Prevention is always better than cure, especially when it comes to storms. Here are some tips to help you in the event of a storm hitting Ireland, no matter how big or small.

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.
