Wind Advisory Issued for Serra Mesa?
Last month a wind advisory was issued for many parts of San Diego County. Our local team in Mission Valley responds to property damage emergencies caused by winds every year in Serra Mesa. Here are some tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for protecting your home from wind damage:
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. Gravel has been found in mailboxes during very strong wind events and has even shredded vinyl siding. Replace these materials with a softer material, such as mulch or dirt.
Trim or Remove Dead, Damaged, or Rotting Trees and Limbs
High winds can cause trees and branches to fall. Make sure any damaged trees on the property are trimmed or removed regularly. Your home should be at least a full-grown tree’s height away from the base of any tree, usually about 40 feet away.
Secure Objects Outside the Home
Loose shingles, your dog’s house, trash cans, and sports equipment can be picked up by the wind and cause damage to your home. Secure outdoor objects like furniture, gutters, and downspouts.
