Storm season is upon us again, bringing the potential for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and hurricanes through November. Since post-storm cleanup can strain bank accounts, some pre-storm preparation can save homeowners thousands of dollars in damage.

The average national costs for the most commonly requested repair tasks range from $285 for generator repair to $6,800 for roof replacement, according to HomeAdvisor’s Cost Guide.

To educate homeowners, the experts at HomeAdvisor are providing tips for pre-storm preparation and post-storm cleanup:

Before storms hit, tend to window cracks and chipped glass, check and repair roof shingles, and remove dead or dying trees. You can also download the free Home911 mobile app, which provides dedicated 24/7 emergency support for home repairs.
