After a natural disaster such as a tornado, flood, or fire strikes your home, it’s crucial to protect the building after the damage is done. When any disaster happens on your property, a crucial step is to ensure no further damage occurs. Continue reading to learn a few tips on how to protect your home after a disaster.
Secure Windows and Doors
When an area of your home is exposed, it is at risk of vandalization, animal infestation, and further damage from the elements or follow-up storms. If your windows are broken or the doorways are exposed, it’s essential to secure these areas to keep any animals or criminals out. One way to do so is to cut and fasten plywood over any vulnerable areas to protect your interior and keep the elements from causing any more damage to your home.
After a disaster, you may need to secure your property by installing a fence around the lot. If the damage is severe and will take a long time to fix, you want to ensure your home will be secure while you are away. Use a temporary fence around your property line to keep unwanted visitors away.
If your roof is damaged, an emergency tarp or other temporary roofing is an effective form of protection to keep your home and the interior safe. While some people have the professional training and skills to set up the tarp themselves, many people are not experienced roofers or construction workers. Roofs are dangerous even in ideal situations, but working on a roof that has been damaged is extremely hazardous. Therefore, it is best to call in a professional, such as Smith and Son’s for our post-disaster board-up services. Our services include tarping the roof to prevent further damages, as well as fastening plywood over windows and doors, and assessing the damage to your property to ensure your home is protected.
