It seems to come like clockwork every spring. One day it’s nice and sunny outside and the next thing you know it feels like you’re sitting in the middle of a hurricane wondering what kind of havoc the storm is wreaking outside. Well, the fine folks down at Bedrock Contracting have compiled a little list to help you make it through the spring storms a little more unscathed. Check out our 5 tips to prepare for April Showers:
- Button down the hatches- There is a little saying around here if you don’t like the weather just wait five minutes. An intense thunderstorm can roll through at any moment. Which is why it’s so important to secure any type of patio furniture or outdoor items that could take off with the high winds.
- Trim the trees- Making sure the trees are trimmed is crucial to protecting your home and your property. Fallen trees or tree limbs are the number one preventable causes of property damage here in the United States. Don’t risk the safety of your home or your valuables.
- Clean those gutters- The gutters on your home are designed to direct the water off your roof into a safe place. When that crazy weather hits it’s important to have a place for the water to go. The overflow of gutters can cause everything from your siding to rot, to shifts in your foundation. Avoid costly repairs when summer comes around, and take care of it right the first time.
- Check your roof- No one wants to wake up in the middle of the night to what sounds like Niagara Falls running through their house. This is why it’s crucial to get your roof inspected at least once a year before the severe weather hits. After all, it’s easier to fix a small problem than a problem that’ll cost thousands of dollars worth of water damage later on.
Preparation is the key to any big storm, but sometimes the damage can’t be avoided. If you find yourself having to deal with hail or wind damage this spring, there’s no need to worry. Give the experienced roofing specialist at Bedrock Contracting a call today at (817)-219-6000.
