Home Watch

Weekly, Bi-Weekly and Monthly Monitoring Available

While away from your home, do you wonder about its condition?  Has the A/C quit working allowing humid, stagnant air to grow mold? Have pests found their way inside your house, or has a pipe burst, flooding your home undetected?

 

These are a few of the countless things that can go terribly wrong with your home, and if left undetected, can be catastrophic. We have an extensive Home Watch checklist to visually inspect the integrity of your home for obvious or potential problems. We use state-of-the-art home watch technology that notifies you when we have entered your home and sends you a detailed report complete with pictures once our inspection is complete. We also inspect any vendor work performed on your property, such as landscaping, pool maintenance and house cleaning. We are your eyes and ears while you are away to ensure work is being completed to the highest standards. In addition, we maintain a list of pre-screened vendors who are licensed, insured and guaranteed should you need a referral.

Every inspection includes up to 30 minutes of handyman service to correct problems on the spot at no additional charge.
