Tips to prepare your home for a storm

Storm season can be a scary time of year for many people here in the Seguin, TX area. Preparation is key to helping make sure that your family and home stay safe during this time of year. Here are some tips from us at Allen Jones Insurance Agency to help you prepare your home for an upcoming storm. 

Tips to prepare your home for a storm

1. Secure loose items outside

Make sure to secure any outdoor furniture, decorations, or debris that could be moved around by strong winds. 

2. Trim trees and shrubs

Be sure to prune any trees or shrubs that may be near your home, as these can become hazardous if they fall onto your house during a storm. 

3. Prepare windows and doors

Caulking around windows and doors can help prevent them from leaking water in the event of heavy rain or flooding. Additionally, you should tape up plywood over windows with high wind projections to prevent them from breaking in high winds. 

4. Strengthen roof protections

Reinforcing your roof by adding straps or clips to secure it against wind gusts can help protect it from damage caused by high winds or flying debris. 

5. Store extra supplies

Stock up on flashlights, batteries, food, water, and first-aid supplies just in case the power goes out during a storm. This will help ensure that everyone’s safety is taken care of if the power is down for an extended period of time following a storm.
