Inspect Your Windows

Use a screwdriver to probe the wood trim surrounding your windows and see if there are holes or signs of rot. Apply caulk on holes that you see to prevent drafts. You should also check the weather stripping on your windows for air leaks to prevent energy loss. You can also rely on a construction company in Lincoln, NE, such as us, to help you. We can replace your old windows with new ones that are more airtight to ensure that no drafts enter your home.

Inspect Your Roof

Using a pair of binoculars, inspect your shingles from the ground. You should also check your interior to see if there are signs of leaks such as stains or dark spots on the surfaces of your walls. If your roof or interior shows one of these signs, then your roof is not in good shape. As a certified HAAG inspector, we know a lot about roofs and how to deal with problems related to roofs. We can replace missing and broken shingles to prevent water from spreading through your roofing system. We can replace your roof’s flashing to prevent leaks that can seep into your home.
