Experts agree, the 2020 hurricane season is expected to have ‘above average’ storm activity. Is your roof ready?
How Can You Prepare Your Roof For Hurricane Season
Well-maintained roofs deal much better in hurricanes. Now is a great time to visually inspect your roof or hire a professional to take a look for you and assess any potential issues. Any shingles or tiles that are roof, loose, curled, or broken are potential leaks during a hurricane. The edges of the roof and around chimneys or vents are especially vulnerable.
According to Disaster Safety, “Existing leaks in your roof can worsen in severe weather.”
- Skylights: Install flashing around skylights to keep water from leaking into your home.
- Chimneys: Remove and replace the flashing, including the ice and water barrier, around your chimney to ensure no water seeps into your home.
- Flashing: Have leaky flashing removed and replaced.
- Roof valleys: Remove and replace leaking valley metal on your roof
