KKC Inc. are happy to have the business of the good people of Fairfax, however, there are a number of things you can do to make sure that our visits to your home are few and far between. Here are some tips for keeping your doors, windows, gutters and everything else in good condition to ensure that your repair and home improvement Fairfax, VA costs are minimal.
Clean Your Gutters Regularly
When your gutters get bogged down with a bunch of leaves and debris, they can get mildew and mold and they can start to break and fall apart. If you don’t want to have to spend a ton of money replacing your gutters on a regular basis, make sure to give them a good cleaning a few times a year. Always following the proper safety precautions, get a pair of thick rubber gloves and a ladder and scoop them out. You can use the hose to finish the job. By cleaning your gutters now and then, especially during heavy rainy seasons, you can save a lot of money on potential replacements and repairs in the future.
Trim Dangerous Branches
If you want to prevent having to pay repair costs on your roofing and on your skylights, then you’ll be well advised to make a quick call today and spend a few dollars hiring a professional tree doctor to come out and get rid of those dangerous looking branches. If a tree is old, dying and rotting, then branches can just start falling off one after another over time, and in order to make sure that those branches don’t hurt your home, or that fresh branches don’t hit your skylight in heavy winds, then you’ll want to get rid of those high-risk branches early to make sure they don’t cost you later on.
Prevent Bird Window Strikes
It’s surprising how common it can become in certain instances, but if you live where there are a lot of birds, if you have a feeder outside, expect to see a window strike now and then. There are a few ways you can keep this from happening and cracking your window and injuring birds. First of all, don’t place potted plants right in front of the window, or birds will look at it, think it’s part of the outside area, and fly right at it. Secondly, you can try putting a “feather guard” on the outside, which is a suction cup with feathers on it to warn birds that that’s a solid surface. A light smear of glass wax, fake snow, toothpaste or other non-abrasive substances can also do the trick.
Taking care of your home doesn’t just mean waiting until repairs are needed and then having them done or performing a lot of home improvement Fairfax, VA projects. If you really want to save money in the long run, KKC Inc. is more than happy to make repairs for you, but even happier to help you prevent them from being necessary.
