When it comes to home repairs, most homeowners have a long-winded list of what they’d like to spend their money on. Some would like to not spend any of it on home repairs!

The value of your home or the other things you’d like to spend your money on, continuing to do home repairs is extremely valuable to you and any others living in your house. For many, their home is their biggest investment. Keeping up with the necessary maintenance is vital.

Some repairs may require a team, while others are easy to DIY, but either way, doing some regular home maintenance is extremely beneficial to you. Plus, it can even save you money in the long run! According to Your Money: The Missing Manual, for every dollar you spend on preventative maintenance around the home, you save approximately $100 in future repairs.

Depending on the type of home maintenance project, the benefits to home maintenance can include:

Which Home Repairs Have the Most Value?

While many will cite kitchens, bathrooms, or replacing the roof, (which, yes, all hold their value fairly well) none of these home improvements truly matter if the structural integrity of your home is not sound.

All houses shift and settle as they age. Too much movement, however, can lead to damage that’s permanent and ongoing unless the foundation is stabilized, such as settling, buckling, bowing, cracking or leaning walls, sagging floor joists, sticky doors and windows, and leaks or flooding.

When was the last time you checked your foundation?

Often overlooked, your foundation is critically important to not only the integrity of your home but also, it’s value. Fixing foundation damage or settlement ensures your home is free of worry. It also means that you have the ability to add on a deck or patio or finish the basement without a nasty surprise popping up later.

Procrastinating on foundation repairs will cause you bigger trouble in the long run—big, as inexpensive. You may be wondering if the cost of foundation repairs is worth it, but if you don’t treat foundation damage early on, you may have to deal with:

These can all add up to be much more costly than the initial foundation repair.
