When preparing your home for hurricane season, the main goal is to keep wind and water out. IBHS has five important recommendations.
Aging and weather can lead to gaps around the penetrations entering your home and around windows and doors allowing water in, which can result in costly damage. Over time, gaps can form around pipes for water faucets, gas, and air conditioning, as well as where television cables enter the walls, behind electrical outlets, junction boxes, circuit breaker boxes, electric and water meters, and under window sills. Applying the appropriate caulking to these areas will keep water out.
