Do you find yourself shivering when you get close to a window in your home? Do you avoid sitting next to certain windows because you can feel a chilly draft even though they're closed?
If your window frames aren't in good condition when colder weather rolls in, it's not just uncomfortable. The cold can drive your utility bill up way too high—in fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, windows can be responsible for as much as 25% of your heating bill. Even worse, those cold drafts can cause disasters like burst pipes inside your walls.
Stop those nightmares before they happen! This is the perfect time for Mr. Handyman to give your windows a thorough weatherproofing treatment. Depending on what's causing the trouble, window repair options include:
Using sealant foam inside the window frame
Applying window insulation film
Using snakes to manually stop airflow
Hanging insulating drapes
Replacing rotten wood on window frames
Repairing damaged exterior casings
If you're looking for a way to increase the comfort, appeal, and even value of your home, custom carpentry is a great way to accomplish just that.

Elegant Mantels above the fireplace or television
Cabinets in the kitchen, laundry room, mud room, and basement
Window seats or benches with built-in storage
Bookcases and shelving options
Crown molding and wainscoting

Wood Rot Repair
Timber is likely a key material in the construction of your home, like more than 90% of houses in the United States. It's pretty much the ideal building material, with one major weakness: wood rot.
Wood rot is a form of decay caused by wood-eating fungi. The fungus requires warmth and a moisture content of 20% or higher in order to start growing. Wood that’s frequently damp—in kitchens, bathrooms, attics, basements, and outdoors—is highly vulnerable to rot, while wood that is protected from moisture can last hundreds of years without rotting.
Wondering if you have wood rot in your home? Take a look around for these signs:
Discolored patches where the wood is lighter or darker than the surrounding material
Texture changes that appear spongy, stringy, or webbed with cracks
Wood is breaking into cube-shaped bits (this is called cubical fracture)
Chunks or "sawdust" are falling away from the main structure
In very advanced cases, there may be mushrooms growing out of the wood
If you notice any of these symptoms, grab a screwdriver and press it against the suspicious patch. If it sinks right in with little or no resistance, that's wood rot.
When it comes to wood rot, the repair usually involves replacing the wood because there's no way to “un-rot” timber. But, if the decay is not too advanced and the beam would be difficult to remove, your handyman may be able to repair it by scraping out the rotten parts and filling them with epoxy.
