Don’t Put Off These Home Repairs
January 8, 2018
Here are some home repair challenges that you should act on ASAP:
Electrical systems issues - If you have circuit breakers that frequently trip, power surges or flickering, outdated two-pronged outlets with no ground, or outlets that are loose, you may have an electrical issue that needs to be addressed.
Roofs - A roof with holes or leaks can lead to a whole host of problems – rot, mold, electrical short circuits, and insects. Stains, dampness, or bubbling on the ceiling, shingles that are curling, missing or broken could be indicative of leaks or impending leaks.
Gutters - If your gutters are dented, disconnected, have missing pieces, have had branches or trees fall on them, or there is water pooling around the bottom of the downspouts or in the basement, you could have a problem.
Exterior walls - Exterior paint and caulk between seams protects the home by creating a seal. If the paint is faded, bubbled, peeling, or cracked it is time to repaint. If the caulk has shrunk, it needs to be replaced.
Basements - Take a look at concrete walls for cracks and take a look at the beams and posts for splits, bowing, and rot.
Infestations –Don’t ignore termites, boring beetles, carpenter ants, and even bugs like bees and wasps as these can affect the walls and beams. Got squirrels, other rodents, or bats in the roof? These can chew on electrical wires, exposing live wires to wood and insulation.
