Home Maintenance Resolutions for 2021

Get a Free Quote Today!

2020 was a year of renovation and home projects as most of us were at home during the lockdown. Many of us can’t help but dream of what we’ll improve upon this year. Let\’s make a pact to skip the fad diets this time around and plan for a more beautiful and comfortable place to call home in 2021.

Send Clutter Packing

A good first step toward the house of your 2021 dreams is an organization session that includes decluttering the past year’s (or, let’s be real, years’) buildup of odds and ends. There are many ways to do this, so choose the method that works best for you and get to work. Assess the need for your current stock of clothes, shoes, books, pantry supplies, and more. Once you’ve removed the items that no longer serve you, take time to organize what’s left, so it’s easy to find and use throughout the coming year. Donate what you no longer need.

Go Green and Save Some Green

As you’re decluttering your home, you’ve got a great opportunity to also look for eco-friendliness. You can start small — noting your stock of lightbulbs, cleaning supplies, and showerheads and planning to replace them with greener versions — or you can research and commit to more major upgrades like solar panels, a composting program, or even a living roof. While some of these switches will take initial costs, remember that you’re also going to save money in the long run.

Examine Your Roof

A roof inspection is one of those preventative maintenance jobs that\’s easy to overlook. Don\’t. Add a once-a-year reminder on your calendar to go out on a warm day and address any roof problems you find. Check the age of your roofing and see if it\’s nearing the end of its life cycle. First Out Roofing provides free roof inspections to North Texas customers. With every free roof inspection, we photograph the damaged areas and take the time to explain our recommended repairs.

Make Your Home Cozier

Maybe it’s a bathroom upgrade, plush new carpet in the family room, or an outdoor dining area for celebrations big and small. If you’re looking for an effective way to improve your daily quality of life and increase the value of your home, an outdoor living space or deck area could be the perfect solution. 

Choose the space you’d most like to show some love and, depending on your budget, embark on an overhaul or a full-blown renovation. You’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor for years and new years to come!
