The spring rains always bring more calls into Steller Construction because of moisture problems in older homes. It’s common for windows to leak leading to rotten framing which in turn can cause mold and insects to find your home desirable.
Recently, we were called out to a home where the carpet was pulling away from the trim in a homeowner’s great room. We discovered that years of the windows leaking had led to a structurally unstable wall of windows holding up the back side of the house. If this problem had continued to grow, there would have been more damage to the home and more expenses to fix it. Since we already had the wall opened up to fix the framing, the homeowner used the opportunity to make some other updates to the room.
Bathrooms are also another common area for moisture damage. Leaky pipes, faucets and toilets not only waste water (which is a whole other problem), but they can also cause damage to your home’s structural integrity.
Homeowners are sometimes afraid about the “unknowns” behind their walls, so they might be hesitant to take on a home remodeling project. At Steller Construction, we see renovations as not only an investment into your home but also a necessity. That bathroom remodel, that you have been putting off because of your fears, may actually save you money in the long run, as we can fix any moisture problems before they get worse. Mold is not only bad for your home, but as researchers have found it’s also bad for you and your family’s health.
Home maintenance is an important part of owning a home. The moment you notice a leak, it should be dealt with in a timely manner before the problem escalates. Fixing it promptly will keep your home in better shape for the long haul.
