of greatest loss in a home. a lot of times people will look at windows, like this particular home, an old erwin doe and say "wow, i have to replace them." this particular window, vintage 1972. it's single pane, a storm window on the outside so it's relatively efficient. but in the corners you can see there's deficiencies where you can see daylight. most homeowners will think wow, i have this rotten wood, i need to replace the whole thing. while i'm an advocate that new windows add great value to your home, it's amazing what a squirt of caulking can do to keep these windows as efficient as possible while you save enough money to replace the windows. basements are great but water in the basement is not. the homeowner mentioned they have a problem with water coming in here and coming to get the carpeting all damp. now, there's a bathroom on the other side of this wall so the first thing to check is make sure the connection with the toilet meets the floor is sound,
10:41 am
there's nothing leaking around there. but if you experience water around the perimeter of your home, pay attention to the down spouts and landscaping around your home. you see, water can pool there because the down spouts don't extend far enough away from the house. you want to make sure that's at least three feet. if you notice water pooling there, you may want to try to build up the soil so the water moves away from the house and you never want to build up the dirt so it's above the foundation line because that can cascade down the wall and head right into your basement. >> that was really helpful! and hoda, look who's here today. "today" contributor and hose of house smarts ♪ lou manfredini, he's got a name that rhymes with fettuccini ♪ >> i love fettuccini. very good pasta. >> that was great, by the way. >> thank you. the thing with the roof is that it's a really important thing. when i was speaking with the homeowner, you get contractors to say "you're going to need this, that, this."

when i was looking at the roof, it's an older roof that's for sure but there's not an alarm right away. the flashing is very important. i have samples of shingles where you can go ahead and replace it. remember the average age of a roof in the united states is 13 years. that's how long it lasts. many people have longer but when you see these grain -- the little granules start to come off or these start to curl, that's a sign to say, boy, i've got to do something. but you want to check in the attic to see if i get any leaks. if i'm not you don't to hurry to do it. one thing i'll tell grow you're doing a roof, do a tearoff. don't reroof. it's not a good value proposition for a home because when you go to resell it and they say "you have two roofs on this house" it will come back to bite you on the sale price. i talked about that in the piece. 90% of the time when a roof leaks it's because of a flashing deficiency near the chimney, where the siding meets the roof. you'll hear people say "it's only when the rain comes from the north and it beats against
10:43 am
the wall." that's because this is failing. so a lot of times that's not a whole reroof, it's a roofer coming to do -- redo the flashing. >> we have 30 seconds left. >> here we go. windows those windows in that house. the homeowner was told "you have to replace the window." no, you don't. yes, they're single pane, not the most efficient but storm windows, if those are deficient you can get a storm win defor $120 as opposed to replacing $600. and if you have a basement, you have to use a sump pump. this is a sumpro. these alternate back and forth, it uses a battery inverter meaning these regular pumps work, the regular ones when they're plugged in, it's not a bilge pump and these things will work up to three days with no power. >> wow, thank you, lou manfredini! love you, buddy. go to and click the connect button for a chance to have lou answer your question next time. the home is where the heart
