It's never too early to prepare for the next storm
When a storm is headed to the islands all of your neighbors will be running to local grocers and hardware stores to prepare. Now is a great time to prepare before storm season while time and resources are ample.
Unsure where to start? Here are a few tips
- Hurricane clips
- Many roofs in Hawaii are not prepared for a heavy wind storm. Hurricane clips connect your roof to wall structure and are designed to withstand the upward pressure that a hurricane can put on your roof. Consider installing them on your home this summer.
- Yard maintenance
- By keeping up with yard work now, you can save yourself a hassle later. You can protect your home by getting rid of dried out and dead flora in your area.
- Secure windows and other glass
- Clearly, windows are a vulnerable part of your home. They need to be secured before a storm and this can take some time and effort. Do it early before the storm is on the way.
