Roof preparation when a storm is comming
Here in Eastern Idaho, storm season is a 2-3 month period every year that the residents must prepare for. Being unprepared can result in your home incurring large amount of damage. One very real issue you could have during a storm is water coming into your home through your roof and causing not only water damage but possible mold as well. If your roof has damage, missing shingles, etc. you should consider calling a professional to come asses any damage that you may have.
Here are a few things to do to prep your roof for an upcoming storm:
- Get an inspection
- Clean gutter and downspouts
- Remove debris
- Trim trees
- Check large trees for age and weakness
- Prevent ice dams
- Buy some tarps
- Secure or store loose items around your house
- Check your insurance policy
