Get Ready for the Inspector

You can keep putting off those minor maintenance issues for that rainy day, but your procrastination could lead to headaches. Peeling paint, rotting decks, leaky faucet, broken fixtures, squeaky appliances, leaky shower door and poor caulking all pose larger threats if not handled in a timely fashion. Insufficient caulking around windows and doors may cause your utility bill to sky rocket. The leaking shower door may start rotting the floor in your bathroom. We don’t want to be the bad guys, so here’s what you do. Go through your home once a year and mark all the items for your “honey do” list. Make a plan and start fixing the problems before they get out of control. Most tasks can be done in a couple of hours, so why put it off? Believe me, our home inspectors want nothing more than to give you or your clients a clean inspection report! In Seattle we see a lot of old homes that just need a little TLC. Take care of your investment and it will take care of you.
