My dad and mom are always keen about their house and make sure to keep up with maintenance, but if something needs replacing, they ensure to have it done before it’s too late… This is a habit that they instilled in all of us and how to also maintain our homes.
I remember when my good friend and I were kids, dad used to have a calendar in the home office where he would mark important dates, however be it a roof inspection or HVAC maintenance, all that went on the calendar.
He always said that he saw his parents suffer because of doing things much later and he didn’t want to go through the same, then so, he would mow the lawn on time, have the cars worked on, and even contact the HVAC business early during Spring and fall. That’s why they always seemed to have HVAC systems and vehicles that would last a long time separate from needing a replacement, dad was also unquestionably particular with matters like roofing maintenance; Every year, he’d contact the roofing corporation and have them send roofers to the house. The plan was to do an inspection, plus roofing maintenance to ensure all was okay. They had purchased the house and done roofing replacement, and the next time they did the same was 30 years later. This time my good friend and I were all adults, and decided to chip in to help them to pay for the current roof, but roofing replacement isn’t cheap, however it’s something you must do. They had been doing frequent roofing service and the experts finally advocated them to opt for roofing replacement, a brand current roof not only makes the house look better however also improves its value.
