What Can I Do to Prevent Damage from Santa Ana Winds in San Diego?

5/31/2022 (Permalink)

Strong winds blow around a high-rise building. We respond to wind and storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in San Diego County.

Our San Diego City, South West team is trained and certified to restore wind and storm-damaged properties in San Diego day and night. Here are some tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for preparing for wind damage:

Secure Patio Furniture, Canopies, Fencing, Porches, and Sheds

Have them inspected and make sure they are firmly attached and in sound structural condition. Secure any parts of fencing that appear weak or loose.

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.

Seal Cracks and Gaps

Prevent wind or water from coming in. Make sure caulking around windows and doors is in good shape and not cracked, broken, or missing. Fill any holes or gaps around pipes or wires that enter your building with a waterproof sealant.

Anchor Any Fuel Tanks and External Utility Links

If you have an exterior fuel tank or any utilities located outside, anchor or tie them down according to the ground anchor instructions. This will help reduce the risk of them overturning and sliding.
