When it comes to maintaining your home, it pays to be proactive. Ignoring necessary home repairs can lead to costly bills in the long run. Here are three repair jobs you should check off your to-do list before they turn into expensive construction work.
Repair leaking plumbing. Have you noticed a constant dripping from the pipes under your sink? Or maybe a damp spot in your cabinet, or a discoloration on your ceiling? All of these indicate you have a leak that needs to be fixed as soon as possible. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself with rotting cabinetry, spongy floorboards or cracking plaster that will all need to be replaced. And even worse, you’ll very likely end up with mold growing in the affected area. Repair leaky plumbing and fixtures before they can turn into a disaster.
Repair and repaint your home’s exterior. Getting your home painted is really a home maintenance task – until you put it off for too long and start to see damage on your home’s exterior. As your house gets older and goes through years of changing the weather, the paint will start to flake and chip. Any exposed wood will begin to rot and become attractive to pests. Our team of painting and carpentry professionals can evaluate your home’s exterior condition, make any necessary repairs, and protect your home with a professional, long-lasting exterior paint job.
Replace leaking and bent gutters. Your gutters are one of those things you don’t think about when it’s sunny and don’t want to think about when it’s raining. If you’ve neglected your gutters for too long, you’ll find that the weight of leaves, branches, and water has probably caused gutter damage over time. Bugs have probably taken up residence in the gutter debris, and may even be finding a way into your home. And the constant pooling of rain water will slowly lead to roof damage. Always clean your gutters at least twice a year, and repair any leaking or damaged sections as soon as you notice them.
