Our local Beckley team has been restoring property damage caused by storms in Raleigh County for many years. Oceana residents and businesses know they can rely on us to respond quickly to mitigate and restore storm damage. Protecting your home from storms involves preparing your property and taking steps to minimize the impact of harsh winter conditions. Here are some tips to help you safeguard your home:

Insulate and Weatherproof: Ensure that your home is properly insulated to keep it warm during cold weather. Insulate walls, attics, and crawl spaces to reduce heat loss. Seal any gaps or cracks in doors, windows, and walls to prevent drafts and heat escape.

Maintain Heating Systems: Service your heating system before winter to ensure it operates efficiently. Change filters and clean ducts if necessary. Consider using a backup heating source such as a generator or a wood-burning stove in case of power outages.

Prevent Frozen Pipes: Insulate pipes in unheated areas of your home, such as the basement and attic. Allow faucets to drip slightly during extremely cold weather to prevent pipes from freezing. Know how to shut off your water supply in case of a pipe burst.

Clear Gutters and Roofs: Remove leaves, debris, and snow from gutters and downspouts to prevent ice dams and water damage. Safely remove snow from your roof to prevent excessive weight and ice buildup.
