Why Proper Maintenance is Critical to the Health of Your Home
Owning your own home is a goal and priority for many Americans. Purchasing or building your home is an experience that can be both exhilarating and exhausting. You want to protect your investment by ensuring the time, energy and money you’ve put into your home is not wasted on unnecessary repairs or costs. This is where a regular home maintenance program comes in.
To properly maintain your home, you should follow a regular schedule for your systems and appliances. There are steps that can be taken to ensure your home is performing efficiently as intended. If you are new to home ownership, you may not know how, when or even why to maintain your systems and appliances. This is where Watson can help.
Preventative maintenance, having marginal time and money costs, will without a doubt save you time, money and stress in the long run. It can avoid expensive repairs, extend the life of your appliances and even reduce energy consumption costs.
If that doesn’t convince you, did you know that if something breaks down due to lack of proper maintenance, your home warranty plan typically does not cover the repair costs? Many homeowners do not realize this and are shocked by the rejection of a claim for this very reason. Also, most home warranty plans don’t cover “pre-existing” conditions that are caused from improper installation or modification.
To help you maintain your home efficiently and effectively, we’ve put together a guide for monthly, seasonal and annual tasks. This list is designed to be a helpful reference tool and can even be printed for your convenience.
What Makes Watson Unique
If you find yourself lacking the time or energy to perform these tasks, we are here to help. Watson offers preventative maintenance plans that adapt to your unique situation and home. Have a look at our service plans and choose what works for you.
Most home warranty and maintenance companies are excellent at selling plans that over promise results. Here’s why… The company works with a real estate professional or directly with you to earn your business by promising excellent communication and contractor service. This is great in theory, however, they are not typically the contractors performing the work. That work is subbed-out to a local contractor who then takes control of the scheduling and service. They will then report back to the company and request authorization for repairs or replacement. This is where the gap comes in.
Watson bridges this gap because we are the contractor that will be performing the work. There is no middle man. You are dealing directly with the company that will be at your house and who, quite possibly, wired your house and installed your equipment in the first place.
Let Watson earn your business by actually doing what we say we are going to do. We build sustainable relationships based on honesty, performance and service. Give us a call or shoot us an email. We’d love to work with you.
