Proactive Maintenance & Inspections

Proactive maintenance & inspections. 


Report of work completed and recommendations

For less than the cost of a coffee per day, our Essentials Service Plan proactively covers the essential inspections and maintenance critical to the long term health, efficiency, safety and value of your home.* As an added bonus, our pros will also assist with small to-do list items, (think tightening a leaky faucet or hanging a picture) and will take an inventory of larger to-do list items and work with you to complete them in a timely manner.

Following every visit, plan members receive a report with photographs and detailed information about the work completed and any inspections that were done. If additional work is recommended, ie. we notice loose shingles or a cracked dryer vent, we will outline it in your report and assist you in completing the work when you choose to have it done.
