The rising cost of home insurance in Oklahoma has all of us looking for cheap home insurance or ways to lower your homeowners insurance cost without sacrificing quality coverage.
Did you know that almost all reputable home insurance companies in Oklahoma perform an exterior inspection of your home after you accept a quote or policy and sometimes again at the policy renewal? A poorly maintained home will often result in an Oklahoma homeowner having to accept a home policy or home insurance company that is inferior to others on the market.
When springtime rolls around in Oklahoma almost everyone thinks of cleaning. That’s fine (we probably all need to do a little more of that, after all), but there’s something even more important to keep in mind: home maintenance.
So, when it’s time to set your clocks ahead for daylight-saving time and change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, give your home a checkup, too. Here are some suggestions from the Department of Housing and Urban Development:
Interior and appliances
Roof, siding, windows
Yard and exterior
Remember, winter weather can cause significant damage that is easy to spot, but it often results in wear and tear that homeowners can miss if they aren’t looking closely. It’s well worth it to spend a little time on home maintenance this spring, so that wear and tear doesn’t turn into something more serious.
