Keep a Home Maintenance Log for Easy Reference

House Maintenance Log

If you’ve ever been in the position where you tried to match paint, replace a faucet part, tried to find replacement or matching hardware, along with numerous other reasons, you’ll appreciate the value in creating and retaining a home maintenance log for easy reference.

Examples:

  • New or recent smoke and carbon monoxide alarms (can be written on detector sticker as well)
  • Window and door weatherstripping maintenance & replacement
  • Regular exterior caulking of windows
  • Regular caulking replacement of shower and bath areas
  • Recent replacement of receptacles and switches.┬áThese items do eventually wear out.
  • Sump pump replacement (if applicable)
  • Insulation upgrades to better seal the home and make it more efficient
