The trouble with these things is that you don’t always notice it. And by the time it’s evident, the damage is already done. Quite literally, the writing is on the wall. Or on the floor, as the case may be. But to be honest, surely that can be held to be a tepid excuse. It really does not take much to take care of your home. Try this out the next time you have your realtor over to show some potential buyers your property. The realtor does her best, so we’ve all thought, to put on quite a show, but just see how quickly the guests do a polite U-turn down your garden path, which, incidentally, also has some cracks showing through it.
You didn’t notice, but they did. It’s under the weeds, you see. You didn’t grasp the seriousness of this perhaps, but perhaps too, these young shoppers had done their homework and put two and two together where brass tacks are concerned. A property price was wiped under their nose and they knew full well that that was an insult to their research and perhaps even to the neglected house’s potential true value. It’s bound to happen with old houses. The cracks will eventually begin to show. And just a few maintenance checks a year is all you need to see to it that the cracked foundation repair team can get straight down to work and seal over those emerging cracks.
The work they do these days is a lot easier and cost-effective for you. They are using new environmentally friendly sealants which are stronger and produce longer lasting results. Added to this will be the aesthetic appeal and the improved property value. What a thoroughly good paint job will also produce.
