Ah, summer. Time for barbeques on the back patio, baseball and ice cream. We hope your summer is full of nothing but sunshine, but unfortunately, some of nature’s most powerful storms take place between swim meets and summer strolls. Be sure to get your house ready for tornado season with a few simple steps:
- Trim your trees: Get rid of any overhanging tree branches that may blow onto your house. Pay special attention to dead trees and limbs, which are especially prone to falling.
- Check the roof: Roofs are one of the weakest parts of your home when it comes to tornado-force winds. Make sure you don’t have loose shingles, which can easily be blown off in a storm.
- Shut it up: If you have exterior shutters, keep them closed when a storm is on its way to keep your glass intact.
Sometimes all the prevention in the world isn’t enough in the face of a tornado. Is your home protected in case of a total loss? Talk to us; we can help make sure you have the coverage you need.
