When is the best time to get my gutters cleaned? What kind of filters should I use in my furnace? How and when do I flush my water heater? Who do I call in an emergency? Do I have water, mold or termites damaging areas of my home? Am I doing everything I should to protect my family and keep them healthy?
Let’s face it. Your home did not come with an owner’s manual. Complete Home Maintenance has maintenance packages to meet the needs of every household.
All Complete Home Maintenance packages give you one number to call for all your home maintenance and repair needs. You also receive our 24 hour emergency number for any problems that may arise. Included in our maintenance packages is a periodic condition analysis of your home. This allows us to find small problems and fix them before they become larger more costly problems. Houses today are not as easy to maintain as they were years ago. Homeowners these days do not have the tools, the time or the experience to properly care for today’s higher needs home.
Years of owning a construction and remodeling company have shown me that many of the high cost repairs homeowners pay for out of their pocket could have been avoided with routine maintenance and inspections.
We are more than just a company here to fix your problems.
We are here to help you avoid them in the first place.
Complete Home Maintenance’s comprehensive maintenance packages allow you to protect your home, your family and your investments. We make caring for your home simple and affordable. Before today you would have to call several different companies, get estimates, check references and insurance information. Now we personally maintain and repair your home and we are there 24/7 for any problems that may arise.
Through our Annual Maintenance Plans, we will maintain your home for you with regular visits throughout the year. We take care of general maintenance and perform routine inspections, keeping your house — and your family — healthy. If we find that a repair is required, you are referred to one of our pre-qualified service providers.
