Prioritizing Your Home Repairs

family-room-670281_1920When it comes to home repairs, prioritization is key. Window World of Long Island knows that although you may want to do a total home renovation, some items need to be taken care of first. Keep in mind that with fall fading into winter, cracks or leaks in your home that may seem harmless at first, will only worsen with time. Don’t put your home and your family in danger, be proactive before a smaller problem turns into a much bigger one.

How do you prioritize? Window World of Long Island is here to provide a checklist of important factors to consider when planning the order of your home repairs.

  • Assess Your Home – Look around your Long Island residence and think about what needs to be fixed. Make sure to check under and around windows and doors and areas you may not use as much, like your attic or basement. Don’t forget the exterior! Check your gutters for clutter.
  • Fix the Critical Issues First – This may sound like a no-brainer, but problems in your home that could lead to more costly and critical issues, need to be dealt with first. For example, if you see water dripping from the ceiling, there may be a hole in your roof. If that doesn’t get fixed soon, your home could end up with moisture and mold damage.
  • Time vs. Money – Gauge how much time and effort you’re willing to put towards home repairs. This will help prioritize what needs to be fixed, and what can wait. You want to be smart about the money you spend, so make sure fixing that crack in your window comes before adding in granite countertops.
