Your Experienced Handyman in Southmayd, TX

From the green pastures dotted with horses and cows to the neighborly folks who call it home, Southmayd is a hidden gem in North Texas. It is a suburban town with all the charm of a rural Texas farming community, combined with easy access to shopping and entertainment amenities in Sherman. Local residents have everything they need at their fingertips, including expert Southmayd handyman services, but they also get peace and quiet away from the hustle of the Metroplex just an hour's drive away.

It's no wonder that the people of Southmayd are proud of their community and want to keep their residential properties in great shape. That can be a big challenge, though. Not every homeowner has the know-how, equipment or tools to take care of property maintenance tasks and repairs—and most people are short on time to actually get all those nagging handyman jobs done. Have you ever noticed a problem around your Southmayd home, such as rotting wood on the deck or holes in the drywall, and then shrugged your shoulders and walked away? If you answered yes, you are certainly not alone. It's completely understandable. No one person can handle everything, and you shouldn't be expected to try.

You may be concerned that hiring multiple independent contractors to take care of this, that and the other thing will turn into a lot of hassle and expense. Fortunately, there's a convenient, one-call solution to get every repair, maintenance and improvement task crossed off your to-do list quickly and effectively: call the team of service professionals at Mr. Handyman of Midwest Collin County. Our Southmayd handyman team has years—and in some cases, decades—of professional experience in home improvement and repair services, so we have the skill and training necessary to deliver the highest standards of exemplary customer service and outstanding workmanship on every job.

Flooring Installation in Southmayd, TX

The floors in your home are critical parts of the house, and not just because they give you somewhere to stand. Flooring takes up a huge amount of visual space in any given room, so it will really make or break the style and design of a room. Appearances aren't everything, but they are important—and you may be truly surprised by the difference that new flooring installation will make when it’s completed by a professional Southmayd handyman.

There is a vast array of materials, colors, shapes, sizes, textures and patterns of flooring available, so choosing the ideal one for your home could be a big challenge. You can narrow it down by considering your top priorities for the floor in this room. Does it need to be waterproof or water-resistant? Is it important that it be durable and long-lasting? How much maintenance are you willing to do? For example, natural stone tiles like slate are strikingly beautiful, but they are scuffed easily and need to be resealed regularly to keep them looking good. Ceramic tile isn't as flashy, but it's a cost-effective choice that is highly durable and nearly maintenance-free.

Most people love the look of hardwood floors, and they blend in perfectly with design schemes that range from rustic and old-fashioned to elegant and minimalist. Solid hardwood can be sanded down and refinished many times, and it can last well over 100 years with proper care and maintenance from a skilled handyman. But it does have some downsides as well. It is prone to warping or rotting when it's exposed to excess water, so it's not the best choice for moisture-prone or high-humidity areas. It's also difficult to install as it needs to be nailed down to a subfloor and can't be installed over concrete without a vapor barrier.

Engineered wood is a hardwood alternative made of a thin veneer of hardwood bonded to a premium plywood backing. It looks the same as solid hardwood, but it's a lot more moisture-resistant and can be installed over concrete without a vapor barrier. But, it can only be sanded down and refinished once or maybe twice, and will only last about 30 years before it needs a replacement.

It pays to consider the pros and cons of various options before deciding so you can make an informed decision about a flooring type that will serve your household well for a long time. Types of flooring we install in Southmayd include:

  • Tile: porcelain, ceramic, glass, slate, granite, marble, quarry, mosaic, etc.

  • Solid hardwood planks: oak, maple, hickory, walnut, cherry, etc.

  • Engineered wood or cork

  • Vinyl tile or vinyl planks

  • Laminate flooring

  • Linoleum

Southmayd Garage Services

A garage is a highly utilitarian space that is often neglected when the time comes to call a handyman for repairs or improvements. That could be because it's not the kind of place where people usually gather or relax. But if you are the type of person who values having a place for everything and everything in its place, a disorganized garage might also be a big source of stress that makes you just want to shut the door and never look in the garage again.

Our handyman team offers many garage services, such as installing organization and storage options that will give you back your garage while providing additional space for hobbies, a work bench or even more storage. You could even park your car or truck in there!

Our garage solutions include Southmayd handyman services like:

  • Storage Installation: Banish the clutter of random boxes and piles of stuff that don't have anywhere better to go. We can install custom storage solutions such as cabinets, shelving, bins, hooks, racks for sports equipment, pegboards for tools and lots more, so you can save space by storing everything neatly.

  • Garage Door Weather Stripping: Do you shiver every time you enter the garage because there's cold air drafts coming in around the garage door? That's a sign that the weather stripping has deteriorated, and it's probably letting in plenty of moisture along with those cold drafts. We will remove the damaged weather stripping and install new material to keep your garage cozy.

  • Garage Floor Coating: There are a lot of benefits that come with a fresh garage floor coating—it hides imperfections in the concrete, repels oil stains and makes the floor easier to maintain. It also contains anti-skid additives that help to keep your wheels on track in rainy, wet conditions.

Southmayd Siding Repair

Siding is like your home's armor, its first line of defense against harsh weather, moisture incursion and even wildlife attacks—if you have wood siding, you probably know all about the trouble woodpeckers cause. When your siding is in rough shape it lowers your home's curb appeal, but worse than that, it lets in moisture and drafts that could cause serious problems for your property—and your bank account, via your monthly energy bill.

If you have a big hole in your siding, you already know you need siding repair. But sometimes the signs that your siding needs to be repaired or replaced aren't as obvious. Walk around your building and examine your siding from as many angles as possible, or call your local Southmayd handyman to perform an inspection.

Signs of siding damage that needs to be repaired include:

  • Cracks, holes or gaps

  • Missing segments of siding

  • Siding is sun-faded or discolored

  • Bulging outward, cupping inward and other signs of warping

  • You feel air drafts coming from the walls inside your home

  • Moisture damage inside your home such as water stains on the walls or ceiling, or mold and mildew growth

  • Your energy bills are increasing and you're not sure why

There's another reason you may want to change your siding. If you have a high-maintenance siding material like natural stone or wood and you simply don't have the time or inclination to keep it maintained, consider having it replaced with a material that requires a lot less maintenance. Premium vinyl siding panels are a very low maintenance, attractive, cost-effective option. Need to know more? Here are seven signs that siding repair and replacement are the Southmayd handyman services you need.

Exterior Southmayd Handyman Services

Are you thinking of selling your Southmayd house in the near future and looking for ways that a handyman could increase property value to get a good return on your investment? Or, maybe you have no intention of moving and simply want to keep your home looking its very best. You could accomplish both of those goals with exterior maintenance and repair services, such as pressure washing or deck repair, that will improve your property value by boosting your curb appeal.

If you've never seen pressure washing in action before, the dramatic difference it makes can be a surprise. For example, an old brick patio that is covered in grimy moss can be made to look as good as the day it was installed with professional pressure washing service from a skilled handyman.

The pressure part is what makes it so effective—a pressure washer is capable of producing pressures that range from 750 to 3,000 psi (pound-force per square inch). That's powerful enough to blast away built-up grime, dirt, moss, algae, loose paint, harmful bacteria, plant growth and other unwelcome substances that other cleaning methods just can't budge.
