Outdoor preparation checklist...
The reports call for severe weather including high winds. In storms with high wind many injuries or damage to property happen because of flying debris. That's why securing outdoor spaces is an important part of your emergency plan.
A few minutes of preparation can prevent big damage, and even help to keep your family safe during the storm. Here is a quick checklist of items you should secure in order to ensure you give this storm as little debris to throw at your house as possible.
What to do About Wind Damage to Your Roof
High winds can tear shingles or send them sailing off your roof. It can also curl or lift shingles, breaking the seal between them. When this happens your underlayment is exposed, leaving your roof's structure vulnerable to the elements.
Follow this short checklist after a storm to make sure your roof maintains its integrity, and to mitigate any damage it may sustain.
No matter who you choose for your roof inspection and/or roof repair, you will want to vet your vendor. Choose a roofing company that is in good standing with the Better Business Bureau, and with a reputable roofing manufacturer. (Joye Roofing holds an A+ with the BBB, and we are a Preferred Contractor through Owens Corning as well as CertainTeed.)
So stay safe during a storm, and make sure you inspect and take notes promptly afterward.
