Bad weather conditions can strike at any time, sometimes with little to no warning, causing millions of dollars of damage. While there’s no way to accurately predict what type of damage a storm will bring to your home, there are ways to prepare and reduce the risk of needing costly roof repair or other storm damage repair services.
Here are a few helpful tips from our experts at Sprague Roofing and Restoration about how to bolster your home’s defense against extreme weather.
If your homeowners’ insurance covers storm damage and other act-of-God events, then that’s one less thing to worry about. Of course, you can make filing a claim for restoration services much easier by keeping everything well-documented. Before the storm season begins, document your home’s condition through photographs. This should include your roof, siding and other parts of your home that might get damaged in the event of bad weather. This will make it much easier to deal with your insurance company in the event you need to file a claim.
Montana and Wyoming may not experience hurricanes, but they can be hit with tornados. With enough force, high winds can rip trees off the ground and smash branches and other large debris against your home. You can minimize this type of damage by removing anything that could get picked up by strong gusts from around your home.
Schedule routine maintenance including gutter repair a good month or two before the storm season begins. This helps make sure your home is in good condition to face whatever the elements throw at it.
