Santa Ana Wind Damage in Mission Valley?
Last month powerful Santa Ana wind gusts blew through San Diego County. Our local Mission Valley East team responded to wind damage calls in Mission Valley, and some damage could have been prevented by taking a few precautions. Here are some tips for protecting your property from wind damage from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:
Fortify Your Roof
Your roof is your first line of defense in a high-wind event. Re-adhere any loose shingles and consider impact-resistant shingles when installing a roof. Install roof strappings to anchor the roof framing to the wall framings so the wind can’t lift your roof off your house.
Seal Cracks and Gaps
Prevent wind or water from coming in. Make sure caulking around windows and doors is in good shape and not cracked, broken, or missing. Fill any holes or gaps around pipes or wires that enter your building with a waterproof sealant.
Anchor Any Fuel Tanks and External Utility Links
If you have an exterior fuel tank or utilities located outside, anchor or tie them down according to the ground anchor instructions. This will help reduce the risk of them overturning and sliding.
