A home is made up of many individual parts and systems, each part being supplied and installed by individual people. No one pays attention to what anyone else did, just to what they themselves are doing. So many different parts and people can mask many problems- perhaps the previous person adjusted the insulation to accommodate a component and neglected to replace it. The following person covers it up and no one knows about it until months or years down the road when a large problem becomes apparent! A small fix, early on may prevent a large expensive repair later. And then there are the repairs, fixes and renovations done by previous homeowners. Many people think a quick fix is good enough. Many people are wrong. Think of a home inspection as preventative maintenance. A thorough home inspection with all the right tools may pay great dividends down the road.

It tells you everything about a how a house is built, how it works, things to do and things not to do. Did you know that a house breathes? Did you know that a house actually gets bigger and smaller every year? See what else you can learn below!
There are a lot of things to remember about owning a home. There is regular maintenance like annual and seasonal maintenance, and repairs that can wait and repairs that can’t. Below is one of my favourite links to a Government of Canada guide to home maintenance! I hope you find it helpful!
