5 things you can
do to help prepare
for cylcones.

Organise repairs to 
your roof and balcony

Regular inspections and repairs can ensure your roof and balcony are ready to withstand wild weather. Wind and rain will find the weakest links, so all parts of the building (roof cladding, fascias, gutters, window seals, skylights, whirly birds and roof-to-wall connections) need to be checked regularly for loose or missing fittings, rust, rot, UV damage and insect attack.​

Trim trees and branches
around your home​

Regular inspections can help prevent potential damage caused by high winds. Download your tree trimming guide by clicking the link below. 

Tie down or pack away
any loose items on
your property

If a cyclone is on its way ensure all loose items are tied down or packed away as these can be picked up by the wind and cause damage to properties, as well as endanger people.

Use plastic tarps
or waterproof sheets
to cover windows and
tape up the bottom
of glass door​s

This helps to reduce wind driven rain
entering your home and the
subsequent damage that comes with it.​

Place temporary shutters 
over windows and
other openings​

If windows or openings are likely to be exposed to flying debris temporary shutters can help
prevent damage.
