5 Essential Contractors you need to have in a Homeowners Association

Although you moved into a home that is part of an Association, you’re responsible for dealing with appliance failures, broken fixtures, clogged toilets, and the many other problems that go wrong in a house. Unless you’re a master of house repair and can do it all to code, you need experienced local contractors who can quickly address any issues to keep things running smoothly.


Choosing Your Contractors

You want dependable contractors who are knowledgeable and licensed in their particular specialty. Licensed contractors are also required to hold full insurance so you’re protected if something goes wrong on the job. Certain jobs may require a permit before you hire a contractor.

To find reputable contractors, use the Acri Preferred Service Providers List.  We take out all of the searching and worry for you.

Many of our providers are offering Acri Homeowner Discounts. Another amazing benefit to our Acri Homeowners.


Acri Community Realty has created the Home and Appliance Protection Program. Our home protection plan is a renewable service contract that covers the repair or replacement of many of the most frequently occurring breakdowns of appliances, heating and cooling units, water, sewer and gas lines.

5 Essential Contractors (Click on any items below to view)

  1. Electrician — You don’t want to poke your hands into the electrical system if you don’t have the proper training. Find a licensed and experienced electrician when your tenant has problems with their outlets, power output, breakers going out on a consistent basis, and other issues related to the electrical system in the property.
  2. HVAC Technician — HVAC, or heating, ventilation, and air conditioning technicians, take care of furnaces, air conditioning units, and duct work on your property. The last thing you want is for the furnace to give out when it’s below 0 during the winter, and that’s certainly the last thing the tenant wants to deal with.
  3. General Handyman — Some repairs don’t require any particular specialty skill, so a general handyman fits the bill well. These jacks-of-all-trades fix the little things around the house, like broken fixtures and creaky doors. If you’re not the best at do-it-yourself projects, make sure you have a professional handyman on speed dial.
  4. Landscaper — You want curbside appeal with your single family home, but if you don’t have a green thumb bring in a gardener and lawn crew to maintain the yards, landscaping, and plants around your properties.
  5. Plumbers — A good plumbing contractor service is well worth the expense. Getting those pesky clogs and faucets replaced not only saves you aggravation but money on your water bills as well. And let’s face it,  there are some jobs you just don’t want to tackle.
