Making Your Home Last a Lifetime

At NB Construction, we help homeowners throughout Los Angeles build their dream homes – and we strive to make those homes beautiful, functional, and long-lasting. A home is one of the most important investments you make in life, and if you’re building a new home or doing major remodels to an existing home, it’s important to take precautions early on to ensure that the new home or your new additions last a lifetime. With quality construction and proper repairs, a home can last a century – so here are a few tips for making sure your dream home lasts a lifetime.

Don’t Skimp on Materials

Building or renovating a home is costly, and it’s easy to be tempted to cut corners by buying cheaper materials. But beware: what seems like a quick savings right now can easily turn into years of recurring repairs, eating much more money in the long run. It’s always better to choose higher quality materials when building a home, even if they cost more. The extra cost will more than pay for itself in the years of longevity and avoiding extra repair work.

Perform Regular Home Maintenance

A long-lasting home isn’t just about designs and materials: it takes work to keep a home in good condition. As you live in the home, it’s important to perform regular checks and maintenance to ensure it’s always in great condition. Replace your roof every 20 years, and regularly check your home for signs of dry rot or other issues. With a proactive approach to maintenance, you can stop problems early on and keep your home strong for decades.

Hire a Quality General Contractor

Beyond just materials and designs, it’s absolutely critical to get a high-quality, experienced general contractor that you trust. Your contractor will be doing the majority of the work in building or renovating the home, and you need to be confident that their work is high-quality – after all, you’ll be living with it for decades to come! Only work with a contractor you truly believe in when building or renovating a house.
