24 Hour / Preventative Maintenance

Our company eliminates the need to call a general handyman, a plumber, an electrician, a carpenter, a painter or any other specialist you may need to maintain your rental/investment property. We provide all property maintenance services to you 24 hours a day! We are committed to providing high-quality, timely and professional services.

Deca Realty Company employs a full-time, well-trained maintenance staff, allowing us to handle almost every maintenance need. In order to protect employees and property owners, Deca carries worker's compensation and general liability insurance. This separates us from many of our lower cost competitors.

When projects arise that require specialized training, such as roof replacement, the work is often sub-contracted. Deca maintains a list of qualified, reputable contractors for all types of work. We foster a strong relationship with many contractors, which in turn, results in better pricing and more timely service. When work is completed by a sub-contractor, Deca charges 10% above the contract price to help defray the cost of our manager's and staff's time in meeting with contractors.

Our maintenance staff is available 24-hous a day / 7-days a week to handle emergencies. For after-hour call outs, (between the hours of 6 pm and 6 am, Monday through Friday and all day Saturday, Sunday and holidays) a $25 service call fee is assessed plus a 50% hourly rate surcharge for the service provided. Our property managers make every effort to assess the urgency of the tenant's situation and to keep emergency call-outs to a minimum.

Landlord shall be responsible to maintain heating, ventilating, roof, windows, plumbing, air conditioning, and electrical systems, except that Tenant shall pay for all repairs caused by the negligent or willful conduct of Tenant or Tenant's family or guests or Damage or excessive repair costs (beyond ordinary wear and tear) caused by Tenants abusive or excessive utilization of systems or by machinery or equipment outside ordinary household use.
