As your Capitol Heights handyman, we’re here to help with everything from basic handyman jobs to more complicated repairs and improvements.

Houses are built to last, but unlike pyramids, they require regular maintenance services and minor repairs to stay in shape for as long as 100 years. Capitol Heights homeowners take pride in owning their homes, but sometimes, all the work a house requires can be overwhelming. Before unexpected occurrences throw you off balance (such as water damage or accidental punches into drywall), you can call your Capitol Heights handyman for services like gutter cleaning, new attic insulation or siding inspection. We encourage our customers to think ahead and take action as soon as they notice something out of the ordinary. Whether it’s a damaged deck or uncomfortable drafts, a clogged dryer vent or a broken pet door, we have the tools and expertise to act urgently on your emergencies.
Identifying and tackling telltale signs early will bring fewer problems in the future. Residential and commercial spaces need to be safe and comfortable, but a squeaky swing door is a nuisance, and bubbling paint indicates moisture problems. Trust our excellent service professionals to get the following repairs done right the first time:
Everyone needs solid ground to walk on, that’s also comfortable for your feet and safe for your children or pets. Even if you know what kind of safety and comfort you want, you might not be a flooring expert. That can turn to finding the right floor system for your new or existing home into a headache.
We recommend that Capitol Heights homeowners calculate their budget and write down the essential qualities they want from their new floor. Each flooring system serves a different purpose. Do you wish to install something durable, safe, and cost-effective for the high-traffic areas of your family home? Do you need something stylish, beautiful, and attractive for the new flooring in your kitchen? Our team can help you find the right flooring to meet your needs.
It all depends on the use case of each room. For example, your bathroom would benefit more from tile flooring due to high moisture, whereas your bedroom or home office would be more flexible with carpet or vinyl. Each type has its own unique characteristics; some can handle more traffic and impact than others, while others are more suited for meeting needs related to aesthetic appeal and property value.
Choosing the right type matters! Do you have high-traffic areas? Is someone in the family flat-footed and walks like a giant? Our professional flooring installation experts have done multiple floors for Capitol Heights property owners and nearby communities—from tile to hardwood and vinyl to laminate. Feel free to gather all your questions for your local handyman. Capitol Heights, MD, homeowners can count on expert floor installation advice and services, during which we’ll help you weigh out the pros and cons for materials like:
- Solid wood
- Engineered wood
- Natural stone
When historians look at tiles, they think of the industrial revolution, whereas modern art decorators use tiles to bring new perspectives into many homes. Tiles serve numerous functions for walls, backsplashes, and floors, but the art of laying tiles isn’t as easy as one might think. If you take a closer look at the details and get down to the fundamentals of planning, measuring, and cutting, several questions will go through your head: “Which type is best suited for my needs?” or “What is epoxy grout?” A tiling project has many steps.
If you have an existing tiling system with an outdated style but want to learn more about potential upgrades, ask your local handyman. Capitol Heights, MD, property owners will be surprised to see all the possibilities. From the shower wall to the kitchen floor—you tell us what you want. Never mind the messy grout; we will clean up after ourselves.
Note: We also fix any chipped or cracked tile and grout. If you have a minor chip in your backsplash, we will use epoxy to fix it. While epoxy is acceptable in some cases, we would not recommend using it to fix large cracks. For those repairs, the best option is to replace the damaged tile and regrout.
Drywall became popular in the mid-20th century due to its simple installation process requiring less labor, making it the most cost-effective option for property owners. It's durable, flexible, and more resistant to fire than plywood, which you still find in some older houses.
Most modern houses have turned to it as an affordable interior wall and even use it to fix ceilings or replace outdated plaster walls. The average drywall thickness is 1/2 inch, with 5/8 inch being the thickest. Some kinds of drywall, like cement boards and green board, have a waxed surface to resist water. Although they’re commonly used behind tile installation in bathrooms, they are not entirely waterproof and could still suffer from water damage. In fact, there are many kinds of damage that affect drywall, which is why drywall repair is one of the most popular services provided by our Capitol Heights handyman pros.
Water damage, dents, cracks, and holes are signs you need drywall repair or replacement in residential or commercial environments. We bring many years of experience in patching holes in drywall and replacing drywall panels that have suffered more extensive damage. We can even ensure that your repairs are invisible with basic painting service after repairs are complete.
Nothing is more annoying than a squeaky door throwing you off focus or damaged jambs and frames that allow cold air to leak into your home. These signs will make your head go haywire. You may wonder if you need to tighten the hinges, but what if they are corroded? Before you wish you hadn’t slammed the door so hard to prove a point, we can complete repairs to prevent serious damage.
Door frames naturally wear out over time too. Sometimes, the damage is minor, and your local Capitol Heights handyman can fix it with a simple caulking job or use wood filler to fill any gaps and holes in the frame. For serious damage, it may be necessary to replace your frame, and the door along with it.
Other common issues include door locks not latching properly or wooden doors rubbing and sticking to the frame. Often, problems will require you to remove the heavy door altogether, but don't despair! Your insured, local Capitol Heights handyman has the skills and experience with carpentry services to safely inspect, identify and fix any issues with your doors, whether they need minor repairs or full replacement.
