Part of owning a home is the hopeful idea that it will appreciate in value with time. The appreciation of value over time is considered an investment. So the general goal if most homeowners is to be able to make money off the home by renting or selling the house.
The disconnect I have experienced over the last 10 years as a residential and commercial contractor, is the assumption that day to day life in a home is enough to maintain the home. The unfortunate reality is that ALL natural components used in construction WILL breakdown over time. Repair or replacement of ALL building components is inevitable. Even man-made materials, if not in perfect conditions, will fail. (Ie. Plastics in proximity to excessive heat, pressure, etc.)
My mission is to educate and encourage property owners about the importance of vigilant proactive maintenance to ensure your investment continues to appreciate in value and assist in your success.30
