WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER

When it comes to your home’s maintenance, we’re in this together! While the RPA maintenance team will cover much of your home’s major maintenance concerns, you too be responsible for some of the repairs. RPA will handle the big stuff like appliances and fences. If something of that level goes wrong, contact us to handle either via warranty or with one of our maintenance techs. The smaller items, like air filters and pest control, will be your responsibility, so we have prepared some convenient "how to’s” to make it easy to address these situations. We want to help you avoid any unnecessary fees. Please reference the list below to determine what is covered by RPA, and what is your responsibility. Please also note there may be additional fees for each of the following: damage caused by you or a guest, an issue not reported to us which causes damage, someone over the age of 18 is not at your home during a scheduled visit, an appointment is cancelled in less than one business day.
