Pools are open, parks are crowded and the sun is glistening... Summer is here!
With this brings longer, warmer days, family bbq’s and trips to the beach. For the homeowner however, it is not all fun and games; it is time again to review your seasonal maintenance schedule. It is important with the change of every season that you are aware of the items in and around your home that must be inspected. This task should be completed on a monthly basis to ensure that you are meeting the requirements for maintaining your home.
In the summer months it is important that you inspect your heating, cooling and ventilation systems, maintain any exterior landscaping, including driveways and walks and check your water heater and other plumbing fixtures for leaks. In completing these items, among other indoor and outdoor maintenance, you will ensure that your home remains in the best of conditions for years to come. For the existing homeowner, comprehensive maintenance schedules can be found on both the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) website as well as on the Tarion website.
These lists will provide you with the information you need to ensure your home is functioning to the best of its ability. If you are a new home buyer who has purchased from Granite Homes you can rest assured that you will be provided this information in your Homeowner Information Manual in addition to the Maintenance Schedule that is sent via email to each of their homeowners on a seasonal basis.
This small gesture from Granite Homes is just another way that they have set their company apart from the competition.
