Gusting Santa Anna winds have been in the news a lot recently, most notably for fueling the scores of wildfires in our area. Earlier this month, many in East San Diego County were without electricity because of damage to utility poles from fire and the winds.
In addition to fueling the dangerous fires, however, heavy winds are powerful in their own right to cause significant damage to your home or business.
In this issue, we’ll talk about steps you can take to protect your property from heavy wind damage.
The short answer is “plenty.” The most notable possible damage include shingles ripped from the roof, and siding and doors blown completely off. Advance preparation is key because it’s virtually impossible to know with certainty a storm’s strength, timing and potential damage.
The key is to target the weak points of your home or business. These include windows, garage doors, siding, roofing, and the trees surrounding the structure.
While San Diego is certainly a wonderful place to live – and we’re proud to call this city our home – there’s no getting around the fact that we’re exposed to some of nature’s most dangerous elements.
