RICHBORO DRYWALL REPAIR SERVICE
Drywall really doesn't qualify as the most thrilling or noticeable building material, so it's not surprising that it never crosses most people's minds — right up until it has suffered damage and your eyes go straight to the problem area every time you enter the room. However, drywall damage is not just an unsightly cosmetic issue; it can cause some serious problems for homeowners and business owners, including:
- Reducing sound separation between rooms
- Encouraging rodent and insect infestations
- Increasing your utility costs by allowing warm or cool air to escape inside the walls
- Lowering your business credibility in the eyes of customers who, fair or not, are judging based on appearances
Our drywall experts will take care of every step of the repair process, from removing old drywall to mudding, sanding, and joint taping. We'll refinish the wall so the repair is invisible, and even rehang your framed photos and curtains for the finishing touches.
But there's even more to it, and this is where having a multi-skilled Richboro handyman on your side is really useful. Sometimes you know exactly what caused the damage to your drywall — an amateur karate move or naughty pet, for example — but other times, it's more of a mystery. If you're not sure where the problem originated, we'll trace the damage to its source and eliminate that as well so you're not dealing with the same thing in a few weeks or months.
RICHBORO WOOD ROT REPAIR
Wood rot is a form of decay caused by wood-eating fungi that require timber to have a moisture content of 20% or higher to begin growing. That means any timber that is regularly exposed to water, such as your deck or porch, is particularly vulnerable. It can also affect wooden window frames and door frames, along with other exterior trim — especially if your rain gutters are overflowing or broken and unable to protect your home from all the rainwater that falls on your roof. (For the record, just one inch of rain on a 1,000 square foot roof produces a surprising 620 gallons of water.) Wood rot can damage the inside of your home as well, especially areas like underneath a sink with a leaky pipe or in a poorly ventilated bathroom.
Not sure if you've got a wood rot problem? Grab a flashlight and screwdriver and thoroughly examine the timber on your property for these warning signs:
- Patches of discolored wood that appear lighter or darker, or have a white, yellow, or purplish hue
- Texture changes where timber appears spongy, stringy, or webbed with cracks
- Timber breaking into cube-shaped chunks, which is called cubical fracture, or it crumbles into "sawdust"
- In very advanced cases, there may be mushrooms sprouting from the wood
Spot a suspicious patch? Give it a gentle prod with your screwdriver. If it sinks right in with little or no resistance, that's definitely wood rot. There's no way to restore rotted wood to its former condition, so wood rot repair generally involves replacing the affected timber altogether with pressure-treated lumber, then applying a coat of paint or wood stain and finishing with sealant to make it water-resistant. However, if the patch of rot is very small or removing the timber would be prohibitively difficult, your handyman may be able to treat it by scraping out the rotten material and filling the gap with epoxy wood filler.
RICHBORO TILE INSTALLATION AND REPAIRS
Tiles have a powerful effect on the look and feel of kitchens, bathrooms, and other rooms in Richboro. An amazing tile installation is perfect for adding your own personal flair to a room’s design. It’s also an important detail for tying together a great visual design. Broken outdated tiles accomplish the opposite effect. Cracks and missing tiles create visible flaws, and they also open up your home to potential costly complications.
When it comes to tile, it takes someone with experience to properly grout, caulk, and perform all the other key steps involved with tile installation or repairs. Some Richboro homeowners try to do it themselves, but the best option for saving time and effort while guaranteeing you get great results is calling a professional Richboro handyman service provider. Whether you’re planning an entire bathroom remodel or just want new tile for kitchen backsplash, our handyman team members have the skill and expertise to complete your tile project — and get you amazing results!
