The 2022 hurricane season continues to churn out tropical storms. Seasoned Floridians tend to have the routine down. However, many people moved to the sunshine state the past year and may be new to hurricanes. New residents and mature Floridians alike should ensure readiness. Moreover, you need a plan to address any damage to your roof and home. To that end, Di Pasqua Construction Inc. reviews the 2022 hurricane season, the aftermath, and the next steps.
The 2022 Hurricane Season
Peak hurricane season typically occurs from approximately August 20 through early October. However, Hurricane Nicole came ashore a month after hurricane season’s prime. Of course, everyone remembers Hurricane Ian and all its destruction in October. Yes, the 2022 hurricane season proved to be rough for Floridians. Still, Florida residents are resilient, and damaged homes are fixable.
Newer Residents Should Take Action
The real estate market has been booming, with many relocating to sunny Florida. As such, newer residents may not have asked important questions about their new home purchases. Such questions include whether the home has hurricane-resistant windows and the roof’s age. If you know you need a roof repair or waterproofing, we recommend you schedule those as soon as possible.
Help After the Storm
Hurricanes wreak havoc on homes and commercial buildings from both wind and flooding. Unfortunately, water intrusion can cause mold in very little time. If possible, it’s always best to prepare beforehand by repairing or replacing old or damaged roofs and updating storm windows. If you experienced flood and water damage or other issues during the 2022 hurricane season, contact a local professional as quickly as possible. As you can imagine, construction and home repair demands increase after hurricanes. Sometimes, increased demand results in unlucky homeowners eagerly hoping for a cancellation to get on the calendar.
