How to Prepare Your Home for the Rainy Season

Severe rainfall is commonplace in the Philippines. Special weather warnings that involve heavy rains can be detrimental to both properties and livelihood. Heavy rains are a natural hazard that may lead to flooding in some areas. While the weather is beyond our control, one way to preempt the detrimental effects is by preparing our home.

How do you go about preparing your home for heavy rainfall? Of course, you want both the outside and inside to be prepared. 

 

Preparing the outside of your home

Buy Boysen Paint 16 Liters Baguio Green Roof Guard here

 

Check the roof

The roof is a good place to start. You want to make sure that it holds throughout the entire ordeal of roaring wind. Inspect the roof first, but do this at least a month before the wet season begins. 

Check for any damages and fix them. Fix any cracks, holes, or leaks in the roof. However, if it’s too late to call the expert, you may want to cover it temporarily. Make sure to utilize a more permanent solution after the storm.

If repairing the rook is no longer an option, more so if the damage is widespread, consider replacing your roofs. A new installation is an expensive option, but the upside is you can choose roofing materials that best fight heavy rains. For further protection, if you are going to use metal roofing, use Roof Guard paint, a water-based acrylic paint that prevents cracking and peeling on metal roofs.

 

Buy Davies Sun & Rain Elastomeric Waterproofing Paint Cheezee Yellow 1 Liter here

As a proactive way to deal with safeguarding roofs against the elements, you might as well use elastomeric paint. It provides a robust shield against rain and lasts up to ten years before another coating is needed.

Clear the gutter

Gutters direct rainwater away from the actual house, but clogging may occur if the gutters or eaves-through are not adequately cleared—rainfall pools in unclear gutters and downspouts. 

When this happens, there’s a chance that water would seep into cracks and lead to dripping or leakage. Seepage can also cause molding, which may result in foundational and structural issues down the road.

As a rule of thumb, do a regular cleaning once every three months. Strive to clear the gutters and sprouts every month if there are many trees around the house. Better yet, trim the trees before an expected storm.

Store valuable items

Buy Sunnyware Stock Box 70 Liters 868 Black here

If there are valuable items outside, such as plants, tools, grills, and outdoor furniture, you should store them inside the house or a shed. If putting them inside is not an option, at least cover them.

Secure the covering as well. Use hooks or stakes to secure them on the ground properly. Otherwise, the items will be blown around or tipped over. 

 

Secure fences

If not the roofs, strong winds can also lift and throw the fence against the house’s walls. So make sure that you secure them properly as well.

Buy Boysen Paint 4 Liters Spanish Red Roof Guard Gloss here

Like how you protect your roofs using Boysen RoofGuard paint, it also pays to invest in your fence paint. The best fence paint to use is preserving paint. You may use oil- or water-based paint, but don’t skip using a primer. Primer also acts to block mildew from moisture.

Clear the street grates

Buy Boysen Paint 1 Liter White Plasolux Glazing Putty here

Speaking of the road, grates above drainage canals must be cleared as well. Trapped debris may also cause flooding due to the disrupted garbage flow and overflowing. In addition, some areas experience excessive puddles that last for several days because of uncleared grates. 

The worst that could happen is the flood water entering your home, which could also lead to all sorts of damages. For instance, if you have wooden furniture inside, the moisture can penetrate cracks or dents. So you might as well apply coating and sealant like Plasolux glazing putty to wooden furniture to protect them from seepage.

While at it, if you noticed wood swelling a few days after the rain, it means moisture has already penetrated the insides. If this happens on the door or window, it will get difficult even to lock them.

Check the electrical line

Electrical wiring is often overlooked when checking and preparing the house for heavy rainfall. Nonetheless, this aspect can also cause severe damages. For instance, if there’s flooding inside the home and mindlessly turns on the light, you run the risk of electrocution.

So check the electrical system, including the sockets, switches, and plugs. If you fail to do this, you might need to live without power in the first few days after the storm.

True, they say that prevention is better than cure. When it comes to our homes, it means fixing whatever needs fixing because the faster you fix damages, the more money you can save. Above are some ways to protect your home from harsh elements, especially during the rainy season in the Philippines. No matter how you go about the preparation, the important thing is to prevent the rains from giving your home a beating.
