Now is the time of year when people make New Year’s resolutions. Some decide to go to the gym, start a new hobby, or eat healthier, but have you ever thought of setting a resolution for your home? Your house is an investment, so you should keep up-to-date on repairs and upgrades. Maybe your roof is on its last leg or your windows are getting drafty. It may be time for new ones. In 2023, set a resolution to improve the quality of your home for the safety of you and your family and to increase curb appeal.
Inspect Your Home
At the start of this new year, take a look around your house. Does the roof have missing shingles? Is there a leak? Does your siding have wind damage? Are your windows drafty? These are all questions that you should seek the answers to. Leaving a problem persist with your roof, windows, or siding is only going to cause more damage to your house and your wallet.
Roofs are made to last 20-30 years. Problems may arise at the end of a roof’s lifespan. A leaky roof can cause a multitude of problems, including mold growth, increase in utility bills, fire hazards, and damage to the structure of the house.
Windows are meant to keep the warm air in and the cold air out, and vice versa. When the air from outside starts to get inside, there is a problem. Drafty windows cost you extra on your heating/cooling bill.
Damaged or old siding can also be a big problem to you and your home. It can lead to water damage, increased utility bills, mold growth, etc.
If you noticed a pattern, you would be right. Money, money, money. The defective parts of your home will cost you a lot, but that can be prevented. If you replace the areas of your home that are in need before they start causing problems, you can save yourself a whole lot of headaches and money.
