Making certain that your foundation is sealed and maintained well is important for it to be dry and functional for numerous years. Moisture can seep through when cracks appear in a foundation wall or floor, causing mold to develop and result in harmful living conditions. For this reason, the correct sealing and repairing of the foundation of your Kirkland rental property need to be a vital part of your property management plan. A strong, watertight foundation is crucial to the beneficial and long life of a single-family rental home.
Fall is the best opportunity to repair and seal a foundation as you set up for the impending winter weather. Attempting to repair a foundation after moisture has already dealt damage or during a deep freeze is not a good plan. Poor conditions can lead to poor repairs, which will consequently leave your property defenseless against further damage. Don’t allow a small problem to develop into a big one!
As structural maintenance is the responsibility of the owner, including the property’s foundation, it is not a job for your residents to take care of. Even good residents can sometimes forget to perform regular maintenance, and if sealing and repairs are not executed properly, it could lead to expensive repairs in the future.
Taking care of cracks in the foundation all by yourself is an option, as long as you know how to seal them properly and remember to perform it regularly and at the right time of year. In reality, foundation maintenance is a task easily missed, especially if you’re already busy. Moreover, spending your time trying to seal the foundation of your rental property having never done it before might not be the best use of your day. Your best option is still employing a professional to do it for you, guaranteeing that the job is done well and in a timely manner.
