Yesterday Tim came quickly to repair our bathroom pocket door after we called SandStar for help with this repair. We just want to say that he is a gem.  He is very professional, discusses the scope of work, is very neat and tidy and does excellent work. Thank you for employing such a wonderful person.

Home Maintenance Program

What is our Home Maintenance Program?

Just as your vehicle needs preventative maintenance to run efficiently and to help avoid the stress and cost of major issues, so does your new or existing home. Think of these as “health check-ups” as we will address items that need attention monthly, semi-annually and annually, that are not covered by a warranty but necessary to keep your home running properly.

More than a Home Watch Service.

Under the SandStar Home Maintenance Program, we can offer more than a typical home watch service because we go beyond only checking for issues as we will also start the process to address and fix them.

Home or away, you need a company you can trust and with the experience needed to properly care for and maintain one of your most valuable assets; your home.

Contact us for your free assessment. We will come to your home and review all the items you want maintained and / or require maintenance. You pick and choose which items and the frequency.

Your personal SandStar Home Maintenance Plan will be tailored to suit YOUR needs. Call (941) 637-8080 or fill out the contact form below.
