OAKLAND, Calif., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Glasshouse, the premier proactive home maintenance service based in the San Francisco Bay Area, today announces its expansion into Orinda and Lafayette. This new service area is a sign of the growing need for preventative home maintenance and of the value people see in taking the time to care for their home to preserve and add value to its financial worth. Earlier this Spring, Glasshouse launched its services to homeowners in Oakland, Piedmont and Berkeley.
"We officially launched Glasshouse in March of this year and we're excited to share that in just a few months, we're expanding and growing tremendously," said Shannon Bloemker, CEO and Founder of Glasshouse. "We love teaching people about how preventative home care can keep homes safe and healthy, while also preserving their long-term value. Our expansion to Orinda and Lafayette shows that people are excited to have help caring for their most valuable investment."
While most homeowners are familiar with home warranties and on-demand services, Glasshouse plans to continue educating people about the benefits of preventative home maintenance by routinely assessing and addressing systems, appliances, infrastructure and more. Glasshouse is the first of its kind, and is making the home maintenance process easier and more transparent for everyone involved (hence, the name Glasshouse). Glasshouse customers look at it as a way to prevent a costly disaster before it happens and an opportunity to rest worry-free from home maintenance issues.
"For less than you probably spend on coffee each month, your home will have someone checking in and maintaining the working components regularly," said Julie Gardner, Realtor. "All of our homes need attention and Glasshouse helps avoid a much costlier repair down the road – in other words, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
