Roofing and Solar Panel Hurricane Preparedness

Lets go ahead and state the obvious – no one wants their roof to blow off of their home. Let’s face it, if we encounter a storm capable of bringing that kind of damage, we are all going to have big things to worry about. However, here are steps you can take to solidify your roofing.

  • Get your roof and solar panels inspected. It isn’t everyday that average homeowners take a close look at their roofs. Have you been on yours lately? We didn’t think so. Making sure your roof is in good shape is one of the most important things you can do before a storm.Same goes for your solar panels. Make sure they are free and clear of any debris, and that there are no issues with the way they are attached to your roof.
  • Remove potential projectiles. Those adirondack chairs may look nice sitting in your backyard, but they can become a serious hazard if the wind of a storm picks them up and sends them flying. Place any loose items inside, in your garage, so that they do not become a danger during a storm.
  • Trim down trees. Not just a hurricane preparedness tip, keeping trees near your roof and solar panels trimmed is necessary to optimize the amount of sunlight reaching your solar panels. In the event of a hurricane, keeping them trimmed makes them less likely to fall on your roof and panels and cause major damage.


The best protection against hurricanes and strong storms is to have high quality roofing and solar on your home. If your roof is old, poorly constructed, or of bad quality, it is more likely to sustain damage during harsh weather. Bison Roofing & Solar works with only the best roofing materials in the market, from tile and shingle to super durable metal. If you think your roof needs an upgrade, Bison is your best resource for a new, high quality roof.

As far as our solar panels are concerned, they are made of the best materials and are built to withstand winds well over 100mph. This means that even in a strong hurricane, they will stay in place. Not all solar panels are built the same, so it is important to go with a company like Bison that uses this caliber of product.
