Fierce winds with gusts exceeding 55 mph are currently wreaking havoc across the United States and other parts of the world, placing millions of people under wind alerts.

These powerful gusts pose severe threats, including widespread power outages and significant coastal flooding.

The potential for extensive property damage is high, and immediate action is crucial to safeguard your business and homes against these dangerous conditions.

The Impact of Fierce Winds

The recent weather forecasts indicate that strong winds can cause irreparable damage to both residential and commercial properties.

These winds have the strength to uplift roofs, shatter windows, and cause significant structural damage.

Coastal areas are particularly vulnerable, with the added risk of flooding increases the destructive potential.

In this episode I bring to the forefront how the first key to minimizing damage lies in understanding how wind interacts with surfaces.

When winds encounter a structure, they seek the path of least resistance.

This means that any gaps, holes, or weak seams become entry points for wind penetration.

Once inside, the wind's pressure can cause significant uplift forces, leading to catastrophic failures of roofs and walls.

Here are 3 Simple Steps to Protect Your Property

1. Seal All Building Surfaces:
One of the most effective defenses against wind damage is to ensure that your building's surfaces are completely sealed.

This involves inspecting your property for any potential penetration points where wind could enter.

2. Address Gaps, Holes, and Seams: Look for any openings, no matter how small, in the structure of your home or building.

These include gaps around windows and doors, holes in the walls or roof, and open seams in the building's exterior.

It's essential to plug these openings with durable, long-term solutions. This is something weak paint or cheap encapsulants can’t do.

3. Use Proven Protective Coatings: Applying a fluid coating system like those offered by Global Encasement Inc. can provide a sustainable and effective solution.

These coatings are designed to flow into and seal any openings as they dry, creating a continuous, protective barrier against wind penetration.
