Great windows add to the value of a property, keep your Ballard residents happy and snug, and enhance energy efficiency. Also, windows add beauty and personality to a home, all while providing the basic functionality of indoor climate control. Nevertheless, windows need maintenance just like all other parts of a home.
As a rental property owner, you should regularly assess your rental properties’ windows for gaps, cracks, water damage, and other issues as part of your comprehensive property maintenance plan. Basic window maintenance to be routinely done involves sealing gaps and changing the weather-stripping. If the windows in your Ballard rental property are broken, seep moisture, or trap condensation, they should be replaced.
Though attractive, it is not a smart idea to ask residents to perform repairs, maintenance, or replacement of the windows of a rental property. Asking residents to execute repairs creates issues regarding liability that can lead to greater problems down the road, even if they possess the right skills. There is also no assurance that the maintenance or repair your windows need is going to be done properly. Bear in mind that neglected windows can cause more costly property damage in the future.
Even though repairing and replacing windows on your own may seem like another good option, especially if you are trying to save some money, you are still putting yourself in danger when you deal with a potentially hazardous material like glass even if you know what you are doing. Also, the correct installation of windows is essential for long-term effectiveness and function. For these reasons, tasks such as replacing glass panes or even entire windows should be done by experts.
Remembering to perform regular window maintenance along with everything else you already have to do can be hard. That’s why Real Property Management Eclipse offers maintenance programs that would take care of all these things for you.
