To Do list

     We all have a “To Do” list of things that need to be done for maintenance or repairs around our home.  Finding the time to do them is a challenge.  Check Total Home is here to help.  Let us bring our expertise to you.  The list can be short or long, simple or in-depth.  Even the small stuff is important and deserves attention. A lot of what we do starts with a list of small list. We will take on the small tasks with as much enthusiasm as we would the bigger projects. It all needs to be done.

   I keep a “To Do” list on my phone and add things to it as I think of them. You can have a Check Total Home list on your phone and then send it to us when you are ready to get things “Checked” off.  

   We live in and proudly serve the Carroll County area and have plenty of references available upon request.

When re-roofing a house it is important to make sure that the decking is clean and without damage.
