Meet NORM.

Relax and let me do the work....

Norm Barry was born and raised in Haliburton County and knows just about every inch of this area. He worked for years and gained valuable training in hot tub and pump repairs as well, in his younger years, he worked in the trades. 



Norm is reliable, friendly, and trustworthy which is what you should be looking for when trusting your home, cottage, hot tub or maintenance work to anyone.  Backed with the experience to do the job right, your will not be disappointed.



Norm's wife also owns her own business - she operates The Grooming Studio in Haliburton - a pet grooming and supply business.  Both Norm and his wife Adele are hard working and dependable people who like to make their customers happy.

When you are not at the cottage for a while, you do wonder what is happening while you are not there. Norm Barry takes away that worry.  My cottage is secure.

It was great arriving at the cottage and not having to worry about our hot tub and our yard - everything was ready for us to just enjoy the weekend.

People tend to think of break-ins and theft as a major factor in cottage security, but most damage is caused by weather and animals. Regular inspections of your property, will reduce the extent of damage caused by these factors and will act as a deterrent to potential thieves. In fact, some insurance companies are requiring that someone check in on your cottage as often as every 72 hours.


Serving Haliburton and the Kawarthas, Norm Barry Cottage Check will visit your cottage on regular intervals to check for break-ins, vandalism, weather or animal damage. Even if you have invested in freeze alarms or burglar alarms you really do need someone local, like Norm Barry Cottage Check, to be available to respond QUICKLY if your alarm goes off.


Norm Barry Cottage Check can also help you arrange any property maintenance, cottage cleaning, general contracting and "handyman services" See our services section for further details on comprehensive services offered by Cottage Check.

Keeping on eye on things...

Norm recommended a fantastic landscaper who kept our yard looking immaculate while we enjoyed relaxing at the cottage. It was great not having to worry about yard work.

No lawn cutting in the summer, and no snow plowing in the winter... what more can you ask for?  Thanks Norm for setting up the people to look after this for us. I just don't have time to do it. I'd rather enjoy my cottage time with my family.



Eric, Haliburton

No having to wonder if we are doing the chemicals right in our hot tub took a lot of stress out of owning one and made our life simple. Thanks for taking care of the opening, closing and maintenance of our hot tub.
