More Than Just an Inspection.
Annual Building or Home Maintenance Inspection

Even the most vigilant property owner can, from time to time, miss small problems or forget about performing some routine building or home repairs and seasonal maintenance. That’s why an Annual Building or Home Maintenance Inspection will help you keep your building or home in good condition and prevent it from suffering serious, long-term and expensive damage from minor issues that should be addressed now. We recommend having an Annual Building or Home Maintenance Inspection performed annually for your primary office or residence and any investment properties you own.

The most important thing to understand as a new building or homeowner is that your property requires care and regular maintenance. As time goes on, parts of your office or house will wear out, break down, deteriorate, leak, or simply stop working.

But relax. Don’t get overwhelmed. You’re not alone. CREI can help you with maintaining your office or home. Consider hiring us to come back in about a year to perform an Annual Building or Home Maintenance Inspection. We’ll show you what you should look for as a smart owner.
