Tips To Prepare For Hurricane Season

June 15, 2016
Published by

As we enter hurricane season, preparation is the best protection. Two keys to being safe during this season are to prepare for the risks and then to act on those preparations you have made. With the recent flooding in Houston, its best we are all prepared for this hurricane season. Here are some helpful tips to make sure you and your family are prepared:

  • Never risk driving or even walking through high water. Remember that 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away!
  • If you are driving and your vehicle stalls, get out of the car and get to higher ground immediately.
  • Protect your windows with plywood boards, or storm shutters
  • Put together supplies including non-perishable foods, bottled water (at least a gallon per person a day), batteries, flashlights, first aid kit, cash and a battery powered radio.
  • Turn your refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting and open only when needed.
  • Make sure all cars have a full tank of gas
  • Charge all cell phones prior to storm
  • It is good to have a charged camera around to take pictures after the storm of any damage if needed.

Remember the key to making sure you and your family are safe during a hurricane is to be fully prepared. Having a designated plan before the storm hits is the best way to make sure you’re protected.

"We are so grateful to have found Sandcastle Homes! They’ve made the home-buying process so much easier and more enjoyable than we could have imagined. They are responsive, respectful, and always put the customer first. We truly appreciate the speed and accuracy with which they’ve addressed any concerns we’ve brought up throughout the process and can’t wait to officially own our first home. Sandcastle has a team that clearly values one another as much as they do their customers, and you can feel a sense of community when working with them."

"Sandcastle did an amazing job with my house. They came through on everything they promised. Jose Salas, the construction manager, is very helpful even after we closed on the house. He goes above and beyond. Getting to meet the owner, Salomon, during the closing was a great experience as many other builders don’t do this. We love our house and the quality of it!!"

Enrique and Judith

"We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house."

Andres and Marcela

"I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder."
