The storm warnings are rolling in throughout the South West so it’s time to start making small adjustments and checks to your roof to minimise the impact of big storms.

Secure Windows and Doors
If a window is broken or a door flies open during a storm, the pressure inside your house increases and this affects your ceiling and roof. It will essentially try and ‘lift’. To prevent this, make sure windows and doors are tightly secured and locked during a storm and cover your windows if you feel there is too much flying debris outside.
Prune and Remove Low Lying Branches
Branches that scrape and whip against your roof, windows and walls during a storm will not only freak you out completely, they also pose a serious safety threat. Heavier branches are prone to snapping and falling onto house roof, causing extensive damage and possibly causing you to have to evacuate your home.
Secure Your Roof Surface
Perhaps the most important pre-emptive measure in roof prep for storms is to ensure you don’t have any sheets of tin or loose tiles laying on the roof that can rip or fly off. When these materials are dislodged, water gets into the ceiling and causes damage to insulation and internal walls and your ceiling, not to mention the hazard of flying objects falling from the roof surface.
