During storm season in Woodland Hills, CA, home and business owners are most likely to be concerned with rain that might cause roof leaks and flooding. Winds can also cause damage to your buildings. Wind damage is commonly debris or large items that are blown against a structure, on a rooftop or through windows during a storm.

Here are some tips for preventing problems that are caused by high winds.

Prune Your Trees

The trees on your property should be regularly trimmed to avoid damage. These problems can arise when trees are not pruned properly:

  • Decay or disease 
  • Leaning
  • Hanging branches over a structure
  • Sharp angles in tree forks
  • Crowded or crossed branches

 Proper maintenance keeps trees healthy so that they are less likely to break and cause problems during a storm.

Limit Debris

 Outdoor property, looking at it for storm preparation.

  • Loose shingles can become missing shingles 
  • Gravel from the driveway can break windows 
  • Decorations
  • trash cans
  • signs 
  • potted plants

can be broken or hurled through windows. 

Overall, preparing for high winds that accompany storms is a matter of limiting the objects the wind can pick up and fling at your building.
