Homeowner Maintenance Made Easy: The Basics

If you’re the happy owner of a new custom Florida home by ICI Homes, you probably know maintenance tasks will be necessary down the road.

It’s a common obligation and one that embodies the old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Taking care of tasks around the house when you spot the need for them can eliminate bigger and potentially more extensive (and expensive!) fixes later.

But homeowner maintenance shouldn’t be dreaded or procrastinated upon. Nor does it have to be farmed out to someone else.

Luckily, you’re off to a great start!

When you build or buy a new custom Florida home with ICI Homes, you get a great maintenance boost. We build EQ Factor Homes, which means all of our homes incorporate the latest building and construction techniques, environmentally sound materials, and energy-efficient appliances.

Your new home is in tip-top shape and ready to enjoy right off the bat. But even with this great head start, maintenance is still required to keep your home in tip-top shape for years to come.
