Important Announcement to Our Valued Customers!


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.

Choosing The Right Countertop Material

Picking the most attractive countertop material is already hard enough, and that’s before you consider durability, maintenance, and your lifestyle. Fortunately, if you understand your options, you can eventually narrow down the best choice for your kitchen. Handyman Connection of Mountain View discusses the features and benefits of the top three countertop materials on the market:


Granite is a great choice for homeowners who put a premium on beauty. This natural stone is among the most eco-friendly materials with excellent strength and durability. It also enhances the good looks of rustic kitchen cabinets. Additionally, granite is a smart choice for kitchens because they are highly resistant to scratches and heat damage. If you prefer investing in products that last a long time, then granite is for you.


Unlike granite, quartz doesn’t need to be sealed as it’s already non-porous, making it resistant to stains and bacteria. It’s fairly low-maintenance, requiring only a damp cloth and mild cleaner when dirty. It has a tough and durable surface that comes in a wide selection of colors, patterns, textures and finishes. If you’re willing to pay more for low-maintenance and durability, you can’t go wrong with quartz.


Countertops don’t always have to be expensive to be well-made, and laminate confirms this. It offers excellent durability and versatility at an affordable price. Laminate also has a poreless, solid surface that makes it extremely low maintenance and less likely to harbor harmful germs. This feature makes it perfect for moisture-prone areas like the kitchen and the bathroom.

If one–or none–of these suit your preferences, you can consult Handyman Connection of Mountain View. We can offer you suggestions along with quality home maintenance and remodeling services. Contact us today at (650) 695-1400 to get an estimate.
