9 Expensive Home Repairs You Can Avoid with a Little Maintenance


2. How to Avoid Costly Foundation Repairs

Paying restoration services to repair the foundation of your home is a costly business. The average homeowner will expect to pay $7,641 for repairs – a sum we are sure you don’t want to spend. But with some maintenance, you can save lots.

Water damage is the most potent cause, and you must make sure to clear your gutters regularly and your weeping tile (an underground pipe that drains waters away from your house). Signs of water damage include cracks in your basement crawlspace walls, damp areas, the strong musty odor of mold and peeling drywall.
