Protect Your Home: 5 Tips to Get Your Roof Ready for Gympie Storms

Summer is quickly approaching, which means storm season is on the way!

The extreme summer weather in Gympie can leave your roof worse for wear. Strong winds during storms can lift metal sheets or blow away roof tiles, hail storms can cause dents or cracks in your roof, and heavy rain can cause water to enter your home, causing leaks, mould and structural damage.

How can I protect my home?

  1. Clean your gutters and downpipes to ensure there are no blockages so heavy rains can flow freely.

  2. Remove or trim back any overhanging tree branches that could cause damage to your house or powerlines.

  3. Keep your windows and doors closed during a storm to avoid the air pressure pushing on your roof.

  4. Have your roof inspected for any leaks, cracks, rust or damage

  5. Check if your house and contents insurance is up to date and covers you for any damage.
