The ONLY solution for a maintenance-FREE home.

Home maintenance is a never ending process...So you have your dream home, it’s beautiful, and you’d like to keep it that way. It’s like a machine, a combination of thousands of smaller elements that are interconnected and create this object of your desire.

When all of those smaller components are properly optimized and functioning as anticipated, your home should provide you with a safe, comfortable, and energy efficient environment. However, the only way to sustain this condition is to implement some home maintenance procedures.

Home maintenance is a never ending process which basically boils down to 3 steps:

  • Observation of your home
  • Potential problem identification
  • Preventive home maintenance and repair execution

If you ever had a home inspection performed by a certified and experienced home inspector, you may already know that only a routine home maintenance will guarantee a “maintenance free” home.

I tried to cover many of the most critical yet typical maintenance procedures on my website. However, questions following my articles confirm that interaction of various home components can often create a condition that is far from typical and difficult to diagnose at the same time.

You’re building this website with your questions and I’m glad I can help you with it.
