Ways you can help protect your property from damaging winds
There are a number of ways you can help protect your property from damaging winds. Some are listed below, but keep the “Two R’s” in mind: reinforce and remove.
Have your garage door reinforced by a professional.
Remove or anchor loose items on your property that could be blown around and tossed by the wind. This includes trash cans, grills and outdoor furniture.
Hire a professional to remove any large or dying trees and branches that could be blown over onto your home.
We don’t always receive advanced notice about straight-line or damaging winds. But, as we all know, being proactive with some of the above preventive items may help to protect you from damage. Also, if you are building a new home or renovating an older home, make sure that the windows, walls and doors meet the building codes for you area.
