Your dream home?
Could this be a year round nightmare?
Your home can be your refuge, or a thief stealing your vacation money and the kids school tuition. I have met too many people who are unprepared for the maintenance, restoration or upgrades that their home requires. We all have features that make us swoon, maybe the photo above is a house you could fall in love with. Even newer homes can have defects in four critical areas: Health, Safety, Durability or Energy Efficiency. Any home built before 2010 has opportunities to improve energy efficiency by upgrading the building, not the HVAC systems. So the real questions are not simply, “refuge or thief”, but refuge or: health risk; safety hazard; short materials life; hidden building deterioration; an energy hog?

Success Support Services grew from the roots of meeting home owners who took all the rights steps, but did not have all the information or experience to protect themselves when shopping: 1) For a new home; 2) A major renovation; 3) Repairs of basement water systems, roofing, siding, windows and doors.
