S’more Safety, Less Worry: Home Fire Prevention Tips from Stonebridge Roofing

Stonebridge Fire Safety Tips

November brings a chill in the air and the anticipation of holiday festivities. But with these seasonal changes, we  want to remind you that it’s also an important time for fire safety awareness. It  all starts with understanding and preventing fire hazards. At Stonebridge Roofing, Energy & Exteriors we’re not just a roofing company. We care about our community and ensuring the overall safety of the homes and families in our area. Here are essential fire safety tips for this November:

Statistics show that as temperatures drop, the number of residential fires increases. The Red Cross responds to 27% more house fires November – March than during warmer months. Heating equipment mishaps, unattended candles, and overloaded electrical circuits are common culprits as we seek to warm our homes and create a cozy holiday feel.

Inspect and Maintain Heating Systems:

Before the cold sets in, have those system inspected by a professional. Dust and debris can build up on elements over the Florida summers. Ensure that chimneys and vents are clean and unobstructed, and filters are replaced or cleaned as necessary.

Mind Your Holiday Decor:

Holiday decorations are fun and festive, but they also pose fire risks. Keep flammable materials away from heat sources, use flame-resistant decorations, and never leave candles unattended.

Test Your Smoke Alarms:

Smoke alarms save lives, but only if they’re working properly. Test your alarms monthly, replace batteries at least once a year, and replace Roofing Company - Fire Prevention Tips the units every ten years.

Have a Fire Escape Plan:

Every member of your household should know what to do in the event of a fire. The American Red Cross has a home fire escape plan you can use with your family. Practice your escape plan, ensuring there are two exits from every room and that everyone knows the designated meeting spot outside.

Be Kitchen Smart:

Cooking is the leading cause of home fires. Never leave your cooking unattended, keep combustible items away from the stove, and have a fire extinguisher within reach.

Safeguard Electrical Systems:

Inspect cords for damage, don’t overload outlets, and ensure that wiring is up to code. If you’re decking the halls, use only lights and extension cords designed for outdoor use when decorating outside.

Hurricane Proof Your Roof

Hurricane Proof Your Roof

Preparing your roof for hurricane season is a multi-step process designed to ensure your roof as sturdy and secure as possible. With regular maintenance and attention to detail, you’ll be sure that your home and family will be protected. Here’s some things you’ll want to do:

1. **Get A Roof Inspection:** It’s always a good hire a local professional to inspect your roof for any potential damage or weak areas. If you’re comfortable doing it yourself, look for missing or loose shingles, rusted flashing, worn seals, and any other signs of damage. Don’t forget to check the underside of the roof from your attic for signs of leaks or water damage.

2. **Repairs:** Any signs of damage or wear should be repaired promptly. Loose or missing shingles should be replaced, as these can be easily torn off by high winds, creating a weak spot in your roof. If the flashing is rusted or damaged, it should also be replaced to prevent leaks.

3. **Trim Trees:** Trim back any tree branches that overhang your roof. In a hurricane, these branches can be torn off and thrown onto your roof, potentially causing severe damage.

4. **Gutter Maintenance:** Clean your gutters and make sure they’re securely attached. Blocked or loose gutters can overflow, causing water damage to your home, and can be torn off in high winds.

6. **Professional Check-up:** If you’re in a high-risk area, consider having a professional wind mitigation inspector check your home. They can identify potential weaknesses and recommend fixes to help your home withstand a hurricane.

7. **Insurance Check-up:** Make sure your home insurance policy covers hurricane damage, and understand the terms. Some policies have a separate hurricane deductible, and others may not cover flood damage.

8. **Prepare for Emergency Repairs:** Keep materials such as tarps, plywood, and nails on hand for emergency post-storm repairs.

Remember, the best time to prepare your roof for hurricane season is well in advance of any storms. A well-maintained and sturdy roof can greatly reduce the potential damage to your home during a hurricane.
