Home Maintenance Service

As well as our Call Service HomeLink also offers a basic handyman, home maintenance service. The maintenance service caters for the home and garden of members. We also assess the security needs of our members. This is done by supplying and installing safety and security measures and devices.

What we CAN DO

We carry out small repair and maintenance jobs in our members homes.

We install hand and stair rails, security lighting and Security Devices. Anything that takes no more than about two hours work, we are happy to help with. From March onwards (weather permitting) we undertake gardening work, with the aim of getting your garden ready in the Spring, and tidied up at the end of Summer. Please give at least two weeks notice for appointments.

(Please Note: There is a 2 hour time limit on each job).

What we DON'T DO

Although we are fortunate to have a skilled maintenance team, some jobs fall outside our areas of expertise, or are simply too large for us to accomplish in our two hour time-frame. For example we do not undertake to perform major plumbing work, boiler repair, exterior house painting, tree surgery, or to clean windows above ground level. We can supply you with the names of Garda vetted contractors who will be happy to undertake these tasks for you.

Additional costs

We have to pass on some costs we incur to our members.  These include: any materials we purchase for your particular job, such as weed-killer, skip bags, paint, and the disposal of green waste.

Our maintenance team

A Maintenance Team usually consists of two people. They are fully insured and Garda vetted. We do not charge for the team's labour, but only ask that the cost of materials is covered. Donations are kindly accepted.  A donation is what you can afford.
