One of the main reasons why a homeowner might put off home repairs is the expense. Statistics have shown that approximately 64% of American homeowners do not have thousands of dollars to invest in home repairs. Due to the high costs, home repairs are pushed to the bottom of the priority list. Finding a trustworthy service to perform the job is also an issue for 39 % of U.S. homeowners. This is a concern for me as well because if the repair is done incorrectly, there will be greater damage to the house. More money will need to be spent fixing a house that was improperly repaired.
If the project is not difficult, a homeowner will attempt to perform the task instead of relying on a service. Fixing a leaking pipe, clearing clogged drains, rebuilding broken steps, and installing smoke detectors are repairs that can be easily performed.
