Discovering that your roof is leaking or that your windshield wipers don’t work in a heavy downpour is no fun! Here are five ways you can prepare now for the rains to come:
Clean and repair gutters, downspouts and roofs – Clogged rain gutters can cause rainwater to back up and damage your roof.
Keep storm drains clear in your area – Pick up trash you see around your business/community.
Maintain your car – Make sure your windshield wipers are in good working condition and tire treads are at the proper depth.
Harvest the rain – Purchase a rain barrel and get it set up before the rains begin. It’s time to recognize that rainwater is a resource!
Sign up for Preventative Roof Maintenance – Having preventative maintenance keeps your roof in top shape, which means less maintenance or emergency work in the long run
It is wise to be prepared for any rain that may come our way. Getting ready now will help to keep your property safe now and in the future. Put these five tips into practice, and you’ll be ready when those raindrops start to fall.
