Our home keeps us safe no matter what the weather is outside — but shouldn’t we return the favor? — but shouldn’t we keep our homes in great shape too? Guarding the value of your investment is very important, and some homeowners overlook this. Here are a few ways to protect your home.

Outdoor Maintenance

While broad, there are a ton of different things that need to be taken care of on the outside of your home. Make sure that your siding is intact and not broken. The elements can cause a ton of damage by allowing water to seep in and ruin walls and fixtures. Your gutters are also a huge culprit as well — make sure they’re not clogged. This can lead to leaks and flooding, not to mention damaged gutters. A Gutter Helmet is a great way to battle the debris that may clog them!

Indoor Maintenance

The inside of your home is just as important as the outside. Regularly checking for signs of leaks is important in preventing damage before it starts, especially during the colder months. Outdated fixtures such as HVAC units can cause problems when paired with new technology, as it is not capable of working as efficiently as it should. This can lead to costly fixes, which are not favorable for a home buyer. Your floors are also very important to keep the value high in your home. Upgrading your flooring to hardwood or new carpeting can increase home value as well.
