5 Most Expensive Home Repairs

 

1. FOUNDATION

Depending upon the extent of the damage to your foundation, repairs can cost several thousand dollars. Cracks that are a result of settling or extreme weather can usually be filled in and repaired fairly inexpensively. If the foundation is sinking however, this will cost a lot more and can also decrease the value of your house.

2. REPLACING THE ROOF

A simple repair or patch to your roof can usually be done without too much cost. A total replacement is a much more costly situation. Depending upon the type of roof you have and its size, the cost can exceed $50,000. Always try to keep an eye on the condition of your roof and if trouble should appear, call an inspector. A Bergen County home inspector may be able to save you money by recommending a repair before the problem becomes too dire.

3. WATER AND SEWER LINE PROBLEMS

A broken water line repair or replacement is very costly. Most of the time water and sewer lines are buried underground and require excavating. The location of the problem determines the cost involved. A home inspector can save you money by finding the problem and recommending a solution.

4. SIDING REPLACEMENT

If your house is covered with any type of siding, it ages right along with the house. No matter what material your house is covered with, over time it will need repair or replacement. Repairs can be relatively inexpensive, but a total replacement can cost a lot.

5. HEATING OR AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM REPLACEMENT

Getting a new and more efficient heating or air conditioning system will probably save you money in the long run. The replacement costs can however, be quite high.

While being aware that these are among the most costly problems that can arise, always be aware of the condition of your home. Water is a damaging element and can undermine your home. Trees and shrubs can also cause damage, while their roots can affect water lines. Your house’s age is always an overriding factor, and repairs and replacements can be very expensive.
