During recent storms, we’ve seen a handful of our client’s properties get damaged over the past few weeks, potentially costing thousands to fix. A few clients with flooding in their complex’s garage, more with leaky ceilings and pooling on top of roofs because their gutters weren’t clean. Here are some ways to protect your HOA or commercial property in the future!
Clean your Gutters and Downspouts
This is the most effective and easy way to prevent damage to your roof and outdoor areas by having routine cleanings of gutters and downspouts. When drains clog with leaves and debris, water overflows and spills down where it can damage walls and footings. Especially if trees surround your property, we recommend quarterly gutter cleaning.
Let an Inspector Check your Roof
Inspectors have jobs for a reason! Utilize local inspectors in Los Angeles to check your roof and potential leaks. Inspectors have trained eyes that not all of us can catch. Having routine checks with an inspector could potentially save thousands incase of damages.
Have your Property’s Trees Trimmed
It’s not rare to drive down the streets of Los Angeles and find snapped trees after a storm or a windy night. Regardless of the season, trimming trees and clearing brush can prevent fires and have your land up-rooted during storms. Check in with a gardener quarterly to see what is necessary to trim down or remove.
Start that Big Project
One of our clients waited a bit too long to construct a retainer wall that would prevent their slopped property from receiving mud and water from entering their underground garage. If your property has a project in mind that needs to be done in order to avoid damages due to weather, then make it your HOA’s priority.
