Below are 3 handyman services we provide.

7. Door Repairs

You might not realize it, but doors on the inside of your house often endure a fair bit of wear and tear. Kids running in and out, dogs jumping excitedly to greet or bark at visitors, slamming the door as you rush off to work in the morning, and occasionally, testing the limitations of your door frame by trying to move a couch that is apparently too big. Let us help you make repairs to these high-use features and fixtures in your home. Our capable staff have the experience and the right tools for the job. We can restore your interior doors to prime operation, from loose door jams to broken handles and lock replacements.

Exterior door repair is also something that should be addressed, particularly doors that no longer properly close or are properly sealed and daylight can be seen peeking through. This can create a number of issues from unwanted pests or creepy-crawly visitors to drafts and a great deal of energy loss. Don’t let faulty doors affect the security and aesthetic appeal of your home.

8. Deck Repairs

One of the activities that everyone is eagerly looking forward to this year is gathering with friends and family. Even though we may not quite be out of the pandemic woods yet, that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel is certainly visible with vaccine rollouts picking up pace all around. If you plan to host gatherings in your outdoor space, make sure that it is in good shape. Look for any warning signs that indicate your deck may need some repairs before your next bash. Things like loose rails, peeling paint, or splintered or rotted deck boards must be addressed to ensure your group’s safety, and spare you any embarrassment. Pay attention to the posts and footings of your deck. Look for signs of wood rot and any cracks that can compromise the integrity and safety of your outdoor structure.

9. Exterior Upgrades

The list of possible exterior upgrades is quite long. Do your window sills need repair? Is the step to your front door broken? Do you want to install a railing along your front porch? Considering a retaining wall as a new feature? Want to add an awning over your patio? With the help of an experienced handyman service, these projects can be handled quickly and efficiently.

Among all the cosmetic fixes, you may also want to check if your home’s siding and roofing or shingles need repairs. It is crucial that you address any damages to them before the problem becomes more serious and more expensive.

Getting your home’s gutters cleaned is another simple task that you can have a handyman complete. Clean gutters are an essential component of your home’s ability to avoid water damage.

Finally, a simple way to upgrade your home’s exterior is to replace and update light fixtures. This won’t just update the overall look and curb appeal of your home, but also offer the opportunity to make your home more energy efficient.
