Quality windows boost the value of a property, improve energy efficiency, and keep your Woodstock residents cozy and happy. Windows also add character and beauty to a home while having the basic functionality of indoor climate control. However, windows require maintenance just like any other part of a home.
As a rental property owner, you need to regularly examine the windows of your rental properties. Check for water damage, cracks, gaps, and other issues. This routine examination should be part of your comprehensive property maintenance plan. Sealing gaps and replacing the weather-stripping should be included in your regular basic window maintenance. If any of the windows in your Woodstock rental property seep moisture, trap condensation, or are broken, they have to be replaced.
Although tempting, it is not a smart idea to ask residents to handle maintenance, repairs, or replacement of windows in a rental property. Even if they have the right skills, asking residents to do repairs leads to liability issues. These issues may grow into bigger problems in the future. Also, there is no guarantee that the maintenance or repair your windows require is going to be done right. Bear in mind that neglected windows can result in more expensive property damage further down the road.
Repairing and replacing windows on your own might seem like a good decision, especially if you are trying to reduce expenses. The problem is that even if you know what you are doing, you endanger yourself when you deal with a potentially hazardous material such as glass. Also, correct installation of windows is vital for long-term effectiveness and function. For these reasons, tasks like replacing glass panes or even whole windows should be left up to the experts.
