How to Protect Your Home from Heavy Rain

Are you looking for the ins-and-outs of protecting your home against summer monsoons? In this article, the experts at Tropicana Homes are sharing the best tips and tricks on handling heavy rain season. So, you can relax knowing you’re ready for whatever the season throws at you.

Inspect the Trees on Your Property

Do you have any big beautiful trees on your property? Well, you may want to trim them! Heavy branches can easily snap and cause damage to your home or family, and strong wind can even cause them to collapse. It’s best to take a tour of your property and take note of any trees in need of trimming. By thinning them, you can reduce their risk of blowing too much in the wind. Be sure to pay special attention to the trees closest to your house or driveway.

Check on Your Roof

July and August are most known for their heavy rain and heat. And the average rainfall in El Paso is 1.55 inches in July and 2.01 inches in August. So, it’s best to take precaution to make sure your roof is ready for a little extra rain. If you find any holes or cracks, call up a professional to help with your repairs or if you want to make it a DIY project then you can buy roof sealer at any home improvement retail company for a reasonable price.

Waterproof Your Entryways

Whether you have an old home or a brand new one, you should always be taking steps to keep your property as weatherproof as possible. It’s best to weatherproof your entryways every year, as the protections will wear down with every rain season. So, make sure to replace your weather strips regularly, and seal your floors if possible to prevent indoor flooding from excess water.
