Personal Loans – Home Expenditure Loans & The Cost of Delay

Owning a home sometimes feels like owning a never-ending to-do list – fix this, replace that – when does it end? For responsible homeowners, it never does. But overlooking the small stuff can add up to much larger bills later on.

Fix plumbing leaks.
Fixing leaky faucets and other common household plumbing leaks can save the average homeowner about 10 percent on water bills, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Leaks or burst pipes that allow water to find its way into walls, floors and foundations can lead to significant damage, with repair costs reaching thousands of dollars. It’s easy to notice – and fix – a leaky faucet. Finding other kinds of leaks can be a lot more difficult, even with regular inspections.
Clean and seal outdoor decking.
Today’s unpredictable weather, now more than ever, will take its toll on outdoor decking. A few gallons of sealant will set you back $50 or less and a weekend afternoon of effort. Allowing your decking to go untreated for a season or three is likely to result in damaged decking – and damaged ties and joists underneath. Those repairs are a much bigger job, requiring more time and effort, and a lot more money in materials – upto $10,000, in some cases.
Inspect the roof and clear gutters.
Weather, once again, but, specifically, water is the enemy here. Check the areas around roof openings, including chimneys, exhaust flues and skylights, which are the likeliest candidates for leaks. You’ll have to climb up into your attic, too, and peer closely at roof beams and joists near those openings. Dark spots indicate leakage. Leave roof repairs and other jobs to professionals even minor ones.
Gutters clogged with debris (or ice, during winter), can cause water to back up and seep under shingles and siding. Keeping gutters clear is an easy job, and an inexpensive one (under $200) if you rely on a pro to do the dangerous ladder work.
Inspect for termites and other bugs.
Many pest control companies offer home termite inspections for free, but the typical inspection costs $65 to $100, according to costhelper.com. The average homeowner who finds damage caused by termites spends $3,000 on repairs, Termites.com reports. Whole house fumigation could cost more, depending on the size of the home. But infestations caught early can be treated with spot treatments and bait, and the associated damage is likely to be much less severe.
Inspect exterior paint and siding.
Your exterior paint  keeps your house looking great. More importantly, it keeps your house’s worst enemy – yes, water again! – from damaging key structural components beneath. Look for areas of dry, chalky paint and cracked, flaking or peeling paint. Small areas, especially trim around doors and windows, can be sanded and repainted by most homeowners. For bigger jobs, like for an entire home, professional painters might charge up to $5,000, depending on the size of the home. The longer you wait to repaint, the greater the likelihood that water, insects and animals to enter and cause significant damage.
Siding for a new house can easily run between $15,000 to $40,000, including labor
Inspect foundation and concrete slabs for cracks and fissures.
When concrete cures it shrinks slightly and over time can develop slight hairline cracks and fissures. Such cracks are unsightly, of course, and can allow water and insects to infiltrate and lead to more significant damage over time. Most homeowners can repair smaller cracks and fissures with a variety of inexpensive products.
For larger, recurring cracks and bulges, contact a professional, who can identify the problem, suggest appropriate solutions and advise you on associated costs.
If you need to save for long term, some of these expenditures justify a personal loan. USACASHMoney can assist with these issues.
