According to siding replacement pros, the spring season is the time of the year that is mostly known for its agreeable weather conditions. Unfortunately, homeowners shouldn’t be fooled by this as it is possible for strong storms to happen during this time of the year. With that in mind, you should take the steps necessary to protect your home from storm and water damage.
Here are four ways you can protect your home from spring storm and water damage.
1. Secure Your Outdoor Furniture – As stated before, the spring season can still bring strong storms with it. Unfortunately, this can be a problem if you have any outdoor furniture as the strong winds brought by the storm can turn them into projectiles that can damage your home. With that in mind, before a storm even arrives in your area, make sure that you secure your outdoor furniture to prevent this from happening.
2. Make Sure Your Sump Pump is Working – Strong storms with heavy rains can easily cause flooding in your basement. Therefore, before this happens, make sure that your sump pump is working properly to prevent flooding. If needed, get a backup battery as well in case the power in your area goes out.
3. Inspect Your Siding or Roof for Damage – Water damage due to siding or roofing damage can be costly to repair and they can become a breeding ground for mold. Therefore, during the spring season, don’t hesitate to enlist the services of a residential and commercial roofer or a siding expert to inspect your home or building. That way, any damage that your roof or siding sustained can be repaired before water damage can even occur.
4. Trim Your Trees – On the other hand, if you have trees in your residential property, consider having them trimmed this spring season. This is because if their branches are overgrown, strong winds from spring storms can easily cause them to snap and fall on your roof, causing cracks that can allow leaks into your home.
