A long-time reader send me the a note saying, “So we bought a modern home. Now we have to care for it….” As many of us now know, taking care of a modern home presents a unique set of challenges. Most of the home repair industry is geared towards maintenance and easy customization of suburban cut-cutter homes.
So this thread is for you to make comments on local Austin tradesman and companies that you would have work on your modern home. As the reader said, “Where do we find folks to polish and reseal the concrete floors? Someone to climb up onto the metal roof? Someone to examine the leaky storefront windows and doors? To patch the settling cracks in the Hardie boards? To level the pocket doors? To climb up three stories to change the recessed light bulbs?”
I start it off in the comments with a few people of mine own. Once we have a nice collection, I’ll sort through and add new pages to the Resource section.
