|A couple articles about marking. http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/dogs/tips/prevent_urine_marking .html
As it's territorial behavior, keep an eye out for anything that may be activating those instincts, such as something/someone new in the house. Having him altered may or may not fix the problem on it's own, it works a lot of the time but it depends on on the dog. Make sure you have an enzymatic cleaner to get rid of any trace of his urine on the places he goes.
I think constant supervision is really your best bet for now, so you can watch for signals that he is about to go. As soon as you suspect he is going to go, or see him start, try to get him outside. If you miss it it's too late to do any kind of correcting. It probably goes without saying, but there's no point trying to punish him for it. Crate him when nobody is able to watch him.
