When it comes to home repairs, there are generally three types of people: 1) those who get onto home repairs immediately, 2) those who leave repairs for as long as possible, and finally go for a cheap, band-aid fix and 3) those who never get around to doing them at all!
If you’re goal is to eventually put your home on the market, then you want to maintain the value of your home – if not actually increase its value.
One way to do this is to get onto home repairs before they become bigger, more expensive issues to fix. So, for your own sake, don’t be a Dodgy Dave or a Lazy Susan; here’s why you should get that sliding door repaired and maintain the value of your biggest asset.
People notice sliding door issues right away
Sliding door repairs aren’t something you can sweep under the rug if you’re thinking of putting your home up for sale – not that we condone any kind of under-rug-sweeping. What we mean is that potential buyers will notice a faulty sliding door right away.
Why? Because, at an open inspection, people will be opening and closing it all the time! First impressions count, and your sliding door is often one of the first things people use in your home.
It can reflect negatively on the rest of the house
Sometimes, it’s not about the faulty sliding door itself, but a potential negative reflection of the rest of the home. When something as essential as a sliding door is faulty, it might beg the question from interested candidates: what else is wrong with the home?
Don’t let something as small as a sliding door repair stand in the way of attracting great buyers. Get that door repaired by a professional, as soon as possible.
People have a misconception about the difficulty of fixing sliding doors
And finally, many people have a misconception that fixing a sliding door is some kind of impossible, wildly expensive feat. Well, that’s only true if you go about it the wrong way! Sure, if you go to a sliding door retailer and they say you need an entire door and frame replacement, you’re looking at thousands of dollars. No thanks!
But rarely do you need an entire replacement. We Fix Sliding Doors save you thousands on a replacement by installing their Miracle Track Cover which simply goes over the top of your current tracks. This essentially creates a whole new track, allowing your door to move as smooth as butter – and it costs a fraction of the price of a replacement!
