We’re told to ‘not sweat the small stuff,’ right? But when it comes to home ownership, putting off those seemingly insignificant repairs can cost you big time in the end. If you have a rental property, maintenance may be a headache you don’t want to deal with. That’s where Shield Property Management and Sales can make your life easier. Based on our experience, here are five minor repairs you shouldn’t ignore:

1. Annual Caulking

Every year caulking needs to be reinforced around damp areas such as kitchen and bathroom sinks, tubs, faucets and toilets. When water penetrates the walls or flooring in these regions, it can cause damage to the subordinate floors and even result in the formation of mold—a stubborn and harmful enemy to eradicate.

2. Plumbing Leaks

Plumbing leaks can substantially increase water bills and will certainly damage connecting walls, floors and foundations that can cost thousands of dollars. Water leaks must be resolved aggressively, and our team at Shield will prioritize repairs for you.

3. Pest Inspections

Infestations of termites, roaches, and scorpions can cause chaotic conditions for both your home and your tenants. Having a reputable pest control professional perform routine inspections and address any infestations is essential to prevent damage to the home and dissatisfied renters.

4. Roofing and Gutters

It only takes one good monsoon to damage your roof and clog your gutters. Our team at Shield will keep an eye on your roof and gutter’s condition, and we’ll dispatch the appropriate repair persons to keep these essentials in premium condition.

5. Painting Maintenance

Maintain curb appeal and prevent water and pest damage by keeping the exterior of your home looking sharp. Chipped paint can distract from the beauty of your property and can also incur fines if you have an HOA to answer to. Let our pros at Shield keep a close eye on your home. We’ll ensure it looks great year round.
