So, unless you just moved into a brand-new subdivision, you’ve probably got one or two spots in your home that could use a little work. Whether your house is hundreds of years old, or isn’t old enough to drink yet, every house can benefit from regular upkeep. This applies to both necessary maintenance, like keeping your roof in good shape or tuck-pointing your brick, and also applies to those minor aesthetic issues caused by temperature and humidity changes or the house just settling through the years.
