Your home is the place where life happens, and that means it's put through all the wear and tear that life brings. Small problems develop here and there until, all of a sudden, you have a mile-long to-do list and no idea where to get started. In the worst-case scenario, problems that are hidden or ignored become major projects after they get worse, and you’ll eventually need to call a handyman in Severn, MD.

You might be able to handle some of these minor repairs yourself, but losing free time to restoration projects is frustrating—especially when it takes multiple days to fix a problem. Plus, if you're not a Severn handyman yourself, the cost of renting tools, buying materials, and making mistakes all start to add up with every second spent on DIY construction.

Not to mention the time you spend trying to find information about how to properly fix something. A broken socket seems like a simple fix until you find out about all the safety measures you need to take when dealing with electricity. You want to replace your old fence, but who has the time to dig post holes and paint boards?

Mr. Handyman of Anne Arundel and PG County is here to help our neighbors in Severn with all of your home handyman needs. Our team of experienced professionals will handle every job on your list so you get your weekends back. Also, our friendly customer assistance team is here to talk about your maintenance projects and help you schedule an appointment with one of our service pros for a safe, worry-free experience.

Drywall Installation & Repair

Drywall is a composite material made of paperboard and gypsum that lines the interior of all your walls. It adds fire protection to Severn homes, but it's not very durable. Every handyman knows that holes and other kinds of wall damage are common, and even minor drywall repairs require more than a little time and effort to properly complete. A local handyman will take care of the whole job, so you don't have to deal with the mess of mixing compound, sanding, and painting over the finished area.

We Can Fix:

Cracks. Whether from improper installation, the natural settling of your home, or foundation damage, when cracks occur, you need them inspected and repaired right away. Because cracks can be a sign of a more serious issue, calling a professional handyman to check out your home's structural integrity is important.

Wear and tear. Daily wear and tear can show up in the form of dents, scratches, and holes in your drywall. Whether from accidental impact or improperly hanging pictures or TVs, drywall isn't the world's most durable material and shows damage very easily. Let us help get your drywall back in flawless condition.

Doorknob holes. When you swing a door back, or it flies open from a gust, there's a good chance it will hit your wall. When it does, it can make quite an impact, leaving a hole in your wall. Whether you have just one site of damage or numerous holes in the walls around your house, we can help. Repairing holes quickly will prevent pests and dust from entering through your walls. We may also recommend installing door stoppers to prevent this issue from recurring. 

Water damage. Leaks and high humidity levels can affect your drywall. If a leak springs behind your wall in a place where it is unprimed and unpainted, it will soak into the wall rather easily and show up on the other side as a discolored, mushy patch. The repair process for water damage involves cutting away the affected section and applying a patch. Doing this at the first sight of damage is important as it will address any plumbing issues lurking behind your walls and stop the damage from spreading or causing mold or wood rot.

Small and large holes. Games of indoor catch gone wrong, moving furniture, and hanging TVS improperly can cause holes of all sizes. Whether yours is the size of a pinprick or a football, a quick patch job will cover it up. To do it, we'll need to cut a square around the hole. If there are just a few nails or pin holes, all that may be needed is some drywall mud. In either case, we'll sand down the replaced section, prime it, and paint it so that it matches your existing wall completely.

Vermin and pest damage. Because drywall is made from paper, pests love to eat it, while others make it their home. If mysterious holes are appearing across your drywall, calling for an inspection is key. If we do find pests, we can recommend the name of a trusted exterminator to resolve the issue. 

Door Repair & Installation

Doors are the entryways into your home. They provide privacy to your rooms and help keep your belongings out of sight. But these are just their basic functions. Doors have a wide range of benefits that include maintaining the energy efficiency of your home, keeping it safe, keeping it free from pests and drafts, and providing curb appeal. With so many uses and benefits, getting door repair in Severn is important. Some of the most common issues we address during a door repair include:

Cracks. With constant slamming and gusts, your doors sure do take a beating. Excessive wear and tear can cause cracks, but more than likely, your door is cracking due to expansion and contraction. As wood takes on moisture and dries, the material expands and then contracts. When it does, it will crack. Some cracks can be filled with epoxy, while others call for a complete door replacement.

Warping. Moisture is a wooden door's worst enemy. It also causes doors to warp. This is one of the reasons we recommend frequent restaining and painting--to protect it from moisture. If your door is warped, it may not shut properly, or it may not completely seal. This leaves your home susceptible to break-ins as warped doors may not fully close or lock. 

Broken hardware. The hardware on your doors, such as the hinges, knobs, and locks all have their limits. Hinges are commonly replaced since they bear the entire weight of your door. If your door was installed incorrectly, excess pressure may have been put on one of the hinges, causing it to give way and break. As for knobs and locks, you will get around a decade of use, depending on the type. You should replace knobs and locks to prevent them from wearing out and leaving your home vulnerable to unwanted guests.

Wood rot. Affecting wooden doors only, if you have composite wood, you won't have to worry about this pesky problem. Whether you have solid wood or hollow core doors, wood rot is possible. What's worse, some types of rot spread quickly and can travel across non-wooden surfaces and into your home. Inspect your entry doors regularly and look out for crumbly textures, white or orange colors, or stringy pieces. If we catch wood rot early enough all that will be required is a quick removal and filling.  

Carpentry Services

The walls in your Severn home can be manipulated to create a new feature or special look. There's more to decorating than just hanging photos and pictures. There are many common and interesting additions that improve the look of rooms in your house. Carpentry jobs can be started during repairs and renovations or any time you feel like adding a fresh aesthetic to your property.

Why Not Add the Following?

  • Crown Molding: An ornamental feature at the top of your walls that adds flair and value. This feature comes in a variety of classic and modern styles.
  • Shelving and bookcases: Storage solutions don't have to stand out, but they can also stand out more if you want them to. Built-ins, floating shelves, and custom mantels are just some of your options.
  • Molding and trim painting: Adding color to the smaller border features of your walls is tedious. The best option is usually to paint before installation, but you can still paint existing features.
  • Wainscoting: A wall paneling style that adds depth and dimension to the lower areas of walls to create a more interesting appearance. This feature also has a minor protective benefit that comes from adding a layer of material over the existing wall, but its main purpose is decorative.

Exterior Home Maintenance

The exterior of your home is the first thing you see after a long day. Peeling paint, deteriorating fences, and damaged siding are the last things you want to see, much less figure out how to fix. A professional, full-service handyman company is a great choice for updates to the outside of your home. Our industry experience is the very best when it comes to many of the outdoor features of your home.
