Repair Cost Estimates and Life Expectancy

Average cost of home repairs

This is a list of the estimated costs to upgrade or replace the major systems and components in a typical home. It also provides a general guideline for the life-expectancies of those systems.   All estimates reflect the average basic costs for supplies and installation of building materials in United States but costs may vary depending on regions,  pgrades, complexity and disposal fees.   This is why we recommend that you obtain at least three quotes from licensed Florida Contractors.
