If you live in South Florida, you know that June 1st through November 30th means hurricane season in the Atlantic, which means you should be preparing for a hurricane. There are many steps you must take to prepare your home and your family for such an event. Is your roof hurricane ready and can it withstand whatever Mother Nature sends your way? When preparing for a hurricane this should be something that you need to know the answer to. If you are unsure and would like peace of mind, the roofing experts at SK Quality Roofing can inspect your roof to be sure that it is ready for hurricane season before a storm comes along. So far this year we have been spared from the fury a tropical event can bring, but the rains keep coming day after day. The last thing that you want to have show up now is a leaky roof. That is why we want to help ensure that we make your roof hurricane ready.
The First Step – Inspection
Just because you have not seen any leaks or signs of water intrusion yet, does not mean you are in the clear. In order to have your roof hurricane ready, you should have an expert check it out for missing or loose shingles, clay tiles, slate tiles, or whatever other type of roofing material you have. One loose shingle or tile can set into effect a chain reaction that can spell danger for your home during the next storm. You also want to ensure that your drainage pipes are cleared of debris, leaves, and twigs that could cause water to pool up on your roof. Stagnant water can lead to damage, as well. When it comes to preparing for a hurricane, the roofing experts at SK are here to help.
