Helping Beaverton Homeowners with Quality Repair Projects

It’s time for you to sell your home. You’re so excited about finally making a sale and moving on to greener pastures, but then the home inspector’s report arrives. Your deal is about to fall apart because your house needs a few repairs! 

Are you in a situation like this? You aren’t alone. It’s easy to miss out on the damage that naturally happens because of the passage of time. Unfortunately, when it’s time for you to sell your house, the home inspector will be able to point out everything that needs fixing, from dry rot to wall cracks.

It’s just a few repairs, right? Shouldn’t it be no big deal for buyers? False.

The truth is, most buyers want homes that only need a few repairs as they would like to move in right away. The damage in your house will lower the number of people who’d want to buy it. Your prospective buyers most likely don’t want to deal with the costs and inconveniences of having to make a repair. If there are any buyers that are looking for a fixer-upper, what’s on their mind is just a repaint, not something major like a re-roof! And when they do want to push through, they’d ask for a huge discount to allow for the repair costs AND the effort.

In this week’s blog post, we feature a homeowner whose sale wouldn’t have successfully pushed through if not for our help. Read on to find out how we handled this project!

Repairing Fences, Siding, Trim and Electrical Outlets in Beaverton

A homeowner from Beaverton, OR called us in tears asking for our help. She was looking forward to selling her home until she received the home inspection report. The report called out several things that needed to be repaired before the sale could push through. And she only had three days!

Her #1 concern was whether we could come out, take a look at the project, and get everything done within that three-day window. Of course, our team is always ready to help out homeowners in need of our services. We showed up and walked her through the inspection report, assuring her that we would have everything done before her deadline and within her budget.

For starters, we fixed her already rotted fence that had fallen over. We used cedar for this repair, which is an extremely durable material that can outlast other wood types.

Next, we replaced the rotten siding on her chimney, rotten siding on the backside of her house as well as siding that had been eaten by animals!  For this, we made use of T1-11 siding, a very versatile building material that’s easy to work with.

We then used standard window and door trim to replace the trim around doors and windows that had rotted. Our team even repaired some electrical outlets AND painted every repair done with high-quality paint!

All of this was completed in only two and a half days. And guess what? Our client’s sale was a success!

Buyers often won’t bother to check out homes that need a lot of work done. Even if you’re able to sell it, it will be at a lower price than you expected. Boss Exteriors can help! We provide you with the highest quality of contractor services, with honest pricing and excellent customer communication so you can make your successful sale.
