Get ready for hurricane season with these helpful tips.

With hurricane season rapidly approaching, now is the time to start prepping your home for Florida’s unexpected weather conditions. Heavy rain and strong wind gust can do severe damage to your home.

Here at Batterbee Roofing, we want to make sure that your roof is ready to withstand some of Mother Natures harshest conditions. Refer to the following tips as you prepare your home for hurricane season to make sure your roof is protecting your house and those that live underneath it. For tips one through three, be sure to take a look at Hurricane Preparedness Part 1.


Step 4: Check Your Attic

Your attic will show the first signs of any damage to your roof. Look for water stains on support beams, insulation and the floor. Also, check if any items stored in your attic are wet or damp. In most cases, this indicates that your roof is leaking. A hurricane will easily push water and wind through these crevices, doing more damage to your home and potentially ripping off parts of your roof.

Step 5: Inspect All Entryways

Vents in the attic, your garage door, windows, doors—anywhere that wind or water could come through should be inspected for proper installation and effective functionality. Strong wind gusts could push in your garage door, or even rip through closed doors and windows. When these forces get inside your home, they move upward to the attic and can damage your roof from the inside.

Step 6: After A Hurricane

Inspect the inside and outside of your home for damage. Check for missing shingles, holes in the roof, water in your attic and other places the hurricane could have potentially damaged. If there is any damage to your roof, contact your local roofing company immediately to schedule a roof inspection and repair before the next rain storm or hurricane.
