Prepare your roof to be ready for fire and storm season

With all the warnings we have already been hearing of regarding Queensland’s heatwaves this summer, ensure you are prepared for the storm and fire season which is now upon our doorstep. It is essential to be prepared now as temperatures have already started to rise and the risks of storms and fires have increased dramatically. There are a few simple steps to take now, especially with Christmas fast approaching to be ready this summer.

Inspect your roof for any signs of wear, look for any loose tiles or sheeting, rusty screws or indications that your roof may be at risk of leaking. The summer storms really put our roof to the test, and if there are any areas of concern, you can guarantee that the Qld summer storms are going to reveal any problems and put you at risk of having water damage into your home from these problems with your roof. Preventing such issues by inspecting the roof and having problems repaired urgently will save a great deal of hassle and potentially extra expenses.

Additionally now is the time to carry out maintenance of gutters as leaves and debris may have accumulated since last summer. Clear the gutters out and inspect their condition. Leaves and other dry material that builds up in the gutters are a dangerous fire hazard. As such any trees or overhanging branches should also be trimmed to reduce the risk that the fire and storm season brings.
