McKinnis: Interior and Exterior Home Services
Home Inspection Services
Independent companies throughout Nebraska offer home inspection services. A home inspection is a report that will look at every facet of your home and allows you to proactively address any concerns with the “to-do” list in hand. Addressing the concerns brought forth, you increase your home offers, attract more buyers, lower the chance of the deal falling through, better protect yourself. Not to mention, it feels good knowing you are taking care of the future owners as well! All companies follow a basic format and provide detailed knowledge of the following (applicable) areas:
- Exterior Home
- Doors & Windows
- Attic Space
- Interior Common Rooms
- Fireplace / Wood Stoves
- Laundry Rooms
- Air Conditioning & Heating
Once the home inspection report is compiled, you will know what needs to be addressed before beginning the selling process. Thus, you can contact all the necessary local contractors and get your home in prime selling shape. Home inspection reports range from $300 to $800 on average (dependent upon home and lot size, location, etc.). However, an inspection report can save you time and money by the time your home is sold.
McKinnis Can Help
Whether or not you have decided to obtain a home inspection, McKinnis can help. From the list above, we can help you with the following:
McKinnis can repair or replace your siding, shutters, gutters, decorative metals, etc. We also offer window replacement and can restore or replace decks and handrails. Maintenance to the exterior components makes sure you know everything is functioning properly. If you decide on new siding and/or windows, you are looking at an ROI of 65 to 85 percent! Repairing or replacing any of the exterior components is highly beneficial in resale value.
Doors & Windows
McKinnis offers window and door replacement on all parts of your home. We can help you with your product exploration and needs, from garage doors to sliding glass doors. If there are basic maintenance items, such as fixing the door threshold, popping the trim back into place, or clean caulking the windows, McKinnis can help.
McKinnis can repair or replace any roof. According to the National Association of Realtors, a new roof can help you regain approximately 68 percent of the resale value. Roofing repairs, on average, cost $500 to $600, whereas roof replacements cost upwards of $10,000 or more. Our Omaha roof specialists follow NRCA guidance by checking the following components:
- plumbing pipes
- roof vents
Cleaning of debris, securing of shingles, and sealing old caulk joints on your roof is deemed a homeowner’s responsibility and prolongs the life of your roof. These things are commonly discovered and recommended to repair in home inspections.
Inspection of the attic is imperative to know the health of your roof. In the attic, one can inspect the underside of the roof deck, assess ventilation, check for obstructions at openings and inspect for signs of water intrusion or cracks. This allows us to ensure your home is up to code (per city).
McKinnis prides itself in details. We can offer new flashings, bladders “transitions that meet at the chimney” and dead valleys. Leaks can come into these details, and they are commonly blamed on the roof. They are functional and can also be beautiful and provide extra accent to your home.
