Even small incidents can result in costly repairs, so it’s best that homeowners take the initiative to obtain the coverage they need, especially before the severe winter weather strikes!
Troy, Michigan (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
The team at Oakland Companies knows that staying on top of home repairs can require more time and effort than many Michigan homeowners have to spare. Not only that, but updating a home can be expensive, depending on the nature of the work. However, many local homeowners take pride in the houses they have built and sustained over the years, which is why they protect their dwellings with Michigan home insurance.
In order to keep some Michigan communities looking their best, federal funds have been designated to knock down a large number of vacant homes that are in poor repair. Over the past year, the city of Flint has demolished a record 775 homes that were uninhabited and in poor condition in order to improve the overall appearance of the community.
The following tips may help homeowners beautify their homes quickly and on a small budget:
- It’s easy to keep a yard looking colorful and well-cared for during the spring and summer when flowers are in bloom, but homeowners and keep their yards visually appealing all year-round by planting evergreens and plants that will have foliage during the fall months.
- A home can appear much more “put-together” from the outside when it boasts a fenced-in yard. Fences don’t have to be luxurious to look great and installing them can be a fairly quick do-it-yourself project for some homeowners.
- Many people like to keep big trees away from their homes so that they do not fall into the house during a strong storm, resulting in Michigan home insurance claims. These individuals can use smaller focal points for their yard instead, such as a birdfeeder.
The local experts at Oakland Companies know that Michigan residents take pride in their home and their community, which is why homeowners contact the Michigan insurance company in order to obtain protection for the homes that they have put much money and effort into maintaining. Even small incidents can result in costly repairs, so it’s best that homeowners take the initiative to obtain the coverage they need, especially before the severe winter weather strikes!
