From foundation and roofing to plumbing and HVAC, there are many aspects in a home that need to be monitored year-round. Unfortunately for majority of homeowners, due to lack of knowledge or time, these issues may go unnoticed leading to expensive repairs.
Conducting a regular maintenance inspection in a home can avoid these issues and help stay proactive with preventative care. This is almost like an annual body check-up to keep up with preventative care of our health.
“Over the last 15 years as a home inspector, I’ve seen firsthand how lack of routine maintenance can lead to breakdown and loss in value of a home,” said Mike Hankins, Owner and Inspector at WIN Home Inspection. “We want to change that by using our experience to help homeowners learn how to protect the value of their home.”
Why it’s vital to identify issues early
According to a recent CNBC article, 77% of homebuyers face unexpected repair costs in the first year of ownership, survey finds. These unforeseen issues and repairs can be costly when detected early, but the savings can significantly benefit your budget and health.
For instance, evaluating and repairing or replacing a sump pump costs much less than a flooded basement, while detecting mold early can keep all who live in a home safe from its dangers.
