1. Custom Shelves, Bookcases, Entertainment Centers and Consoles

Not only does custom shelving enable you to store items in a more organized fashion, but they also really elevate a room. Have you considered installing cubbies at your front entrance where your little ones can drop off their backpacks, shoes and coats? Rather than these items being strewn about your entryway, they can have a dedicated place to minimize clutter.

Likewise, entertainment centers and consoles are excellent storage solutions that look great. Hide unattractive wires behind a show-stopping shelving unit. This is also an excellent place to add space for books, children's toys and decorative items. A console could also function as a storage chest where you put blankets and pillows that aren't being used.

In the basement, built-ins are a lifesaver. Whether you need space to store old children's clothes that you aren't ready to part with, or you need a better way to organize the tools and materials you use for your hobby, custom shelves are the ideal way to stay organized.

2. Install a New Mantel

Maybe your fireplace already has a mantel, but it's not really your style. Or, your home is a new-build that didn't include a mantel. In either case, the experts at Mr. Handyman can create a mantel worthy of your fireplace. This accent is perfect for highlighting the heart of your home, and adds a personal touch by enabling space for holiday cards, family photos and precious decorative items.

3. Railing Installation and Stairway Repair

We can also help with stair railings. Although your home should have a railing, sometimes these key features are missing from front porches and garages. If you have elderly relatives, it makes visits much easier if they can get up the stairs with the help of a railing.

Our pro carpentry contractors can also fix damaged or broken railings and steps, so you and your family can always feel safe going up and down the stairs.

4. Repair or Replace Molding

Chipped, missing or crooked molding is unappealing, and one of the most common repair jobs our carpenters have helped Norfolk County homeowners with. Like anything else in your home, over time crown molding can start to look a little worn. Common causes of trim damage include:

  • Shifting foundations
  • Moisture and humidity
  • Fluctuating temperatures
  • Accidental impact
  • Pests
  • Mold and mildew

5. Custom Doors

Like your molding, it's natural for your doors to wear over time. Not only can our expert carpenters assist with a wide range of door repairs—such as repairing warped frames and ill-fitting latches—but we also build custom doors. If you've always wanted a barn door over your pantry or have an oddly shaped closet, we can create beautiful doors that elevate the style of any room.

6. Cabinets

Your cabinets take up the most real estate in many areas of your home, including the kitchen and bathroom. So, it's important that they look great and function properly. Outdated, worn or damaged cabinets are not only frustrating to use, but they also seriously detract from a room's aesthetic. Whether you want to replace old-fashioned vinyl cabinets with a new design, or your original wood cupboards need to be refaced, we've got it covered.

7. Exterior Carpentry

Our carpentry services are not just limited to the indoors! Rather, our team of experts can build a variety of custom structures outside too. For instance, if you've moved into an older home and aren't happy with the deck, then it might be time for a replacement! Not only can we build a new deck or porch from the ground up, but there are many cool options that you can add to your outdoor space to truly make it your own. Build an outdoor area where you, your friends and your family actually want to hang out all summer long. Some unique add-ons include:

  • Front porch swings
  • Build-in benches
  • Arbors
  • Shaded pergolas
  • Custom post caps
  • Built-in planters
  • Privacy fences
  • Awnings
  • Railing-mounted planters
  • Outdoor storage and seating
