4 Bonus Tips! Check out these maintenance tips to help keep your home in good shape:
Tip: Once a year, coat your garage door opener’s chain or drive screw with white lithium grease and use a spray lubricant to coat the overhead springs.
Tip: Don’t hold off on replacing leaky windows — rain can seep into your drywall, possibly causing mold.
Tip: If you’re not sure if it’s time to replace your roof, look for these three things while safely on the ground: missing or loose shingles, leaks or asphalt granules in the gutters.
Tip: If you’re looking for a new door, fiberglass may be the way to go. “Fiberglass has now taken the lead over steel entry doors because it doesn’t conduct hot or cold as much, and it has a more realistic wood look,” says Dave Lincon, a home improvement expert for Sears Home Services. It’s easier to maintain as well.
