It’s that time of year again where the temperature begins to rise and we edge closer to storm season.

Storms are often unpredictable and arrive with little to no warning, which makes it integral to understand your risk. The perfect plan is to start with ensuring your roof is in good condition.

Your roof is the first line of defense against the elements and a severe storm can cause your home significant structural damage if it is unknowingly left in bad condition. Although there may be warning signs such as stained ceilings due to roof leaks, many indications of a damaged roof go unnoticed by its occupiers.

How you can prepare

There are a few ways to ensure you are ahead of the game when it comes to preparing your home for storm season.

  • Clean out your gutters which may have collected leaves, branches, and debris over time. That way you can see if there are any cracks which could greatly weaken your gutters when the storm hits.
  • Check your roof for rusting, pre-existing damage, or loose metal sheets that may worsen with a storm
  • Trim back any overhanging trees in your garden near surrounding powerlines. This could be particularly dangerous if they were to break and fall on your home due to harsh winds.
