After a particularly harsh winter, most Connecticut residents likely understand the importance of preparing their homes for inclement weather. While spring time doesn’t traditionally present the weather hazards of the season before, storms can still occur. While the best way to financially protect your home from storm damage is with Putnam Homeowners Insurance, it’s also a good idea to know how to prepare your home for spring weather.

Since spring storms tend to hit pretty suddenly, and can bring heavy rains, it’s wise to have your roof, caulking, and shingles inspected in preparation. Check for continuity of shingles on the planes of the roof and on the ridges. The areas with roof flashing should be tight and sealed with some type of roofing sealing applied. In addition to roof caulking, you should inspect caulking around windows, doors, and any other openings into the home.

Just as you would check the insulation in your home before winter to keep the cold air out, you’ll want to do the same to keep the warm air out in the spring. For doors, you’ll want to make sure that the weather stripping is intact and providing a good seal. For windows, you’ll want to make sure the seals around them have no cracking, splitting, or peeling.

In addition to preparing your home, it’s important to prepare your family, should a severe spring storm hit. Remember that storms may also lead to flooding, power outages, and more. Have an emergency evacuation plan in place, with routes to safety from each room in your home. It’s also wise to have a first aid kit readily available including a battery-operated flashlight, weather radio, and extra batteries.
