How to Prepare Your Roof Before a Hurricane

We all know that hurricane season is around the corner, our experts are here to help you prepare for this season by taking precautions to minimizing the damage done by hurricanes and strong winds. Don’t wait until its too late! These 5 steps of precautions will keep your home and family safe and save you money and time in the long run.  

Expert inspection

High-quality commercial and residential roofing inspection services will identify any potential weaknesses. You want to leave the roof strong and durable even through a hurricane. We do not recommend trying to inspect the roof for any damage by yourself. You could have an accident that would leave you with fatal injuries. 

Fix the flaws and leaks

In case of a leaky roof or loose shingles, have it fixed by a licensed Brevard County Roofing technician. Loose shingles, leaky roofs, and damaged tiles will lead to further damage to the roof during hurricanes. Fixing them can improve the resistance of the roof.

Observe best practices about trees

If any trees are hanging over the roof, trim them to avoid any damage they may cause during the hurricane. Strong winds may break the trees and their branches. Such branches and trees can fall on the roof, destroying it.

Inspect and clean the gutters

Check for any debris in the gutters or valleys of the roof and remove them. Clearing up the gutters will allow water to flow smoothly instead of building up on the roof. Such buildups can lead to roof leakages.

Check the soffit and fascia.

Survey the soffit boards and fascia for any rotten wood and have them repaired as soon as possible by a roofing services company. You do not need to climb on the roof to check the fascia and soffit boards. Just walk around the house and inspect the metal trim below the overhand area of the roof. Rotten wood will weaken the roofing structure.
