From time to time we may feel a tinge in our back, or hear a rattle in our car, or experience a similar potential warning signal.  The first thought is to be optimistic and hope that it goes away. Sometimes it does. Other times it does not, and the longer it takes to address the issue the greater the damage. Below are the top 5 home issues that should be repaired immediately.

Roofing problems

A leaky roof can cause all sorts of damage to your home, and it does not mean that your entire roof needs to be replaced. If you notice water penetration, loose shingles, discolored spots or other signs of leakage then call the professionals for an evaluation.

Electrical issues

If lights and switches are not working properly or functioning consistently, this may indicate that your wiring was not correct. Ignoring this issue can lead to a house fire.

Broken Sump Pump


Inspect your sump pump regularly to ensure it is in good working order. A broken sump pump can result in a flooded basement, water damage, mold remediation and an expensive problem.

Drafty Windows And Doors

Windows and doors that leak outside air is like have a big hole in your wallet, especially when multiple windows and doors are drafty. Replacing drafting doors and windows will ultimately save you money.

Poor Insulation

Insulation helps your home to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  Without insulation, half of the energy used to regulate your home’s temperature is lost. Upgraded insulation in your home will add to its comfort level while allowing you to save on energy bills.
