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.

Kitchen Remodeling and How to Design a Kitchen Backsplash in Mountain View, CA & Surrounding Areas

When you are planning your kitchen remodeling project, the backsplash is an important detail to remember. From the many styles, colors, and designs, there is a lot to think about when designing the perfect kitchen backsplash look for your kitchen. Here are some tips on features to think about.

What is a Kitchen Backsplash?

You might not know the name of it, but you will recognize this as soon as it is described. A backsplash is the material or design that runs along the wall behind your counter in the kitchen. It literally protects the wall from accidents or any splatters in the kitchen and is an easy to clean surface.


There are many different materials or designs of kitchen backsplashes to choose from:

  • Decorative Tiles
  • Glass Tiles
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Stainless Steel
  • Peel and Stick
  • Ceramic Tiles
  • Porcelain Tiles
  • Stone Tiles
  • Marble Tiles
  • Wallpaper

Depending on your creative goals, you can use tiles that are rounded, rectangular, square, or virtually any shape to create your backsplash. You can also purchase entire sheets of them for easy installation. These peel and stick varieties are cheaper and come in many different colors and patterns, perfect for DIY but they do not last longer than their natural tile counterparts. If you go with regular wallpaper or chalkboard paint behind your counters, but this will not protect your wall from any cooking messes.

How to Install a Kitchen Backsplash

Clean and sand the wall where the kitchen backsplash will be installed. Work your way along the edge of the countertop first to make it flush then work upwards and out, away from the counter.

There are many backsplashes to choose from. Tie the kitchen together with the perfect theme or pick a color that pops. Whether you are going for usability or style, your project will be completed in no time once you follow our tips. Get ready to enjoy your whole new kitchen right away.
