Ensuring that your foundation is well-sealed and maintained is critical to it remaining dry and operational for a long time. When cracks show in a foundation wall or floor, moisture can filter through, inviting mold to spread and elicit noxious living conditions. In this regard, the appropriate sealing and repairing of your Orem rental home’s foundation should be a key feature of your property management plan. A rock-solid, watertight foundation is vital to the life of a single-family rental home.
Fall is the best time to seal and repair a foundation as you make ready for the impending winter weather. Making an effort to repair a foundation after moisture has given rise to damage or in the middle of a deep freeze is not a good idea. Awful weather conditions may bring about substandard repairs, which in turn will leave your property susceptible to greater damage. Don’t let a petty problem grow into a massive one!
On account that structural maintenance is the owner’s job, this covers the property’s foundation, and this is not a job to assign to your tenants. Even good tenants may ignore continual maintenance once in a while, and if sealing and repairs are not done well, they can elicit expensive repairs at another time.
Fixing cracks in the foundation yourself is another option if you know how to correctly seal them and if you check the foundation for cracks regularly. However, foundation maintenance is an easy assignment to forget, especially when you have already so much to do. Also, spending your time trying to seal the foundation of your rental property if you’ve never done it before may not be the most financially advantageous use of your day. You could also choose to enlist a professional to see to it for you, ensuring that the job is done in an exact manner and at the appropriate time.
