Pro-active home repair and home maintenance saves money. You should fix small jobs while they’re still small jobs.
This is especially with water leaks. A small amount of water over a long period of time will cause enormous damage.
We’ve literally seen:
- The bottom of the cabinet under the kitchen sink rotted out due to a very slow leak in a drain pipe.
- An entire shower stall needed to be removed due to grout that allowed water through (the 2x4s in the wall behind the tiles had rotted).
- A 10×10 section of a ceiling had to be replaced due to water damage where the water entered at a gap next to an upstairs window.
All of these jobs would have been simple and quick (and cheap) had they been attended to right away.
Make sure you are dealing with a reputable firm that provides high quality services that stands by their work.
Handyman services are not required to be licensed in the state of California, but if they are not, they are limited to jobs whose total value is $500 or less, but for $500 or less, there are a lot of minor maintenance tasks you can do that will save you bundles down the road.
