Many of them are using various products from their local hardware store or kits that are found on line.
As you have probably noticed, most of these kits or crack repair tubes and various other products don't give the desired effect.
These products are intended to seal cracks, but they are not intended to make the cracks go away.
If you have not used one of these products, you may still have seen their results on homes in your neighborhood.
They tend to leave a noticeable lightening bolt repair across the side of the home.
This is known as the LBE or lightening bolt effect.
In general, these LBEs are ugly and undesirable to you as the resident or to the prospective buyer of your home.
In the buying process, the buyer will generally have an inspector take a look around the home to determine the extent of the damage on the home.
The buyer will then devalue the selling price of the home based on what the inspector thinks the repairs will cost.
These estimates are often higher the more undesirable things look.
