Palm trees are blowing over in a tropical storm We mitigate and restore storm damage in Miami Beach.

SERVPRO® of Miami Beach is no stranger to severe weather. Severe storms and hurricanes bring high winds to Edgewater, and high winds can bring wind damage. Here are some wind mitigation tips to protect your home and family during severe winds from State Farm Insurance:

Traditional Homes

  • Keep your home firmly anchored in high winds by having anchor bolts with heavy-gauge, square bolt washers installed to connect your floor to the foundation
  • Reinforce the rest of the frame by connecting wall and floor components with properly installed plywood or oriented strand board (OSB) and attach roof trusses or rafters to the walls with metal connectors
    • On existing homes, this can be done when replacing siding

Manufactured Homes

  • Manufactured homes are more prone to damage from high winds as a result of non-permanent foundations
  • Inspect all straps and tie-downs regularly for rust, weakness, or wear and have repairs made immediately


  • Install windows rated for the wind speeds in your region
  • For the best protection in hurricane-prone areas, install impact-resistant permanent shutters that meet applicable building code approved standards
