Keep these tips in mind as you learn how best to manage your home’s maintenance. And, refer to INHP’s home maintenance schedule for a seasonal guide to help you plan and prevent repairs.
- Include maintenance as a line item in your budget so you remember to save for large expenses, like new windows or roof repair.
