  Tips for Preparing Your Texas Home for a Hurricane

How to Prepare Your Texas Home for a HurricaneAlthough Texas coastal communities face the greatest threat from hurricanes, inland communities can also be impacted. That is why it is so important for all Texas homeowners to remain aware of how to prepare their home for the hazards associated with hurricanes, including destructive winds, tornadoes, and storm surge flooding. You can take the following steps to help protect your family and fortify your home in case a hurricane strikes:

  • Trim or remove damaged trees and limbs to keep you and your property safe.
  • Clean your gutter system, and make sure that there are no loose rain gutters and downspouts.
  • Use hurricane straps or clips to fasten your home’s roof to the frame of the house to reduce roof damage.
  • Bring in outdoor objects that could become deadly missiles, such as patio furniture and hanging plants.
  • Make sure carports, sheds, porches, decks, and any attached structures are firmly secure.
  • Move furniture and valuables to a higher level in your home, if possible.
  • Board up doors and windows with plywood or install storm shutters.
  • Caulk around doors and windows to prevent moisture damage caused by wind-driven rain.
  • Purchase a portable generator, or install a generator for use during power outages.

We love love love our Storm Tight Windows! We started with a few and then - because of the benefits that the windows bring - we went ahead with having all of the windows for our 3200 sq. ft. house done.

Our storm Tight experience has truly been a pleasure. The team was respectful of our property and minimized the mess even though it was raining off and on during the install. We will be proud to have a Storm Tight window sign in our front yard for some time to come.

The guys were great. It felt more like I was having friends over to help with the house than company paid to do it. The windows are so nice we're tempted to never put blinds up!

Living on a hurricane prone island, we replaced all 27 of our windows with Storm Tight hurricane windows. This summer we were pleasantly surprised by our electric bill. Last year, our bills ran over $500. This year, a little over $200.
