Weather the Storm | 3 Tips to Storm Proof Your Home

Article Posted by Expert Author: Emma Prior  on 04/08/2013

No matter what part of the country you live in, bad weather will rear its head sooner or later. Let's take a look at 3 tips to help you protect your home from storm damage.

1. Take care of your windows. Windows are one of the most likely parts of your home to be damaged. Installing storm shutters is the best way to protect them. These can be easily closed when storms are on their way and will then prevent hail or debris from damaging your windows.

 

2. Take care of your doors. Most doors don't have the strength to withstand storm-force winds. An additional bolt can be bought inexpensively and can protect doors from high force winds.

 

3. Make it possible for others to help. One of the most frustrating situations is knowing that a storm's coming but being too far away to do anything about it. Systems from companies like ADT Home Security offer you the ability to remotely monitor your home security. For example, if you're out of town and you need to give a neighbor access to your home to storm-proof it, then you can unlock the doors remotely and give them access.

 

Having a plan to storm-proof your home will help protect your home from damage and will give you peace of mind.

 

Home security systems today are so much more than keeping out the bad guys.  Let them work overtime for you by protecting your family from fire and carbon monoxide, as well as enable you to remotely control the temperature of the home, or turn off and on the lights.
