Hail Damage Prevention

Hail Damage Prevention

If you live in an area where hail storms occur every now and then, it is a good idea for you to find ways to prevent extensive damage from happening. While you cannot really control what nature does to your home, there are sensible measures that you can use to help reduce and even stop damage from occurring. These suggestions are worth noting and applying before the next hailstorm comes your way.

Inspect Your Roof and Repair It

Always keep your roof in tiptop condition by checking it regularly for loose or broken shingles. Replace any damage shingles immediately and if possible, replace these with those that are class 3 or class 4 shingles, which are durable enough to withstand hail.

Ensure Your Gutters and Drainpipes are Clean

Make sure that these are clear of debris such as twigs, dirt, leaves, and other things that may cause clogging when inclement weather happens. You don’t want to experience water damage from an overflowing gutter on top of hail damage to your home.

Check the Inside of Your Home for Leaks

Go to your attic and inspect the inside of your roof as well to determine if there are leaks and parts that need repair. The outside of your roof may be fine but if the inside is weak and damaged, you might end up with structural issues or large holes in your ceiling.

Install Storm Shutters on Your Windows

Protect your windows by installing shutters that you can quickly close when there is news of a hailstorm approaching. If you cannot install storm shutters, have materials ready for when you will need to cover windows temporarily to protect these.

Remove Weak Tree Branches and Prune Trees

Trimming your trees of branches that may fall on your home before a storm hits will lower the chances of damage to your roof. Cut off branches that are likely to break in strong winds and those that are located near windows.

Store All Patio Furniture and Vehicles Safely

Hail can severely damage cars and other things that you leave outside when this happens. Park your car in your garage when a hail storm is predicted and store anything outdoors that may suffer damage in your shed or inside your home.
