To keep your foundation dry and functional for years to come, ensuring it is correctly sealed and maintained is essential. When cracks develop in a foundation wall or floor, moisture can come through, which can cause mold to grow and result in unsafe living conditions. Because of this, the proper sealing and repairing of your El Segundo rental home’s foundation should be a vital part of your property management plan. A sturdy, watertight foundation is fundamental for a single-family rental home’s long and profitable life.
Fall is the best time to repair and seal a foundation as you prepare for the impending winter weather. Attempting to fix a foundation after moisture has already dealt damage or in the middle of 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 allow a small issue to become a big one!
Because structural maintenance is the owner’s responsibility, which includes the property’s foundation, it should not be left up to your residents. Even good residents may neglect routine maintenance on occasion, and inadequate sealing and repairs can lead to pricey repairs down the road.
Fixing cracks in the foundation all by yourself is a choice you can make, as long as you know how to seal them correctly and remember to do it consistently and at the right time of year. In reality, foundation maintenance is an easy task to forget, especially on an already full plate. Also, spending your time trying to seal the foundation of your rental property never having 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.
