Anticipate Projected Maintenance Costs in 2013

Be prepared... A service call ain't $29.95 anymore.

Regardless of what needs to be fixed, the cost of a home service call is pretty much the same between various trades on Chicago's north shore.

$225 is the average cost to have a technician come to your home for a typical service call to provide the periodic parts & maintenance required due to age.

Not addressing concerns in a timely manner could triple this cost.  Should any projected repair exceed 50% of the cost of new, consider replacement.

HVAC…(every 5-10 years), Roofing…(every 5-10 years), Electrical…(every 5-10 years), Plumbing…(every 5-10 years), Carpet Cleaning…(every 5 years), Computer/Wi-Fi/TV…(every 5-10 years), Handyman...(every 5-10 years), Sliding Patio Door…(every 20 years)
