Cracked or damaged foundation
The older the home, the more its foundation has been exposed to shifts in the ground, leading to cracks and damages over time. The cost to repair such damages and prevent possible water infiltrations and damage can cost around $4,000.
“One of the most important things you’d want to do to take care of any home is water management,” Colasuonno says. “You want to make sure the brick pointing is done and there’s no water seeping in within the bricks.”
