Repair & Maintenance

Protect Your Investment 

Coastal homes require more upkeep than the average home. Sun, wind, and salt air are rough on coastal exteriors. Old windows are a considerable weak point in keeping water out, and real problems begin and spread once water is in the walls. Decking and stairs may need to be repaired or replaced. Pilings need attention after a number of years, especially on older homes built when building codes were less stringent.

Knowing what to look for in taking care of coastal homes comes with experience. Robert Norton maintains his North Carolina home inspector license just for this purpose. The building products have changed over the years, but the main issues have remained the same. Choose the right product, and install it properly. Quality craftsmanship pays.
