Weather is unpredictable and can sometimes be extreme. From torrential rain and high winds to heavy snowfall and ice storms, severe weather can wreak havoc on your home if you’re not prepared. But with over 50 years of experience in the industry, Berg Home Improvements is here to offer practical advice and services to help safeguard your home against these potential threats.

The Importance of Preparation

Preparing your home for extreme weather conditions isn’t just a good idea—it’s essential. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), approximately 85% of disaster-related property damage in the U.S. is caused by extreme weather events. This statistic highlights the crucial need for homeowners to take proactive steps in protecting their homes.

Dangers Posed by Weather Events

Each type of severe weather event poses unique risks. Flooding can lead to structural damage and mold growth, while wind damage can rip off roofing materials or cause trees to fall on your home. Power outages may leave you without essential services for days or even weeks. It’s essential to understand these risks and take appropriate measures to mitigate them.

How to Prepare Your Home

Designate a safe place in your home: Identify a secure area in your home where your family and pets can take shelter during a storm. This could be a basement, storm cellar, or an interior room on the lowest floor without windows.

Check your home’s exterior: Regularly inspect and maintain your home’s exterior. This includes sealing wall air conditioners, testing your sump pump, cleaning your gutters, and ensuring they divert water about 10 feet away from your home.

Secure outdoor items: Secure outdoor gear such as furniture, tools, and mowers. High winds can turn these items into dangerous projectiles.

Tree maintenance: Prune and remove trees that pose a potential risk of falling on your home.

Stay informed: Use weather notifications and weather radios to stay updated on the latest weather forecasts.
