PatioCrew.com Advocates for Preemptive Home Maintenance
Home maintenance is extremely important. If ignored, it could cost homeowners time and money in the future. Which? recently offered advice for people to keep their homes in good condition. PatioCrew.com, a contracting company, agreed with the tips.
Orange County, CA (I-Newswire) June 26, 2012 - Owning a home is about more than making a mortgage payment and keeping the yard tidy. It also involves regular home maintenance. With summer heating things up, The National House-Building Council recommends individuals take the time to ensure their home is healthy, according to a Which? article. PatioCrew.com, a family-owned contracting company, suggests following the tips, as outlined in the news article, will benefit homeowners, along with one other solid piece of advice.
First, people should always check their roof for damage, particularly after a bad storm. They can look from the ground for any obvious problems, such as cracked or loose tiles. Cleaning gutters is also essential to prevent water damage. As temperatures rise outside, make sure to switch the thermostat to a cooler setting to save money on your electricity bill. Summer is also a good time to have an annual boiler check done and bleed radiators to seep out any air pockets. Overflowing drains can create water issues so look for any blockages. Remove large debris that could possibly interfere with solar panels, but not do damage the equipment. PatioCrew.com cautions people to be careful when handling solar panels, particularly since it involves going on top of the roof.
Another suggestion is to test smoke detectors and change the batteries regularly. Smoke detectors usually only last about 10 years before they need to be replaced. If people own home security systems, run a test to make sure it functions properly. Also, check the doors and windows to make sure the locks are in good working order. Some people tend to put off plumbing jobs, but summer is a great time to fix dripping taps and leaks. In addition, individuals should repair damaged fences and put a new coat of paint on them every three to five years. Keep nearby bushes trimmed so they continue to grow in a healthy manner. Finally, external woodwork needs to undergo a varnishing treatment every few years.
Some homeowners tend to wait years before taking any of these precautionary measures. However, Warren Kindberg, owner of PatioCrew.com, said that route could have serious effects on the homeowners in many ways. The best option to take action sooner, rather than later, he said.
“Doing monthly or yearly maintenance to your home is less expensive in the long run than waiting to make repairs all at once,” said Warren Kindberg, owner of PatioCrew.com. “We suggest signing up for monthly maintenance contracts to avoid expensive repairs later.”
