When it comes to property damage, there is the kind that happens all of a sudden and the kind that slowly happens over time. With everyone being so busy nowadays it is understandable that people might put off fixing small issues. Unfortunately, these small issues can cause even larger ones down the road. Here are some common issues and ways to resolve them before they become a larger problem.
Cracked and Worn Out Floors
Without the proper care, it is likely that a property’s floors will become cracked and worn out. Unfortunately, people’s first instinct is to use harsh chemicals to fix the problem. When people do this, the ground below tends to absorb the chemicals and causes an environmental hazard. Instead, keep your floors protected with one of the following options:
- Epoxy Floor Coatings
- Joint Fillers-Repair Mortars
- High Performance Urethane Topcoat
- Same-Day Coating Systems
New England reaches extremely low temperatures during the brisk winters. While most people just reach for the thermostat, often the case is that the heat from their property is escaping somehow. To prevent this from happening, invest in a better insulation system. EIFS, Exterior Insulation and Finish System, has the classic look of stucco, but has better insulation. The system includes an insulation board, base coat and finish coat. In addition to reducing heat loss, it improves air quality and curtails the environmental impact of a structure.
Mold is not just an issue inside properties, it can also affect the exterior of your property. It can attack a building and cause decay and health hazards. To prevent either of these issues from arising, it is best to have professionals powerwash your property. Other solutions include protecting walls and surfaces with moisture and impact resistant products such as a FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic Panel), Bollard Covers or Kourgard. Whatever you do, just make sure that you are keeping an eye out for mold growing in both damp and dry areas.
As discussed earlier, these issues are often caught when it is too late. Perform regular checks on these areas of your property to prevent them from getting out of hand. If you have any questions, contact re:fab for more information.
