A home is the most expensive purchase most people will ever make. Protect your investment by performing routine maintenance to keep your home in tip-top shape. Scheduling these tasks can help you fix problems before they start and identify minor repairs before they become major (and expensive) projects. Use this guide to help schedule your home's maintenance by season (along with a handful of monthly tasks). If any of the jobs go beyond your skill level or lead to more involved repairs, hire a professional handyman to help.
