Residents of Cullman, AL aren’t strangers to summer storms. With thunderstorms, high winds, and even the occasional tornado, it’s essential to be prepared. Here are some tips to help you prepare your home for the summer weather.
Trim Trees and Shrubs
Trimming trees and shrubs is one of the best ways to prepare your home for summer storms. Overgrown branches can act as projectiles during high winds, damaging your home or injuring someone. Keeping your trees and shrubs trimmed can help reduce the risk of damage to your property.
Clear Gutters and Downspouts
Another way to prepare for summer storms is to clear your gutters and downspouts. Clogged drains can cause water to back up, damaging your roof or siding. Clearing them out before a storm hits can help prevent this from happening.
Secure Outdoor Objects
If you have any outdoor furniture or objects, securing them before a storm hits is essential. High winds can easily pick up and throw these items, causing damage to your home or property. By securing them, you can help prevent this from happening.
Review Your Insurance Policies
Before a storm hits, it’s a good idea to review your insurance policies. Make sure you understand what is and isn’t covered in case of damage. This way, you can be prepared financially if your home is damaged during a storm.
