Hurricane Preparation with Shorelock Home Watch

We cannot stress enough the importance of preparing for a large storm or hurricane. Hurricanes create a certain type of chaos and confusion for coastal communities. This unknown fear produces a large demand for preparation services and goods to weather the storm. For example, plywood, hardware, food, water and most importantly fuel. With the impending storm approaching, it is nearly impossible to find a local contractor, handy man, or service person to accommodate your needs. As a Collaborative Home Watch client, you can rest easy in the fact that we have you covered… Let us plan your protective measures.
