How To Prepare For Hail Storms In Advance

Planning ahead can mean the difference between extensive damage and minor remediable problems. A proper preventive strategy will help you considerably reduce the negative effects of inevitable summer storms. Here are the right steps to take in order to prevent hail damage.

Prepare Your Home and Outdoor Area for a Hailstorm

The condition of your property is one of the most consequential factors in determining the amount of damage a hail storm will inflict on your personal belongings. The integrity of your roof should be your primary concern for it will keep you safe during a storm.

  • Inspect and maintain your roof. Inspect your roof regularly and take immediate measures if you notice a problem. Replace broken or damaged shingles without delay and consider installing ones rated as class 3 or 4 which have been proven to withstand harsh hail. Do not neglect seemingly minor defects that may make your roof susceptible to hail damage. Make sure the overall condition of your chimney is good and that it can be properly closed if necessary, and take effective measures to better protect your roof. If you consider an imminent renovation project, you are advised to opt for impact resisting roofing to further reduce eventual hail damage and secure your home.
  • Keep your trees and shrubbery well-trimmed. It is very important to eliminate the risk of trees or branches falling on your home during a storm. Maintain all the trees and shrubbery in your yard but pay special attention to branches that are directly over your roof or too close to your windows – in the event of a storm they are most likely to damage your home. Strong wind and hail stones can easily break any weak or dry branches, so be prudent enough to remove them in time.
  • Properly maintain your outdoor area and avoid potentially dangerous materials. It is not only falling trees and branches that may cause severe damage to your home – all kinds of debris such as decorative or waste materials blown by the fierce winds during a hailstorm pose a great risk. So keep your outdoor area clean and safe (make it a rule to keep woodpiles under a shed away from the house, etc.). What’s more, you are advised to replace rock or gravel landscaping material with shredded bark or other safe pieces that will cause no harm even when blown by strong winds.
  • Keep gutters and drainpipes clear of leaves and debris. Make sure water can drain quickly or your home may sustain water damage in addition to the typical hail damage.
