Secure Your Home for Hurricane Season

The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs June 1 through November 30 and Hurricane Irene is in our path.  Here are some tips how to secure your home against strong winds and heavy rain.

Protect exterior windows and doors. Whether it’s a permanent solution like storm shutters, or a temporary solution like plywood, make sure that every window and door can be reinforced during a hurricane. Purchase supplies ahead of time.

Check and secure any loose shingles. High winds can lift loose shingles up and start a peeling domino effect on the roof.

Seal any cracks or holes in the exterior of the home. Water can seep into the openings where wires, cables and pipes enter the house.

Limit any potential for flying debris. Trim dead or broken branches from trees and remove objects in the yard.
