Dean and Duane Kaufman, owners of Kaufman Homes, are excited to announce we have developed and will be operating a new company called Kaufman’s Home Maintenance.
Kaufman Home’s success in remodeling has been greatly enhanced with five highly skilled technicians who each have fully equipped trucks allowing them to do all phases of construction at the highest skill level.
Dripping faucets, chipping paint, overflowing gutters, clogged vents, cracked seals and a sagging roof … ah, the joys of owning your own home!
The torrential downpour in January of 2012 caused a lot of headaches for homeowners and businesses in Salem. I am sure there could be many stories written of instances where the extreme wet weather caused varying degrees of problems.
At Kaufman Homes we have found Customers of new homes or remodels experiencing the changing of now partially mandated more energy efficient type lighting. Change is not always easy but eventually energy efficient lighting and bulbs will be a way of life that we will get used and the payback will be lowered energy costs.
Every season our Home Repair and Maintenance Team is sent out on calls during the Fall. This is the time of year to prepare our homes for the coming variety of inclement winter weather that we can or will have in Oregon and the Salem area. During the fall we can be lulled into putting off doing these things especially if we have an Indian summer, but this good weather makes outdoor winterizing much easier. Once this inclement weather hits, and rest assured it will, then we are scrambling to do after the fact and by then it may be too late or the weather may make it more difficult or dangerous to do.
Kaufman Homes Home Repair and Maintenance division has done a lot of exterior home repairs resulting from moisture intrusion and water damage. Most all of these problems could have been prevented if they had been discovered early on. The longer these problems exist the greater the damage and the more extensive the home repairs are. I have included a list of items that will help you in your own home inspections.
