4 Tips For Protecting Your Home From Wind Damage

High winds are the norm here in Minnesota and they can put your home at risk of wind damage and deterioration. If you’ve ever experienced wind and storm damage in the past, you know that it can be a hefty mess to clean up.  However, there are plenty of ways you can prevent wind from impacting your home.

Understand Your Location’s Weather

If you’re new to Minnesota, take some time to research and understand typical weather conditions for the area. Ask neighbors how they manage snowfall, high winds, and severe thunderstorms. Knowing what to expect from your surroundings will help you better prepare your house for impact.

Inspect and Maintain Your Roof

In many cases, your roof will be one of your first lines of defense during severe weather storms and high winds. If you can’t remember the last time your roof was professionally inspected by a certified roofing contractor, schedule an inspection as soon as possible. A professional roofing contractor will indicate any compromised areas and supply a speedy repair so that your roof is ready to take on future wind gusts.

Maintain Trees and Branches

High winds can send large branches and debris down on your property. Your roof, siding, and windows are only a few components that are at risk in case of a severe weather storm. If you want to prevent these pieces from puncturing and damaging your home, take some time to trim overgrown branches that hang above your roof.

Secure and Clean Your Gutters

It doesn’t take much for high winds to strip loose gutters from your home and further damage your soffits and fascia. Even if the high winds don’t take your gutters off, a clogged system won’t be able to sufficiently guide heavy rainfall away from your home. Take some time to inspect and clean your gutters so that they’re sturdy during a severe weather storm.
