Your Handyman and Home Maintenance Program
Choose quarterly scheduled handyman and home maintenance services. We’ll bring our 14-point checklist designed to keep your home working properly. Just need a few things done? Call us for little fixes or special projects. We’re your on-call handyman, ready when you need us, or scheduled each quarter.
Home Maintenance Program
Everything on our checklist starts with fire, life and safety—and adds in other important services to maintain the health and value of your home. Reasonable pricing and a friendly concierge make it easy for you to get the “honey do” list—and more—done.
Hanging a picture, changing hard-to-reach light bulbs or adjusting the door that doesn’t close right—it’s frustrating when little things don’t get done. Our professional handyman will help with things you can’t do, or fixes that need to be handled before they become big repairs.
Window washing, driveway cleaning, yard clean-up or even house washing are available. We can help install lighting inside and out or clean out HVAC ducts. Now you have one number to call when you want to get things done around your home.
