Tile Repair and Installation in Quincy, MA
If you've noticed cracked, dented, chipped or shattered tile, it needs to be repaired or replaced promptly by a skilled Quincy handyman. Damage tile is a serious eyesore; a broken backslash or floor will make your otherwise lovely home or commercial property look dingy. But, more importantly, damaged tile is unsafe. Family, friends, pets, employees and even customers might cut themselves on the sharp edge of a shattered tile.
Yet, that's not the only concern when it comes to broken tiles. Since this material is water resistant, it's usually used in areas with a high moisture content, like the kitchen or bathroom. But when broken, water can seep through even the smallest cracks in your tile and damage the drywall or subfloor beneath. Luckily, our handyman experts are pros at tile repair, replacement and installation.
TILE REPAIR VS. NEW INSTALLATION
Homeowners often ask their Quincy handyman if they need to replace an entire floor or wall worth of tile, or if they can simply get a few damaged tiles repaired or replaced while leaving the others where they are. That's a fair question, since you don't want to undergo an entire replacement if you only need a few repairs, and there's no sense in messing around with repairs that won't be adequate to address the damage. In our years of experience with tile, we've realized that the answer really depends on how widespread and severe the damage is.
Just a few tiny chips or a hairline crack can be filled in and concealed with paint so you'd never know they were there, and there's no need to remove and replace any tiles. But if you're dealing with widespread cracks and chips across the whole surface, or the damage is more serious, a total replacement is likely going to be the best choice. If you have one or two smashed tiles, just those pieces could be replaced without removing the undamaged tiles, but that is dependent on whether or not a matching replacement tile can be found. They are often discontinued, and different lots of the same tile may not be identical. Even if a few extras were saved when the original installation was done, they may not be a match anymore because the ones that have been on the floor all this time have taken wear and tear damage and the unused ones have not. Any tile that doesn't perfectly match the others will really stick out in all the wrong ways, so if there's no match available, a total replacement is the best course of action.

Fence Repair in Quincy, MA
Too often, fences are built and then left to weather whatever proverbial storm comes their way. This can leave the structure looking rundown and damaged. Not only do dilapidated fences reduce your property's curb appeal, but they also can be a safety hazard for playing children and pets—or for keeping customers/clients out of areas where you store heavy machinery and goods.
Exposed screws and nails, peeling paint and splintering pickets all need to be fixed as soon as possible, so no one gets hurt. Keep your fence looking great and functioning as it should with the help of our Quincy handyman service professionals.
SIGNS YOU NEED FENCE REPAIR FROM A QUINCY HANDYMAN
If your fence looks like the next strong breeze could take it down to the ground, you already know you're overdue for fence repair services. But, in many cases the signs of damage are not as obvious or easy to spot. To inspect for damage, walk along your entire fence on both sides (if you're able to access both sides) and examine it carefully for these symptoms of disrepair:
- Broken, cracked slats or rails
- Rotting wood
- Weathered, splintery timber
- Peeling paint or flaking wood stain
- Rust stains
- Corrosive build-up
- Leaning or wobbly posts that shift when you touch them
- Bent, warped, or loose panels of chain link
- Parts other than posts are making contact with soil
- Sun-faded vinyl
- Squeaking or loose hinges
- Gate is hard to open and close
If you don't have a fence installed and want to have one put up, or you do have one installed but it's displaying warning signs of damage, count on your Quincy handyman. We are familiar with the state and municipal regulations in Massachusetts and will take the time to make sure the fences we construct are in full compliance with those regulations. You may also need installation services from your local Quincy handyman if you've gotten a notice that your structure violates city bylaws or building permits. It's best to get that taken care of before you receive a fine. If the fence height exceeds the allowed maximum, or it encroaches on city property, it can be shortened or relocated.
FENCING MATERIALS WE CAN WORK WITH
- Wrought iron
- Chain link
