Do You Need Property Maintenance Services - Residential & Commercial
Property owners are busy people, whether they are business owners or busy workers who don’t have time to take care of maintenance chores at home. Is a leaky shower head robbing your good night’s sleep, or is your attic insulation deteriorating? Perhaps you have a huge event coming up at your home and need us to pressure wash your front and backyard?
These are inconvenient tasks to fit your schedule, but they remain in the back of your mind because you know it needs to be done. We don’t want you to feel guilty about taking your weekends to relax and want to take all that burden off your shoulders. The good news is that your local Furlong handyman can get most jobs done in a day!
It may not strike everyone as a handyman task, but it is! We take Furlong homeowners’ most dreaded jobs because other than tiresome and grimey, climbing up high ladders is a safety hazard. We care about your safety at your own home, and therefore, our team of insured professionals offers thorough gutter cleaning services so that your home’s structures, sidings and fascia remain efficiently intact.
We always aim for long-term solutions and protection. If you live in a tree-dense area, we recommend installing gutter guards that will protect your gutters from debris before they even get in. It’s a cost-effective preventative solution to protect your fascia from damage and will also extend its lifespan.
We recommend Furlong gutter cleaning at least twice a year, depending on your area's weather severity and tree density.
Pressure washing is not like your traditional cleaning tasks where you scrub for hours and get dirty yourself. We may not always notice, but moss and grime build up on our property over the span of months and years, making us forget the original colors and shine that we once knew.
Whether you want to boost your home’s curb appeal or attract new customers to your retail store, the rain and water hose won’t wash away fungi or other stubborn substances. And you certainly don’t want to spend hours collecting elbow grease while cleaning concrete. Our skilled team at Mr. Handyman offers pressure washing as your best solution to maintaining your home or retail store’s exterior looks.
Power washing services are most suitable for:
- Outdoor furniture
- Garage floors
- Decks, porches, patios
- Large corporate, concrete buildings
- Public car parks
DRYER VENT CLEANING
We added this important service to remind Furlong homeowners that clogged dryer vents could have fatal consequences. Excessive lint and debris that obstruct the vent could cause a fire. Luckily, our dryer gives us ealy telltale signs if something is not working properly, such as slow drying, clothes feeling extra hot, burning smells and lint flap not opening.
Dryer vent cleaning includes buildup removal to enable airflow. Experts recommend you clean your dryer ducts at least twice a year to avoid the risk of dryer duct fires.
MORE VENT CLEANING & ATTIC FAN INSTALLATION
Furlong homeowners know how important it is for their attic and roof vents to allow clean airflow to circulate through the attic. This way, it stays dry, keeps the air fresh and your home cool in the summer heat.
Air duct cleaning is an important home maintenance task because they collect too much moisture and will start to grow mold and mildew over time. A frequent clean can avoid moldy air blowing through your home or business.
An attic fan will help increase your energy efficiency by keeping your home cool in the summer as it backs up your AC. In the winter, it insulates your home properly. It will also keep your roof in good condition for longer.
Note: Electrical services are subject to state and local licensing requirements, and therefore, may not be available at all locations. Your friendly team at Mr. Handyman of Newtown and Yardley is happy to provide you with more information.

Furlong Property Repair & Installation Services
Even when we keep up annual maintenance services, certain interior parts will eventually show signs of deterioration due to age. Gradual wear and accidental damage could be signs of poor-quality materials or even poor installation from the start.
Your local Furlong handyman is happy to inspect your concern areas in further detail. Whether you have a rotting sidewall, broken ceiling fan or need advice on garage door weather stripping, our specialized technicians will give you an honest opinion and advice.
SOFFIT, FASCIA & SIDING REPAIR
Soffit and fascia are the fancy names of your roof’s structure closest to the gutters. Clogged gutters give water nowhere to go, which means your soffit and fascia can’t hold the weight and are likely to break. The damage could also potentially affect your home’s siding, causing water damage and cracks that allow an infestation of insects, birds and rodents.
If you have missed a couple of gutter cleaning services, it’s worth checking your soffit for leaks. As an essential part of your roof eave, it aids in reducing moisture and condensation. Your fascia is a horizontal board that connects to your roof rafter’s end and supports your overall gutter system by creating a barrier between the outside elements and inside your roof. If both have suffered water damage and are compromising your roof’s system, your local Furlong handyman will fix them for you.
Siding is known to be the exterior shield of your house, designed to protect it from weather damage and acting as a deterrent. When it’s well-maintained, sidings can last up to 50 years, but sometimes, it’s not in our control to keep external damages away. Severe weather can cause warping, bulging, dents, gaps and holes. Eventually, it wears out so much and begins to compromise our home’s wall insulation.
FURLONG WOOD ROT REPAIR
Wood rot is common in humid climates like New Jersey, requiring homeowners and commercial property owners to inspect behind their walls frequently. This unpleasant form of decay is caused by wood-eating fungi that thrive in timber with a moisture content of 20 percent. The higher the moisture content, the faster it will grow and spread, damaging the wood on your deck, window frame and siding.
Some of the early warning signs of wood rot include:
- Discolored wood patches (yellow, brown, white)
- Spongy, stringy texture
- Timber breaking and crumbling into sawdust
Wood rot repair might involve replacing the affected timber with durable pressure-treated lumber. We apply a coat of paint or wood stain and finish it with sealant to make it water-resistant and rot-proof.
Small patches of rot are often treatable if your Furlong handyman carefully scrapes out the rotten material and fills the gap with epoxy wood filler.
WINDOW FRAME & DOOR INSTALLATION, REPAIR, REPLACEMENT
We help install, repair and replace interior and exterior doors and windows. Whether it’s bothersome drafts that need caulking or squeaky doors that need oiling, you can count on us to get the job done right.
Doors receive a lot of wear and tear over time and are also susceptible to wood rot if they are badly maintained and don’t have a protective finish. Our certified technicians can inspect your doors and windows and evaluate how they contribute to your home’s energy efficiency.
Because our goal is your safety and comfort, we put a lot of value on long-term solutions and will tell you honestly if we recommend replacement rather than temporary solution repairs.
You will never fall short at Mr. Handyman; we’ll have you covered in no time.
Furlong Home Remodeling Services
If you’re planning a home remodel, you’re probably overwhelmed by all the little aspects that contribute to it. What if we tell you that all you need to do is set a budget and build a manageable time? Because our team of Furlong handyman pros will take care of the rest.
It’s less likely for Furlong homeowners to do that all alone, so they often make a contracting list of carpenters, electricians and other specialists. The good news is that our versatile and insured handyman team can handle all that.
Here are some of the most common remodeling services that we offer to homeowners:
- Basement: Do you have an unfinished basement that could benefit from an upgrade? It’s worth making it a liveable space, playroom or man cave, as it will increase your ROI in the future.
- Bathroom: There is no bathroom task we can’t renovate. Common remodeling services involve tub, shower or toilet installations, new tiles or walls.
- Kitchen: We are your team if you want new countertops, cupboards and cabinets. We also recommend inspecting your drywall during a remodel to ensure it’s in good shape.
