Home Stewards residential services fall into two categories. For homeowners and property managers wishing to keep up with maintenance and have routine inspections and services provided we offer the Home Stewardship Program. For homes that have fallen in disrepair or just need tuning up beyond the Home Stewardship Checklists, we offer Special Project management and execution to help bring the home up to snuff.
For Home Stewardship & Healthy Building Science Clients
Improving your home should be fun and enjoyable, but the management of even a small project is often overwhelming for homeowners. Assembling and directing the right players can become frustrating, time consuming, and risky. We can help you evaluate the feasibility of a proposed project, then screen, organize and manage a team of proven professionals, contractors, architects, and product vendors to see it through. We specialize in addressing deferred maintenance and common items found during healthy building inspections.
We are experts at identifying deferred maintenance. Unfortunately, by the time Healthy Building Science gets called in to address an odor, mold, lead or asbestos issue, the cost of deferred maintenance is far greater than just fixing the original problem. The loose door, shaky duct, small leak, or pealing paint have become much bigger issues involving considerably more money and attention than would have been required if the home was well kept.
Our crew is especially adept at addressing common residential deferred maintenance issues such as touch-up paint and caulking, cleaning gutters and downspouts, installing french drains, cleaning out crawlspaces and installing vapor barriers, air sealing and keeping critters out of the home, replacing an appliance or two, overseeing installations of new HVAC and ductwork, etc. These are the most common things we encounter during our work as industrial hygienists, and therefore we are very good at addressing this scope of work.
If there is a larger remodel or ground-up project we would be happy to learn more and see if it’s a good fit for Home Stewardship. We are experienced working as an Owner’s Rep choosing the right design-build team, project managing all phases of construction, and delivering a superior end product. But we have our niche and not every project is a good fit.
