How to prepare your home for a storm
Clear limbs and trim trees
During a storm, dead tree limbs can get loose and cause damage to a home’s exterior or even puncture a window. Heavy rain can also cause trees with shallow root systems to pull out of the ground.
Ensure that your fences are properly secured so to help prevent them from being lifted up and thrown against the house by heavy winds.
Heavy winds can cause items like patio furniture and large toys to damage the exterior of your home. It’s a good idea to anchor outdoor furniture or bring it indoors before a storm hits. You should also move anything in your yard that can become flying debris inside your house or garage.
Help prevent damage inside your house by having downspouts drain away from your home and clear your gutters of any debris.
