Windows, Sidewalks, and Doors, OH MY!
This is a sneaky cost most people don’t think about. There are a TON of different kinds of windows. Some shatterproof, some filled with gas, some energy efficient, some glide, and some stationary. Most of the time the windows and door themselves aren’t the problem, it’s what’s around them. Examine around all exterior windows and check for rotting or breaks/cracks in the sealant.
Although the seems like a no brainer, raised edges in the sidewalks and/or driveway are often overlooked. Tripping hazards aren’t anything to take lightly! Consider having these things fixed before move in.
