Service Provider Referrals in the Neighborhood.
We all occasionally need service providers for home maintenance or small service jobs around our homes. Personal referrals are always helpful, and providers who do a good job for us will appreciate referrals to other homeowners nearby who have similar needs. Sometimes it is better to find someone who has already done work in the neighborhood who might be able to offer a better price if they get more work nearby.
These referrals are offered as a convenience to our residents, and listing here does not represent any endorsement by the Barkley Square Civic Club. You are responsible for doing your own reference checks as you feel necessary!
This page is intended to be a list of providers who homeowners in the community feel comfortable referring to neighbors. If you have had a job done around your home and feel like you got good service, why not let your neighbors know about it. This helps both your neighbor and the person or company who did a good job for you.
To post information on this page, fill out our contact form and send it to the Webmaster. Be sure to include the following information for the posting:
  • Name of the provider
  • Phone number to reach the provider (email address is also helpful)
  • When the work was done (month and year is enough information)
  • Description of the work. This can be very brief, like "repaired washing machine leak", or you can go into more detail as you think appropriate. It should not go over 200 words!!
  • Any additional comments you think pertinent, such as, "very prompt", "excellent price", Professional work", etc. Brief, but relevant is the guideline. What would you want to know if you were looking for this kind of service?

  • Paul's Pool Service, October 2014, after a routine filter cleaning, I noticed that I was not getting adequate water flow through my system and had Paul come out to check into it. After blowing out my skimmer lines to no effect, he took a look at the impeller and found it clogged with grass clippings, which he cleaned out to correct the flow problem. He told me he experiences a lot of this problem, as yard crews pay no attention to the clippings they blow into pools, and the several filters in the lines are not able to prevent these flowing into the impeller. I am planning an annual clearing of this equipment in the future as routine maintenance. -RGM
