"An ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of cure"
— Benjamin Franklin

Franklin said it over 200 years ago, but it's never been more true — or valuable — for today's homeowner. With the increasing costs of utilities and home repairs, doing a little preventative maintenance will preserve your home, increase its value and save you money in repairs and energy costs.

Simple things such as replacing air filters, adding a programmable thermostat and insulating your water heater are easy fixes that will save you money. Filling cracked concrete, installing gutter covers and re-caulking a tub or shower will increase the value of your home. Step-by-step instructions for these and other inexpensive projects are right inside.
