Here’s How to Avoid Expensive Home Repairs

It’s always better to practice preventive maintenance rather than reactive maintenance. Spotting problems early and then fixing them can save you a lot of money and help ensure that the parts of your house last as long as possible.

Set a Maintenance Calendar

The first thing you need to do is to take advantage of technology. Get a calendar app, and use it to plot periodic inspections and maintenance activities ahead of time. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed if you approach the task of maintaining your home as one single monumental project. Break it down into specifics, and schedule them for different days. You should also maintain a list of contractors or companies to call for maintenance work.

Schedule Regular Inspections

Regular inspections can prevent a lot of problems. A pro can spot signs of wear and tear, and perform the necessary repairs and touch-ups to prevent problems in the future. Make sure to hire pros to check your roof, pipes, chimney and water heater regularly. Water damage is a big deal, and leaks can cause significant and costly damage to your home. So, it’s important to spot leaks before they grow.

Perform Preventive Maintenance

You must also perform preventive maintenance and keep your home running smoothly. These things take minimal time, but they provide tremendous benefits. Check your HVAC filters, and replace them regularly. Set a calendar alert for this so you don’t forget. You should also keep your gutters clean. We recommend hiring a pro for the best results. You should also set an alarm on your calendar to flip your circuit breakers off and on once a year. This extends the life of the device.
