Quality windows increase a property’s value, enhance energy efficiency, and keep your Raleigh residents snug and content. Windows add beauty and character to a home too, all while providing the basic functionality of indoor climate control. Nevertheless, windows require maintenance just like any other part of a home.
As a rental property owner, you need to routinely examine your rental properties’ windows. Look for gaps, water damage, cracks, and other problems. This routine examination should be part of your complete property maintenance plan. The basic window maintenance that should be completed regularly includes changing the weather-stripping and sealing gaps. Windows in your Raleigh rental property that are broken, seep moisture, or trap condensation, need to be changed.
It is not a good plan to ask residents to perform maintenance, repairs, or replacement of a rental property’s windows, no matter how appealing it may be. Asking residents to perform repairs creates issues concerning liability that can lead to greater problems down the road. This would still be the case even if they possess the proper skills. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that the maintenance or repair your windows need would be executed correctly. Bear in mind that neglected windows could cause more expensive property damage in the future.
Repairing and replacing windows on your own might seem like a good decision, especially if you are trying to reduce expenses. However, even if you know what you are doing, you endanger yourself when you handle a potentially hazardous material such as glass. Also, the proper installation of windows is essential for their long-term effectiveness and function. For these reasons, tasks like replacing glass panes or even whole windows should be left up to the experts.
It can be can be hard to remember to perform regular window maintenance along with everything else you already need to do.
