Hurricane season began on June 1st and runs through November 30th. On August 9, 2018, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) revised its predictions for this year’s season, forecasting a below-average hurricane season with 9–13 named storms, 4–7 hurricanes, and 0–2 major hurricanes for the remainder of 2018. Regardless of this less dire prediction, it is still important to prepare for the possibility of a severe storm, keeping your roof in mind. Buildings located in coastal states are potentially more vulnerable in these storms, therefore it’s wise to be proactive and schedule an inspection to get your roof ready for any future storm(s).
The beginning of fall means winter is right around the corner which can bring harsh weather for your roof. In addition to being one of your building’s most valuable assets, your roof can also be one of the most vulnerable. Even the strongest and most durable roof can have some weaknesses. Without a proper roof inspection in the fall, your roof system may be susceptible to major damage during the winter months. Fixing any issues before the freeze/thaw cycle begins will save you a lot of hassle in the long run.
