With this in mind, now is the time to prepare your home in order to cope with the storm season and avoid being caught out, because cracked roof tiles, and poor garden and ground drainage can cause costly and unsightly damage to property.
Repairs such as these are frequently ones that many homeowners put off for next year. But as the year ticks by many of us still haven’t made those repairs.
Areas in need of consideration include:
- Ground drainage
- Retaining walls
- Garden beds
- Cracked roofing with attention to tiles and pointing
- Clear guttering
- Downpipes connected to storm water
- Areas of ponding or water pooling
