Luckily, during our truck fiasco, we were able to utilize and hire out some much needed help! Having window installers and an electrician was priceless while looking for a new truck and dealing with transportation issues. The electrician came out to help install new lighting and switch outlets/switches. In addition, we had 5 windows replaced in the kitchen and living room, which was also WELL worth it! These professionals were able to get these repairs done in a day, whereas; for Danny and I, it would have taken a lot longer and taken up valuable time away from us.
We we able to replace the back and front exterior doors, as well as, a new storm door for the front. When searching for doors, we have a few “go to’s” we consider.
A storm door for the front instead of the screen door so that it last longer, looks better, & holds up better over time.
A 2 in 1 window/back entry door combo. This allows for fresh air to come in, but the screen is high enough up so that the screen doesn’t rip.
When looking for a front entry way door, you want one with a window, to let natural light in. If the glass is clear or too large, you’ll detract from privacy.
We also do not like the out-dated, half moon doors or solid steel doors for entry ways. You can get a nice, modern glass-style door for around the same price as the others.
Next big help to us will be our new appliances being delivered!! We always consider placing new, stainless steel appliances inside our new rentals. Once the appliances come in, we can install the cabinets, countertops, sink, backsplash, etc!!!
With all of our renovations, we include new appliances, including stainless steel refrigerator, overhead microwave, dishwasher, and stove. Reasons to consider this:
Higher rent received.
Higher quality provided in your rental.
Knowing that your appliances will last years before becoming an issue or needing repair.
