Home Exterior Repair For Seniors

When considering exterior home repair for seniors, whether you’re helping the folks or still able to do it yourself, you want to know if it makes sense economically, functionally, and esthetically.  These are the exterior home repairs that we think make the most sense for seniors:

  • Caulk all your doors and windows regularly to stop air leakage.  Windows – If you have single pane glass windows with old fashioned storm windows on the outside consider changing the window sash to an insulated glass sash. You do not rip out the old frames saving the cost of exterior or interior modifications. The windows will be more energy efficient and look better and this modernizes your home.
