Annual Home Maintenance Inspection

What is a Annual Home Maintenance Inspection?

Even the most vigilant homeowner can, from time to time, miss small problems or forget about performing some routine home repairs and seasonal maintenance.

That’s why an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection will help you keep your home in good condition, prevent serious issues, and increase your home’s resale value.

Why should I order an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection?

Do you have your car serviced on a regular basis?

Do you have your heating and air conditioning systems serviced on a regular basis?

An Annual Home Maintenance Inspection is the same as having your car or heating/air conditioning systems services on a regular basis. The most important thing to understand as a homeowner is that your house also requires care and regular maintenance. As time goes on, parts of your house will wear out, break down, deteriorate, leak, or simply stop working.

No need to worry. Don’t get overwhelmed. You are not alone.

Arch Inspections can help you with maintaining your home. Consider ordering an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection to set your mind at ease.  I’ll show you what you should look for as a smart homeowner.
