If you’re like most homeowners, keeping up with repairs and improvements on your home can be stressful. Not only is a leaky roof a sure source of stress, but finding a way to pay for a new roof can be equally stressful.
Maybe It Can Wait
When your home has a problem – gutters that overflow, wet walls or a wet ceiling from a leaking roof, drafty windows or faulty plumbing – and you’re unsure of how to pay for the fix, your inclination may be to wait for a bit. “Maybe it won’t get any worse,” or “Maybe we can just patch it for now.” While this plan of action may be kind to your wallet now, it will be far less kind later. Allowing home repair issues to linger can be much most costly when they finally are addressed. Not to mention, not addressing home repairs will take its toll on the resale value of your home as well.
How to Get It Done Now – Even If You Don’t Have Savings
If you own your home, chances are you have some amount of equity. Even in a down economy, real estate can hold its value. When home improvement needs arise, check with your mortgage broker to see what they recommend. Brokers offer home equity loans as well as refinancing options that can give you that much-needed home improvement fund. Additionally, many contractors like S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows offer their own financing.
