Protecting Your Home - Storm Damages
Most people dream of having a beach home, and you have to admit - it’s pretty awesome. The view of the waves and the dunes from the Golden Isles and the Brunswick area are always amazing and a welcome sight at the end of the day, and the fact that you can walk down to the water in seconds is always something that warms your heart.
But there are those times of the year when a beach house in the Brunswick area is a worry. Summers are idyllic, and even Spring isn’t bad, but Fall? And the hurricanes? That’s another story entirely.
To be prepared, you will need to inspect your property regularly and look for trouble spots before those stormy times come.
Over time, every house experiences damage from weather, and you want to make sure there are no loose ends to wrap up. Loose siding or shutters? How about that roof? Do your windows close properly, and do all exterior doors fit as they should? Can those shutters close the way they should to protect your windows during a storm? Strong winds can make short work of those parts of your home that are not in as good repair as they should be.
The landscaping at a beach home in the Brunswick area is usually tropical in nature, which means palm trees. And they can get pretty big! Have your trees and other vegetation been trimmed appropriately and removed if they are not doing well? During a storm, a lot of damage can be done by flying branches and palm fronds, or at the very least, they can leave you a really big mess to clean up!
Salt air is rough on beach-side houses and buildings, so keeping an eye on your property for damages is a good idea. Rotting wood on your home can become a hazard during storms if not cared for. Flying debris can break windows and severely damage cars left on the street.
