How To Brace Your Home For The Next Hurricane

10/16/2020 (Permalink)

June 1 began the official start to the hurricane season with two named storms Arthur and Bertha forming in the Atlantic. Hurricane Isaias developed in late July crawling up the east coast causing power outages and property damage in its wake. While the hurricane made a minimal impact on local residents, homeowners should prepare themselves for the next hurricane that may travel further inland. 

Inches of rain can fall within hours as a hurricane track’s inland. Flooding a home’s basement and weakening the sewage system essential to any family’s well-being. To protect your home’s basement it’s critical you thoroughly inspect the pipes and sewage lines to see if years of wear and tear have impacted their reliability. 

Floodwaters can also infiltrate your home’s basement through the windows. Ensuring that they’re properly sealed is a critical part of your hurricane preparation plans not only for the summer and fall season but year-round. Outside of the basement creating a landscape surrounding your home that diverts water away rather than towards may also help to limit the amount of floodwater.
