PALM HARBOR WOOD ROT REPAIR
If you've been living in Palm Harbor for a long time, you're probably well aware of the effects of wood rot on any timber that is outside and exposed to the elements. It can be a big problem for homeowners here because Palm Harbor gets an annual rainfall of about 51 inches, which is considerably higher than the national average of about 38 inches per year. The amount of rain matters because wood rot is a form of decay that affects timber with a moisture content of around 20% or higher, and any wood that is outside, such as your deck, porch fence, shed or play equipment, is constantly being soaked by rain with little or no chance of drying out during rainy seasons. That's why timber that is indoors and never gets damp can stay virtually unchanged for more than a century, while timber that is outdoors is pretty much guaranteed to rot without diligent maintenance and regular refinishing from a Palm Harbor handyman.
Wood rot will worsen and spread over time—in some cases, it can even travel across non-timber surfaces such as masonry, so it is really one of those things that's a lot simpler and less time-consuming to deal with if you catch it early on. Not sure if your home needs wood rot repair services from our handyman team? Grab a flashlight and examine as much of the timber on the exterior of your house as possible, looking for the following signs of trouble:
- Texture changes that make timber look spongy, stringy or webbed with cracks
- Patches of discoloration that are lighter or darker than the rest of the wood, or have a yellow, white, or purplish color
- Wood is crumbling into "sawdust" or breaking apart in cube-shaped chunks (this is called cubical fracture)
- In very advanced cases, there may be mushrooms sprouting from timber
Wood rot eats away at the fibers of timber, so there's no way to restore rotted wood to its former strength, solid condition. That's why fixing wood rot usually involves removing the affected timber entirely and replacing it with new, green-treated wood. We'll then follow up with paint and sealant to give it added moisture protection in the future. But if it would be prohibitively difficult to remove the wood or there are only a few minor patches of rot, your Palm Harbor handyman may be able to fix it by scraping out the rotten parts, filling the holes with epoxy wood filler, and painting over the top so the repair is invisible.

PALM HARBOR DRYWALL REPAIR AND INSTALLATION
Did you know that drywall damage is more than just an unattractive cosmetic issue? Issues like cracks, holes, and water damage can actually make your house a lot less comfortable, efficient, and sanitary. That’s why it’s important to call your Palm Harbor handyman as soon as you see damage. Here are some of the issues that can occur with damaged drywall:
- Make your home less comfortable by decreasing sound separation so you can hear every bump and whisper from the next room
- Encourage rodent and insect infestations by giving opportunistic pests entry and exit points to get inside your walls and run amok, making your home a lot less sanitary for you and leaving a path of destruction behind them
- Cracks and holes can increase your utility bill by allowing warm or cool air from your HVAC to escape inside the walls, so your HVAC system has to operate longer and use more fuel to keep your house at the temperature you have set on your thermostat
Drywall damage could also be a symptom of a larger problem that needs to be addressed. For example, if you see a visible water stain on your drywall and you're not sure how it got there, chances are you have a hidden leak or inadequate ventilation in a humid area like the bathroom.
Hiring an experienced handyman in Palm Harbor, FL can help you avoid the unpleasant consequences of damaged walls and ceilings. We'll take care of every step of the repair process, including:
- Preparing the area with plastic sheeting or drop cloths to help avoid mess
- Removing damaged drywall
- Applying a mesh patch to a small hole, or inserting a support piece for a large patch
- Taping off the seams and corners of the patch
- Applying joint compound over the tape and screw holes
- Sanding the dried joint compound to a smooth, even finish
- Applying texture spray (if necessary)
- Painting and refinishing the wall so the repair is completely invisible
- Rehanging curtains and framed photos for the finishing touches
Commercial Palm Harbor Handyman Services
Whether you're responsible for large corporate businesses or one little independent shop or restaurant, keeping up with maintenance and business repair tasks for a commercial property isn't easy. From pleasing your customers and managing your employees to coming up with strategies to grow your business success, you've got a lot on your plate that can't be easily delegated. That doesn't leave a lot of time to worry about who's going to deal with that cracked tile in the washroom or fix the damage on your exterior wall. Luckily, you can get the help you need from a local, Palm Harbor handyman.
Neglecting those "little" jobs can have a big negative impact on your business. The damage can worsen and spiral out of control until it's bad enough to cause work disruptions or make it difficult for your employees to do their jobs productively.
