How To Prepare Your Home For Hurricane Season

Protecting your home is our top priority here at Monarch Roofing, Hilton Head.

Here’s a list of some important things to keep in mind as we continue to approach the hurricane season that’s coming up in just a few months.

Trees cover homes all over Hilton Head Island, and the greater Beaufort area. It’s a beautiful part of nature here – but can be extremely troubling. If you have a tree over your home, you want to make sure you’re able to maintain the trees.

Dangling branches can lead to termites onto the roof. Having termites is no good! It can lead to horrible issues under the shingles, leading to wood rot.

Falling leaves can hold damaging moisture and block the water flow on your roofing system. We’re not sure about anyone else, but we aren’t a fan of having any damaging moisture!

While you have beautiful trees over your roof, it can also cause moss growth. This is caused by shaded areas that the tree hovers over.

We go on roofs every single day. It’s very easy to see these issues we mentioned become long term. A great way to help stop or slow down these sorts of issues is to continue to trim down your trees. Especially the branches over your home.

Doing these things will help you protect your roof and add longevity to the long-lasting roofing system.

Maintaining your roof can help eliminate and catch these problems, while they’re still small, and before costs begin to add up.

Monarch Roofing offers a maintenance program that includes debris removal. We’re able to go out twice a year and create a personalized photo report of your roof so you’re also able to keep track of the condition that it’s in. While we’re up there we’d be able to caulk any exposed nails, check the conditions of your shingles, and remove any debris that has fallen on your roof from a tree.

Having a local roofing contractor that knows the elements in your region only benefits you in the long run.
