Our Home Maintenance and Modifications (HMM) service, established in 1987, offers a broad range of services which help people live safely at home.  Our trusted local team is highly experienced and professional, and takes pride in delivering a high standard of workmanship.

Who is it for?

We can solve your access issues both inside and outside the home, such as:

  • Completing minor bathroom modifications
  • Installing internal and external handrails
  • Replacing stairs or steps with ramps

The team can also take care of your general maintenance jobs around the home such as minor:

  • Carpentry work, including door and window maintenance
  • Electrical work such as changing light globes and maintaining smoke alarms
  • Plumbing work eg. replacing tap washers, fixing running toilets and installing hand-held showers
  • Concrete repair work
  • Pressure cleaning of paths

Why choose us?

Where there are bigger or more complex jobs requiring a qualified electrician or plumber, we can link you to well-trusted local tradesmen with whom we have been working for many years.

These services are currently available in the local government areas of Lane Cove, Mosman, North Sydney, and Willoughby.  We are funded by the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) which means we can offer a low-cost service with subsidised rates available by negotiation.
