Home Maintenance Check - Not mandatory, just smart :)

 
Fortunately a Home Maintenance Check is not mandatory like the one for your car, but it does make sense. For example, to:

  • simply enable you to really enjoy your home, often your most precious possession
  • protect your home from moisture and decay problems by means of paintwork
  • to invest in your home while reducing your taxable capital in tax Box 3 before the end of the year
  • take advantage of the current low VAT rates on paint, plaster and wallpaper work
  •  
    Our experts are at your service throughout The Netherlands!
     

    Home Maintenance Check – urgent
