It's been said that children like surprises while adults like predictability.
If so, The Hignell Companies has noticed one exception: the surprise that many customers express when they learn that we offer many more services than what we're perhaps most well known for: heating and air conditioning maintenance, repairs and installation. The Hignell team also includes electricians, plumbers, builders, flooring specialists, painters and cleaning professionals.
As a family-owned company, Hignell has been serving the Chico area – including Corning, Durham, Orland, Oroville, Paradise and Red Bluff – for more than 60 years. We've built our business on two simple but important principles: to provide expert, efficient service and an unparalleled customer experience. These are more than mere words: At Hignell, we back up these principles with a customer satisfaction guarantee.
By offering our customers a full array of home maintenance services, our customers never have to scramble to find a furnace technician, an electrician or a plumber when an emergency arises. They never have to take a chance on letting an unfamiliar contractor -- a painter, a carpenter, a carpet installer -- into their home. And they never have to worry about whether a job will be finished when promised or whether they will be charged a fair price.
No one needs this kind of stress, especially when Hignell can offer peace of mind on all fronts. Consider Hignell's one-stop home maintenance service lineup:
Heating and Air Conditioning Services
Hignell is rightfully proud of its signature service line: heating and air conditioning maintenance, repairs and installation. Our customers know that we're advocates of yearly furnace and air conditioning tune-ups because we know that regular maintenance keeps a system running cleanly and efficiently, reduces the chance of breakdowns and extends a system's longevity. But like all electronic components, HVAC systems do malfunction. Hignell's licensed technicians always can be counted on to provide quick, efficient service to get a furnace or air conditioner up and running – or replace one when it makes economic sense to do so.
Hignell's licensed electricians are as precise as they are safety-conscious. Our most common customer requests include: rewiring, switch and breaker repairs, electrical panel upgrades, indoor and outdoor lighting upgrades and ceiling fan installation and replacement. There is no electrical challenge Hignell electricians cannot conquer, which is why they also are master troubleshooters and are adept at planning electrical service for construction projects.
It's true that a call for plumbing service usually means a crisis is under way. Hignell plumbers have responded to them all: dripping and flooding faucets and sinks; clogged drains in sinks, tubs and showers; and malfunctioning toilets, garbage disposals, dishwashers, water heaters and septic tanks. Many plumbing problems “hide in plain sight.” Hignell plumbers always get to the root cause and impart practical, proactive advice to mitigate future problems.
Building and Remodeling Services
Fewer initiatives in life can incite as much excitement – and fear – as a building or remodeling project. At Hignell, we strive to keep the former sentiment high while eliminating the latter. Our project managers plan, coordinate and supervise projects from drafting the original design to applying the final coat of polish. They provide clear and accurate cost estimates, budgets and timetables while complying with local building and safety codes – all while communicating with customers every step of the way.
The choice of flooring literally sets the stage for everything that follows. At Hignell, we're proud of the imagination and ideas that our flooring experts bring to the table, whether a customer wants a quick tile installation in a guest bathroom or new hardwood flooring throughout an entire first level. Hignell also installs carpet, offering customers a wide range of choices to suit their lifestyle and budget.
We could say that Hignell “has your painting needs covered inside and out.” But to limit our work to interior and exterior painting might be falling one wrung short on the ladder. We're also adept at cabinet refinishing, power washing, deck coatings and waterproofing. Customers who appreciate the “power of paint” also appreciate the wide range of specialty finishes that Hignell's skilled, artistic painters can supply to transform an ordinary space into an extraordinary space.
Hignell provides “the white glove treatment” to tasks of any size, whether it's a seasonal garage clean-up or a whole-house scrub-down before a proud, new homeowner moves into a new home. Our cleaning crews are so thorough that many customers rely on Hignell to provide weekly or biweekly housecleaning services. We're delighted to accommodate any cleaning schedule and work within a wide range of home maintenance budgets.
When Hignell says that “We are experts in your home,” it also means that we can become your one-stop home maintenance service provider when you contact us online or call 530-924-5564. Leave heart-thumping surprises to children; for the best and most predictably reliable home maintenance services in northern California, you can leave it all to Hignell.
