Seasonal Home Maintenance Package
Regular Maintenance is Key 
The best way to protect the investment in your home is by regularly inspecting your home, and following good maintenance practices.  With a regular schedule of seasonal maintenance you can prevent the most common — and costly — problems, before they occur. 
 
The maintenance package is designed to perform mundane tasks that get pushed aside by our busy schedules, as well as inspection of key area's of your home to avoid potential problems.
 
The maintenance package will protect the investment in your home, maximize the resale value, and minimize potential issues when selling your home.
