Quick Tips to Maintain Home Value
3 Easy steps to protect your home from moisture and maintain home value:
Moisture is the #1 enemy to your home. It compromises every structural part of your home and ages it faster than it should. Following these 3 steps will keep moisture at bay and help maintain the value of your home.
- Rain: when its raining, look at your gutters. Is there water over flowing or is there water dripping between the gutter and where they are attached to your home? Is there water flowing away from your home? Proper drainage away from your home is key to keeping moisture out of your home.
- Storms: After a heavy storm is a great time to inspect your home for imperfections. Check your roof, ceilings, windows, doors and even your attic. Look for accumulation of moisture, pooling of water and any noticeable damage.
