The Importance of Sealing and Repairing Your Hewitt Rental Property Foundations

Hewitt Rental Property with a Beautiful Patio and Strong FoundationEnsuring that your foundation is well sealed and maintained is important to keep it dry and useful for years to come. Moisture can seep through when cracks form in a foundation wall or floor, causing mold to develop and lead to harmful living conditions. Because of this, the proper sealing and repairing of your rental home’s foundation should be a vital part of your Hewitt 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. Attempting to repair a foundation after moisture has already caused damage or during a deep freeze is not a good plan. Poor conditions can result in substandard repairs, which will consequently leave your property vulnerable to more damage. Don’t let a small issue turn into a large one!

Since structural maintenance, including the property’s foundation, is the responsibility of the owner, 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 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. In actuality, however, foundation maintenance is a task easily forgotten, especially if you’re 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.
