Dear Valued Customer,

Handyman Connection of Mountain View is committed to providing the highest quality services to our customers. We know that our customers have a choice, and we are grateful for your continued partnership.

For the past several years, Handyman Connection of Mountain View has been absorbing processing and transaction fees related to payments made by credit card. Unfortunately, our costs for credit card acceptance have continued to rise. Credit card rates have continued to skyrocket over the last few years, and more and more credit cards are run with the card not present (phone transactions, etc.). “Card not present” transactions also increase the rate we are charged. The use of credit cards to pay bills has also increased significantly.

Effective April 1, 2023, we will begin adding a 3% convenience fee for all credit card payments. The fee with be added to payments made with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover to offset the fees charged by the card companies. In accordance with credit card network rules, Handyman Connection of Mountain View cannot profit from this fee, and it does not exceed our expenses associated with accepting credit card payments.

Payments made by check, electronic payment (ACH/EFT), wire, or debit card will not be charged the convenience fee.

We thank you for your understanding as we implement this fee and offset some of the increased inflationary costs we are all incurring. We are happy to work with you on alternate payment options.

The Top Upgrades For Your Home’s Exterior

When it comes to a home’s exterior, there is a lot of talk about the importance of curb appeal. While curb appeal is important, it is not the only consideration a homeowner needs to make when it comes to exterior upgrades. You can contact one of the experts at Handyman Connection of Mountain View to get a reliable quote on exterior upgrades to your home, and you can also consider upgrades of your own that will add value and comfort to your property.


A front porch looks great on any property, but a front porch with columns has a regal look to it. It does not matter how high the roof is on your porch, there is always room for columns. If you are considering building a new porch or remodeling your current one, then be sure to include a few columns in your design.

Stone Walkways

Most homes have concrete walkways that serve a purpose, but they don’t offer any character for the home. Instead of concrete, you should consider designing and installing a stone walkway instead. You can find an expert at Handyman Connection of Mountain View who can give you a walkway with color, character and plenty of curb appeal.

Decorative Trim

There is a wide variety of exterior trim options that you can use on your porch, on your back deck and even at the peak of your roof. Exterior trim serves the same purpose as interior trim in that it enhances the look of your home, but exterior trim tends to have a much larger visual impact than interior trim.

Landscape Elements

Have you ever considered building a garden that has a small bench you can sit on to get away from the world? How about putting a display in your front yard that has a lighted fountain at its center? You do not need to do a comprehensive landscaping project to make  a big impact. Sometimes the best looks are created by small and well-placed elements that give the right effect.

A New Front Door

A new front door can change the entire look of your home both inside and outside. If you have a standard front door right now with a couple of small windows, then consider installing a larger front door that includes side windows. You can also consider a new front door that has a half-circle window over the top of it to get the maximum effect. The only way to really know how much of a difference a new door can make is to have one installed and see the difference for yourself.


Decorative shutters that are always open are not for every house, but they are very effective decor elements for homes with the right look. A colonial home or a home with a rustic design would benefit from having decorative shutters installed. These are done purely for decoration, but they can enhance your curb appeal and even help to raise your home’s property value.

Sometimes a home exterior upgrade is done for practical reasons, and other times it is done to add a new look to a home. It does not take much for a small renovation project to make a home look brand new, especially when that project is done on the outside of the home. Consider your options and then start planning some home exterior upgrades that will have a maximum impact on your neighborhood and your property value.
