Mother Nature…Round Two!!
With Hurricane Irene scheduled to make her appearance in our area late Saturday, we should make plans to protect our properties from the expected rains, and especially the high winds.
Make sure that all lawn furniture, exterior loose items, etc. are brought inside or properly stowed. Also make sure drains, gutters, downspouts, etc. are clear and open to collect and discharge water.
If you have contractors working at your property, make sure they secure their materials, tools, scaffolds, staging, etc. so that the wind doesn’t make these items cause any damage to the building. It is better to be safe and take things down or off the building, rather than to risk serious building damage and possible harm to residents.
