Things to do around the house before a storm hits
We’ve had a couple of weeks with severe storms in Henry County. Although it is hard to prepare for a storm, there are a few things you can do to minimize the damage to your home when severe weather strikes.
- Clean the gutters at least twice a year. If you can’t do it yourself, hire a professional to help you
- Check the front and back yard for dead or rotting trees. If you spot big dangling limbs, be sure to trim them. Even medium size tree limbs can damage your roof and cause interior damage to your home
- If your roof is more than five or ten years old, be sure to inspect it for loose shingles and sheathing
- Secure your outdoor furniture, umbrellas, grills, tables to prevent those objects from damaging your deck or windows
