Home Maintenance Program

The DGH maintenance plan is designed to perform home maintenance tasks that get pushed aside by our busy routines, as well as inspection of key areas of the home to avoid potential problems. This inspection can also help you get ready to sell your home. This maintenance plan will protect the investment in your home, maximize the resale value, and minimize potential issues when selling your home.
