Louisiana is located in the extreme south bordering the Gulf of Mexico. It experiences long, hot and humid summers and short, mild winters. Strong storms and hurricanes are a concern in this area, however. With much of the coastal part of the state being under sea level, flooding is also a major concern. Tornadoes are also frequent in Louisiana, averaging 20+ per year. Use the following list when thinking about undertaking home improvement projects in Louisiana:

  • With high winds common in the state, make sure your roof is able to withstand these conditions with extra bracing and hurricane clips which tie rafters together. Consult a roofing expert who can give you suggestions.
  • Any areas below ground level should be equipped with a hard-wired sump pump. Check the pump regularly for proper operation.
  • Any exterior glass should be of at least laminated glass strength, if not complete safety glass to protect from projectiles during high wind events.
