Focus on roof, windows, attic, and foundation

The attic area needs to be in good shape. It is one of the most neglected and most overlooked parts of the home. Just like the roof, the attic areas should be inspected and repaired of any defects. Problems with the roofing structure may affect the attic and vice versa. Ventilation in attic area is crucial to prevent problem of moisture damage.
Windows will become defective or lose their insulation. In case you do not have double-glazing and other energy efficiency systems installed in your windows and doors, you may want to consider that.
The foundation is another important part of a home. The strength of foundation determines the structural integrity of a house.
