The hurricane season officially started on June the 1st, with three named storms passing us — and more to come. Add in all the heavy rains every day and with tornados passing through Orlando a few weeks ago, we definitely can say your roof may need attention. Peak hurricane season is usually in September, so higher volume of rains and storms are coming. Is your roof ready? Here are just a few ways on how to prepare your roof for hurricane season.
Know the Condition
First, know the condition of your roof. If your roof is already in poor condition due to age or previous leaks, expect it may be unable to keep taking a beating without further damage this season. Storm damage to your roof can create even more damage than the eye can see, including mold rot, which can accumulate extra expense. From repair to keeping your roof watertight, there are so many ways to help your roof to endure the storms.
Clean Your Gutters and Drains
Your drainage systems contribute to the protection of your roof from storm damage. Heavy rain can cause serious damage to your drainage system and gutters. Clear out your gutters and drainage system to ensure that rainwater can go flow thoroughly and efficiently through easily and onto the ground. This is not just for residential roofs but commercial businesses as well may suffer leaks due to backed up gutters and drains.
Have a Roof Maintenance Plan
