Home Maintenance Tips



Home Maintenance Tips

So you’ve just moved into your brand new home. You shopped around and did a lot of research to find the home that was just right for you. The moving trucks are gone, the boxes are unpacked, and your belongings are in their proper places. What should you do now?

One of the most important things to remember is that there is no such thing as maintenance free. All building materials deteriorate. Some, like exterior paint or wood, can degrade within a few years, and others, like masonry, do so over decades and centuries. Maintenance is a continuous process. As a homeowner, you are responsible for routine maintenance to keep your house functioning properly.
