The Most Overlooked Home Repairs

Home repairs are some of the most dreaded aspects of everyday life for homeowners. We tend to think of our homes as indestructible structures that protects our families. Then there is water damage or a hole in the roof, it’s a nerve-racking experience. Regularly inspecting your home for issues and repairing problems as soon as possible can help prevent further damage. 

Handymen can help by offering a wide range of services to meet your needs and repair problems in your home. A handyman can repair those problems typically cheaper than hiring individual specialists for each issue.

Why Home Repairs and Maintenance Matters

Home repairs can be costly, especially if they haven’t been noticed sooner. Regular home maintenance is considered the best way to prevent costly damages. This can be simple visual checks whenever you’re outside or a seasonal “inspection” where you go into more detail.

  • Saves Money and Expenses: Inspecting gutters, pipes, doors, windows, and AC filters, can help you save money and extend life.
  • Increased Home Value: Maintaining the upkeep of your home will also improve your home’s property value. When you have regular inspections for your home, it can make the process easier each time. 
  • Improves Quality of Life: It can break up and separate tasks. Help organize your finances, and improve the atmosphere of your home by preventing the onset of mold and pests. 

Some Commonly Missed Home Repair Tasks That Need Attention

Here are some of the most commonly missed home repair tasks that may need your attention: 

  • Gutter Cleaning: Clogged gutters can cause roof leaks and even damage your foundation. Make sure to clean your gutters during the spring and fall, about twice a year. Remove debris like leaves, dirt allowing them to flow rain water away from your home and prevent leaks. 
  • Sealing Windows and Doors: If there are air gaps your home has poor insulation. This can contribute to higher energy bills. 
  • Attic and Basement Inspection: Attics and basements are often neglected because they are out of sight and out of mind but are an important part of your home space. These areas are often the most prone to pests, mold growth, and water damage, so make sure to have periodic inspections in these areas and address any issues that are present. 
  • Drain Maintenance: Drains in your home, such as those found in sinks and showers, can become clogged with hair, grease, and other debris, leading to backups. While at-home methods can work, having a professional clean out your pipes and drains to prevent these buildups. 
  • HVAC Maintenance: HVAC maintenance is considered one of the most costly expenses there is, and when it breaks down, it can cost thousands in repairs. Maintaining this system through regular HVAC checkups, changing air filters, and cleaning air vents can help prevent issues later on and preserve it for when you need it most. 
  • Roof Shingle Repairs: Even a single missing shingle can eventually lead to some form of water damage to your home and affect the efficiency of your utilities. Your roof is the first line of defense in severe weather situations, and getting roof repairs can help save money and protect your home from damage.
