  Battling Wind and Rain: Is your Home ready for Hurricane Season?   For people residing along the Gulf coasts,  hurricane season  comes around just as predictably as every other season. It’s basically from June through November, peaking August through October. Think about Katrina, Sandy, and Harvey. Scary, isn’t it? But what exactly have you done to get your home prepared for this apocalypse? If you are still looking for an answer and living in a disaster denial, which most of us do, then you’re not alone. As for hurricanes especially, many people fail to realize that the storm surge is the most threatening bit. So, are you done living in a denial? We’v e listed a couple of critical tips on  how to prepare for Hurricane Season : 1.   Storm surge is immensely risky. If you’re living on  the coast, be aware that a big surge can rise to your roofline in a matter of seconds. Make a plan in case you need to evacuate.  2.   Plywood to the rescue- Simple 5/8 inch plywood covers offer good protection. Cover all the windows to protect them from breaking. Permanent hurricane shutters of cut-to-fit marine plywood work just about fine. 3.   Protect your garage doors with hurricane panels, or reinforce the doors from the inside with studs or braces. If wind enters a garage space it can cause massive structural damage. 4.   Consider building a safe room. 5.   No disaster preparedness article would be complete without an insurance reminder, so    Is your insurance up to date?    Are you insured for full replacement value?    Storm surge is classified as flood damage. So should you consider having flood insurance? Other property precaution tips: If you happen to live in a high-rise building, you need to stay alert of the fact that potentially damaging wind pressures increase with height. Avoid leaving anything outside, be it your furniture, tools, gardening stuff, etc. Trim trees early so that it’s manageable before the hurricane strikes. Make sure to fuel up your vehicles and emergency power generator well ahead of time to avoid the last minute rush at the petrol pump station. Most importantly, watch the news. The more you learn, the better you’ll be able to prepare and respond to the emergency. Keep an eye on the Weather channels for any kind of critical information and  weather updates  about the status of the hurricane. These huge, churning storms can spell disaster with wreaking havoc in many ways. We hope these tips help you to survive the fury of a hurricane. For more information  visit .
