Preparing for a Storm in San Diego When you have purchases a home in San Diego using a VA home loan, you may become very familiar with the water. Being so close to gorgeous beaches, you may become familiar with the ocean and enjoy the time that you are able to spend on the well-manicured beaches that San Diego proudly displays. Water Damage to your VA Purchased Home Although the beach can be a great way to spend a relaxing day away from your VA home loan house, you should also realize that living by the cost has some danger associated with it. There are a lot of people that struggle understanding just how detrimental a tropical storm could be to their San Diego home, and those who have purchased their homes using a VA home loan need to beware of that danger. When you live in San Diego, you should be prepared to deal with water damage in San Diego. Water damage can occur in many different settings, but being prepared for a tropical storm or a flash flood will ensure that you are going to avoid as much water damage as you can. Talking to friends and family that have lived in the area may provide you with some insight as to what you should and should not do during these times. Do not be afraid to start preparing early to ensure your water damage in San Diego does not become extensive. Preparing for the Storm Getting emergency equipment early on will ensure that you are as prepared as possible when the water comes in. You should take the time that you need to purchase enough sandbags to build a wall around your home that reaches at least three to four feet. Before you start laying sandbags, you will want to lay down a tarp or a thick plastic covering. When you use a tarp or a plastic covering, you can be sure that any water that seeps through the sand bags will be repelled from your home by the plastic covering that you have laid down. After you have your sandbags in place, you can then focus on your windows and try to fortify and cover your windows. Tropical storms that bring surges of water often bring strong winds that can break through your windows as well. Boarding up your windows is a great way to keep yourself safe and keep your home safe. When evacuations have been ordered, you should make sure that you are out of your home but that you leave your home as protected as you can while still getting out quickly. Having a plan and having all of the proper equipment in your home will ensure that you are able to get your protective layers in place as quickly as you can. If you feel that you need a consultation from a specialist, you can consult with a professional as the materials you need. Discussing your options and finding the materials that work best for your home is a great way to ensure that you are going to be prepared, should a storm come. Take the time that you need to develop a plan that is unique to your home and will ensure that you are able to avoid water damage to the best of your ability. Photo Credit: TheUsher, boogy_man
