ALL THINGS REPAIRED IS NOW OFFERING HOME WATCH SERVICES

Over the past several years we have been asked by many clients if we offer a Home Watch service. Up until now, we did not provide this. With 15+ years of providing home maintenance it makes sense to offer this to our clients. So by adding home watch, we offer a compete package. You only need to deal with one company which will simplify the upkeep of your home.

If you are looking for someone who will take care of and monitor your Florida home. All Things Repaired is the company. We are trustworthy, dependable, honest and can provide repairs needed.

While home watch seems like an easy and quick thing to do it does take experience, knowledge and skills. Skills that can help assess, trouble shoot, and correct the situations that occur in the most economical and efficient way possible. We not only monitor your home but we also provide information that helps you make an informed decision when maintenance is required.

We have over 30 years of property maintenance experience and excellent references. We carry liability insurance and have the abilities necessary to protect your home and keep it running properly. We can take care of minor fixes, help guide you thought the maze of major home upgrades as well as the those life altering catastrophes that sometimes happen.

Please See our Services page for what we offer and cost.

NOW NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE A “GUY” FOR REPAIRS BUT, YOU HAVE A “GUY” TO MONITOR YOUR HOME WHILE YOUR AWAY.

Dan is the Man and our friend!

This week instead of our “tools and tips” blog for home repair…..

Today I am writing about my freind Dan Bergen. Dan has been a good friend for over 20 years. We used to ride bicycles all over the northeast and Florida.
In a recent post we discussed what happens when the Repairman’s appliance breaks, but what about when the Repairman himself breaks…..Oh No! Fortunately, I have no issues myself. However, my good friend and valued Electrician has had a serious, life altering, year long struggle after being diagnosed with Rectal Cancer last summer. All the trade experience and knowledge developed over the years is of little value if the body gives out! Dan’s struggles began by simply noticing “stuff” simply didn’t look normal when he got up from the toilet for “the daily flush”, a morning ritual we all go through. Being the dedicated professional he is, business came first and he initially ignored the issue, The Jobs were more important! If I or anyone else called, he was always there! Dan was living a contractors dream life – 8 months on scenic Cape Cod, 4 months in sunny, South Florida…….And after all, with the exception of too many Happy Hours, our friend was leading a relatively healthy lifestyle – Chasing me up hills on our daily Sunday bike rides on Cape Cod – nothing could really be wrong! Eventually, common sense prevailed, and Dan put down the tool belt long enough for the dreaded visit to………”The Doctor”, something Everyone fears! What will he say?, What will he find? A Colonoscopy was performed and discovered a cancerous tumor in the Colon that had been growing for probably years. All those times Dan had put the customer first, he was now wishing he had put himself first! What follows next is Dan’s ongoing, year long odyssey thru the medical system trying to resolve this issue, all while continuing to provide electrical services for valued clients.
Recently Dan was told that all the chemo treatments and operations he went through the last year did not work. During this entire time Dan continured to work although not nearly has much as he had in the past. Recently I went to visit Dan for a week. I went with him to a job he was doing. There he was continuing to try to work with chemo ports, and 3 different bags collecting various bodily liquids. You might ask why is Dan working. Well first of all he has been self employed for over 15 years and he is also a very proud person and would not try to impose on anyone. I want everyone to know that any money raised will be to help Dan enjoy what life he has left along with uncovered medical expenses. He recently told me he did not want to go through chemo again. He is checking into some alternative treatments but, as we know these alternative treatments are not covered by insurance.
If you have an interest in helping Dan, you can go to the “gofundme” page I have started on his behalf.  I will continue to update but if you want to follow his story or donate, click on   www.gofundme.com  Thanks, Nick

Aging Safely with All things repaired

We all will reach a point when the years in our lives start to effect our abilities to perform everyday tasks. Something as simple as turning a door knob, opening a jar can become difficult. Getting in an out of the tub or shower turns into a dangerous adventure. When slipping and falling can be a life changing event.

I have had personal experience with the issues that come with growing older. I have witnessed my family members mature and loose some of those abilities. I have designed and managed several independent living facilities.

This made me think of all the things that could help keep a person independent and hopefully avoid a tragic event.

I know what to look for and how to alleviate the everyday hazards in a home. I can help you make your home a safe place. A place you can enjoy without the fear.

I am offering a free walk through to discuss the improvements for safety in your home. If you like, we can formulate a plan and I will provide the installation services you need.
