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.

Professional Tips on How to Choose an Exterior Paint Color in Sunnyvale, CA & Surrounding Areas

Fresh exterior paint for your home is a great way to improve its curb appeal, give it a whole new look, and even increase the value of your home. Whether you are preparing for selling, are deeply spring cleaning, or want a new look, here are ways you can choose the right paint for you. Here are some tips on how you can choose the right exterior paint and learn a little about the process.

Painting your home is important to keep up with its normal maintenance and the overall health of a home. The weather, wind, sunshine, and more can all wear down on your house. New paint can help you patch up, make repairs, and keep everything sealed against the elements.

Tools to Paint Your Home

  • Caulk Gun
  • Small Containers for Paint
  • Paint Cans
  • Paint Brushes
  • Drop-Cloths
  • Multi-purpose Painter’s Tool
  • Putty Knife
  • Rollers
  • Roller Extensions
  • Roller Tray
  • A-frame Ladder
  • Latex Paint or Oil-Based Paint

When you choose latex VS oil-based paint, there are a few differences to know. For example, oil-based paint is a harsher paint. It is great for painting high-traffic areas such as stairs or porches. It can be used for cast-iron railing whereas Latex should not be. Latex paint is great for all other projects especially since it does not give off VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and can be cleaned up easily with paint thinner.

Exterior Paint Prep

  1. Clean the exterior of your home and pressure wash.
  2. Scrape off loose or old peeling paint.
  3. Fill holes with caulk and patch cracks to seal.
  4. For longevity of your paint job, apply a layer of primer.
