World News – For all those in the Atlanta, Georgia area you are getting ready to see a lot of rain and strong winds over the next couple of days as Tropical Storm Colin heads your way, the rains should be harder than the ones falling in Costa Rica.
It might sound expensive but maintaining your roof doesn’t really have to be a big expense, and it is a lot cheaper than having to replace your roof or having to hire an Atlanta roofing company to perform an Atlanta roof repair after a big storm like Tropical Storm Colin.
Remember June 1st marked the beginning of hurricane season and only 5 days in there is a tropical storm blowing towards Atlanta.
Make sure to contact a reputable and reliable Atlanta roofing contractor to maintain your roof in order to enhance its durability and prolong its lifespan and usefulness. A roofing contractor may can install metal hurricane straps or clips to anchor the roof to the home’s walls from the inside. Bear in mind that maintaining the soundness of your roof gives it a better chance of prevailing against the destructive winds of a hurricane or tropical storm.
Florida declared a state of emergency Monday as strengthening Tropical Storm Colin promised strong winds and the potential for serious flooding from heavy rains.
The storm is expected to make landfall on Monday with winds of up to 50 mph.
As much as 8 inches of rain is forecast to fall across an area from Mexico’s northeast Yucatan peninsula east to Florida, Southern Georgia and coastal areas of the Carolinas.
