You can prevent the threat of severe damage with these few preventative steps.
Pensacola, FL (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
Napier, Inc, a full service custom luxury home builder in Northwest Florida, recently offered several key tips that are designed to help clients prepare for the upcoming hurricane season. The valuable tips Napier Inc. offers include planning for pets, preparing a storage location for outside furnishings and several other property saving ideas.
"Hurricane season historically has peak activity in the months of August, September, and early October," said Philip Napier, owner of Napier Inc. "With a few preventative steps, you can prevent the threat of severe damage. For residents along the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coasts, now is the time to have a plan in place. Trying to plan while the storm is bearing down on you is ineffective."
To protect outdoor furniture, Napier Inc. recommends having a storage location for all outside furniture and other exterior fixtures, potted plants and accessories that can be quickly and easily accessed. Anything that cannot be removed and stored (swing sets, forts, etc.) should be secured with adequate tie down devices.
Home owners should also check trees for any signs of disease, dead limbs, and limbs over the roof of the house and have them trimmed now to prevent damage in high winds. The roof should also be checked for missing shingles, which can result in the removal of a larger section of roofing during hurricane force winds.
In addition, Napier Inc. suggests that home owners have a system in place to cover and protect all windows and exterior doors, check and repair all window and exterior door seals to prevent water penetration and plan ahead for family pets. Napier Inc. also encourages home owners to visit the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) website for a complete list of hurricane preparation tips at http://www.ready.gov/hurricanes.
