  1. Secure Anything Loose During Strong Winds

 

Prepare your patio for Arizona’s thunderstorm winds. With speeds of over 70+ at times and damaging straight-line winds of up to 100 mph. Strong winds can sweep away loose objects in your patio such as outdoor furniture and decor, electrical appliances, loose bricks and patio roof or torn loose objects during a thunderstorm. Secure them by tying up, stacking your outdoor furniture in the corner or near a wall, or covering them with weather-resistance outdoor cover. Make necessary repairs or replacement for loose bricks and patio roof.

  1. Check Patio Roof for Leaks and Seal Up Between Storms

Expect more downpour all throughout August and into September in the metro Phoenix area. A roof leak can damage your investments, so better check for any leak as early as now. Do an inspection after a storm in case of tear or break; seal up any leak between storms using the right materials.

 

Plastic and vinyl patio roofs are more susceptible to wind damage, so better choose a durable material in the first place. All Pro Shades Concepts Awnings are sewn with Gore Tenara Thread that can handle extreme weather and is water-repellant.

  1. Store Away Anything That You Don’t Want Covered In Dust

Safely store them indoors to prevent any damages or extra cleaning after a dust storm. For furniture that can’t be moved inside, cover them so it won’t get soaked with sand and dirt.
