OneSource services are separated into two divisions: Repair Services and Support Services.

Repair Services consist of service calls, apartment turnovers and residential rehabs and renovations and property inspection report repairs.

7. How much does your service cost?

We offer savings with different types of repairs billed at different rates, including:

  • Technical Repairs: Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Electrical
  • Handyman Repairs: Painting and Patching and other minor home repairs billed at a lower rate
  • Fixed Cost Repairs: Installation of Home Mechanicals, Rehabs and Renovations, Whole Apartment Turnovers

Other service providers charge for their services per “event” so if you need multiple items addressed you are charged for each with a pre-set fixed cost per “event” even if they are all same trade related and done as one call. For example of other companies plumbing call:

$199 reset commode
$149 replace tub spout
$99 remove sink trap
$49 adjust water temperature
Total Bill: $496

At OneSource we roll all of your technical service needs into one call priced at $99 for the first hour and $45 per additional half hour no matter how many “events” you have which could result in cost saving you up to 50%.

For more details, call us at 412-848-1953.

12. Does OneSource offer property management?

OneSource does not provide tenant rent collection and related administrative services outside the repair and support services we have identified. However, OneSource does collaborate through joint venture partnerships with property management companies that do provide these administrative services. We check the quality of service that these providers offer before we refer our clients so as to ensure that they will receive the highest quality services available.
