Preventative Maintenance For Your Home

15 Jan2016

Home maintenance doesn’t have to be a chore. When you hire professionals who have the expertise and experience necessary to ensure that your home is its best possible condition, you can eliminate some of the stressors that come along with owning a home.

As a homeowner there are some preventative maintenance services that you need to be aware of. Owning a home is a huge responsibility and by keeping up with regular maintenance you can save yourself from future headaches and financial burdens. Here are three things that should be at the top of your priority list in 2016 and beyond.

1. Gutters

Cleaning your gutters and downspouts on a fairly regular basis is a hugely important preventative maintenance service if you want to avoid costly home repairs. The main purpose of your home’s gutters is to control the water around your home, and if they are blocked by leaves, acorns, twigs, or any other kind of debris they are prevented from performing their main duty.  Cleaning your gutters and downspouts can prevent water damage inside of your home and nesting of unwanted vermin.

2. Windows

Your home’s windows serve various important services. Not only should they match your home beautifully, but they should keep outside elements out, reduce outside noise, and hopefully reduce your energy bills. If your windows have small cracks or leaks, then they will fail at all of the above. By checking your windows on a regular basis you can save yourself the huge expense of having to replace them altogether down the line. Window restoration is a cheaper maintenance option for small imperfections that are affecting the reliability of your home’s windows.

3. Decks

Decks are an extension of your home. They provide a comfortable place for you and your family to gather, while enjoying the outdoors. With regular cleanings and proper maintenance, your deck can increase your home’s value and aesthetics. Power washing your deck regularly will keep it clean, but you should also have it sealed to protect and make sure it looks beautiful year round. KEVCO offers a variety of sealing stains including cedar, redwood, and natural colors.** Take note- Pressure Cleaning and deck sealing cannot be performed if temps are under 50 degrees!
