Eric Hulsman On Preparing Your Home For Hurricane Season

We are gradually approaching the US hurricane and tropical storm season. The months between August and November are the peak of the hurricane season in the country. The entire season is described by the significant and unfortunate loss of lives and property. Investing in sufficient planning and preparing your home for the hurricane season can help prevent or mitigate the extent of the damage. Here are some tips on what to do in preparation for the hurricane season.

Spruce up Your Home’s Structural Integrity

Thousands of homes get blown away by intense storms due to poor structural integrity. In preparation for this year’s hurricane season, you may want to take some time and inspect your home for potential existing damages on the roof and walls. Sagging roofs and walls with cracks will easily give in once a slight storm blows through. Repairing any structural damages ensures that your house can sustain more forceful wind gusts.

Procure Insurance

In preparation for the potential damage that your home will sustain, you may think of reviewing your existing home insurance policy or even taking a new policy for your home. The policy cover helps cushion you from the costly damages that you could sustain during a major storm. It also enables you to recover as quickly as possible from hurricane damages, such as flood water damage to your home.

Inspect Your Drainage System

Your home’s drainage system will probably be the first thing to fail in the event of heavy flooding. Spend time clearing any drainage ways, including gutters and sub pumps, to remove any debris that may clog and hinder water flow.

Seal Your Windows and Add Shutters

Any openings in your home, including windows, doors, and air conditioning, should be properly inspected for any pre-existing damages, cracks, and gaps. The windows should be properly sealed with waterproof material to keep out rainwater. Windows and doors should be reinforced with additional shutters or metallic grills to prevent debris being hurled by storms from smashing into your house.

Restock Your Supplies

The hurricane season will probably require you to stay indoors for safety reasons. You should, therefore, think of restocking your supplies, including food, fuel, such as gasoline for your vehicle, portable gas cylinders, and a portable electric generator to generate power in case outages occur.
