Quality windows increase the value of a property, keep your Satellite Beach residents cozy and happy, and improve energy efficiency. Windows add beauty and character to a home too, all while providing the basic functionality of indoor climate control. Still, windows need 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. If the windows in your Satellite Beach rental property are broken, seep moisture, or trap condensation, they have to be replaced.
Though it might be tempting, asking residents to perform repairs, maintenance, or replacement of a rental property’s windows is not a good idea. Even if they have the skills for it, requesting residents to perform repairs bring about liability issues. These issues could lead to greater problems down the road. There is also no assurance that the maintenance or repair your windows need will be performed correctly. Bear in mind that neglected windows could cause more expensive property damage in the future.
Repairing and replacing windows by yourself may seem like another good choice, particularly if you are trying to save money. However, you are still putting yourself in harm’s way when you deal with a potentially hazardous material like glass. This remains true even if you know what you are doing. Additionally, correct installation of windows is central to long-term effectiveness and function. Because of this, jobs like replacing glass panes or even whole windows have to be left up to the professionals.
Remembering to perform regular window maintenance along with everything else you already need to do can be hard. That’s why Real Property Management Brevard offers maintenance programs that will take care of all these things for you.
