Summer is the season where renovations and repairs are mostly done. Aside from the fact that summer gives out a longer time of the day and more drier weather, it is also the time where most are on vacation. Most owners skip off repairs knowing that these may be costly and expensive. That should not be the case today since repairs don’t have to cost a lot. Small updates now a day can result in big impacts to improve the feel of your home
May it be for a new resident or for improvement of a house rented long-term, updating your Castro Valley rental home will improve its worth of investment and overall presentation of the property. Here is a summer repair checklist that will help improve and guide your small updates ahead.
Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
One of the major aspects of the house that must not be disregarded is the condition of its walls and interior paint. Freshly painted walls impart a fresh new look to residents that will give them a lasting impression of preservation intentions from the owner. This also shows to them that the owner is concerned with the coziness of their stay within the property. But still, we cannot expect that every resident will grasp the fact and need to treat the property as best as they could. Wears and tears are expected and this could need more and frequent touch-ups within the 7-year lifespan of the interior paint.
By repairing and repainting used and worn out walls, you are adding worth to your Castro Valley property giving more value to the satisfaction of your residents. Neutral colors suit best with the extensive appeal it can offer, thus making matching accents easy. It also offers a “blank canvas” feel for new tenants that will be helpful in making the room their own.
Replace Your Front Door
A new front door is also a great deal of impact with its inexpensive price. The front door has the details that serve as a determining factor in the first impression of the house. Putting on a new front door will increase its worth and curb appeal. It is also the house’s first line of defense from possible intruders. Therefore, its material and safety features should be put into importance. Most doors will help improve energy efficiency depending on the installation and material.
Maximize Your Lighting
As electricity demand in the house increases, so also are your utility bills. As we enter the issue of energy saving methods, it is important to consider your light fixtures both inside and outside your house. Light fixture also is one of the easiest upgrades you can do to light up an old house. These are very vital as it adds to the security feature of the rental property. Lighting can also be coupled with a ceiling fan that is very usable in houses located in warmer areas. Not only does it help light up a room, but it also helps cool down the area.
Basic Plumbing Maintenance
Just like light fixtures, faucets and toilets are also important items you should add to your checklist. They are the most used and usually the most disregarded components of the house. Most residents may fail to attend immediately to water leaks and pressure problems causing bigger damages in the long run. Getting new faucets and toilets can also achieve a more stylish room with the right material. A home needs to be both functional and attractive for it to serve its essence and purpose. Small repairs can help you achieve these conditions instantly without cutting off your budget drastically.
