GAMBRILLS DRYWALL REPAIRS
Most people in Gambrills, and pretty much everywhere else, could go years without ever having drywall cross their minds—even though they’re surrounded by it on a daily basis. And quite frankly, that’s perfectly understandable. Drywall is certainly not the most fascinating or exciting building material, so it’s usually overlooked. But, when your drywall has suffered damage such as cracks, holes, or moisture issues, suddenly everyone notices it each time they walk into the room.
Any Gambrill's handyman will tell you that drywall damage isn't merely an unappealing cosmetic problem. It can also cause serious issues in your home that cost money, and make your house a lot less comfortable. Here are some of the potential unpleasant effects of damaged drywall:
- Decreases sound separation between rooms, which is a big challenge if you live with people who like to turn up the music or rearrange furniture at odd hours
- Encourages rodent and insect infestations by providing access points in and out of the house’s interior
- Reduces energy efficiency by allowing warm or cool air from your HVAC system to escape inside the walls, increasing your utility costs
Luckily, drywall repairs are one of our many Gambrills handyman services. Our team will take care of the entire repair process, so you don't have to worry. This includes:
- Removing old drywall
- Installing new sheetrock panels
- Joint taping
- Mudding seams and corners with joint compound to create a smooth, even surface
- Painting or refinishing the wall, so the repair is completely invisible
- Cleaning up afterward
We can even rehang your framed photos and curtains for the finishing touches! Your home will look just as good as it did when your Gambrills handyman arrived—if not better because the drywall damage will be completely gone.
What Damaged My Drywall?
There are situations when you know exactly what damaged your drywall—an overenthusiastic amateur martial arts move, for example. But in other situations, such as drywall that’s softened due to excess moisture, the damage’s source can be a big question mark. That’s why it’s so useful to have a multi-skilled Gambrills handyman on your side who is capable of repairing drywall—and more. If you’re not sure how your drywall was damaged, we’ll trace the problem to its source and repair that as well—so you don't have to deal with the stress and expense of scheduling another Gambrill's handyman service appointment to fix a recurring issue.
GAMBRILLS GUTTER CLEANING & REPAIR
Did you know that gutter cleaning is one of the most neglected household chores in Gambrills, and throughout the rest of Maryland? It isn't difficult to understand why—it’s a messy, time-consuming, and difficult process that may be next to impossible if you can't spend hours up on a wobbly ladder, scooping handfuls of gross, rotting muck out of your rain gutters. Plus, the plentiful trees and bushes in Gambrills tend to fill up gutters with dead leaves quite rapidly in the fall.
But what few homeowners realize is that keeping gutters clean and in good repair is absolutely critical to protect your home against severe water damage problems that range from a leaky roof to a cracked foundation, and everything in between.
When your gutters are in good shape and not overflowing, they collect rainwater that falls on your roof. It then flows safely into downspouts where it’s disposed of away from your house without causing any harm. Not impressed? It’s actually a surprising volume of water. Just one inch of rain on a 2,000-square-foot roof produces 1,240 gallons. The average annual rainfall in Gambrills, MD, is 44 inches—considerably more than the national average of 38 inches. This means 54,560 gallons of water falls on your roof every year—or more if you have a larger roof—and that’s not counting snowmelt.
If your gutters are packed full of dead leaves, dirt, animal nests, and other debris, that 54,560 gallons of water has nowhere to go. Thus, it spills over the gutters’ edge or pours through broken and weak points, dripping across your home’s exterior and causing huge problems. The effects of overflowing gutters on your house include:
- Water pooling on the roof, causing leaks and rot
- Standing water in gutters that blows into soffit vents and fascia boards, causing wood rot, softening support beams and compromising the roof’s structural stability
- Deteriorating siding, window frames, and door jambs, which lets moisture inside your walls, causing mold and mildew growth
- That deterioration also causes siding, window frames, and door jambs to let in air drafts—compromising your home’s energy efficiency and changing the interior temperature, so your HVAC system has to use more energy
- Water seeping into the soil around your foundation and freezing during the winter, constricting and cracking concrete
- Soil eroding from under your foundation, causing the house to sink and develop stress cracks
Still not interested in climbing up a ladder to clean and repair your gutters? No problem—we will get them sparkling clean, and can take care of fixing any breaks or weak points while we’re at it. As part of your Gambrills handyman service appointment, we can also install gutter guards that prevent debris from accumulating so fast in the future.

What If I Don't Have Enough Room for an Accessibility Ramp Outside?
This is a common concern, especially for houses with a front door close to the road or sidewalk. Keep in mind that the ramp does not have to extend out in a straight line—it can switch back on itself or turn at 90 degrees, as long as there’s ample space at the turning point for a wheelchair or motorized scooter to navigate safely. The ramp also doesn't necessarily have to connect to your front door. It may be possible to install a ramp at a side or back door, or connect to a porch instead.
