Some people swear by storm windows, but they don’t do any good for you and your home if they’re not ready to go when the storm season hits. Hurricane season begins in June for the east coast, Atlantic Ocean Islands, and the Gulf of Mexico areas. May is the beginning point for the Pacific Islands and West Coast.
Research the best options for closing and securing your windows to protect your house. Discuss the plans with someone you can depend on to help you prepare for the landfall of the storm. When the winds and rain pick up, you won’t be able to safely board your own windows without a helping hand.
Make sure your home and your belongings are insured against water and weather damage. Look at the fine print, because no plan is going to protect your house 100%. There will be damage in a large storm, and you’ll need to be prepared to handle the aftermath.
