Performance Plus

After you have lived in your new home for one year, Palm Harbor Homes recommends that you inspect and maintain certain features of your house. We realize that some homeowners are uncomfortable handling electrical or plumbing maintenance and prefer not to climb on their roof or crawl under their home. So Palm Harbor Marketing, Inc. is proud to offer our new Performance Plus Care Program. One year after your new home, purchase, a factory-trained technician will perform your home inspection with you and make adjustments as needed.

This entire package is offered free of charge, and is one of the many benefits of purchasing your new Palm Harbor home and amenity package through Palm Harbor Marketing, Inc. or an affiliated community. This free package saves you an estimated $3,500 that an outside licensed and/or registered contractor would charge you to perform all of these important tasks.
