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.

How to Use a Caulk Gun

Tips for Using a Caulk Gun to Help with Home Maintenance Projects for Your Sunnyvale Area Home

There are a lot of jobs around the house that need caulk guns, but they can be hard to use. Here, we’ll show you how to use caulk guns so that you can easily seal your home with them.

Using a caulk gun the wrong way can make your caulking jobs look bad and not be done. When you buy caulk, many brands come in tubes and tips that are made for a caulk gun. Is it any surprise that your job isn’t done right if you use the wrong tube for the tip or feed it into your gun wrong? These steps will help you make sure that every job you do with caulk is correct and clean.

  1. Load the Tube Correctly. It should be easy to put the tube into your caulk gun. If your kit comes with instructions, read them carefully. The most common mistake is to put the tube in upside down. This will make air bubbles in the tube, and you won’t be able to get a smooth flow of latex out of the tube.
  2. Insert the Tip Correctly. When you put the tip in, it should be in the back of the gun and have a little room to move. This is how it should be. You might be inserting it the wrong way or too far into the gun if some of the tip comes out.
  3. Feed It In. A steady stream of caulk is much easier to remove than one that spills all over the place. With your finger, you’re going to push your caulk all over your work surface if you keep doing it (not as messy as a mess of old caulk, but still messy).
  4. Work a Clean Up. A piece of old cloth, like an old T-shirt, can be used to scoop up any extra caulk that is still in the tube and put it back in the tube.
