How To Prepare Your Home For Hurricane Season

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in , , .

With the fall months finally getting into full swing, your mind will likely wander to the most fun aspects of the season. Pumpkin-flavored drinks, fall foliage, and apple picking are some of the most fun activities you can do! However, as fun as the fall season is, there are a few critical things to watch out for. The main thing to keep in mind is that fall is the start of hurricane season. It can wreak havoc on your home if you aren’t properly prepared, so how do you ensure that this doesn’t happen? We show you how to gear up for hurricane season below!

Secure Your Roof

One of the most critical home exterior elements that you can secure before the season is your home’s roof. Fall is considered to be the most optimal time to conduct a roof inspection, and you may want to do the same before the storm season starts. If you notice any problems with it, contact a professional to get them resolved quickly. The earlier you can secure and seal your roof, the better off you’ll be if a hurricane hits. Water can seep through broken shingles and cause costly damage to your home’s foundation, so make sure that you avoid this worst-case outcome!

Boarding Up Windows and Doors

Hurricanes can bring about a lot more damage than torrential downpours. Wind speeds within the storm cause a ton of debris to go flying everywhere. We’re not talking about your average debris, either; things like street signs, telephone poles, mailboxes and more can get swept up and potentially crash through your windows and doors. For this reason, it’s always good to properly board them up if you have notice of a hurricane arriving. If you don’t have storm shutters, board them up with sheets of plywood.

Clean Up Your Yard

Remember the debris we mentioned earlier? Did we mention that the things in your yard can contribute to this flying debris? You should go through your yard and secure any loose items, such as grills, bicycles and basketball nets, in a safe location. If you have a garage that has a good amount of space, this can be an effective storage method to use until the storm passes.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
