An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. With regular home maintenance homeowners can prevent costly damage and emergency repairs down the line. To educate homeowners on when to complete maintenance projects, HomeAdvisor provides a yearly home checklist detailing which projects should be completed each season. Leah Ingram, HomeAdvisor’s personal finance expert, explains that completing home maintenance throughout the year can prevent future more expensive emergency repairs.
“According to HomeAdvisor’s Cost Guide, the price of completing the tasks listed in the yearly home checklist can add up to $2,950,” Ingram said. “However, the cost of emergency repairs that can result from not completing these tasks can be up to 14 times that amount.”
Ingram lists key projects homeowners should complete each season:
