Birkdale’s Climate: Potential Risks and Preventative Measures 

  • Salt Damage: Being close to the coast, properties in Birkdale may be susceptible to salt damage. This can damage building materials like concrete, brick, and stucco. We inspect property for signs of salt damage, such as cracks, discoloration, or efflorescence (a white, crystalline deposit on surfaces). 
  • Hot, humid summers can put a strain on air conditioning systems. Recommend that homeowners have their air conditioners serviced regularly to ensure they are functioning properly.
  • Mild winters: Mild winters may not require extensive winterization measures, but it is still important to check for cracks or gaps around windows and doors that could allow drafts. 
  • Soil Composition: Coastal areas are often known for having sandy soil. Sandy soil can be prone to erosion and may require special foundation considerations compared to other soil types. 
  • Torrential rain: Torrential rain can cause flooding, especially in low-lying areas. Recommend that homeowners check their drainage systems and gutters to ensure they are clear and functioning properly. 
  • Storms and Hailstones: Storms, especially hailstorms can damage roofs, windows, and siding. Advise homeowners to inspect their roofs for signs of hail damage, such as cracked or missing shingles.
