In the olden days, you might have turned to neighbors to ask about the most humane bee remover or least intrusive roof repairer. Nowadays you likely start by searching online, at places like Angie’s List, Service Magic, or even the Berkeley Parents Network.
But there’s nothing like asking a trusted someone. The North Hills Community Association (NCHA) has an open forum, where locals share all kinds of topics, ask for advice and get responses quickly. With so many recommendations, the group recently decided to issue their handy service providers list.
Check out the wide range of service providers:
Air Conditioning (Portable), Appliances, Arborist, Auto Repair, Awnings, Bees, Bookkeeping, Cable & Wiring, Carpet Cleaning, Caterer, Chair Caning, Chimney Sweep, Chiropractor, Contractor, Dentist, Dog Trainer or Walker, Drain Cleaning, Drainage, Dryer Duct Cleaning, Elderly Living, Electrician, Elevator Repair, Energy Audit, Exterminator, Fence Builder, Furnace, Garage Doors, Gardener, Gutters, Handyman, Hardwood Floors, House Cleaner, Insurance Broker, Internet, Landscaper, Leak Specialist, Mailboxes, Movers, OB/GYN, Painter, Paving, PC Repair, Pest Control, Pet Care, Plumber, Roofer, Sewing Machine Repair, Shingles, Skylight Repair, Solar Heating or Panels, Structural Pest Inspector, Tile, Transportation (Airport), Upholstery, Veterinarian, Welder, Window Cleaning, Window Replacement and Windshields.
While this service provider list isn’t comprehensive, it seems very useful. These recommendations have been made by your neighbors, who also offer color commentary about their experiences. We like the altrustic and ever-changing nature of this list, too.
If you have any requests, then please join the Open Forum here — and trust the answers.
