By ICP Group. 

It is official, hurricane season is here! Have you prepared your homeowner’s roof? 

Hurricane season is amping up, with promises to be more unpredictable and intense than ever before. As a contractor, you know that hurricanes can cause major wind and water damage to the roof and you know where to look when you are checking for the effects of the hurricane. You know the importance of having a plan in protecting the roof. Read on to learn the top five ways to best prepare a roof for hurricane season. 

1 - Roof evaluation: get to know the condition of the roof with a thorough inspection. 

2 - Trim trees: identify tree limbs, dead trees,and over-hanging branches to minimize risk. 

3 - Routine maintenance: keeping a regular maintenance program is the best way to ensure a roof can stand up to the elements of a storm. 

4 - Clean gutters and drains: maintaining a clear pathway for water to travel down to the ground and not sit on the roof to cause potential water damage is essential. 

5 - Make proper repairs: minor cracks and leaks can lead to serious problems during a hurricane. 

Don’t let storm season sneak up on you. Putting a roof preparation plan in place ahead of time is the best way to ensure a roof can stand up to the elements of a tropical storm. Have you prepared your homeowners?
