Is Your Home in Warren Prepared to Face Strong Winds this Winter?

12/6/2022 (Permalink)

Strong winds blur the view of the foliage. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Macomb County.

In Warren, winter weather can be brutal, and storms and strong winds can cause property damage. Our local team in St. Clair Shores wants everyone to be prepared for winter storms. Here are some wind-proofing tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for steps you can take to ensure your home is protected from damaging winds.

Secure Fencing, Porches, Canopies, and Sheds

Have them inspected and make sure they are firmly attached and in sound structural condition. Secure any parts of fencing that appear weak or loose.

Replace Gravel and Rock Landscaping Materials

Rock and gravel materials can cause serious damage during a severe wind event. During extreme wind events, gravel has been found in mailboxes and has even shredded vinyl siding. Replace these materials with a softer material, such as mulch or dirt.

Anchor Fuel Tanks and External Utility Links

If you have an exterior fuel tank or any of your utilities are located outside, anchor or tie them down according to the ground anchor instructions. This will help reduce the risk of them overturning and sliding.
