Do you live in a home that needs constant repairs? Does your dream cottage, with roses growing up the wall, require a lot of upkeep? In a case like this, it is wise to have a handy man you trust and plumbing specialists like Roto-Rooter in your speed dial. Owning a beautiful old home in an established neighborhood with mature trees, fully-grown shrubbery, and perennial bushes cannot be beat for the sheer beauty of the scenery, which you enjoy as you drive to and from your home, stroll through the neighborhood, or sit on your porch. Despite all the benefits, these places have their fair share of problems.
Tree Roots and Waterlines
With mature trees, there are often problems with their roots growing into your water and sewer pipes. If you are experiencing this, you need a professional to come and handle it for you. You want someone who can cut back the roots, without compromising the tree, and fix the damaged pipes.
Old Fixtures and Replacement
An old house is likely to have old fixtures and fittings. Problems and issues, like leaks and worn out parts, in older faucets are plentiful and almost expected. While some problems are easy to fix, older parts needing replacement may be hard to locate for certain fixtures. If this is the case, there are many faucet manufacturers that make new products that look just like the old ones you have. It may cost you less in the long run to find some you like and switch out the old ones.
Drippy and Leaky Faucets
Leaky faucets, if left unattended, can add more expense to water bills, while also ruining the inside of fixtures through erosion. In addition, the leaks from untreated water can stain your sinks and tub, especially if the water has iron or lime in it. These marks and stains are difficult to remove. The leaking fixtures just get worse over time. You keep trying to turn them tighter and tighter, but eventually this won’t stop the flow. If you don’t know how to fix or replace your faucet, you can call us at Roto-Rooter and we would be happy to come out and do the job for you.
While keeping up with the maintenance of an older home is not for the faint of heart, it is very rewarding. Not only do you get to live in a beautiful place, it is also a wise investment for the future. Whether you choose to stay forever, or sell it and move on in a few years, you will be adding value to one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Attractive, well-maintained homes with functioning home plumbing systems are always a premium in the housing market.
