Peachtree City residents, along with everyone else who lives in the great State of Georgia, aren’t strangers to severe thunderstorms. Between the rain, wind, hail, and lightning, these storms can cause a lot of damage to your home. Keep these tips in mind to protect your home during this year’s warm season.
3 Ways To Protect Your GA Home From Thunderstorm Damage
Trim Your Trees
Keep your trees trimmed and healthy to prevent excessive damage due to lightning strikes. Branches hanging low over your roof or deadwood in your trees could both result in costly or dangerous damage to your home should one of your trees get struck by lightning during a storm.
Install Smoke Detectors
If you have any concerns that your roof or attic may catch fire if it is struck by lightning, install a smoke detector in your attic. This way, you can rest easy knowing that an attic fire won’t go undetected. If you do decide to install smoke detectors in your attic, be sure to check them regularly and replace the batteries on a yearly basis.
Repair/Replace Damaged Roofing
Your roof is one of the most important barriers between you and the often violent forces of nature, so protect yourself from thunderstorms by keeping your home’s roof in proper repair. Be sure to seek professional service when it comes to roofing repairs and replacements to ensure a strong roof that will last you years to come.
