Advice for homeowners with this impending storm

Advice to help prevent storm damage this week with the huge storm about to hit Ireland. 

1. Check the condition of your entire roof area, including the flasia and soffett. Have a roofer repair any loose or damaged roof tiles, slates or ridge tiles. Remember minor damage now can be a lot worse later as it allows wind to penetrate during teh storm and eventially this will become worse. If your property happens to have a flat roof or a felt roof have it checked for damage also. Unfortunately most insurers in Ireland dont cover flat roofs, but it must be stated on your policy whether or not one exists at your premises

2. At lease twice a year, clear your gutters and downpipes of any debris and weeds, and check that they are securely fixed to help prevent damage during stormy conditions. 

3. Check  the lead flashings and repair if needee to prevent water penetration during stormy conditions.

4. Any trees that are in close proximity to buildings need to be checked to make sure they are sturdy and remove any overhanging branches.

5. Light  garden furniture should be put away securely and at this time of year trampolines should be taken down and stored away or securely fixed to the ground.
