Prevention, prevention, prevention. Pick a day of the month, like the first Saturday, and, with a caulking gun in your hand, take a slow walk around your home. You will see trouble spots early on, before they become major issues. Keeping your house caulked (sealed) is usually the most important task that any home owner can do on their own save money on home repairs.
Nota Bene: You are NOT ALWAYS saving money if you chose the lowest priced contractor to do work on your home. If the work is done poorly or improperly or the materials are inferior, then the problem will return in all likelihood. Then you will have to hire someone like us to fix it right.
Doing work this way will cost you the MOST MONEY because you will have to pay for the repair TO BE DONE TWICE – BECAUSE IT WASN’T DONE RIGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE.
