Preparing your home for Storms

As an adult, one of the most frustrating things you can experience is the feeling you get when something happens you know you could have stopped had you listened to that little nagging voice in your head.
“I need to remember to get my tires replaced…”
“I really should see the dentist….”
“ I should check when my rego expires.”
You can also add “I should get the place ready in case there is a storm” to the list of important things that deserve more attention than a passing thought.
As homeowners, preparing for storms and extreme weather conditions is a chore that shouldn’t be ignored, especially in Australia, and one that could save you a major headache and a lot of money in the long run.

You can prepare your home for storms by:

• Trimming trees and overhanging branches
• Securing loose items that could be swept up in strong winds such as outdoor furniture and toys
And potentially most importantly, ensuring your roof is ready to keep your family safe and dry.

Signs your roof might need some attention include:

• Water stains on your ceiling and eaves
• Blistering or peeling paint
• Small bits debris that can resemble black sand building up from deteriorating shingles
• Leaks during rain
Unfortunately, we sometimes don’t get much notice when it comes to storms. And by the time you realise something needs to be done, it could be too late. The solution? Be a step ahead of the game and have your roof inspected by industry experts to ensure it is in the best condition possible.
