Prepare your home for storm season

Storm season is here, which means it's time to do some maintenance around your property to make sure you are as ready as possible.

You need to clear any leaves and debris out of eaves and gutters to ensure proper drainage of roof water during severe water events. This is particularly important if you are living in leafy suburbs.

It may also be a good time to do any surface drainage and garden maintenance, which is necessary to prevent subsidence, and should be done on an annual basis.
