May is a month of many strange celebrations. There's Lumpy Rug Day on the 3rd, Dance Like a Chicken Day on the 14th and Tuba Day on the 6th. Those are nothing special compared to World Naked Gardening Day on the 7th and International Tiara Day on the 24th!
While some people may be excited about No Socks Day on the 8th, at DaVinci Roofscapes we're more likely to circle the dates of May 15-21 on our calendar. That's National Hurricane Preparedness Week --- an event we take very seriously. This is a time families and businesses should take to assess their daily locations, get updated on tips to handle hurricane situations, and prepare emergency plans.
Mother Nature hits us with all her fury when a hurricane strikes. High winds, hail and severe flooding are all part of her calling card.
In a hurricane, there are four vital areas of a structure that need to securely stay in place to keep a home or business standing --- the windows, entry doors, garage door and the roof. If one of these elements is breached, then Mother Nature comes inside to cause massive damage. (See 2015 Hurricane Season: Are You Ready?)
If you're in an area prone to hurricane situations, make sure you take time now, before Hurricane Season starts on June 1st, to evaluate the condition of your roof. We offer advice for how to do this, along with the benefits of having composite roofing, at Prepare Your Home for 2013 Hurricane Season.
This month, get serious about preparing for the 2016 Hurricane Season. After you've taken the necessary precautions to safeguard your home, then go ahead and celebrate Put a Pillow on Your Fridge Day on May 29th. It's an old tradition started in the 1930s to bring good luck to a household!
