Great windows enhance energy efficiency, boost a property’s value, and keep your Pasadena residents snug and content. Windows add personality and beauty to a home too, all while providing the basic functionality of indoor climate control. And, just like any other part of a home, windows need maintenance.
As a rental property owner, you need to routinely examine the windows of your rental properties for cracks, water damage, gaps, and other problems. This routine examination should be part of your complete property maintenance plan. The basic window maintenance to be routinely performed includes sealing gaps and changing the weather-stripping. If there are any windows in your Pasadena rental property that seep moisture, trap condensation, or are broken, they have to be replaced.
Though it might be tempting, it is not a smart idea to ask residents to do maintenance, repairs, or replacement of a rental property’s windows. Even if they have the skills for it, requesting residents to perform repairs bring about liability issues. These issues could lead to greater problems down the road. Also, there is no guarantee that the maintenance or repair your windows require is going to be done right. Remember that neglected windows can cause greater property damage further down the road.
Repairing and replacing windows by yourself may appear like another good choice, especially if you are trying to save some money. The problem is that even if you know what you are doing, you put yourself in danger when you deal with a potentially hazardous material like glass. Also, the correct installation of windows is vital for long-term effectiveness and function. For these reasons, tasks like replacing glass panes or even entire windows should be done by the professionals.
Remembering to perform regular window maintenance along with everything else you already need to do can be hard. That’s why Real Property Management East San Gabriel Valley offers maintenance programs that would take care of all these tasks for you. From routine maintenance to window replacement, we can handle all window-related needs of your Pasadena rental property and ensure that the job is done right.
