Before The Storm Tips

5/10/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO knows that storms are not set  to a specific schedule, that is why all SERVPRO franchises keep their doors open 24/7/365. We have the resources to handle any size disaster with a quicker response time than any of our competitors. Roof damage caused by thunderstorms is a major problem for homeowners, here are some tips to prevent roof damage to your home:

  • Trim trees and remove dead branches so they will not damage your home if they fall because of wind.
  • Clear gutters and downspouts of debris. As the leaves fall, make sure they are not building up in the gutters. 
  • Check for any roof damage. Pay attention to surface bubbles, areas with missing gravel on flat roofs, damaged or missing shingles or tiles on sloped roofs.
  • Check the flashing on the roof to make sure it is in good condition to help prevent water from seeping through.
  • If your rood needs replacing, consider impact-resistant roofing materials, especially if you live in an area where hail storms are common.

Remember SERVPRO is always here to help. Call your local SERVPRO storm response team at 228-396-3965 for all your storm remediation needs!
