Great windows enhance energy efficiency, add to the value of a property, and keep your Clear Lake residents happy and snug. Windows add personality and beauty 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 make it a point to regularly examine the windows of your rental properties for gaps, cracks, water damage, and other issues. This regular examination should be part of your complete property maintenance plan. Routine basic window maintenance should include sealing gaps and replacing the weather-stripping. If there are any windows in your Clear Lake rental property that seep moisture, trap condensation, or are broken, they have to be replaced.
Asking residents to perform repairs, maintenance, or replacement of a rental property’s windows is not a good idea, no matter how tempting it may seem. 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. There is also no assurance that the maintenance or repair your windows need will be done right. Keep in mind that neglected windows can cause more costly property damage in the future.
Repairing and replacing windows by yourself might seem like another good option, especially if you are trying to save money. The problem is that even if you know what you are doing, you put yourself in danger when you work with potentially hazardous material such as glass. Also, the proper installation of windows is essential for their long-term effectiveness and function. For these reasons, jobs such as replacing glass panes or even entire windows should be left up to the experts.
Remembering to perform routine window maintenance along with everything else you already have to do can be tough. That’s why Real Property Management Prestige offers maintenance programs that would take care of all these tasks for you.
