Let’s face it – owning a home is a lot of work. Any Barrhaven homeowner will tell you that home maintenance is an ongoing and sometimes demanding task.
Yes, we’re a pretty much a community of DIY enthusiasts and amateur home renovators; a quick trip to the Barrahven Home Depot or Canadian Tire will confirm this. But sooner or later, you’ll need professional help with tasks such a plumbing, electrical work or even landscaping.
We wanted to create a one-stop shop to help you find home renovation and maintenance professionals who offer services to residents of the Barrhaven community. The directory currently lists local service providers in the following fields:
Blind, Shutter and Window Covering Providers
Snow Removal Services
Flooring and Carpeting Services
Home Heating and Cooling
Roof Repairs and Replacements
Door and Window Replacement
Interlock Pathways and Patios
Home Staging and Decor Services
Home Renovations and General Contracting
Residential Property Management
The directory currently lists several dozen local service providers – with more being added every week! We also expect to add new service categories as the directory expands.
We must stress that this is a directory and not a review site – therefore it remains important to always research any contractor you intend to hire, and preferably verify their standing with the Ottawa Better Business Bureau.
Additionally, it’s important to do your homework before undertaking any home renovation project – whether you perform the work yourself, or hire an external contractor. We recommend consulting The Canadian Consumer Handbook – their guide provides useful information on how to negotiate with independent contractors.
