Sure enough, businesses that sell generators and roofing saw intense activity on Saturday. 

With the threat of wind storms picking up, contractors are saying people should take some common sense precautions. 

"If they do have generators, [be sure] that they know where to put them, not too close to your house," says Carmen Santoro of the Better Contractors Bureau, "Definitely don't put them in your garage. That type of thing."

In addition, Santoro suggests that everyone secure all outdoor lawn furniture, such as barbecue grills.

Remodelrama is sponsored by the Better Contractors Bureau, and they say that the show will continue on Sunday, even as the winds pick up.
