Strong Winds Causing Property Damage in Hilo?
Aloha! Our teams in Hawaii and Maui have over twenty years of experience restoring properties damaged by strong winds and storms in Hilo. Wind damage can be minimized by securing objects outside of the house. Here are some examples of ways to minimize wind damage from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:
Secure Objects Outside the Home
Loose shingles, your dog’s house, trash cans, and sports equipment can be picked up by the wind and cause damage to your home. Secure outdoor objects like furniture, gutters, and downspouts.
Trim or Remove Dead, Damaged, or Rotting Trees and Limbs
High winds can cause trees and branches to fall. Make sure any damaged trees on the property are trimmed or removed regularly. Your home should be at least a full-grown tree’s height away from the base of any tree, usually about 40 feet away.
Fortify Your Roof
Your roof is your first line of defense in a high wind event. Re-adhere any loose shingles and consider impact-resistant shingles when installing a roof. Install roof strappings to anchor the roof framing to the wall framings so the wind can’t lift your roof off your house.
