Drywall is one of the most popular construction materials for a reason. It was invented in the early 1900s to replace the popular product of the time, plaster. Much lighter, and easier to manufacture and install, compared to plaster, drywall is also unique because it's fire-resistant. Made out of two paper boards that sandwich gypsum—a powdery white or gray sulfate mineral—this distinct construction makes the material non-combustible.
Yet, despite drywall's many beneficial properties, one drawback is that it's quite easy to damage. Wear and tear, hanging pictures, roughhousing children, and excess moisture can all take a toll on your walls. Water damage in particular can wreak havoc on your home once it infiltrates your drywall. Because drywall is so porous, it's very difficult to clean and properly dry it out. Wet walls can cause a range of problems, including structural damage and the spread of bacteria.
The good news is that our technicians are highly skilled at many drywall repairs, including:
- Repair and painting
- Seam/joint taping
- Ceiling repair and installation
- Stucco repair
Door Repair & Installation
Does slamming the door shut so it closes properly sound like a familiar problem? Or perhaps no matter how often you try to shut your door, it slowly swings back open? Since we rely on our doors for privacy, quiet moments alone, and safety, it's imperative they work properly. But like anything in your home, daily use, fluctuating temperatures, and humidity can cause an array of issues with your doors. In fact, drafty doors can actually impact your HVAC system. Prevent high energy bills by staying on top of your door repairs.
To help you maintain this part of your home, our experts can complete the following fixes:
- Air Leaks
- Damaged Jambs
- Rotting / Soft Wood
- Broken Locks
- Screen Damage
- And More!
Your fence is an important part of your home's exterior. It clearly marks property lines, provides privacy, boosts your curb appeal, and keeps playing pets and children safe.

Keep your fence in tip-top shape with the help of our expert technicians. We can complete many fence repairs, including:
- Rot and insect damage
- Missing boards or pickets
- Peeling paint
- Leaning posts

Tiled floors, showers, and backsplashes increase your home's resale value and add a touch of luxury to any space. But when broken, shattered, cracked, and dented, once-beautiful tile looks worn, dingy, and unappealing. Maintaining your home’s appearance is just one reason why you should fix damaged tile quickly. Another is to prevent your loved ones from getting injured. Broken tiles have very sharp edges and could cut your family's hands or feet.
Also, tiles prevent moisture and humidity from damaging your home's drywall and subfloor because they are water resistant. With cracked or missing pieces, there’s nothing preventing moisture from damaging parts of your house. Replace broken tile right away with the help of the experts at Mr. Handyman.
Our technicians have worked with a variety of materials, including:
- Natural stone, including slate and limestone
- Luxury materials like glass
- Ceramic and porcelain
- Synthetic materials like laminate and vinyl
