Fun Facts

The average house needs the interior painted at least every 4 years depending on the size of the home.

Carpeting life is usually 7-10 years depending on how heavy usage is.

The exterior needs to be painted every 8-10 years.

Also, if your house sits under trees, it is a good idea to have the moss removed, and maybe even the gutters cleaned every winter, to ensure proper draining.

If appliances are included in the home, they are the owners responsibility to maintain properly.
