Ensuring that your foundation is well sealed and maintained is important to keep it dry and useful for years to come. When cracks appear in a foundation wall or floor, moisture can seep through, bringing about mold. This will lead to unsafe living conditions. Due to this reason, the correct sealing and repairing of your Marietta rental home’s foundation have to be a vital component of your property management plan. For a single-family rental home to have a long and profitable life, a strong and watertight foundation is fundamental.
Fall is the best opportunity to seal and repair a foundation as you prepare for the impending winter weather. Trying to repair a foundation after moisture already damaged it 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 let a small issue turn into a large one!
Since structural maintenance is the responsibility of the owner, this includes the property’s foundation, it is not a job for your residents to handle. 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.
Fixing cracks in the foundation all by yourself is an option, as long as you know how to properly seal them and remember to do it regularly and at the correct time of year. However, in actuality, foundation maintenance is an easy task to miss, especially when you are already busy. Also, spending your time trying to seal the foundation of your rental property, having never done it before, may not be the most profitable use of your day. Your best option is still getting a professional to fix it for you, ensuring that the job gets done correctly and in a timely manner.
