Homeowner Needs
Let’s face it, managing a family home is no walk in the park, many things can and do go wrong. If you are at the start of your property ownership journey, you have come to the right place, as we outline a few essential services that you will have to use at some point in the future.

1. Plumbing Services

An emergency plumber is available around the clock; leaking pipes do not have a time schedule and can occur at any time. Choose a plumber who also unblocks drains and when you do call him out, he can power flush the drains while he is there. If you should experience a burst water pipe, turn off the water flow as soon as possible, then call the plumber and clear the area.
  • Routine Maintenance: Regular checks to prevent leaks, clogs, and other plumbing issues.
  • Emergency Repairs: Services are available 24/7 for urgent issues like burst pipes or severe leaks.
  • Installation Services: Professional installation of appliances such as water heaters, dishwashers, and washing machines.

2. Cleaning Services

  • Regular Cleaning: Professional cleaning services for routine housekeeping to maintain a clean and healthy home.
  • Deep Cleaning: Periodic deep cleaning services for areas that require more intensive cleaning, such as carpets, upholstery, and windows.
  • Specialized Cleaning: Services for specific needs, such as post-renovation cleaning, move-in/move-out cleaning, and allergy/asthma cleaning.

3. Landscaping and Lawn Care Services

  • Gardening contractor: Most people need more time to keep their garden in check, which is why we have garden maintenance contractors who are happy to add you to their list of clients. They provide a comprehensive service, removing all green waste and leaving your yard looking good. The typical package would involve weekly visits, pruning, mowing the lawn, edging, weeding the flower beds, and a little tree work when required – a couple of hours for a team to thoroughly tidy up the front and back garden – perfect for those weekend parties.
  • Maintenance: Regular mowing, trimming, and fertilizing to keep the lawn healthy and attractive.
  • Design and Installation: Professional landscaping and installation of plants, trees, and garden features.

4. Electrical Services

  • Electrician – Never mess with electricity unless you happen to know what you are doing; Google can quickly locate a local electrician, and the sooner you form a relationship, the better. If, for any reason, your power goes down, first check that you are the only home without electricity, then call in your local electrician who has the know-how and resources to sort everything out.
  • Inspections and Maintenance: Regular electrical inspections to prevent potential hazards.
  • Repairs and Upgrades: Fixing faulty wiring and circuit breakers and upgrading electrical panels to handle modern load requirements.
  • Installation: Adding new outlets, lighting fixtures, and home automation systems.

5. Roofing Services

  • Roofing contractor – The roof is the most critical component of your home; it is also the one place you can’t see from the ground, which is why you need a roof inspection every few months. Storm damage is typical; if you have large trees overhanging the roof, leaves can cause blocked guttering. The contractor would issue you with a detailed written report on every aspect of the roof, plus he would recommend proactive strategies such as covering the tiles with a silicone coating that prolongs the life of your roof.
  • Inspections: Regular roof inspections to identify and address potential issues before they become serious problems.
  • Repairs: Fixing leaks, damaged shingles, and other roofing issues promptly.
  • Replacement: Professional replacement of old or damaged roofs to ensure home protection and energy efficiency.
