Making certain that your foundation is properly sealed and maintained is important for it to be dry and functional for years to come. Moisture can seep through when cracks form in a foundation wall or floor, causing mold to develop and lead to harmful living conditions. For this reason, the proper sealing and repairing of the foundation of your Grandville rental property should be a vital component of your property management plan. A strong, watertight foundation is crucial to the profitable and long life of a single-family rental home.
Fall is the perfect opportunity to seal and repair a foundation in preparation for the upcoming winter weather. Trying to fix the foundation after moisture has already caused damage or halfway through a deep freeze is not a smart idea. Bad conditions can result in sub-par repairs, which would eventually leave your property susceptible to additional damage. Don’t let a small issue turn into a large one!
As structural maintenance is the owner’s obligation, including the foundation of the property, it should not be delegated to your residents. Even great residents might have a tendency to neglect regular maintenance, and if sealing and repairs are not properly performed, it can result in costly repairs down the road.
As long as you know how to seal them properly and remember to regularly do it and at the appropriate time of year, addressing cracks in the foundation all by yourself is an option. In actuality, foundation maintenance is an easy task to miss, especially when you are already busy. Furthermore, spending your time trying to seal the foundation of your rental property if you’ve never done it before might not be the most cost-effective use of your day. Your best choice is still getting a professional to handle it for you, ensuring that the job gets done right and in a timely manner.
