How Can I Protect My Home From Storm Damage in Beckley?

5/31/2022 (Permalink)

Raindrops fall on a window, obscuring the view of the storm.  We restore storm damage in Raleigh County 24-hours a day.

Our local team in Beckley has been restoring property damage in Raleigh County for over twenty-three years! Strong winds can cause structural damage to homes and commercial buildings. Here are some tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for protecting your home from damaging winds:

Secure Fencing, Porches, Canopies, and Sheds

Have them inspected and make sure they are firmly attached and in sound structural condition. Secure any parts of fencing that appear weak or loose.

Fortify Your Roof

Re-adhere any loose shingles and consider impact-resistant shingles when installing a roof. Install roof strappings to anchor the roof framing to the wall framings so the wind can’t lift your roof off your house.

Trim or Remove Dead, Damaged, or Rotting Trees and Limbs

Make sure any damaged trees on the property are trimmed or removed regularly. Your home should be at least a full-grown tree’s height away from the base of any tree, usually about 40 feet away.

Secure Objects Outside the Home

Loose shingles, your dog’s house, trash cans, and sports equipment can be picked up by the wind and cause damage to your home—secure outdoor objects like furniture, gutters, and downspouts.
