To keep your foundation dry and functional for years to come, you need to ensure that it is correctly sealed and maintained. When cracks develop in a foundation wall or floor, moisture could seep through, causing mold to grow and result in unhealthy living conditions. Because of this, the proper sealing and repairing of your Melbourne Beach rental home’s foundation should be a vital part of your property management plan. A sturdy, watertight foundation is fundamental for a single-family rental home’s long and profitable life.
Fall is the best time to repair and seal a foundation since this is best done as you prepare for the impending winter weather. Attempting to repair a foundation after moisture has already caused damage or during a deep freeze is not a good plan. Poor conditions might result in sub-par repairs, which in turn make your property vulnerable to more 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 forget routine maintenance on occasion, and if they neglect sealing and repairs, or not do them correctly, it can lead to greater expense down the road.
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. In reality, however, foundation maintenance is a task easily overlooked, especially if you already have a full plate. Also, spending your time attempting to seal the foundation of your rental property, especially if it’s your first time, might not be the most profitable 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.
