Now is the time to make sure our home is ready for the new year. Several critical areas of your home need to be inspected and maintained for your family’s protection and comfort. Doing so can ensure that your home stays energy-efficient as well.
To make sure you are on the right track when it comes to inspections, here are the parts of your home you need to check:
- Check the foundation of your home. Check for any cracks that seem to be widening. Caulk tiny gaps to ensure that water doesn’t find a way into the foundation.
- Inspect your roof for any signs like missing or broken shingles and loose or rusted flashing. Repair these issues as soon as you can to avoid expensive water damage repairs.
- Make sure the gutters are clean. Keeping the gutters functioning properly can help prevent damage to your roof, walls, attic space, or other parts of your home.
- Check the windows and doors for any signs of damage. Seal spaces or gaps that may cause drafts. This will make sure your home stays properly insulated and energy-efficient.
You may want to consider window replacement in Houston TX if your windows are in rough shape. Getting rid of your old, worn-out windows can be a great way to start the New Year right, especially if you’re getting top-performing windows from Renewal by Andersen®.
Our windows are made with innovative materials, which can ensure durability and performance throughout the years to come, such as advanced Fibrex® frames.
Fibrex is a composite material that combines the low maintenance qualities of vinyl and the strength and insulating characteristics of wood. It is designed to be highly durable and virtually maintenance-free. Also, it is made not to rot, fade, wrap, or corrode, which means you wouldn’t worry about damage any time soon. Having that kind of durability means that your home can be more effectively sealed and insulated, which will result in lower energy costs for you in the coming years.
Aside from durability, RbA windows come in various styles. We offer a wide array of window style for your home including awning, casement, picture, and double hung windows in Houston TX.
