Top 6 Ways To Protect Your Home From Wind Damage

Wind storms in Walpole, MA can be very damaging to your commercial or residential property. It is critical to prepare ahead of time. Routinely checking, fixing or updating areas around your property can make the difference between hundreds dollars and thousands of dollars in damages.  

Here are six ways to prepare your property before the next storm hits:

  1. Check your roof
    • Shingles should be nailed down properly and all secured together
    • Replace any missing shingles immediately
  2. Check warehouse and garage doors 
    • This may mean hiring a company to inspect your doors to ensure it is properly secured and functioning well
  3. Secure all outdoor items
  4. Ensure your gutters are properly secured and clean.
    • Clogged cutters can create water damage to your property. They are also more likely to break in a high wind storm if they are weakened by heavy debris.
  5. Storm proof windows 
    • Installing storm proof windows can make a big difference in protecting your property from high winds and hail from a storm
    • If you don’t have storm proof windows, consider installing steel or aluminum shutters to protect them from flying debris
  6. Maintain trees around your property
    • Trimming trees and removing dead trees can help prevent large branches falling during a wind storm

Be sure to routinely check and maintain your property before the next storm hits.  If you do find yourself in need of help after a storm, call SERVPRO of Foxborough we specialize in restoration and storm damage repair. Call us after a storm and we will make it, "Like it never even happened."
