Seasonal Maintenance Tips
The last thing we need is to have car issues, that's why we do routine maintenance on vehicles. Taking care of your home, works the same way. Seasonal maintenance can help keep your mechanical items lasting longer and more efficient. Plus as we are keeping an eye on the different parts of the home, we are more effectively able to detect and repair deficiencies before major damage occurs. Issues like wood rot, deterioration, water leaks, gas leaks, missing shingles and more start out small and without proper and quick repair, it can lead to major problems. If you already own the home, a yearly inspection is a great idea to help identify the issues and repair then before it becomes costly. Also home inspections are possible during a purchase and real estate transaction. The home inspector will walk the property with trained and experienced eyes visually inspecting the property for maintenance items, major deficiencies and safety/fire hazards. The findings will be organized in an easy to read pdf with pictures which can be used to possibly negotiate the purchase price, have items repaired or as a check list for the buyer to use after purchase. The home inspection is just one of the great tools available to you as a home owner.
