Hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, severe thunderstorms — homeowners in South Carolina need to be ready for it all. Stay prepared by making sure that your home’s weatherproofing is in good condition. Here are four areas around your home to inspect for storm damage so that you, your loved ones, and your property will be protected the next time bad weather comes around this summer.
A well-maintained roof is your first defense against the elements. After a storm, check for damaged shingles, dented metal, debris, scrapes from tree branches, or missing pieces.
After severe weather, inspect any siding on your home to make sure it hasn’t come loose or blown off completely. Damaged siding can let water into your home’s frame and insulation — leading to wood rot, mold, and pests.
Don’t forget to check your gutters! During a storm, they can be blown off, clogged with debris, or knocked out of alignment. When this happens, water is free to run down the exterior walls of your house, into the foundation, and can cause long term property damage.
Be sure to quickly repair any windows that have been damaged in a storm. Glass that’s been cracked by hail or flying debris can easily break the rest of the way. Rain can also seep through fractures and cause the window sash or frame to warp over time.

Just want to thank you and your crew for the excellent job you did on my "sad" roof. It looks great & best of all, no leaks around the chimney. Bill was impressed with the post roof clean-up.
