3 Ways That Building A New Home Can Protect Your Family

If you are currently debating between building a new home and buying a used one, you could be looking at a lot of things. You might be thinking about size, price, financing and more, but one thing that you might not be thinking about is how buying a new home can actually help you protect your family. These are a few ways that you can keep your family safer and better cared for by opting for a new home construction rather than buying an older home.

1. Improved Indoor Air Quality

First of all, you should think about the way that the air can be better and safer for your family in a new home. Older homes can include asbestos and lead paint. The ducts and other components of the HVAC system could be filled with mildew, mold and all sorts of allergens. Although it's possible to get rid of all of these things, it can be costly and time consuming. By building a brand new home, however, you will be able to provide your family with much better indoor air quality.

2. Improved Safety

Although a full home inspection by a qualified inspector can help clue you in to potential problems, you should think about how a newer home will be much safer for your family. The wiring and HVAC system will be brand new, which means that there is less of a chance of an electrical problem, such as an electrical fire. You'll have a brand new garage door in place, which means that it will contain all of today's best safety features, such as automatically reopening if a child runs underneath. All of the components in your new home will be completely up to date with today's safety regulations and standards, which can provide you with peace of mind and can help keep your family safe.

3. Warranties

The last thing that you family needs to do is go without something essential, such as heat during the winter or a refrigerator that doesn't work. Unfortunately, these little things can pop up when you least expect them and can leave your family in need. Luckily, the good thing about a new home construction is that all of your stuff will be under warranty, so you can have it repaired or replaced right away.

As you can see, building a brand new home can help you take good care of your family in more ways than one. If you are still trying to decide between a new or used home, consider these benefits of having your family's new house built from the ground up.

About Me

Basic Repairs for Moms

Hi, my name is Annie Sullivan. I'm a stay-at-home mom with four kids between the ages of 1 and 7. Two of them are twins: they're 3. Let me tell you--you learn a lot as a mom that you would never expect! Not only am I chef, chauffeur, teacher, and caretaker, but I also have become an amateur repair man, plumber, and construction worker. I do more heavy lifting and repair work than I ever imagined. Do you know how many Barbies can fit down a toilet drain? It's quite surprising. Do you know how to get them out? I do. I've learned a lot of this just through trial and error--and the internet. I also had my husband teach me some tricks, since I usually can't wait until he gets home to solve the problem. Hopefully you other moms out there can learn something from this site!
