Whether you’re buying your first home or you’re an experienced homeowner, you may run into certain issues. The team at Aloha Construction has seen almost everything, and here, they’re sharing some of the most common mistakes home buyers and owners make, as well as some tips on avoiding them.
Many homeowners make the mistake of choosing the wrong home upgrades. While adding a sunroom or a luxurious master bathroom is a great way to make the home more enjoyable, it’s not always the best way to increase its value. If you want to boost your home’s resale value and curb appeal, upgrading the roof and siding is a great way to do it, and the experts at Aloha Construction can help.
Delaying The Property Inspection
Our team offers no-cost property inspections as well. It’s important to get a home inspection at least once yearly, particularly after a severe storm. The team will rigorously inspect your siding, roofing, and shingles, and if there are issues, they’ll help with the insurance claims process.
Another major issue we see here at Aloha Construction is the neglect of homes’ downspouts and gutters. We suggest inspecting them each season, being sure to look for warning signs such as leaking and sagging. It’s also important to ensure that the downspouts point away from the home, to prevent water from pooling around the foundation.
Economizing on Repairs
Of all the mistakes on this list, this one is perhaps the most serious. While a handy homeowner can easily perform some tasks, in other cases, it’s best to leave the work to the pros. Choosing to DIY important repairs or working with unlicensed, unqualified contractors may save a few dollars, but the long-term costs will be significant. Aloha Construction is one of the top contractors in Illinois, and we have the BBB Torch Award to prove it. Call us today to get the job done right and at a fair price.
