When it comes to owning a home, time seems to fly by. That “new” deck you installed? It’s ten years old. Your garage doors aren’t opening and closing as smoothly as they used to, and your siding is starting to show signs of wear and tear. It’s hard to keep on top of your home maintenance needs and to prioritize those projects that require the greatest attention. This is where a home maintenance assessment comes in.
What is a Home Maintenance Assessment?
A home maintenance assessment is similar to a home inspection in that it helps you identify any potential problems or home maintenance issues, including:
Roof or siding damage
Leaks or moisture concerns
Mold, moss, or algae growth
Building code compliance
Why Schedule a Home Maintenance Assessment?
“Often, a home maintenance assessment can help identify problems that would go unnoticed to the untrained eye,” explains Steve Sousa, Project Manager at Cormack Construction. He notes that over time, many of these unaddressed issues could cost a homeowner a lot of money. “After thoroughly assessing your home, we’ll prioritize those areas that need the greatest attention,” Sousa adds.
Preserving the Value of Your Home
Like anything of great value, a home needs ongoing maintenance to preserve and protect it. For example, if you have water stains on your walls or ceilings, your water pipes might not be insulated properly. Over time, mold and mildew could develop in these areas of moisture buildup, putting both your home and your health at risk.
