Making certain that your foundation is correctly sealed and maintained is important for it to be dry and functional for many years. 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 Fortuna rental home’s foundation have to be a vital component of your property management plan. A strong, watertight foundation is crucial to the long and profitable life of a single-family rental home.
Fall is the best time to repair and seal a foundation as you get ready for the coming winter weather. Attempting to fix a foundation after moisture has already dealt damage or in the middle of a deep freeze is not a good plan. Poor conditions can cause sub-par repairs, which in turn will leave your property helpless against further damage. Don’t allow a small issue to become a big 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 might occasionally forget to perform regular maintenance, and if sealing and repairs are not done correctly, it could lead to pricey repairs in the future.
Fixing cracks in the foundation all by yourself is a choice you can make, as long as you know how to seal them correctly and remember to do it consistently and at the right time of year. However, 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, especially if you’ve never done it before, might not be the most cost-effective use of your day. Your best option is still bringing in an expert to take care of it for you. This ensures that the job is done correctly and in a timely manner.
