Hurricane season can sneak up on us every year and being prepared with your roofing materials in Florida can help you remain proactive and prevent the chance for damage. Here are some of the best ways that you can prepare for the upcoming hurricane season:
Check Your Insurance Policy
Make sure that you’re checking in on your insurance policy and the amount of coverage that you have for your roofing systems. That you keep on hand and make sure that you can find your coverage as required.
Preparation in The Backyard
Make sure that you’re stocking up on items like plywood, nails, tarps, and items that you may need to survive if the power is cut off. Securing items in your backyard and making sure that items like patio furniture won’t have the chance to blow around can be crucial.
Have a List of Contractors on Hand
If you need emergency repairs throughout the hurricane season it’s important to have a vetted list of contractors available. Having a professional in mind that you could call for your roofing repairs can be crucial to preparing for the hurricane season.
Get Roofing Maintenance, Inspections, And Cleaning
Clean out all gutters, downspouts, and drains. Remove all overhanging trees, secure loose branches, and make sure that you are able to schedule a roofing inspection with a local contractor.
Keep some of these top ideas in mind as you are preparing for hurricane season in preventing problems with your roof.
