In part one of the Roof Emergency Guide Blog, we discussed what homeowners should do when faced with emergency roof repairs. In this article, you’ll learn how to avoid roof emergencies in the first place.
Heavy roof damage could be avoided if you do the following three preventive measures. Wili Roofing, the leading roof installation services company, discusses how they help you dodge excessive roof repairs.
Secure Outdoor Items and Surrounding Trees
Your outdoor items like picnic tables and lawn furniture should be secured or tucked away in a safer place inside your home when a storm strikes. For bigger outdoor items, you should nail them down to the ground to avoid damage from the wind-driven rain.
Another thing you should secure outside your home are the trees surrounding it. With permission from the landowner or local government, you should trim the thick and weakened branches to prevent them from causing bigger problems when the storm hits.
Keep Your Gutters Clean
The roof often falls prey to water damage because of inadequate drainage. If your gutters are underperforming, getting gutter repair services is the best way to prevent significant roof damage.
When gutter problems are left untreated, they have the potential to damage your roof, siding and even your landscape.
Schedule a Roof Inspection
Call in an expert days in advance to check on the integrity of your roof, and find out if it can possibly withstand the coming storm. It’s an efficient way to learn if there is developing damage on your roof that would worsen during the storm. You can also call a gutter contractor to see if your gutters are capable of holding large volumes of rainwater.
