Home Maintenance Plan
Quarterly Maintenance and Inspection Plan
A Handyman Co Maintenance Plan is designed to completely ‘maintain’ a home from top-to-bottom, inside-
and-out. It covers all home maintenance which is defined as the observation, reporting, adjusting, cleaning,
lubricating, tightening and general servicing that is needed to keep functional home items operating
according to their intended use. Every maintenance plan begins with a comprehensive inspection to
categorize the type of fixtures you have so that A Handyman Co will have a knowledge database of all the
types of fixtures and appliances that are in your home. This allows our technician to bring with them the
correct parts at the time of the quarterly visits. Saves time for the homeowner and gives the technician
more time to maintain your home. This includes general maintenance such as replacing heating filters,
removing leaves from gutters once a year, tightening and adjusting faucets and showerheads, small
repairs to walls and floors, and more. We take a quick look at the rest of your home every quarter so we can
head off any major repairs. Major repairs or remodels are scheduled and quoted separately.
Give us a call, or contact us through our website and we’d be happy to send you more information
describing exactly what is covered by a Home Care Maintenance Program.
Who are typical users of a Home Care Maintenance Plan?
Many of our customers fall into one of the following categories:
Busy individuals / Professionals / Senior citizens / or people who do not have the time, interest, or skills to
maintain their home, or would simply rather be doing other more enjoyable things in life. Home Care
Maintenance Services provides an option that has never before existed... the option to outsource home
maintenance to professionals who are solely dedicated to the single competency of residential
maintenance. The Home Care Program is a way to hand over much of your ‘To-do’ list to professionals who
are happy to do it for you.
Seniors who would like to stay in their own home but are at a point in life where they’re ready to let
someone else deals with the physical demands of maintaining their home.
Children of Aging Parents will often purchase a Home Care Maintenance Program for their parents. A
Home Care Maintenance Plan is a way to ensure that the home is being properly maintained while
providing a healthy and safe environment for aging parents. What a great way to give back to your parents
for all they have done for you! And the care-giving children don’t have to give up their time, evenings and
weekends maintaining their parent’s home. A Home Care plan provides a much-needed solution for aging seniors,
especially in those situations where the care-giving children have relocated to different parts of the
country or world, and their parents need some help taking care of their home.
Single Parent Households and Surviving Spouses are also common users of the A Home Care Maintenance
Program for many of the same reasons mentioned above. The time, physical ability, skills, and tools
needed to properly maintain a home can be daunting for many. This can be especially true for single
parents and surviving spouses.
Builders, Realtors, and other Home-sellers use A Home Care Maintenance Program as a ‘sales incentive’
a tool to help differentiate their properties and promote sales.
A Home Care Plan makes a great gift for that busy spouse who is well-intended but never seems to be
able to find the time to keep up with the home ‘to-do list. Just about everybody would be thrilled to get a
year or two off from the home maintenance chores.
Being able to provide our customers that most precious gift of extra time or a solution to a difficult
problem in life are some of the greatest joys we receive at A Handyman Co.
If you find a need for a major repair, do you perform the repair work?
If we find an existing problem in your home that would need more time, we will let you know of the damage
and what it would take to repair or replace it. You can then have us schedule the work to be done by us or
you can get another contractor of your choosing. Our hourly rates are $75 but as a member, you get 10% off
our labor ($68). Before you have us do the work for you, we recommend that you get a second opinion from
another contractor. One of our goals at The Handyman Co is to act as your trusted advisor on all matters
concerning the maintenance of your home. In this way our customers gain confidence and trust in the
repairs recommended by A Handyman Co, and we get to operate in a manner that is truly in the best
interest of our customers.
Does someone need to be home during the service call?
No. It is not necessary for anyone to be at home during a quarterly service call. A Handyman Co will
contact you to set up appointment times and methods of access in advance. A Handyman Co representative
will always confirm the visit within 48 hours before the scheduled appointment. At this time you can also
let them know of any concerns you wish for them to address during the visit if time permits.
How much does the service cost?
Every Plan starts with an inspection. If you have had an inspection from another vendor when you bought
your home, we can work with that. Or you can have us look at your home and give you a detailed
explanation of what we find. This usually takes 2.5 to 3.5 hours. About $187.50 to $262.50. Home Care
Maintenance program costs only $55.00 per month. This gives you a two-hour quarterly maintenance visit.
Two hours every three months!
Are there any other fees?
Only if we have to buy the materials for you. Caulking, heater filters, insulation, washers for faucets, and
more. We will let you know what is needed for our next visit and you can either choose to get it yourself or
have us pick up the supplies. If the repairs are more of a concern and need to be addressed before our next
visit, we will talk this over with you and take whatever action you want us to. Unscheduled visits are at $65
an hour minus the 10% member-discounted hours.
What do you cover during these seasonal visits?
Check and clean gutters. Remove hose bib covers. Power wash deck your porch (if time permits). Check
for leaks around the windows and under your sinks and toilets.
Caulk around windows and doors if needed. This usually needs to be done every 3 years. Apply moss killer
on roof and sidewalks if needed. Check hot water heater for pressure and leaks. Inspect bathrooms. Re-
caulk showers and tubs as needed. This should be done every 3 years.
Check and clean gutters and downspouts. Cover outdoor water bibs. Clean and vacuum home heating
units, wall or floor mounted and forced air. If forced air we will test for efficiency and clean and adjust the
unit accordingly. Change or clean heating filters as needed.
This is the time when we take care of your “Honey-Do” list. At this point, your house is already set for the
winter. Now is the time to take care of those little nagging projects. Loose hinges on the doors, creaking
stairways, loose cabinets, dripping faucets, replacing loud bathroom fans, replace bad garbage disposals
Each home is different. We may have other items that you may want to have us take care of such a clean
slippery dock, power wash patios, hang Christmas lights and take them down, and so on. We can make a
schedule just for your home and design it to fit your needs.
Usually, after the first two seasonal visits, there is enough time to take care of those “To-Do” list items
during the next two visits. Also, you can add those 2 winter hours to longer projects in your home such as
bathroom remodeling, adding new wall dividers and so on. You paid for the time, use it as you wish!.
We also have weekly programs and Monthly programs available
Weekly designed for lawn care, garden care, snow removal. Weekly and Monthly programs simply more
time you have to enjoy life while we do the chores.
