your property safe, it’s always a good idea to trim your trees before hurricane season starts. Throughout the rest of the season (usually early November), keep those tree limbs trimmed. 

Clear Out Gutters And Drains

Just like your trees, your gutters and drains can contain items that can cause significant damage if they get launched through the air during the storm. Beyond that, big storms usually bring with them high volumes of rainwater as well as strong winds. Your gutters are meant to guide the water to a designated place that will keep the water from causing damage to your roof or the foundation of your home. Clogged drains and gutters make that impossible, and making sure they are cleared before a hurricane blows in could make a huge impact in your home’s safety.
