No.  Any expenses you paid for in 2018 would have to be entered on the 2018 tax return.  You can amend the 2018 tax return to add those expenses.

If they were in fact, repairs and not property improvements, they get entered/claimed on the tax return for the tax year they were actually paid.

If property improvements, they get entered in the assets/depreciation section in the tax year the improvement was placed in service, regardless of what year you paid for the property improvement.
