What Does El Nino Mean For Homeowners
Posted by Techyscouts | Posted on 10/19/2015
California is in the midst of one of the worst droughts in the state’s recent memory, but climate experts have confirmed “support” is on the way in the form of one of the strongest El Nino’s in history. But while this may be good for water-starved Southern California as a whole, the sudden uptick in severe storms and extreme rainfall may be more of a curse than a blessing for home and property owners. Here are some things you need to know about how this year’s El Nino will affect your home.
What Is El Nino?
For starters, here is some background about this climate phenomenon. While the long-term causes are not completely understood, El Nino is a complex weather pattern that occurs every few years in which unusually warm water appears off the coast of South America, causing an increase in humidity that leads to a season full of heavy rains and strong storms. So what does it mean for you? You will likely need to shell out money for repairs, and you will lose value on your home if it is not repaired in time.
What Should I Do About El Nino?
If you are planning to hold onto your property through the stormy season, it is time to start roof work now. The longer you wait, the more difficult and expensive it will be to secure a qualified roofing company for any outstanding repairs and weatherproofing. If you are selling your home or property, it is time to kick your efforts into overdrive. If you wait into the rainy season, you may be risking thousands of potential dollars on repairs and jeopardizing the value of your home by keeping it on the market for too long.
