Home – Safety
Do you go to great lengths to avoid a particular object or situation because of an extreme fear? You’re not alone: 13% of the population experiences a phobia of some sort.
One phobia in particular affects an estimated 17 to 21 million people in the U.S. alone – Friday the 13th. But the most feared date on the calendar is only one out of hundreds of phobias.
Strong winds from hurricanes and tornadoes can seriously damage the structural integrity of your home. Roofing, garages, doors and windows are all susceptible. Homeowners can expect to pay several thousands of dollars to replace a standard roof. That’s a major expense, especially in these challenging economic times. Beyond your home, your car may also be vulnerable to wind damage.
There are preventative measures you can take to protect your home from wind damage before a storm or hurricane hits. Follow our home storm preparation checklist below to protect yourself and your family and avoid costly damages.
