There’s an old saying “Don’t be penny wise and pound foolish”. This is a good reminder when it comes to finding someone to service your home. The cost of maintaining a home can be burdensome and too often a homeowner may look for a less expensive way to resolve an issue. However, hiring a less qualified person to service the problem or someone who may use parts of lesser quality can end up costing homeowners much more than they bargained for.
Choose wisely and call Cornerstone Pros. The family owned and operated business began as an air conditioning service company in 2006, later adding plumbing, electrical, and whole home generators for a one stop business.
“We are a one-stop location for all your major home and business systems,” said Dana Spears. Dana manages the business while husband James provides hands-on training with field staff. In addition to her husband, Dana’s mother Dolores, daughters Morgan and Hannah, son Josh, and sons-in-law Michael and Ronnie also work at Cornerstone.
One of the keys to the success of the business are the employees and the care Dana takes in hiring. She knows the importance of having trustworthy, skilled technicians that customers will feel comfortable with entering their homes. A background check and drug screening is performed on each new hire as an added comfort level for their customers.
The technicians are certified in their field of expertise and are encouraged to continue their education and certifications. Cornerstone offers certification courses for their technicians to keep them up to date on the state-of-the-art equipment.
Cornerstone makes every effort to ease their client’s concerns, and the technicians will take the time to answer any questions the clients may have, without all the technical jargon, so the client has a clear understanding of what needs to be fixed. The technicians take pride in their workmanship, and the work is covered under warranty.
Another drawback to hiring a less qualified handyman to service your home is that he/she may not be around when an emergency arises, or you need warranty or repair work done. Cornerstone is available 24/7 to help.
Smaller companies or one-man shops may not have the parts needed for the repair. Cornerstone has a 6000 square foot warehouse on their existing property in order to better meet their customers’ needs. The additional space contains a fully stocked warehouse of water heaters, water treatment systems, generators, air conditioning units, and more. This allows the company to meet the demand better. Each morning, the vans are fully stocked with everything their technicians need. With the proper high-quality parts and tools needed, the technicians are highly efficient and can, oftentimes, resolve the clients’ problem on the first visit.
For the last 8 years, Cornerstone has scored the highest ratings on Angie’s List, an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, received the Brighthouse Business Award, and received the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce Large Business of the Year Award for 2016. In 2018, Cornerstone was presented with the “Heart of Pasco” award by the Community Affairs Committee of the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce. It is given to a business that exemplifies the Chamber mission for business advancement, economic growth, and job creation. Most recently, Cornerstone received the 2019 People’s Choice Best of the Best award, from the Tampa Bay Times.
