Maintenance-Free Homes! What's Included?

Right now you may be asking, exactly what is a maintenance-free home? Our maintenance-free home-types include townhomes, paired villas, single family villas, and condominiums. All homes do require yearly maintenance by the home owner and you should always follow a scheduled checklist of seasonal items for both the exterior and interior of your home. The good news is the exterior materials of your new Olthof Home were selected to provide years of lasting durability to minimize the required upkeep. And with a maintenance-free home, we have alleviated some of that additional work, so you can focus on enjoying life!
