Here in Florida, we get some wild weather, whether it’s just a typical afternoon thunderstorm or a blustering hurricane. Our homes usually fare these storms fairly well, but if there is one thing that takes the brunt of the force, it is the roof. If you want to protect your roof, make it last longer, and hopefully avoid a homeowners insurance claim the next time a big storm rolls in, use some of these tips.
4 Steps To Protect Your Roof
- Regularly inspect your roof and replace any shingles that are missing, worn, or curling. If you have a metal roof, check for rust or other signs of deterioration.
- Clean out gutters. Debris in the gutters can cause water to back up onto the roof and weaken the structure.
- Trim trees so branches aren’t hanging over the roof. If limbs fall during a storm, your roof will more likely survive without damage. It will also discourage squirrels and other creatures from climbing onto the roof.
- Don’t ignore warning signs, such as leaks. Get any issues fixed immediately so your roof is ready for the next storm.
The roof of your home is the first line of defense during a storm. It doesn’t take much to keep it in good shape. Following these simple steps can save you not only from damage, but the inconvenience of filing a homeowners insurance claim.
