It’s not until you become a homeowner in Westwood that you suddenly become conscientious and picky about the state of your home. Maintenance, repairs and improvements inside and outside of your property are not only a seasonal matter but year-round. In fact, it’s more than just a paint job or interior improvement project like you always see in the movies. Little details include maintaining a healthy deck for your grill and well-insulated doors and windows that back your insulation system. Your local Westwood handyman has helped many residents restore their homes’ looks and functions, dealing with weather-damaged wear and tear immediately before it causes further problems. As the well-known quote states, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” The best way to mitigate the need for costly repairs throughout your home is to stay on top of regular maintenance, including taking preventative measures like thorough inspections and repairs. Although this can be a challenge for most homeowners—after all, there always seems to be something that needs getting done at your property—for your local Westwood handyman, general maintenance is a breeze.
Feel free to ask us about a seasonal checklist that might be useful for you to stay on track of any work that needs to be done. Our reliable handyman service will introduce some popular Westdood handyman services to you, which are primarily preventative maintenance for damage prevention. It often includes minor repairs or parts replacement that will ensure your materials meet their lifespan and continue to serve their purposes. We offer a wide range of comprehensive services designed to keep your home in tip-top shape.
DOOR REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT
Your doors in Westwood serve many important functions beyond separating various rooms. Your front door invites friends, family and neighbors into your home and really adds to your curb appeal. It also keeps your property safe from intruders, severe weather conditions and other external forces. Meanwhile, your interior doors provide privacy and sanctuary from a busy day while keeping your possessions organized in closets and pantries.
Door repair and maintenance are very important and best done by your local handyman. Westwood MA homes need to be equipped with reliable systems and homeowners can count on our expertise—from storm door installation to fixing squeaky hinges; if you have a problem, we have the ultimate solutions for:
- Air leaks
- Damaged jambs
- Rotting/soft wood
- Broken locks
- Screen repairs
Upgrading your interior or exterior door might be one of the best decisions you can make to make your home’s overall insulation more efficient and enhance its safety. If you are a wood lover, you are probably up to date with routine sealing or staining because it’s an essential task in protecting your door from moisture damage. If you have trouble detecting damage on your own, you can leave it to your experienced handyman. Westwood MA property owners can rest easy knowing that our wide range of maintenance work will ensure their doors will serve them for years to come.
Benefits of a Replacement:
- You save on energy bills due to increased efficiency
- You save money on high maintenance and repairs
- You get improved safety and security
What Types Do You Recommend?
Ideally, you want your front doors to last over 30 years, but that’s close to impossible with metal or wood unless you care to maintain it periodically. Metal types require frequent inspections and coating, whereas wooden ones need sealing, varnishing or lacquering. Even then, it’s difficult to guarantee that no moisture will affect its qualities. If you have had metal types that rusted or wooden ones that swelled or rotted, you have probably decided that it was time for something more weather-resistant like fiberglass. Fiberglass doors are made of compression-molded fiberglass and have three major components: skin, frame and core. The core is made of rigid insulation (typically polyurethane material) and glass-reinforced polymer, whereas the frame is made of either treated wood or composite. The skin is usually a layer of artificial grains that make the door appear like wood.
All that said, many Westwood property owners forget that healthy frames play a huge role in keeping your doors healthy and in shape. If you slam the door to prove a point without thinking about our walls and ceiling, trim areas are prone to developing cracks or gaps and will need frequent caulking.

- Patio door repair
- Automatic doors

Keeping your fence in good condition is important to improve the aesthetic of your property, prevent injury to playing children and dogs and keep your property safe. Fences that have fallen into disrepair look unattractive and can seriously take away from your curb appeal. Also, splinters, peeling paint, exposed nails and missing planks could hurt your loved ones if they make contact with the damaged area along your fence. That's why it's integral to stay on top of fence repairs. Granted, fence maintenance can take up quite a bit of your time. So why not hire your local handyman? Westwood MA homeowners deserve some downtime with their loved ones rather than investing extra time in identifying underlying problems, such as spotting wood rot or knowing the severity of the cracks. We can complete numerous jobs, including:
- Replacing missing or damaged boards and pickets
- Cleaning or replacing rusty gate hinges
- Correcting leaning fences, fence posts and fallen panels
- Cleaning and staining old wooden fences
- Replacing damage from rot and insects
- Sanding, painting wood boards
Your local Westwood handyman is also a pro at installing fences along your property. We've worked with many materials, including:
- Wrought iron
Whether you need periodic maintenance or small or large repairs, a detailed inspection is the main perk of hiring a local handyman. Westwood WA property owners can count on our expertise in quickly identifying trouble areas and offering immediate measures to prevent deterioration.
When you’re done with your interior spring cleaning, you might slap your forehead when you take a look around your property’s exterior. Winter remnants are probably unsightly, especially in areas that don’t get much sun. Moss and grime might have settled on your siding and all that heavy snow might have sat on top of your deck for too long. When you hire your local Westwood handyman for pressure washing, we will arrive with our high-pressure water jet that ranges between 750 and 3,000 psi. A quick inspection of the exterior surfaces will help us determine your material’s age and condition before we go ahead with professional cleaning. Depending on the type of dirt or stain, we can also use a power washer with heated water to remove grease, mold and mildew.
Where Can I Use A Pressure Washer?
- Front or backyards with hardscapes like rock for decorations
- Deck, porch, patio
- Garage, driveway
- Tile stone
Benefits of Pressure Washing:
- Prevents damage by clearing clogged gutters, eliminating wasp nests under vinyl sidings and clearing grime buildup
- Promotes health by making our exterior living area more sanitary
- Prepares surface areas for staining, sealing or painting
- Increases curb appeal and keeps your home’s value up
