There are several things homeowners can do to prevent a need for home maintenance.  Most of them are easy and merely require a few minutes several times a month.

  • Clean your gutters regularly.  Check them more often during or after storms and season changes.
  • Check your attic after a rain for leaks.
  • Cut back bushes and trees from your home.
  • Inspect paint and caulking, and make sure there is no separation or peeling.
  • Inspect moisture in crawl spaces or basements. 
  • Cut off your water when leaving town if you are not irrigating.
  • Cover your exterior water supplies during colder months.
  • Open and close foundation vents during season changes.
  • Change HVAC filters at a minimum of every three months.
  • Make sure have you sufficient attic ventilation.  This will save you money and extend the life of your roof.
  • Make sure you have vapor barriers like plastic sheathing in crawl spaces.
  • Make sure crawl spaces and attics have insulation, and make sure the insulation is in good shape.

Obviously, there are many more.  These are just a few examples of maintaining your home and protecting your investment.  Please let us know if we can assist in taking care of these items.  We can complete a free evaluation to help you determine your needs.

Yelverton Contracting is your best choice in the area.  We feel there are several points that reinforce this idea:

Real Experience: Aldon not only knows the process of building, he has learned hands on how to put things together.  He started at a young age learning the invaluable knowledge and skills involved in the building process.

Building Knowledge: Aldon has studied construction his entire life.  From working through high school as a laborer to interning with builders throughout college, Aldon has always had a passion for building.

Quality Workmanship and Materials:  Both quality workmanship and quality materials are important in building things that will last.  Inferior products simply will not stand the test of time. 

We Welcome Challenges:  We have an appetite for challenges and are confident that we are always able to meet the needs of our clients.

Attention to Detail:  Our attention to detail is far superior to our competitors.  For example, we complete debris removal with dumpsters with rubber wheels as opposed to roll-off dumpsters.  Our dumpsters will not damage your concrete or leave marks behind when the job is finished.

Reputation: Our reputation precedes us.  Simply refer to our client testimonials as a small sample of clients who are pleased with our work and recommend us to others.

Free Estimates and Free Advice: We offer free estimates for your potential job.  However, even if you choose to use another contractor, we want you to have the correct information.

Recycling and Donations:  Waste not, want not.  We do our part to reduce debris sent to landfills.  We also store scraps of left over material to pass on savings as well as keeping unnecessary items out of landfills.  We also donate items such as plumbing fixtures, light fixtures, windows, doors, trim, appliances and personal items to Habitat for Humanity, Cause for Paws, Salvation Army, and Vietnam Veterans.
