Storm-Ready Roofing: Essential Preparations

Advantage Remodeling and Roofing emphasizes the importance of preparing your roof to withstand severe weather conditions. Ensuring your roof is storm-ready is crucial to protect your home and family.

Regular Roof Inspections

Regular inspections are key to maintaining your roof’s integrity. Schedule a professional inspection to identify and address potential issues before they become major problems. Inspect for:

  • Loose or missing shingles
  • Damaged flashing
  • Signs of water damage or leaks
  • Debris buildup

Gutter Maintenance

Clean and well-maintained gutters are essential for directing water away from your roof and foundation. Ensure gutters and downspouts are free from debris and functioning correctly.

Trimming Overhanging Trees

Overhanging branches can cause significant damage during a storm. Trim trees and branches that are close to your roof to prevent them from breaking and falling on your home.

Reinforce Roofing Materials

Consider reinforcing your roof with durable materials. Impact-resistant shingles and metal roofing can provide added protection against high winds and hail. 

Secure Loose Items

Ensure all rooftop accessories, such as antennas and satellite dishes, are securely fastened. Loose items can become projectiles in high winds, causing damage to your roof and home.

Install Storm Straps

Storm straps can help secure your roof to the walls of your home, providing additional stability during severe weather. This can prevent your roof from lifting off during strong winds.

Emergency Repair Kit

Prepare an emergency repair kit with essential items such as tarps, roofing cement, and nails. This can help you make temporary repairs in case of damage during a storm.
