What home maintenance issues have you noticed during lockdown?

In the current climate, many of us are spending more time in the home. Whether it’s due to health concerns, working from home or simply because there are just less reasons to go out, most people are having a lot more time around the house.

As a consequence, you might find yourself noticing maintenance issues that have previously slipped your attention, and then wonder what to do about these.

Likewise, this could be the perfect opportunity to do a comprehensive health check on your home and attend to problems before any further deterioration occurs, which could end up costing you even more in repairs.

Are there cracks appearing in the walls and are these getting bigger? Do you have floors that are starting to sink or cracking?  Are there any issues with closing the windows or doors? These are just some of the signs that the foundations of the house need attention. You should also look outside for things like a shifting veranda or excessive moisture in the soil, perhaps pooling after rainfall.

Once you identify the signs, the question becomes what to do about it. Ignoring an issue with the foundations will only make things worse, leading to a much bigger repair bill later on. Underpinning might be the solution for your home.
