The old nursery rhyme comes to mind over the last weeks; “March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers.” When I was younger and growing up in Dallas I always thought the person who made up that rhyme must not have been from Texas. We tend to be a bit ahead of the curve since we have many flowers that have already made their appearance. But we have had no shortage of March winds, so that part of the rhyme holds true for us this year. As I travel around the metroplex I see many missing shingles, tree limbs down, and other signs of wind damage. If you haven’t checked your property since last weeks high winds, now is a good time just to walk around your house and check out your roof and look for missing or loose shingles, missing or damaged vents and signs of impact damage from large limbs. I personally have several large trees and awoke to find limbs everywhere on my roof and lawn and while cleaning up the mess I was fortunate to escape damage free. My son however lost a dozen or more shingles and will need repairs quickly to prevent more damage from the next rain. Here is hoping you fair well with our changing weather!
