Otay Mesa Home Damaged by Strong Winds?

Palm trees are blown over in the wind. We restore wind damage 24 hours a day in San Diego.

Recently a High Wind Warning was issued in San Diego County. Some properties sustained wind damage from flying tree limbs and other flying projectiles. Our local Otay Mesa/SanYsidro team offers these tips for preventing wind damage from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:

Trim or Remove Dead, Damaged, or Rotting Trees and Limbs

High winds can cause trees and branches to fall. Make sure any damaged trees on the property are trimmed or removed regularly. Your home should be at least a full-grown tree’s height away from the base of any tree, usually about 40 feet away.

Secure Objects Outside the Home

Loose shingles, your dog’s house, trash cans, and sports equipment can be picked up by the wind and cause damage to your home. Secure outdoor objects like furniture, gutters, and downspouts.

Fortify Your Roof

Your roof is your first line of defense in a high-wind event. Re-adhere any loose shingles and consider impact-resistant shingles when installing a roof. Install roof strappings to anchor the roof framing to the wall framings so the wind can’t lift your roof off your house.
