Cornerstone Severe Weather Information Guide

Hurricane Season is June 1st through November 30th, but Mother Nature does not always pay attention to her calendar, so it is wise to be prepared all the time. Cornerstone is here to help you protect your property against hurricane damage.

Cornerstone offers a number of preventative and response services including:

Inclement weather is a given here in Florida. What we don’t know is when, or how bad the weather will be. That is why you need to be prepared with a plan. The following is an example of our commitment and dedication to your property. We know when a storm hits this area were prepared to provide immediate assistance.

At Cornerstone we have a full lineup of equipment and trained operators ready to be at your doorstep quickly to clear pathways for ingress and egress along your property’s roadways and parking lots.

Our trained chain saw operators can quickly cut through fallen limbs while our crews work to neatly stack the debris in a non-hazardous location. Our high speed blowers remove lighter debris and wood chips so slip and fall hazards are reduced for pedestrians.

Cornerstone’s priority, should a severe storm be in the area, is for you to have a stress and worry free experience when dealing with landscape clean up after the storm. As soon as conditions are safe, Cornerstone teams will be out cleaning up downed trees, tree limbs, and any other debris created by a hurricane or tropical storm to restore the landscape.

For more information and your Free Storm Preparedness Evaluation, contact us now at scheduling@cornerstonesolutionsgroup.com. Capricious weather need not leave us unprepared. Remember, in times of danger and uncertainty, we are the answer!
