Taking care of your home on a regular basis is important in keeping it in the best condition possible for the longest possible time. Not checking for potential problems or fixing them when you first spot them can lead to the damage getting worse and more expensive to fix.

The following are some of the more common home defects that you should keep an eye out for:

  • Poor Ventilation: If you don’t have proper ventilation, it can lead to moisture problems that can cause structural damage.
  • Rotted Wood: Look in areas that are more susceptible to moisture, such as the kitchen and basement for signs of rotting.
  • Improper Drainage: Poor drainage can lead to water leaking into crawl spaces, basements and garages, which can cause mold and serious water damage.
  • Roof Issues: Inspecting your roof on a regular basis is important since it is the first line of protection for your home. A damaged roof that isn’t repaired can lead to serious safety issues as well as more costly repairs down the line.
