Insulate Your Boonville Rental Home This Fall

Eco-Friendly Insulation in a Boonville Rental HomeAs the weather cools and the leaves start changing, there are specific repairs and maintenance tasks that have to be performed on your Boonville rental properties before winter. In setting up for the impending cold weather, you have to ensure that your rental home is properly insulated. Insulation and weather stripping add efficiency and value to a rental home, safeguarding it and its residents from extreme temperatures and high energy expenses. A well-insulated rental property is one that would keep residents warm and happy the whole winter.

As with other maintenance and repair tasks related to the structure of a rental home, insulation and weather stripping are not for the residents to set up, replace, or maintain. There is no guarantee that residents are going to do a good job. Also, handling specific types of insulation can be dangerous if not done correctly.

As the owner, you could try to insulate your rental home yourself. There are numerous methods that will provide good results. Fiberglass insulation comes in batts and rolls, ready for installation in walls and in the attic. Other types of insulation include blown-in insulation, which is a kind of loose fill blown into attics or walls. And expanding foam insulation, which sprays on something similar to a thin foam but then it expands to fill a gap or space around pipes, windows and doors, and other areas. And of course, weather stripping is applied around doors and windows to stop drafts. Each type is made for use in different sections of the home and necessitates the use of safety gear and certain specialized equipment to install.

Whether insulating your rental properties for the first time or replacing old or worn insulation, insulation needs to be part of your property management plan. Existing insulation and weather stripping must be assessed yearly for signs of wear. Holes or gaps should be filled before cold weather arrives. Putting it off until your Boonville residents complain or until the problem gets too big to ignore is not a good idea.
