At Stoke Solutions, our HomeWatch services aim to make your life a little less stressful. Whether you are away on vacation or have a seasonal property in Revelstoke, we can watch over your home to make sure your valuable assets are protected.
Most insurance policies require that a vacant home be periodically checked to maintain valid insurance. We tailor our services to accommodate the requirements of your insurance and to ensure your home is secure and in good repair for your return. We also offer several extra services you can choose to make your home comfortable and welcoming for your return. It may feel like you have never left!
No matter how long you will be away, you can count on Stoke Solutions to keep your home safe.
How It Works
Before you leave, we will visit your home to meet you and discuss the details of your individualized service. At an interval decided by you, we will meticulously check your home during your absence, with the help of your custom home checklist. After each visit, we will email you a report so you can be sure your home is looked after. In the case of any maintenance issues, we will take digital photos and email them to you or, for more urgent issues, contact you immediately by phone. We can either take care of the problem ourselves, or hire an appropriate contractor to do the work.
We maintain a detailed record of inspection, along with digital photographs, to ensure that your home insurance is valid and can help protect you if problems arise. Home insurance providers’ requirements differ during winter and summer seasons due to the added complications cold weather can cause in your home. Our packages and rates change according to the season, to offer you the protection you need.
