Along with landscaping, did you know that Charlie Dittmar Property Maintenance also offers handyman services? We serve homeowners on Mount Desert Island and in the neighboring towns of Trenton, Maine, and Ellsworth, Maine. Here are some of the services we offer.
Moving can be a daunting task. We can help. If you are moving within our service area, we offer packing and moving assistance.
We have an open-air trailer to transport your belongings. If you’d prefer more secure transportation, we can rent a moving truck. Moving costs depend on the size of the home and the distance to be traveled.
Did you know that our owner, Charlie Dittmar, is a certified carpenter’s assistant? Along with landscaping, he can do light home construction tasks. Whether you’re building your new home or adding on to your current one, we can help. We can also build patios, steps, and other structures to enhance your home’s appearance. Our owner is willing to meet with you to discuss your home improvement needs and how he can best meet them.
Along with raking leaves off your lawn, we can remove them from your gutters to ensure water can drain properly. This is essential to avoiding ice dams in the winter when the water freezes. If you have waited too long to clean your gutters and have an ice dam, it is not too late.
We have the only Arctic Steamer on Mount Desert Island. This machine can melt and vaporize ice in your gutter to clear it. It can also be used to defrost construction sites and melt snowbanks.
Costs vary depending on the task. To remove leaves, we charge about $100. We charge $35 per hour to remove ice dams, plus $14 to 40 per hour for equipment charges.
Roof Raking & Shoveling
Maine is known for its long, snowy winters. Snow can collect on your roof and cause structural damage to your home. We can prevent this by roof raking or shoveling after every snowstorm. Depending on how much snow there is, we can shovel your roof or rake the snow off with our special roof rake. The average roof snow removal costs around $300.
Please note that all work is done by the hour. Our winter and fall rate is $40 an hour, plus a small charge for power equipment. Our spring and summer rate is an additional $10 per hour. Please contact us for an estimate on your specific project.
