WE CAN HELP YOU PREPARE!
As hurricane season is quickly approaching us, it is that time of the year again to make sure that you, and your waterfront property, are prepared. At Local Lift and Dock Supply, we hope that Volusia County is spared from major activity. We also understand that the best defense against severe storms is to be prepared.
This article will help you get everything in order before an emergency strikes, minimizing the damages to your waterfront property in Central Florida.
Making necessary repairs ahead of time can save you from higher property repair costs later, or even from being severely damaged. If your home is located near the waterline, your seawall may be the best line of defense against storm surge.
Having pictures or videos of your docks and property may help with FEMA or insurance claims if disaster does strike.
Here are a few more tips to help protect your property when the storms hit:
Before hurricane seasons starts, inspect your docks and seawalls. Look for loose decking or worn pilings. A piece of decking that is already loose could easily be gone after the storm. Loose decking and erosion around seawalls should be addressed before storms make this a bigger problem.
Store ropes, chairs, flags, and other items in an enclosed building. If it could be moved by hand, it can easily be tossed by high winds. Make a checklist now, so that securing your property will be easier later. You are responsible for any un-secure possessions that may damage someone else's property.
While it is not strictly mandatory to turn of the power and water to your dock, doing so can prevent a large water bill if a pipe breaks, and reduces the chance of electrical shorts and fire.
There are a few options for protecting your boat house you could move the boat out of the water, anchor it in deep water offshore, or secure it to a dock. Before you assume that one option is better than the others.
Storing your boat in a bay, such as those available at marinas, may not be the best choice. These locations, though roofed, tend to be built sparingly and may suffer extreme damages in heavy winds.
If your boat is on a trailer or stands, make sure that it is securely strapped down. Jack stands tend to wobble a bit in high winds and could easily become dislodged.
· Anchorage (offshore)—Anchoring your boat offshore eliminates some dangers, but introduces others. Offshore anchorage should be a last resort.
If your boat will be left at a dock, secure it firmly. First, a floating dock with high pilings is the most secure option, as storm surges often swamp boats at fixed docks. Next, use fenders, rubber bumpers and strong rope and make sure the boat will not bang against any fixed structures.
