Handyman Services

I have cracked or missing tiles – can you help with that?

Yes! The grout in your tile floors, as well as in and around showers, tubs, and sinks can develop cracks or have pieces become loose or fall out. Our experienced handyman team can replace tile or re-grout areas that need attention. We can also obtain proposals to clean and polish your Travertine or other stone floors.

Can you repair and service my home’s hot water heater?

If you have not had your hot water tank(s) drained and flushed within the last year, contact us to schedule service. Regular preventative maintenance not only can extend the life of the
tank(s), but also allows the unit to operate more efficiently. If your service cabinet platform is in
need of repair or replacement we can also assist with this task.

Can you inspect and repair my home’s heating & air conditioning system?

If you are not on a regular HVAC service program, we can help with scheduled HVAC equipment maintenance. We will clean/replace filters, check blower belts, temperatures, and duct and plenum connections. We will also clean condensation lines and condenser areas.

Do you offer exterior painting services?

Yes. We offer painting for exterior walls, garage doors, & entry gates. The scorching summer sun and desert weather amplify the need to protect and preserve the exterior of your desert home. Experts recommend implementing an exterior home preventative maintenance treatment at least every 5-8 years. It is also recommended to have yearly operational maintenance service inspections for your garage doors.

Can you install or replace weatherproofing around windows or doors?

Heat or cooling loss through openings and cracks can be costly. Premier Residential Services can
replace or install energy saving weather stripping, as well as caulk around doors and windows.
In addition, the weather stripping on garage and golf cart doors can be replaced. These small steps will not only save on energy consumption, but also reduce the amount of dust and sand entering your home.

Outdoor cleaning can include: Window cleaning, patio cleaning, garages, utility closets, and trash areas.

How much does your house cleaning service cost?

Yes! Our special cleaning services include: Carpet & Upholstered Furniture Cleaning, Pool/Spa/Fountain Cleaning, and BBQ Grill Deep Cleaning & Starter Maintenance.
