Home Inspection Specialist Offers Valuable Tips for Hurricane Season

Share Article

Securing the roof of a home is one of the most important things a homeowner can do to get ready for hurricane season, says Panama City Beach-based A Smart Move Home Inspection.

Located in Panama City Beach, FL, A Smart Move Home Inspection is a certified, insured, and fully licensed home inspection specialist. The company focuses on pre-purchase home inspections and new home inspections for homes throughout the area. Over the years, A Smart Move Home Inspection has learned what it takes to prepare a home for Florida's turbulent hurricane season, and securing the roof of a home tops the list.

A Smart Move Home Inspection believes that it is in the best interest of everyone living in Florida to take the necessary steps to protect their homes from the potentially devastating tropical storms and hurricanes that hit the state every year. The first thing the company recommends that homeowners tackle is their home's roof. The roof is the point of first contact for most homes during a storm and must be well maintained to withstand the high winds and torrential rain.

A Smart Move Home Inspection recommends for homes to have a quality, professionally installed roof made of asphalt, metal, wood, concrete, or tile. These materials are durable and, if properly installed and maintained, can withstand the year's storms. The surface material is just one part of the roof, however, and according to A Smart Move Home Inspection, it is just as important to ensure that the home's insulation and ventilation are all in good condition. The roof, insulation, and ventilation system all work together to keep the home free from damaging moisture while protecting the residents and their belongings.

A Smart Move Home Inspection recommends that everyone take steps to protect their roofs during hurricane season, but the company insists that it is even more important for those who live in a hazard area to take protective measures. These hazard areas are the locations that are expected to take the brunt of major storms.
