On June 1, the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season will begin. Floridians should be alert for any tropical storms or severe hurricanes from the beginning of summer to November 30th. This is the official end of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. Florida homeowners need to create a plan to protect their properties before the spring arrives and June 1st rolls around. This is the perfect time to make any necessary repairs to your home, including roofing repairs that could compromise your property’s safety. Is your Florida property, or even your roofing system, protected?

Assess your current roof system

You must first evaluate the current roof system to be prepared for hurricane season. These are the questions you need to ask: What age is my residential roof? What was the last time that I coordinated a roof inspection? Is my roof in need of repairs or a new roofing system? A professional roofer will diagnose your roof quickly and accurately so that improvements can be made in a timely manner.

Your roof might need some repairs after years of wear and tear. Repairs can be made to replace missing or damaged roof shingles, repair a roof leak or restore faulty gutters or downspouts. These damages can become more severe during a storm, which could compromise your roofing system’s integrity.

Ask your roofers if they are able to include wind mitigation services into your roofing design if you’re thinking of installing a new roof. Your roofers can install wind mitigation features to strengthen your roof in the event of a storm. Your roof will not be damaged by major storms.

Create your plan for repairs and replacement

To complete roof replacements or extreme repairs, you should work with a licensed roofing contractor. They can help you plan a schedule for your home improvement project.

Get ready for the aftermath

Photograph your roof before and afterwards any incidents occur. It is possible that insurance will cover you for weather-related and accidental damages if you maintain your roof properly. All of this information will simplify the process of filing a claim.
