If you’ve lived in your house for a long time, there is a good chance that you are very familiar with all the nooks and crannies both inside and outside. You know exactly where to step to summon that creak in the hardwood floor, and you know when and how to turn the handle on the bathroom door to make sure that it clicks into place and closes for privacy. The same is true for the outside of your home, especially when it comes to older frames. If you’ve lived there for years than you know how to measure your footsteps when going up or down the porch steps so that you don’t trip and fall on your face, and you know the certain areas of your backyard that give way and are more uneven than the rest of the yard.
