The most common home renovations hold purely aesthetic value. Areas such as the bathroom, kitchen, and bedrooms are usually the recipients of fresh paint and updated furnishings. These improvements can add comfort and appeal to your home while simultaneously increasing its value. A new bathroom vanity or modern kitchen countertop, for example, make a visible difference.
It isn’t all about attractiveness, however. There are functional changes to a home that can improve its structural integrity and increase its worth. Consider the following:
Water is a primary aggressor with regard to structural damage. Waterproofing your home will protect it from leaks and flooding, prevent foundation cracks, and deter both mold and mildew. Concrete waterproofing is applied via an injection system and is most effective for existing foundation cracks.
The Hydraway System is another effective means of waterproofing. Not only does this system never clog, but it can direct water away from a home 70 percent faster than other waterproofing techniques. The professionals at Intech Anchoring have been installing Hydraway systems for decades and have yet to find a product more effective or durable.
Even the most minor fixes to your home’s foundation can strengthen the structure itself, defend it against radon, and both shield it from and fill pre-existing cracks. In addition to various waterproofing techniques, the team at Intech Anchoring is proficient in multiple levels of foundation repair.
Tiebacks, for instance, are steel plates that can be screwed into the foundation to stabilize it. The tiebacks relieve some of the pressure from unstable earth and direct it elsewhere. The plates are also attached to steel poles, which are buried in the ground horizontally for extra support.
Invest in a Stronger Foundation
These improvements warrant multiple benefits. You have the peace of mind knowing that you have fortified your property as much as possible, and that you have achieved a safer and healthier environment for yourself and your family, without a shaky foundation or illness due to mold and mildew. Furthermore, if you plan to sell your home in the future, such renovations are sure to appeal to future buyers – all warranties are transferable.
