An Ounce of Prevention…

Jim Ogletree_Color_LBIf there is one thing I’ve learned during my 35 years working in homes and businesses, it’s this, it pays to maintain and repair rather than to put small repairs off until another day.  It seems most times when that day finally arrives, what was once a small nuisance is often an inconvenient, and costly repair/replacement.

 

For instance, a relatively inexpensive and simple tasks such as power washing along with staining, sealing or painting wood surfaces will actually prolong the life of our decks, doors, trim and siding.  Left untreated wood rots and decays much quicker than if properly sealed.  Brick Patios and Walkways also gather a lot of grime and debris, and will benefit greatly from an occasional dose maintenance.

Roofs, Gutters, Foundations and more deserve a little TLC from time to time.  If you’ve just built a new home; protect your investment.  Learn what maintenance schedule will make the most of your investment.  If you’ve been in your home for awhile, a fresh set of eyes can point out items you’ve begun to overlook or gotten used to which may soon be cause for concern.

A simple inspection by trained eyes could alert you to potential hazards, inconvenience and reduce deferred maintenance.  We’ll advise you of the items which need to be addressed and educate you as to which items, left unchecked, are likely to be most damaging or costly to repair.  Our Preventative Maintenance Program (PMP) is a budget’s best friend.  Instead of being hit with an unexpected expense for items which must be fixed — take care of smaller projects on a budget-friendly plan.

If a new family were moving into your house, there’d no doubt be a home inspection to assure the bank and purchasers that all was sound.

When was your property last inspected?  Protect your property, your investment and your budget!
