Suppose you are a property owner with a list of maintenance chores you’re struggling to complete. In that case, you are certainly not alone. Unfortunately, any neglected task will haunt you in the form of warning signs. For example, if your family has been complaining about cold drafts in the house, that could be linked to deteriorating attic insulation or damaged window trim. Or, if you still haven’t installed that pet door for your senior dog that needs frequent bathroom trips, then you could find yourself getting up at all hours of the night to let Rufus out. Feeling overwhelmed? We don’t blame you. Relieve that stress by hiring District Heights handyman services.
District Heights property owners are exceptionally busy because they want to have a healthy social life while working hard. As a homeowner, you likely work full-time and have a family to care for. Likewise, as a business owner, you have to manage daily operations, attend meetings, and train employees. We know life can get very busy, and your property maintenance often falls by the wayside. That's why we offer this list of maintenance services to facilitate your busy life:
Did you know that horizontal lines have a tranquil effect on our eyes, similar to watching the sunrise or sunset? Trim is a crucial part of your home and offers the same peaceful qualities by tying your house together. Besides making hallways and rooms look tidy and safe, baseboards hide ugly gaps and imperfections caused by drywall and floor installation. Baseboards also protect floors and drywall from water damage. Door casings and window sills serve a similar purpose. These fixtures cover any gaps and spaces between drywall and frames. They also protect your home from drafts. As trim installation requires precision, you can count on our District Heights handyman service to install it right the first time.
Keep in mind that a trim repair or upgrade could boost your home's resale value, whether you install new crown moldings or door frames. While new trim within your home will give you a satisfying feeling, it will even be more pleasing to the eye of a potential buyer.
Additionally, you may experience instances where your walls don't match your floor. Baseboards can eliminate this clash by evening out a lack of harmony. Another aesthetic option is to add decorative baseboard corners near staircases. However, this might not be ideal for a busy household with kids and pets. Instead, consider adding aesthetic details to your crown moldings and mantels instead!
Trim material types include:
- Engineered wood
Gutters are designed to protect your roof system, siding, and your home's foundation by diverting stormwater. Gutters become clogged over time due to debris accumulation or bird nests, depending on how many trees grow on or near your property. There are many benefits of keeping your gutters clean, but that doesn’t mean District Heights homeowners enjoy the idea of gutter cleaning—and we don’t blame you.
If you are on top of your gutter cleaning routine and prefer doing it yourself, we recommend that you take in your ladder for regular inspections—ideally every three to six months. Chances are it has been in the garage or shed for too long and might have gotten rusty. This could increase the risk of the ladder breaking and causing an accident.
But guess who is insured, always equipped with a gutter scoop, gloves, safety glasses, and a certified ladder? That's right, your local handyman. District Heights homeowners can safely lean back and let our technicians take this burden off their shoulders. We'll also inspect your gutter and downspouts' condition to ensure that you won't have to worry about leaks that could potentially damage your roof system, siding, or structural foundation. Hiring a professional gutter cleaning service can prevent problems in the future, as we take proactive measures to protect your house's exterior. We also offer gutter guard installation and downspout extension services.
District Heights Handyman Repair Services
Whether you own a residential or commercial property, eventually, it will show signs of aging or deterioration. If you need a thorough diagnosis to identify underlying issues, contact your local handyman. District Heights homeowners should take immediate action if they notice sagging floors or bulging walls. Reacting early to telltale signs often means completing minor repairs that could prevent the need for future replacements.
You might not always notice weather damage or gradual wear until unexpected repairs seek your attention. Residential and commercial spaces should be safe and comfortable. A drafty window by your office chair or a slamming fire exit door is a nuisance that affects your focus—not to mention the sight of old grout lines in the shower or bubbling paint on your drywall.
The idea of laying tile may seem exciting at first until you take a closer look at the details and required surface prep. Suddenly you don't even know where to start or what type of material you should use. Endless questions will go through your head, like, "What type of grout do I need?" or, "Do I opt for cement tile or porcelain, or maybe granite?"
Today's trends have breathed new life into the art of laying and designing tiles. But more importantly, tiles need to serve their function—whether as part of your home's flooring, walls, or backsplashes. If you see cracked tiles or grout in the shower, you risk water damage behind the walls. The same applies to floors. Whether you need tile repair in the kitchen or installation in the bathroom, your local District Heights handyman can help. We can also help property owners learn about the benefits of different types of tile, including ceramic, porcelain, slate, and marble. Each variety delivers its own unique qualities, along with pros and cons, depending on your needs. Our experienced team will help you make the right decision.
Do you have a half-finished basement that needs a proper floor before you can build a kids’ play area or a workshop? Or do you have a new countertop that’s missing a backsplash? Trust our meticulous eye for detail to give you the best tile installation service.
Grout is crucial for protecting your tiled walls and floors from water damage. It neatly fills the spaces between tiles, creating a seamless appearance. Unsure if you need to use unsanded or finely sanded grout? It depends on where your tiles are being laid. Epoxy grout is also a popular choice but requires certain expertise during application because it dries faster. This is where you can rely on our experienced handyman services.
Drywall installation became popular in the mid-20th century due to its durability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. Unlike plaster walls, drywall requires less labor, saving homeowners time and money. The fire- and water-resistant component also makes drywall an attractive construction material choice. Many modern houses use it for both interior walls and to replace outdated plaster ceilings. The average drywall thickness is 1/2 inch. While durable, drywall is not waterproof. Other kinds of wallboard include cement boards and green boards, which have waterproofing elements, such as a waxed surface. However, they still wouldn't withstand significant water damage.
Small holes in your walls can be fixed with patching jobs, whereas larger holes (bigger than six inches in diameter) require drywall replacement. If you’re not a fan of dealing with compounds (it can be messy business!) or are unsure how to carefully cover seams with mesh tape, ask your local handyman. District Heights residents deserve some downtime while we get the job done. Our team brings many years of experience patching and replacing drywall. We are happy to take this task off your plate. Don’t worry! We always clean up after ourselves, leaving no trace of any mess.
ADDITIONAL DISTRICT HEIGHTS HANDYMAN REPAIR SERVICES
Before you think that’s all we have to offer, there’s more up our sleeves. Other general home repair services that we cover include:
Door/Window Repair and Installation
We repair and install interior and exterior doors. Whether they look worn or show signs of wood rot, your local District Heights handyman has the tools and experience to inspect and fix your damaged doors and windows—all in a day. We also specialize in repairing framing and molding around windows. Smaller jobs we can complete include caulking or using wood filler to fix gaps in the door or windowsill.
Wood Rot Repair
Do you see decaying timber with gray strands that crumble? Often, it’s difficult to know if your rotten deck or fence board can be saved unless you consult your local handyman. District Heights homes tend to be in great shape, but sometimes damage can go unnoticed.
While siding can last up to 50 years, you need to consider the impacts of weather damage and home settling. Some foundational cracks you encounter inside your home can also reflect on your siding. We recommend keeping an annual maintenance checklist for your exterior cladding, during which you take pictures and schedule a yearly inspection, including minor siding repairs.
Pro Tip: Scheduling your routine gutter cleaning and roof inspection service will automatically protect your siding.
Soffit and Fascia Repair
These are the Latin and French names for your roof's structure closest to the gutters. When you have clogged gutters and the water has nowhere to go, your soffits and fascia can't hold the weight and are likely to break. This damage could also potentially affect your home's siding, causing water damage and cracks that allow insect, bird, or rodent infestations. If not dealt with right away, it will also severely impact your home's structural integrity.
Perhaps we have installed new drywall or a door for you, and you want to highlight them with a fresh coat of paint. Or maybe you want to revamp your home’s exterior by painting its trim. Paint options are endless, but only one will suit your needs best. Your District Heights handyman can help you choose a quality paint brand and primer and get the job done before you know it!
