There are certain ways you can be sure of this; the most important being choosing the right home builder for the job. With so many builders available, it’s hard to know whether or not you’ve found the right one.

Because of how long it takes to really make a difference, this is not a yearly project. We usually recommend touching up or at least checking in every 3 years.
