If you own a residential or commercial property, you are a busy person. When you work full-time, there’s barely any time to squeeze in maintenance chores unless you’re willing to sacrifice your weekend. Do you feel a draft by your window, or is your attic not circulating enough fresh air? Air leaks in a climate like Hingham could quickly lead to moisture damage inside your home. Your local Hingham handyman has the tools and expertise to get down to the root problem and offer you the relevant solutions for all you repairs.
SIDING INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE
Many people dream of a coastal life but dealing with salt air corrosion is a huge problem that not only affects your vehicles but also your home. Your siding serves as a shield that protects your house from those coastal weather conditions and other external forces.
Common Siding Types:
- Fiber cement
- Brick veneer
If you notice an increase in your energy bills, your siding’s performance may have deteriorated due to age and your interior walls will also be less effective in backing your insulation system. These issues are not easy to diagnose until you hire an experienced handyman. Hingham, MA properties with those problems will benefit from a routine inspection, during which we check your siding for cracks, dents or holes—anything that could pose a risk and compromise your home. Unless we detect serious damage that requires immediate repair, we will also offer our regular pressure washing service to help wash away damaging elements like salt stains, ocean sediment and other stubborn substances that have settled. Repainting your fiber cement or vinyl siding can recover your house’s original looks and boost your home value too, along with sealing and caulking specific areas to prevent future damage.
Deck maintenance helps you respond to and repair early signs of deterioration. We pressure wash and reseal decks for residents before the rainy season can take a toll on deck boards that might have suffered during the winter. If you love your wooden deck, whether it’s pressure-treated wood or cedar, routine inspection, cleaning and sealing are essential, because the combination of UV rays and saltwater will cause your timber’s interior to crystallize and break when deck boards that already have cracks or other existing damage allow these element to access their interior structure.
Signs That You Need Deck Repair:
- Deck boards are rotten or corroded
- Caked-on grime (layers of algae, dirt and ocean sediment)
- Erosion underneath due to drain trenches
- Peeling paint or bubbling wood stain
- Wobbly railings
- Unsecure footings, posts and joists
- Weak stairs
Salt minimizes fungal growth like wood rot, but corrosion is still a problem that could cause the structure to break. If you’re rolling your eyes at the amount of maintenance service your deck needs, you can seek advice from your local handyman. Hingham, MA property owners with excessive damage are often recommended to install composite decking. Made of a blend of wood fibers and plastic materials, composite is more resilient and durable than its wood-based counterparts. Although it comes with a higher price tag, the little maintenance it requires will ultimately compensate for it over the years, and it can last you up to 30 years.

PRESSURE WASHING AND POWER WASHING
Do you frequently take your vehicle to the car wash center to wash off some salt? Many areas on your property require a similar service. As part of your spring-cleaning duties, pressure washing is the best way to clean your deck, patio, fence and siding from salt, grime and other sediment. Power washing uses heated water that cleans stubborn grease or oil stains on concrete surfaces.
Please note that pressure washers have a psi level starting from 750, and depending on the type, it could reach up to 3000 psi—strong enough to cut through materials and cause injuries. Your local Hingham handyman is insured and has the knowledge to handle this device, along with determining which setting is suitable for which material.
It’s crucial to have dependable attic insulation that keeps your home warm and snug in the winter and circulates fresh air in the summer. Attic insulation can last up to 20 years, but your local Hingham handyman suggests an inspection every 15 years, especially if you don’t remember when it was last replaced. Aging and moisture accumulation will cause the R-value (insulation effectiveness) to decrease over time.
We have qualified carpenters in-house who specialize in furniture repairs, installation and custom carpentry. Whether you need new cabinets, crown molding or a mantel above your fireplace, we can provide beautiful results. The ultimate perk you get with our carpentry services is the option to choose your preferred material, which can be locally-sourced so you know exactly where your wood comes from.
INTERIOR PAINT JOBS
Whether we’ve just installed new drywall panels for you or you want to give your interior a brand new look, we’ll prime and paint the entire area to ensure it looks beautiful and flawless.
CEILING FAN REPLACEMENT
Need something to support your interior insulation? Not only do ceiling fans keep you cool during the summer, but they can also increase your energy efficiency. Did you know that when spinning clockwise, the blades force warm air downward to prevent heated furnace air from rising up too fast? The resulting effect will lower your heating and cooling costs by helping maintain interior temperatures.
DRYER VENT CLEANING
This might be one of the most overlooked tasks when it comes to maintaining your appliances. Cleaning out the lint trap is the first step to keeping your dryer efficient. The next step involves cleaning the vent and hose periodically to prevent clogs. If you are an enthusiastic DIY professional who wants to take matters into their own hands, getting a dryer vent duct cleaning kit will provide you with all the necessary tools. However, if you have severe allergy symptoms and can’t be exposed to dust, call your local Hingham handyman.
Repair Services From Your Hingham Handyman
Despite completing annual upkeep, you can’t be in control of everything, especially when external forces are at play, such as extreme weather conditions, soil shifting or other unpleasant circumstances. For all that unexpected damage, you can get effective repairs from your local Hingham handyman.
SOFFIT AND FASCIA REPAIR
Soffits and fascia are the parts of your roof’s structure closest to the gutters. Your soffit is located beneath the roof eave and connects to the edge of your roof where it meets the siding. As an essential part of your roof eave, it helps to reduce moisture and condensation. It ventilates your attic and helps your home stay dry. Fascia is the horizontal board that connects to your roof rafter’s end and supports your overall gutter system. It also creates a barrier between the outside elements and the inside of your roof.
Both work in alignment with a clean, healthy gutter system that redirects rainwater via a vertical downspout. In the event of a clogged gutter, excess water could spill over your roof and cause damage to your soffit and fascia, enabling moisture to enter your attic and clog the soffit vents. If you don’t remember the last time you had gutter cleaning, you can always rely on your local handyman. Hingham, MA homeowners can get a thorough inspection, plus a new gutter installation consultation, to stop problems before they result in the need for soffit and fascia repair. Of course, if your roofline is already damaged, we can fix that too.
Thanks to advanced technology, we all have access to safer and more energy-efficient windows. However, they can still be damaged, and you might not know until you feel drafts by your window or notice an increased energy bill. For windows to work effectively, they require healthy frames and a flawless installation process. Before you worry about having to invest in a replacement, we can send over a local handyman. Hingham, MA has harsh weather conditions with an excess of rain that can cause a lot of damage if you don’t take the necessary precautions to protect exterior trim like window frames. Your qualified handyman will give you a detailed diagnosis of your window’s health and complete any necessary repairs.
Signs You Need Window Repair:
- Peeling paint on frames, sills, muntins and mullions
- Wood rot on frames, sills and other areas
- Difficulty opening and closing
- Rusty or loose hinges
- Warping frame due to home settling

Not many handyman companies are window experts like your local handyman in Hingham, MA.
