A Great Way to Maintain a Healthy Home

clarkesCharles Clarke appreciates the value of keeping the home he and his wife built in 1968 in excellent repair. Now in his early 80s, he can envision a time down the road when the house might be placed on the market or fall to his children.

That’s why Clarke counts on Get Dwell for regular assessments that help him identify problems and potential problems he might miss, and for repairs and other maintenance he knows need to be made.

On another visit they found a piece of sunken pipe that had pulled away from a downspout, and they fixed it. Those are just a couple small examples of the work they’ve done here.”

On a larger scale, Get Dwell found foundation leaks and window issues and other more serious problems that the Clarkes were unaware of. Get Dwell implemented corrective solutions that saved the couple a lot of money, effort and frustration while adding to the value  and sale-ability of the house.

clarkes3Clarke continues: “I have a long checklist of maintenance recommendations from a recent visit they made, things that help my keep the house in tip-top shape. That kind  of service is one reason I think very highly of the work Get Dwell does.”

Clarke’s checklist is a result of the Home Health Assessment, a unique service developed by Get Dwell that involves semi-annual walk-throughs of our clients’ homes, followed by a report detailing recommended repairs and maintenance. Once it’s prepared, Get Dwell guides you through the Home Health Assessment report and helps you prioritize work based on importance and cost.

clarkes4Regular Home Health Assessments are a way for Get Dwell to develop a relationship with your home, and set a maintenance “baseline” that informs future assessments and helps us better identify issues down the road. And they’re a great way for you to avoid potentially expensive surprises and get peace of mind your home is in good repair from top to bottom.

We’ll talk more about the Home Health Assessment in future issues. In the meantime, if you’d like to schedule your own assessment, give us a call or e-mail us.
