How to Protect Your Commercial Property from Hail

2/25/2022 (Permalink)

In case being a commercial property owner didn’t come with enough stress, add hail protection to your list. Given its rather erratic nature, hail can be tough to predict, which makes protecting your property even trickier. 

However, there are a few tried and true strategies worth considering, which should help mitigate the amount of storm damage your property could incur from our next Nor’Easter. 

A Top-Down Hail Defense Strategy

The following tips all concern the top of your commercial property; in other words, the roof. According to DisasterSafety.org, at the very least, a thorough roof inspection is critical in order to determine its overall condition and whether it needs to be replaced.

Once satisfied with the roof’s condition, the next order of business is to outfit it with equipment designed to withstand impact, like hailstones. This could include installing hail guards or wires around your rooftop HVAC system and investing in impact-rated skylights and solar panels. 

Whether your preparation failed or you failed to prepare, SERVPRO of Stoneham / Wakefield has the expertise and commercial solutions to save the day. Contact us for all your commercial property clean up and restoration needs.
