Prepare Your Home For Severe Weather

Pro-Line Contractor’s Inc. in Homer Glen, a company well-versed in the nuances of Chicagoland’s unpredictable weather patterns, recognizes the importance of readiness as the seasons shift dramatically. As spring brings heavy rain and strong winds, and winter ushers in snow and ice storms, it becomes crucial to safeguard your family and property.

Taking proactive measures such as inspecting roofs, reinforcing windows, and securing outdoor furniture can significantly enhance the resilience of your home in the face of severe weather conditions.

Winter

As the temperatures drop and snow begins to fall, it’s necessary to take precautions to protect your home from winter weather.

This can range from insulating pipes and checking heating systems to clearing out gutters and ensuring proper ventilation. Pro-Line Contractor’s Inc. offers a variety of services specifically tailored for winter weather preparation, including roof replacements and even interior work if and when bad weather enters your home.

Spring

Spring may bring blooming flowers and warmer temperatures, but it also brings heavy rainstorms that can cause flooding and wind gusts strong enough to uproot trees. It’s essential to assess any potential weak spots in your home, such as loose shingles or cracks in walls, before spring storms hit.

Our team at Pro-Line Contractor’s Inc. can help with preventative measures to keep your home safe during the unpredictable spring weather.

Summer

Summer is a time for relaxation and enjoying the outdoors, but it’s also a prime season for tornadoes and heat waves.

In addition to having an emergency plan in place, it’s crucial to have your home properly prepared. This includes trimming trees near your house, securing loose outdoor items, and checking for any potential fire hazards. Pro-Line Contractor’s Inc. is here to provide stormproofing services such as installing impact windows and doors or reinforcing roofs against high winds.

Fall

As the leaves change color and temperatures begin to drop, now is the time to prepare your home for colder weather. Make sure all windows and doors are properly sealed to keep the warmth in and the cold air out.

It’s also a good idea to have your heating system inspected to ensure it is functioning efficiently.

Don’t forget about the exterior of your home as well – clear gutters and downspouts, seal any cracks or gaps in your siding and trim any dead branches or trees that could potentially fall during winter storms.

Seasonal Inspections Especially After Major Weather

It’s important to regularly inspect your home, especially after major weather events such as thunderstorms or heavy snowfalls. These inspections can help identify any damage that may have occurred and allow you to address it before it becomes a bigger issue. Pay special attention to the roof, as high winds and heavy snow can cause damage that may not be immediately visible.

Storm-Proofing Services

In addition to regular maintenance and inspections, professional stormproofing services are available for added protection against severe weather. Installing impact windows and doors is one option—these are designed to withstand strong winds and flying debris. Ask Pro-Line representatives about other stormproofing services that may be available in your area.

Emergency Plan

Another aspect of storm preparedness is having an emergency plan in place. Make sure everyone in your household knows what to do in case of severe weather, including where to go and what supplies to have on hand.

Keep a designated safe spot in your home that is easily accessible and away from windows or exterior walls. It’s also a good idea to take note of any emergency shelters in your area and have a backup plan in case you are unable to stay in your home during a storm.

Pet Safety

In addition to having a plan for your family, it’s important to consider the needs of pets as well.

Make sure you have enough food, water, and medications for them in case of an extended power outage or displacement from your home. Keep their carriers or leashes readily available so you can quickly evacuate with them if necessary.

Weather Updates And Warnings

Aside from physical preparations, it’s also crucial to stay informed about weather updates and warnings.

Pay attention to local news stations or sign up for emergency alerts on your phone to stay updated on any potential dangers. It’s better to be over-prepared than caught off guard by severe weather.
