A lot of rainfall? Hurricanes? Flooding? Consider the following to protect your home against water and wind damage:
- Impact-resistant glass can save your windows and doors from hurricane-related damage.
- Carpets are ruined by flooding. Install tile instead for flooring with a longer life-span.
- Installing electrical outlets 24 or 36 inches from the floor (rather than the conventional 16) will lessen the chance of water damage.
