Winter can often result in plumbing issues if frozen pipes aren’t prevented or taken care of properly. If frozen pipes burst, they can become an extremely expensive home disaster that can be preventable.
Many New Jersey homeowners find themselves dealing with the issue of vertical and horizontal cracks in the foundation walls of the house. Sometimes, these cracks and separations are not structurally significant. In other words, they are merely cosmetic and can be remedied with hydro cement. However, a qualified expert should evaluate the existence of any crack in a foundation wall or slab to determine the structural significance, if any.
If you’ve got a mold problem on your hand and this thought enters your head, stop yourself in your tracks. While it’s often said that bleach can get rid of mold, this is a common misconception that can cause more harm than good. Bleach can do a decent job of killing some of the mold in a home on a smooth non porous surface like glass, but what it doesn’t do is kill the roots. Think about what might happen if you were to run a lawnmower over a section of weeds in your yard.
With the pending winter season, New Jersey homeowners have many things to consider when it comes to preparing their homes and repairing existing conditions.
