Serving Loveland And Surrounding Areas
Whether you live within Loveland’s city limits or are in one of the other surrounding areas of Cincinnati, such as West Chester, Mason, or Blue Ash, you know just how much work homeownership can be. First-time home buyers think that the hardest part of becoming homeowners is the buying process, and certainly, it can be when the market is hot. But the real work starts when you move into your home and realize how difficult it is to stay on top of all of the repairs and maintenance.
Our Loveland handyman team provides homeowners and business owners in Loveland and beyond with a wide range of services, including outdoor repair services, indoor repair services, maintenance services, and larger projects such as whole house improvement projects. Whether you need minor home repairs or a total bathroom remodel, our skilled Loveland handyman professionals put an equal amount of passion into each customer’s service appointment.
Our Top Loveland Handyman Services
Of all the local services we offer, drywall repair and installation (including ceiling repair), flooring installation, and a variety of custom carpentry projects are some of our most popular. Our Loveland handyman professionals are highly skilled in both general contracting jobs and highly detailed carpentry, truly making them jacks of all trades.
CEILING REPAIR AND DRYWALL INSTALLATION
Ceilings and walls are responsible for hiding ugly wiring and joists, as well as providing additional structural support to your home. This makes keeping your walls in great condition of the utmost importance, but drywall is usually the first thing in your home to get damaged. Whether you require minor repairs for nail holes and doorknob holes or more major repairs to large cracks and significant water damage, a qualified handyman in Loveland, OH can get your walls and ceilings looking like new again.
Both ceilings and walls are primarily made up of Sheetrock, also known more generally as drywall. The two main components of Sheetrock are a gypsum rock panel with a paper backing on either side. Joint compound or drywall mud and spackle are filler products containing gypsum that can be used to build up damaged areas. Depending on the extent of your damage, our Loveland handyman team will either fill in the damage with joint compound, spackle, and mesh tape or use our drywall patching technique to replace an area of damaged drywall with a new piece of drywall.
If you need total drywall replacement, we can help with that, too. In the image below, our client needed several panels of Sheetrock removed and installed. On the left, you can see that we’ve nailed a couple of panels of Sheetrock to the wooden ceiling beams. Part of the wall behind the kitchen cabinets still needs new drywall, as does part of the ceiling. On the right, you can see the finished result. After nailing new Sheetrock to all exposed areas, we made cutouts for the recessed lighting, placed joint tape over the seams between each panel and coated the seams with multiple layers of mud. We also covered the nail holes with mud and sanded them to create a smooth, perfectly flush surface. The ceiling and walls are now ready to be painted!
FLOORING INSTALLATION AND REPAIR
If there’s one way to update your home, it’s with a flooring installation. While some types of flooring are timeless, others can show their age—think orange shag carpet. Though we also offer flooring repair, many of our customers hire our Loveland handyman professionals to do a total flooring replacement.
We can install and repair three types of flooring:
- Laminate flooring
- Vinyl flooring
- Tile flooring
Laminate and vinyl flooring are popular alternatives to hardwood these days, thanks to significant improvements in 3D printing technology and a lower material cost. Laminate and vinyl are also easier to maintain than hardwood, and they aren’t subject to expanding and shrinking with temperature and humidity fluctuations. Vinyl flooring in particular is completely waterproof.
In the image below, you can see the final result of a flooring installation service we did. Our client purchased stunning luxury vinyl plank flooring for their kitchen that closely resembles real wood. Before installing the planks, we had to remove the old flooring and dispose of it. The condition of the subfloor and underlayment is usually a mystery until we can see it firsthand, and in this case, it showed signs of sagging. Correcting any issues with the underlayment is the most important part of the process, as without doing so, our client could end up with flooring that buckles and moves.
Once the underlayment was level, we got to work installing the vinyl planks, making sure to neatly fit them around the island and walls. To finish, we reinstalled new baseboards and added a transition strip between the kitchen and hallway.
For bathroom flooring installations, our Loveland handyman experts are often asked to install floor tiles. Our customers order their tiles, which often come with spacers, and we bring the supplies for the underlayment and mortar. Similar to vinyl and laminate flooring, perfecting the underlayment is key to ensuring that tiles lay flat. Once the tiles have been laid and the underlayment has cured, we’ll apply grout and, if necessary, a grout sealer.
If you love your current tile, laminate, or vinyl flooring but it’s seen better days, we can also do repairs. Depending on the type of flooring, cracks, and chips may be able to be filled, or if you have extra tiles or planks lying around (or you’re able to find and purchase a replacement), we can remove old, damaged pieces and install new ones.
CUSTOM CARPENTRY PROJECTS
Though more durable materials like vinyl are beginning to replace wood in modern homes, wood is still widely used for interior and exterior products by homeowners in Loveland. Our Loveland handyman experts are regularly called to complete custom carpentry projects, as well as to repair exterior wood that has been damaged by water and is infected with wood rot.
Some of the carpentry projects our expert Loveland handyman can build include:
- Moulding and trim
- Window frames and door frames
- And more!
If you’re a Loveland resident living in an older home, chances are you’ve found yourself in need of wood rot repair services at one time or another. As beautiful as wood is, it can quickly succumb to wood rot if not properly maintained. As discussed in our deck repair tips, wood must be stained and sealed or painted every few years to protect it from being exposed to moisture. If a sealant isn’t regularly applied or paint begins to chip, water will quickly find its way into wood fibres, creating the perfect conditions for wood rot to develop and spread.
Once rot takes hold, the wood will lose its structural integrity and begin to crumble. This can be a safety concern, as in the case of a rotted deck, but it can also be distressing when this happens to an ornamental accent on a historic home, such as original wood pillars that begin to crumble. Our talented Loveland handyman team can remove the area with wood rot and fill this area with wood putty or wood filler. If the area is very large, we’ll remove the affected wood and replace it with new treated wood or PVC for added durability.
In the above image, our customer’s front bay window had succumbed to wood rot. Its proximity to the ground and a front garden bed that was regularly watered had allowed moisture to penetrate the wood. Instead of replacing the rotted wood with new wood, we opted to replace it with PVC panels, which will not rot no matter how much water it is exposed to. Our customer opted to paint the new panels and wood on their own after we completed the installation.
