It is important to make certain that your foundation is sealed and maintained well to keep it dry and useful for years to come. When cracks start forming in a foundation wall or floor, moisture can pass through, allowing mold to grow and cause unhealthy living conditions. Due to this reason, the correct sealing and repairing of your Dr. Phillips rental home’s foundation have to be a vital component of your property management plan. For a single-family rental home to have a long and profitable life, a strong and watertight foundation is fundamental.
Fall is the best opportunity to seal and repair a foundation as you prepare for the impending winter weather. It is not a good idea to try and repair a foundation after moisture has already caused damage or in the middle of a deep freeze. Poor conditions can cause sub-par repairs, which in turn will leave your property helpless against further damage. Don’t let a small problem turn into a large one!
Because structural maintenance is the responsibility of the owner, this includes the property’s foundation, it should not be assigned to your residents. Even good residents may sometimes neglect regular maintenance, and if sealing and repairs are not performed correctly, it can lead to expensive repairs in the future.
Addressing cracks in the foundation all by yourself is a choice you can make, as long as you know how to seal them properly and remember to do it consistently and at the right time of year. In actuality, foundation maintenance is a task easily forgotten, especially if you’re already busy. Furthermore, spending your time trying to seal the foundation of your rental property having never done it before might not be the most beneficial use of your day. Your best option is still hiring a professional to fix it for you, guaranteeing that the job is done well and in a timely manner.
