Prepare Your Property for Hurricane Season
Posted on May 28, 2014
After some wicked winter weather and a freak flood incident, it is probably safe to say that residents of the Gulf Coast are ready for sunny days spent on the areaâ€™s most beautiful beaches. That said, it may be time to start thinking ahead, and not just about your upcoming Perdido Key vacation rental or Orange Beach concert getaway.
Let us be honest, the last thing anyone wants to think about is another potentially devastating weather event. The fact of the matter is hurricane season officially begins June 1 and the best way to avoid the aftermath of a storm is to prepare for it ahead of time. So, what is the best way to prepare to your Northwest Florida and Coastal Alabama real estate from severe weather?
There are a few relatively simple and cost effective solutions to help protect your property. Consider installing hurricane shutters. This remains one of the most economical housing solutions when it comes to wet weather. If these are not an option, stock up on panels and plywood ahead of time so you are ready when a storm is projected to hit. Flood insurance is worth considering as well. Keep in mind that most policies have a time clause before they go into effect.
The better prepared your property is now, the less you will stress later. Continue to think ahead with our hurricane safety guide at PointeSouth.com.
