Storm Center

Severe weather can happen at any time. From tropical storms to hurricanes, these events can bring massive damage to your property and put you and your loved ones in danger. ​

Preparation is vital, and it's never too early. Slide’s Storm Center is built to help you weather the storm before, during, and after.

Weathering the Storm

A quick list of things to do before, during, and after a severe weather event.​

DURING

  • Protect human life at all costs. ​
  • Don’t leave your home until the storm has passed. ​
  • Designate an interior location with no windows on the lowest level.​
  • Be aware that flooding can happen quickly. If you're home, turn off all electricity at the main breaker. Watch for rising water and move to higher ground if water approaches.​
  • Use a National Weather Receiver or other emergency alert service to hear updates.​

AFTER

  • After the storm has passed and it is safe to do so, assess possible damage.​
  • Prevent further damage to the best of your ability, including calling one of Slide's pre-approved emergency services vendors (list below).​
  • Should you need to file a claim, do so as soon as possible.
  • Homeowners insurance does not cover flood. If you have flood or storm surge damage, contact your flood insurance provider. If you do not have a flood policy, contact FEMA.

Emergency Supplies & Go Bag Checklists

We’ve seen many emergency supply lists in our days, and they always seem either too much or too little. ​We wanted to create an emergency supply checklist that was just right.​

3 Ways to Protect Yourself from Contractor Fraud

Prep your property for a storm.

  • Secure or bring inside any unattached items that could be tossed by a high wind. Items such as trash cans, patio furniture, and potted plants.​
  • Trim and remove tree branches that are close to your home.​
  • Protect windows with storm shutters or plywood sheeting.​
  • Clean out drains, gutters, and downspouts.​
  • ​Take photos and/or videos of your home, both inside and outside, to document your contents and home features. This will help accelerate the claims process should you need to file a claim.
  • Inspect screened enclosures and pool cages to ensure the integrity of all fasteners, cables, footings, and anchors. If you need help with this task, reach out to a licensed contractor.

As with all home maintenance, it is important that safety comes first. If needed, please seek guidance from a licensed professional.
