At Copper Basin, excellence is doing the right things very well over and over. We build more than homes. We build communities – and we build them with your family in mind. Contact us today and discover how easy it can be to make a Copper Basin home yours.
Copper Basin Construction, Inc. has constructed your home with carefully selected materials and the effort of experienced craftsmen and laborers under the supervision of our field personnel, with the administrative support of our office personnel. Although this group works from detailed plans and specifications, no two homes are exactly alike. Each one is unique; a home is one of the last hand-built products left in the world. Over time, each behaves differently.
Although quality materials and workmanship have been used in creating your home, just like a fine automobile or boat, it requires care from the first day. Regular homeowner maintenance is essential to providing a quality home for a lifetime. This section as well as your Homeowner Manual was assembled to assist you in that effort.
Keep your new Copper Basin home running smoothly and looking great by following the maintenance schedule below and outlined in your home owner manual.
