In the Wake of Extreme Weather

Posted by

The weather is getting worse. We all know it. Hurricane season is getting longer and more violent, tornadoes are cropping up more frequently, and winters are getting more extreme. There’s a lot of advice about how to be prepared for the bad weather when it comes, and how to make an insurance claim, but what do you do after the disaster has come and gone?

Roof Repair

One of the first things to check for is repairs, especially for your roof and basement. Roofs and basements are hardest hit by storms of all kind. Water infiltration is something especially to keep an eye on, as well as loose tiles and other damage. make sure that you know the best roofing specialist in your area for when disaster has struck and you need to get on repairs quickly.

Tree Services

If you have any trees on your property, they’re going to be particularly hard hit by bad weather, both wind and rain, but also snow and ice. Have a tree service Cincinnati or your area come check out your property after the storm to clear away branches and tell you which trees are likely suspects to cause damage to your house in coming storms. 

A Place to Stay

Worse comes to worst, you may need a place to stay, either short term or long term while repairs are ongoing. The last thing you want to have to deal with, in the wake of an extreme weather event, is being homeless on top of everything else. It never hurts to have a backup plan in advance. Perhaps you are lucky enough to have friends or family that you can stay with temporarily, but if that falls through, it doesn’t hurt to have further contingencies. What exactly those contingencies should be will depend heavily on what kind of disasters are most likely to strike in your area particularly.
