Home Repairs You Cannot Afford to Ignore

Home repairs are an issue that many of us tend to dodge. We understand the necessity of the repairs; however when it comes down to it many of us do not have the time or money to fix everything.

  • Rodent incursions – Rats, mice and other vermin love to chew through insulation and wiring and are suspects in many house fires.
  • Soaring fuel bills – This is more than a pocketbook issue, since poorly functioning systems can cause deadly carbon monoxide buildup in your home.
  • Peeling paint – Paint is like a home’s skin. It’s the first line of defense against incursions by water and pests. Water that seeps into wood can lead to rot.
  • Flickering lights – It might be that the wiring in your house is dysfunctional or you have too many appliances hooked up to a single circuit. Either one can cause a fire.
  • A water leak – Left unchecked, leaks can lead to rot, dry rot, mold and termite infestations. Water can cause roofs to collapse, foundations to buckle and all manner of expensive repairs. Water-related problems can also get your home blackballed by insurance companies worried about mold-related claims.
