Homeowner's Maintenance Manual: Painting Mobile App

The Homeowner's Maintenance Manual: Painting mobile app is an easy-to-use resource to help homeowners maintain their homes. A home is the greatest investment a person can make. Homes that are safe and comfortable should stay that way, but every day wear and tear must be addressed. Homes which are well maintained, make the neighborhood look good and when the neighborhood looks good, people want to live there. The app covers why paint, when to paint, what colors to use, what kind of paint to use and how much to buy, cost, tools needed and after you paint. This app can take a Multi-Line Text Field and add it to the body of an email.
