Florida Homeowners, is your home and roof ready for hurricane season? If you are unsure, make sure to read the whole article! The Florida Hurricane season is starting, and it looks like a promising one. The NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center predicted a “above-normal” Atlantic hurricane season. Forecasters predict a 60% chance of an above-normal season, a 30% chance of a near-normal season, and a 10% chance of a below-normal season.
We remind you it only takes one hurricane to touch land to make it an active season, and up to right now, there are already 6-10 expected storms that could become a threat and about 3-5 major hurricanes.
If you are a Florida home or business owner, this is the time to get your roof inspected and make sure that it is at a good standing, don’t wait until the damages begin to start acting.
You need to follow three tips to make sure your home/business is ready for the heavy hurricane season.
Tip #1: Get a roof inspection
The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends that your roof is inspected at least twice a year, one of them being before the start of hurricane season. This will allow you with a good window of time to make any modifications to your home if it is not equipped correctly. In this inspection, we will provide you with a report on the standing of your roof and guide you through any repairs that might be needed; like our parents say, it’s better to prevent than to lament.
Tip #2: Check your Windows and How you will Protect them
This is a big one that many take for granted until it is too late; window protection is just as important as checking your roof. A weak structure could give in during a storm, allowing all the winds to get in, the flying debris, and the rain- this could cause a lot of damage. Call an expert to get information on impact windows; our windows can withstand up to 170 MPH winds higher than most threatening level hurricanes.
Tip #3: Review your Warranties and Insurances
Last but not least, always double-check the coverage for your roof on your insurance. Your insurance coverage should be matching the risk comfort level and your priorities. We always recommend having your roof insured completely. The insurance information should always be stored in a waterproof bag along with all your personal legal documents. Imagine having your home insured and no paper to prove so?
Hurricane season in Florida is no joke for homeowners or business owners; it only takes one storm to make this season active like the last years were. Please don’t allow the season to sneak up on you; make sure to follow our tips! You can schedule your roof inspection as soon as today with ACP Home Armour.
