Insulate Your Pleasanton Rental Home This Fall

Eco-Friendly Insulation in a Pleasanton Rental HomeAs the weather cools and the leaves begin turning, there are specific repairs and maintenance tasks that should be performed on your Pleasanton rental properties before winter. Part of preparing for the coming cold weather is making certain that your rental home is properly insulated. Insulation and weather stripping add value and efficiency to a rental home, protecting it and its residents from extreme temperatures and high energy costs. A properly insulated rental home will be able to keep residents warm and happy all winter long.

As with other maintenance and repair items related to the structure of a rental home, insulation and weather stripping shouldn’t be left to the residents to set up, maintain, or replace. There is no guarantee that residents would do a good job. Certain kinds of insulation can be dangerous if not handled properly.

As the owner, you can try to insulate your rental property yourself. There are several different methods that would give good results. Fiberglass insulation is offered in rolls and batts, ready to be installed in the attic and in walls. Other types of insulation include blown-in insulation, a kind of loose fill that is blown into attics or walls. There is expanding foam insulation as well, which sprays on a thin foam that then expands to fill a gap or space around pipes, windows and doors, and other spots. And lastly, weather stripping is installed around doors and windows to block drafts. Every type is intended for use in different parts of the home and requires some specialized equipment and safety gear to install.

Whether insulating your rental homes for the first time or changing old or worn insulation, insulation is something that should be an element of your property management plan. Existing insulation and weather stripping need to be checked each year for signs of deterioration, and holes or gaps have to be filled before cold weather comes. Waiting until your Pleasanton residents complain or until the issue becomes too big to put off is not a smart idea.
