One of the most important aspects of buying a house is understanding the maintenance that will be involved over the years.
The exterior of a home is the first thing a person sees and there are some easy maintenance tips you can follow to keep it looking fresh.
Handyman St Charles MO – Four Ways To Help You Save Money
1. Caulking Windows and Doors
This is an easy way to save money on your heating and cooling bills. Spend a weekend removing old caulk and installing new around your windows and doors to keep your home warm this winter. One of the easiest tools to use is a caulk gun. It helps to keep things from getting messy and is definitely worth the extra penny.
2. Deck Maintenance
If you already own a deck be sure to clean and treat the wood once or twice a year at least. This will ensure that the deck lasts longer.
If you have the means to do it you should consider adding a deck addition if you don’t already have one. It has been proven that most homeowners who add deck additions end up making most of the money back when they sell the home.
3. Siding Cleaning and Repair
Cleaning or repairing siding can make a house look brand new. Although it can be expensive to replace and a bit of a hassle to repair the value of your home will rise immensely.
4. Painting the Fence
If you have any fences or railings you may want to consider giving them a new paint job whether you are using the same color or want to change it up a bit. If your fence is starting to peel or show wear and tear this is an easy way to make your home look as good as new.
