The Costly Issue with the Ignorance is Bliss Approach

Did you know that 56 percent of homeowners admit to taking an “ignorance is bliss” approach to home repairs and changing weather? Research commissioned by Owens Corning Roofing and conducted by OnePoll found that the average cost per year for those who experience weather-related damage is $3,497. On average, the homeowners surveyed have lived in their current house for eight years, which means repair costs could add up to nearly $30K. If these issues are left unchecked many home repair costs can really add up.

Additionally, this research also found that of the 87 percent of homeowners who have experienced an issue, they currently have an average of three issues. The top issues respondents have faced in their homes include pests (such as mice/rats, termites and carpenter ants), drafty doors/windows and leaky roofs. We’ll show you how to manage all of these issues yourself, so you can save on major repair costs and be one of the best homeowners out there.
