Buying a house is the single biggest investment you’ll ever make. Protecting that investment is crucial. It’s not just a financial investment but also a sanctuary. It’s where you make some of your most precious memories, and where you keep the things that matter most to you.
There’s only so much that you can do to prevent damage from a hailstorm. But that’s exactly why it’s so important to do everything that you can. Here are some tips for preventing and minimizing the effect that hail has on your home.
Protect Your Roof
The roof isn’t the only place that hail damage can appear, but it’s certainly one of the most vulnerable. Here are a few things you can do to help prevent roof damage.
There are two things to keep an eye out for.
While they’re not as exposed as your roof, your windows are another big point of vulnerability for hail damage. It doesn’t take particularly large hail to damage your windows.
Placing protective shutters on the outside of your windows can make a big difference if you live in a hail-prone area, or if you’re expecting a big storm.
Shelter Outdoor Furniture, Accessories and Car
Never go out in a hailstorm. Nothing that you own is worth exposing yourself to falling hail. Having said that, if you know that a storm is approaching and you have a chance, take a moment to secure anything outside that you’re worried about.
Know Your Insurance Policy
There’s always a chance that you do everything you can to protect your home, but still, wind up with hail damage. That’s why it’s important to make sure that your home is adequately insured. Here are a few questions to ask, to help determine if you’re well-covered by your insurance company:
