Making certain that your foundation is correctly sealed and maintained is important for it to be dry and functional for many years. When cracks appear in a foundation wall or floor, moisture can seep through, bringing about mold and lead to unsafe living conditions. Due to this reason, the proper sealing and repairing of your Southwest Waterfront rental home’s foundation need to be a vital element of your property management plan. A strong, watertight foundation is fundamental to the long and profitable life of a single-family rental home.
As you prepare for the approaching winter weather, fall is the perfect time to seal and repair a foundation. Trying to repair a foundation after moisture already damaged it or in the middle of a deep freeze is not a good plan. Bad conditions can lead to substandard repairs, which consequently will make your property susceptible to more damage. Don’t let a little issue turn into a big one!
Since structural maintenance, including the property’s foundation, is the responsibility of the owner, it is not should not be assigned to your residents. Even good residents may forget routine maintenance on occasion, and sealing and repairs can eventually lead to expensive repairs if they are not well done.
Working on cracks in the foundation all by yourself is an option, as long as you know how to seal them properly and remember to do it consistently and at the right time of year. In reality, foundation maintenance is a task that is easily overlooked, particularly if you already have a full plate. Moreover, spending your time attempting to sell your rental property’s foundation if you’ve never done it before might not be the most profitable use of your day. Your best route is still hiring an expert to take care of it for you, guaranteeing that the task is done correctly and in a timely manner.
