Less than a month remains until the start of hurricane season, have you evaluated your home? The following changes will help to protect your home and they may go as far as saving you a few dollars here and there on your homeowners’ insurance policy.
Let’s kick things off with the roof. In addition to taking into account the age of the roof, you will also examine what kind of roof you have. A recent roof has its importance but so is the tied-down process. Roofing has developed quite a bit and it is popular nowadays to use “straps” to ensure a stable roof.
Impact resistance is an important window feature. Don’t forget about the possible advantages of shutter discounts, though. Most inspectors will test the materials that cover the window but they will also take a look to see if the construction has been completed properly.
Did you know there is a degree of importance to the way your door swings open? In a hurricane, doors can be opened by strong winds much easier if they open inward. Be sure to attach security to any glass that could be on your front door, as an added protection measure.
