Sunshine Ace Hardware expanded its Ace Handyman Services of Southwest Florida to cover a larger section of residential communities while also introducing household services, including “aging in place” modifications for older adults.
Ace Handyman Services completes in-home residential projects like bathroom and kitchen repairs, as well as refreshes for bedrooms, home offices, dining rooms and living rooms. Popular services include home maintenance projects, such as installing wall TVs and ceiling fans, repairing lanai screens, painting, updating cabinets, drywall and general carpentry services.
Ace Handyman Services are now available to residents of the following communities through Sunshine Ace Hardware:
• Collier County: Naples, North Naples, East Naples, Lely, Golden Gate, Marco Island, Naples Park and Goodland.
• Lee County: Bonita Springs, Estero, San Carlos Park and Fort Myers.
“The response from homeowners after last year’s initial launch was overwhelmingly positive, so we expanded our service area to include additional neighborhoods across Southwest Florida,” said Michael Wynn, president of Sunshine Ace Hardware. “Not every homeowner is a DIYer, and even experienced DIYers know their limits. An Ace Handyman can essentially take your to-do list of household projects and make it happen.”
One feature is Ace Handyman’s “Aging in Place” program, a home modification service for older adults who want to remain safe and independent in their own homes as they age. Services include installing grab bars in the bathroom, lowering cabinets and countertops, constructing access ramps, installing railings and more.
Residential customers can book a handyman for half-day or full-day packages, so they are encouraged to keep a running project list to maximize their time.
“After Hurricane Ian, many contractors focused their attention on bigger commercial projects,” said Trent Stivers, general manager of Ace Handyman Services of SWFL. “Homeowners then turned to handymen for smaller jobs around the house, and unfortunately, some of them were unlicensed, uninsured individuals just looking for a ‘side hustle.’ Trust and experience are probably the two most important factors when choosing someone to work on your home.”
Ace-certified experts are licensed and bonded, multi-skilled craftsmen who have completed an extensive training program.
“An Ace Handyman Services of Southwest Florida handyman is a uniformed employee of Sunshine Ace Hardware,” Wynn said. “That gives customers peace of mind knowing the individual they’re inviting into their homes is just as committed to exemplary customer service and high professional standards as the Sunshine Ace employee working at their neighborhood store.”
