4 Things to Look for Before Buying a House

Post by : dminCMC


Buying a home is no easy feat. It takes years of planning and saving up before coming close to your perfect home. Often, there’s no such thing as a dream home. Every property requires some adjustment, repair, or maintenance work; it’s only a question of which repairs are worth it.

Before you seal the deal on that oh-so-perfect looking house that you’ve always dreamt of living in, check for the following issues. Have the extent of each problem evaluated, the cost of repairs, and whether the repairs will end up paying off or costing you more.

We offer masonry services in Bloomfield, Burlington, Farmington, or Canton and to other areas in central Connecticut. We’d recommend checking your property for:

1. Cracks in the concrete

If you notice large cracks in the concrete, whether they’re on the curb, the property, walls, or other areas in or around the house, have it inspected. Don’t work with an inspector who also offers repairs; that’s work best left to masonry experts like us. However, it might be worth your while to find out if a repair is going to benefit you or if you should walk away from the deal. Our masonry services cover extensive and complex renovations, so there’s no need to worry right away.

2. Old or dilapidated looking concrete

Concrete is built to last. It should last for decades—but it can end up looking worn and damaged with wear. If the concrete surfaces on your property look old, there are likely other signs of damage, such as cracks and fissures and water damage. Look around the property further and reach out to our contractors regarding repair work on the concrete.

3. Uneven floors

This is a warning sign of issues in the foundation. If floors look rough, wobbly, or misbalanced, the foundation is likely to be damaged, and that could set you back financially and put your safety at risk.

4. Opportunity for investment

In addition to looking for negatives and risky factors, it’s also essential to look at the potential and positives of the property. If you see there’s room to remodel and renovate aspects of the house to your liking and to boost property value, go for it. We offer remodeling and repair services that can transform the exteriors and interiors of your home. From patio installations to walkways that increase curb appeal, we do it all.  Contact us today to learn more about our residential masonry services.

Buying property can be exhaustive, but it’s not easy to change your mind once the decision has been made. Careful planning, evaluation, and a trusted contractor by your side are all important to have. Consider all of the above carefully, because these can easily become issues that are hard to bounce back from.
