Your Personal Home Manual ~ Connect To Expertise And Answers To Everything Home

Welcome To The Service Guide

Much like parenthood, homeownership doesn't come with a manual to help guide you through all the responsibilities that you immediately acquire once you've purchased a home. Getting good at navigating your way through them is typically learned as you go.

Think of The Service Guide as your personal home manual where you can get answers to your home related inquiries, learn what you need to know about projects and repairs encompassing more than 300 service categories.  Plus connect to local RESIDENT EXPERT service providers for answers and solutions when you need help.

Created in 2004, The Service Guide has become one of the best and trusted resources consumers across the U.S. turn to first for reliable, helpful information that makes homeownership just that much easier!
