Have you ever tried to remodel your home with kids around? Not only are there multiple strangers in your house as contractors and construction workers try to make repairs, but it’s hard to go about your day when the kitchen is under construction or loud power drills keep the kids up from their naps. Planned construction is bad enough, but unexpected repairs are even worse. Not only are they an inconvenience, they could also cost you thousands of dollars that you might not have around. Fortunately, it’s possible to follow basic maintenance plans so you won’t have to tap into your children’s’ college fund in order to keep a non-leaking roof over their heads.
Water damage is actually one of the costliest repairs that homeowners face. All it takes is a small leak to build up into a major problem over time. For example, water can ruin drywall, warp your hardwood floors, and even grow leaks in your ceiling. However, one of the biggest problems that come from water is mold. This silent killer can cause allergy and asthma flare-ups and make it incredibly hard to breathe in the place where you expect to feel most comfortable. Plus, you could spend more than $3,000 to get it removed.
I personally have the benefit of living in an apartment building. If I need any repairs done I simply call the maintenance department for my housing management. Unfortunately not everyone has that luxury.
Check out the infographic below to learn more about how much you could be spending on unexpected repairs. There also tips to make sure these problems never happen and your home stays safe. Getting into a small repair routine can prevent a major repair crisis a few months from now.
