Avoid excess moisture
Environmental humidity is a common problem in coastal areas, since the air is loaded with particles of salt water. So the best thing is keep your house ventilated. If you are in it regularly or income your house, just open doors and windows for the air to circulate and thus reduce humidity. If this is not the case, or you simply want to eliminate this problem, it is advisable to install exhaust fans so that the house remains free of moisture. It is a smart investment, since you reduce the frequency of maintenance that the house should receive.
Use protective coating
For all wooden doors and / or wooden windows, it is best to use protective coating to increase the useful life and thus not have to change every item that deteriorates very often. Just like exhaust fans, this is an investment to maintain your home.
Use oil-based paint
Excessive sun can wear down the paint faster, which is why an oil-based paint or a water-based sealer can be a more durable alternative, as they are the main recommendations for use in outdoor spaces.
Use of PVC
If you are just building or remodeling your house, it is recommended to use PVC materials for doors and windows, as these do not rust easily, they resist high outdoor temperatures and hardly need maintenance. This will help you to not have to constantly change items in your house.
