How To Prepare Your Roof For Storms

Summer is coming, and with that comes heavy rain in the form of summer storms. April- June is typically when the most amount of rainfall happens, with weather getting so crazy it can lead to tornadoes and even hailstorms. Having your roof well-maintained will help it to last for years in all kinds of seasons and storms. Make sure your roof is prepared for the incoming impact with these roof protection tips.

Know What Your Insurance Covers

Our Roofers Can Make Sure Your Roof Is Prepared For Storms

If something serious does happen, make sure you can get a deductible by knowing what is and isn’t covered by your insurance. Mast Roofing and Construction, Inc. offers roof damage insurance claims and can help you with the process.

Inspect Your Roof

Check to see that your shingles are nailed down. If a severe storm rolls in, it could blow several shingles off, leaving your roof bare and vulnerable to rain and leaks. Apply roof cement or construction adhesive to the edges of shingles and the fascia to help hold them down.

Trim Your Trees

Common roof damage from storms is fallen trees from heavy winds. Mast Roofing and Construction, Inc. offers emergency roof repairs if this happens.

Secure Doors and Windows

If flying debris punctures these, pressure will increase inside your home, putting a lot more strain on your roof. Think of your roof like a parachute with all the pressurized air rushing to the top.

Secure Loose Items Outside

You don’t want to end up with your car on the roof or a lawn chair through the chimney. Tie down or put away any items you can.
