The Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) is urging home-owners to integrate disaster-resistance into their remodelling plans this year.
“Home improvements are a great way to increase a home’s curb appeal and value,” said Julie Rochman, president & CEO of IBHS. “However, those improvements won't mean much if the home is damaged or destroyed by a natural disaster. With hurricane season approaching, and given the year-round danger of wildfire, hail and other severe storms across the country, homeowners should make disaster-resistance part of their home improvement plans.
'IBHS’ web site, www.DisasterSafety.org includes extensive information for home-owners about the specific measures they can implement to strengthen their home to make it more resistant to the natural hazards that are likely to occur in their geographic area,” Rochman said.
