Fix Minor House Problems Before They Turn Into Major Ones

These tips can ensure that small issues don’t turn into major headaches.

Too frequently, people spend thousands of dollars on cosmetic improvements to their home but overlook essential structural or system repairs. To prevent future problems, investigate these areas:

Electrical
Improper wiring often causes home fires. Older homes are especially prone to electrical problems.

Signs of a problem:

Roof
Moisture leaks are the biggest concern.

Signs of a problem:

Drainage
Improper drainage causes water-damaged foundations, roofs and more.

Signs of a problem:

Plumbing
Drippy faucets and overflowing toilets are obvious signs of plumbing problems—call a professional if you suspect you have a bigger issue.

Signs of a problem:

Furnace and air conditioner
A typical furnace is used year-round—central air conditioners also use the furnace’s blower—so get the unit inspected annually.

Signs of a problem:

Insulation and ventilation
Good insulation prevents heat loss; proper ventilation directs moisture, odors and fumes outdoors.
