Rotting carpet wants rubber.

This is the tale of a house where the carpet was water-stained and rotting because the aluminium and glass exterior door was missing the rubber seal in between the frame and the glass panel.  This meant the glass would rattle in the wind, and rain would get into the gap and seep into the house, wetting, and eventually rotting, the carpet.  Expensive solution: replace carpet regularly.  Cheap prevention: replace the rubber seal around panes of glass.  No point in doing the first without doing the second too.

If you have trouble figuring out what is going on with your maintenance issues, get an inspection done by us.  Call for a time for Rental Results to walk through your investment property with you to point out the maintenance items you’ve missed.   This will potentially prevent you spending thousands of dollars in future repairs.
