Dallas Storm Damage Tips
Maintain your roof
Roof damage is the most frequent structural loss caused by hail and windstorms. As a homeowner, it’s a good idea to regularly inspect your roof. If there is any previous damage or weak spots, you’ll want to have these addressed before a storm hits and potentially causes greater damage.
Selecting the right materials for your roof is also important. If your roofing materials are not meant to withstand strong winds or hail, you may end up with significant damages.
3. Maintain your trees and shrubs
Trees and shrubbery should be properly pruned—especially the branches directly over your roof or near windows. Strong winds and hail can easily take down weak branches and cause potential structural damages to homes, vehicles, and other property.
4. Secure outdoor property
Secure your outdoor property, like grills, patio furniture, trash cans, and play structures. Leaving these objects unsecured outside during a storm can be dangerous as high winds could blow them over, towards your property, or they could be damaged by hail. If possible, bring these items indoors or tie them down so they are less likely to blow around.
