Have you ever noticed something around your house that needed repair—maybe rotting deck boards or holes in drywall—and then simply shrugged your shoulders and walked away? If you answered yes, you're certainly not alone. Not every homeowner has what they need to take care of everything on their home maintenance to-do list, from the correct tools to handiwork know-how.

Even if you are equipped to deal with a nagging repair list, it can be frustrating to work hard all week, waiting for a moment to relax and focus on what matters most to you, only to have every scrap of free time eaten up by household tasks. You can't do it all in just 24 hours per day and you shouldn't be expected to.

Fortunately, there's a way to keep your free time and get your house in fantastic shape: just call Mr. Handyman of Greater Columbia and Eldersburg! Our team of Dayton handyman professionals have years—in most cases, decades—of hands-on experience in the repair trades. Don't bother dealing with the hassle of hiring multiple independent contractors to deal with this, that, and the other thing when Mr. Handyman can cross off every task on your list, quickly and efficiently, with our wide variety of services.

We understand that it can be stressful to have someone working on your home, especially if you've had bad experiences in the past with other service businesses. We're committed to providing a safe, worry-free experience by always treating you and your property with respect. We'll arrive on time for your scheduled appointment, communicate honestly with you, and answer any questions you may have before we begin. That way, we can ensure that the final reveal of your finished project meets or even exceeds your expectations and that you're 100% satisfied with our quality workmanship.

You want your home to look good, so curb appeal is an important consideration, but it's not the only thing that matters when it comes to keeping your house in great shape. Your exterior — from siding and decks to windows and doors — is your home's armor; its first line of defense against damage from excess moisture, rough weather, and even wildlife. (You may be picturing a deer charging your house, but woodpeckers, squirrels, and skunks are the real problems.)

Mr. Handyman offers a wide range of exterior repair and maintenance services to get your house in excellent condition and keep it that way season after season.

Our exterior services include:

  • Window repairs & replacement, including the frame & screen
  • Window shutter installation
  • Door installation & repair
  • Fence installation & repair
  • Gutter cleaning & gutter repair
  • Installing holiday lighting & decorations
  • Pressure washing
  • Soffit & fascia board repair
  • Siding repair
  • Deck, porch, & patio repair & refinishing
  • Awning installation

Are you thinking of leaving a familiar home because it doesn't have the right amenities to accommodate you or a loved one with reduced mobility? Before you make that heart-wrenching choice, talk to Mr. Handyman and see what modifications we can install to make your much-loved home safe and comfortable.

According to a recent AARP survey, 88% of respondents 50 years of age or older said it was extremely important that they have access to services that will allow them to age in place.

Some possible modifications that Mr. Handyman offers are:

  • Installation of guardrails & handrails
  • Grab bar installation
  • Assembling more suitable furniture
  • Widening doorways
  • Putting in threshold ramps
  • Raising toilet seats
  • Enhancing lighting fixtures
  • Lowering tables & countertops
  • Upgrading cabinets & door handles
  • Relocating light switches & electrical sockets


When it comes to maintenance and improvements, the garage is often overlooked—maybe because it's such a utilitarian space that's often a chaotic storage zone or hobby area.

Mr. Handyman provides garage improvement services that are a smart choice to greatly increase functionality and make it a place you actually want to spend time in.

Garage door opener installation: Screeeeeeeeech... if your garage door makes that horrible noise whenever it opens, or it opens in fits and jerks, or it doesn't open at all and you have to get out of your car to open it manually, we can install a new opener and get it back in perfect working order.

Garage floor coating: A fresh coating product on your garage floor will improve appearance, but it also repels oil stains, hides imperfections, and contains anti-skid additives that will keep your wheels (and your feet) where they're supposed to be in rainy or snowy conditions.

Garage organization and storage: If you're sick of having piles of boxes, sports equipment, hobby supplies, and other items strewn all over your garage, we can stop the madness! Mr. Handyman will add storage racks, cabinets, and countertops, and find an inspired storage solution for every problem you throw at us, so there's a place for everything and everything is in its place.
