Protecting Your Home During A Storm
Prevention is always better than cure. Here are some tips to help you protect your home as Storm Brendan makes it way to Ireland.
The Exterior of Your Home
Storms involve rapid changes in weather conditions with high winds, torrential rain and grim temperature drops. We recommend that in anticipation of this you should keep an eye on your gutters to ensure they aren’t clogged. Similarly, you should check that there are no items in your garden that could become hazardous in high winds.
Windows and Doors
The main concern is that high winds can cause structural damage to a home’s roof and doors. It's important to make sure that both your windows and doors are of a standard that can withstand high winds.
Storms often cause power outages due to high winds, floods and power lines being knocked down from falling trees and debris. Having some form of a backup generator can ensure that in a power outage whatever necessary equipment you need will work.
