Homeowners learn one thing above all else; that is the importance of regular maintenance and check-ups. Homes are like bodies in that regularly checking overall health is key to avoiding larger issues. Often times large problems arise because smaller problems were ignored along the road.

This infographic on common house problems is a great place to start when putting together a to-do list of maintenance issues. Homes should be safe, warm and welcoming places so small issues, like drafty windows, leaky faucets, slight discolorations, and window moisture must be taken care of immediately. If they are not fixed they will negatively impact  the value of your home, should you choose to refinance or sell. With this often being the largest investment most people venture into, maintaining and improving value is not only important for the house but for your overall quality of life in the future.

This infographic shows common problems along with practical solutions that you can begin to remedy in your home. Replacing hinges, adding weather stripping and cleaning gutters are the just the beginning. Some of these remedies, while necessary, are best done by professionals who have the tools and knowledge to fix them quickly and correctly while saving you a headache and lost time.
