Own A Home? Don’t Neglect These 4 Home Repairs …
Owning a home is a great investment — but with home ownership comes the need for maintenance. Regular home repair is something every homeowner should invest in.
It’s important to recognize problems with the house before they evolve into something much more severe and expensive.
So, if you own a home, it’s important to plan ahead for needed upgrades and projects around the house. Recognizing any issues with you home will help you catch the damage early on and hopefully cut down on the cost of repair.
Here are 4 home repairs you should never postpone:
Foundation repairs/damage: Your home’s foundation is arguably the most important aspect of your home. It’s what keeps the property’s structural integrity in place and intact, and if there is a problem with the foundation, this will make the house unsafe to live in and unable to withstand an earthquake.
Luckily, when foundation issues are caught early, repairs can be extremely manageable. For example, foundation upgrades, like earthquake retrofits, will run between $3,000 to $7,000. While other foundation repairs can range anywhere from $4,000 to $100,000, depending on the severity of the situation and the scale of the job.
It’s important to keep an eye out for things that can damage the foundation such as clogged gutters and water pooling around the property. And if you’ve noticed any foundation issues around your home such as large cracks in the walls or ceilings, sloping or sagging floors, or doors and windows that seem misaligned or that stick, contact a foundation repair company right away to inspect the property.
Roof repairs/damage: Your roof is the most important barrier from keeping things indoors versus outdoors. It’s essential to keep your roof in excellent shape. Most roof repair runs between $3,000 to $12,000. Catching repairs early on can save you a lot of headache and cut down on the costs. You need to keep in mind that when repairing the roof or removing the roof, there’s also the added cost of removing the current materials.
Siding repairs/damage: Another important area of your home is the siding of the property. Things like water, wind or insects can penetrate the material and cause damage. Luckily, if you stay on top of the maintenance, spot repairs are very inexpensive. On the other hand, the average siding installation project can run between $5,500 and $15,000, depending on the materials used.
HVAC repair/replacement: Keeping your home at the right temperature is not only what’s most comfortable, it’s what keeps you safe. If the HVAC system gets neglected or completely goes from age, replacing the whole system can cost between $4,000 and $12,000. One way to keep your HVAC system in great shape, prolonging its lifespan, is to have yearly inspections and maintenance such as changing out the filters and identifying potential problems early on.
