Property owners are busy people. Whether you are a business owner or a busy worker who doesn’t have the time to take care of maintenance chores—we have all been there. Is the grout cracking on your tile floor in the kitchen, or has your house siding seen better days? Perhaps you are planning a birthday barbecue and need us to pressure wash your deck and backyard?
These are inconvenient tasks to fit your schedule, especially if you know that they will take more time than you anticipate. While organizing events is stressful enough, you don’t want to be doing a two-person job. We don’t want you to overwork or feel guilty about taking your weekends to rest. Count on your Claxton handyman to get that job done in a day!
The joy of gutter cleaning isn’t just grimy and tedious, it’s what every homeowner dreads. No wonder it’s one of the most overlooked maintenance jobs. We wouldn’t just climb up the ladder to see how our gutters are doing unless they have caused some damage. Climbing up high ladders is also a safety hazard to most people, along with staying atop for a great amount of time, scooping out debris. Unfortunately, not everyone has well-inspected ladders in their garage and misses a bent step, a frayed rail sheet, or even rust and corrosion. We recommend bringing in your ladder for safety inspection if you decide to clean your gutters on your own. Otherwise, your certified local handyman, equipped with a gutter scoop, gloves, safety glasses, and a tarp, is happy to take this burden off your shoulders.
While already up there, our technician will also inspect your gutter’s shape and functionality. Depending on its age and how it was installed, we take measures to ensure that you won’t have to worry about leaks that could potentially damage your siding, drywall, or basement floor. These mishaps are the most common causes of water damage that could lead to structural damage. Hiring a professional gutter cleaning service can save you lots of problems in the future.
If you live in a tree-dense area, we recommend Claxton gutter cleaning at least once a year to avoid debris from settling. Installing gutter guards will protect your soffit and fascia; it ensures that stormwater will flow away from your home.
ATTIC INSULATION & VENT CLEANING
Claxton homeowners may not go up to the attic much, but they know how important it is for their attic and roof vent to circulate clean airflow. When your attic is clean and dry, the air in your home will be fresh and even keep your home cool in the summer heat.
Mr. Handyman of West Knoxville offers air duct cleaning, which is a necessary home maintenance service that helps control moisture buildup. If left untreated, it will start to grow mold and affect the air that gets blown through your home.
An attic fan will help increase your energy efficiency and help keep your roof in good condition. It also keeps your home cool by backing up your AC in the summer. In the winter, it insulates your home, so heat doesn’t escape.
If you need advice about Claxton attic insulation and learn more about your roof’s structural integrity, we’re happy to be of service. We offer spray foam and cotton denim insulation. Other preventative solutions include hurricane straps, ties, and clip installations on roof trusses to protect from severe storms.
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 West Knoxville can provide you with more information.

Claxton Property Repair & Improvement
Whether you own a residential or commercial home, there is always a certain area that will eventually show signs of aging or deterioration. If underlying issues are involved, your Claxton handyman can conduct a thorough analysis for you and offer preventative measures.
Gradual wear or accidental damage come in an unexpected fashion, and the sooner you deal with them, the fewer problems you will have. Both residential and commercial spaces require safety and comfort to keep workflow and routine going. A drafty window by your desk or a slamming fire exit door is a nuisance that disrupts your concentration.
We can send your local handyman to make all that stop right away, along with these services:
CLAXTON DRYWALL REPAIR
Suppose there is a dent in your wall or your anxious pet scratched too hard while seeking attention. In that case, drywall repair is common in homes and commercial environments, with water damage as the leading trigger. Less severe cases include small holes, which you can fix with minimal patching, using drywall compound and tape, followed by some sanding and painting.
Drywall panels are made of a soft sulfate mineral called gypsum, which is non-combustible and lighter than other wall materials. It’s a popular and affordable interior wall that you will find in most modern homes, also installed as ceilings to replace the old labor-intensive lath and plaster construction. The average drywall thickness is 1/2 inch, and while durable, some boards are water-resistant, though not waterproof. Other variants include cement board and green board, which have waterproofing characteristics and are commonly used behind tile installation in bathrooms. But cracked tile and grout will cause leaks and damage these drywall panels. Our reliable technicians at Mr. Handyman of West Knoxville can inspect the walls behind your tiles and even offer tile repair to manage leaks.
If cutting, mudding, sanding, dusting, taping and painting aren’t your cup of tea, your Claxton handyman is happy to take that job off your hand and even clean up all the mess like nothing ever happened.
We can’t take anyone’s word for it if they say that windows last up to 20 years, as it highly depends on the correct installation and other contributing factors like temperature and climate.
If you believe you might need window replacement, watch out for these common signs:
- Faulty operation
- Cold drafts or heat seeping through
- High condensation between glass panes
- Water damage on frames
- Chipped and faded exteriors
- High energy bills
We offer storm windows with high-insulating properties to help boost energy efficiency and keep your home safe. If you’re unsure, our professional window installers will assess your existing windows for you to determine their condition. As your safety and satisfaction are our top priority, we will give our honest opinion about repair and replacement requirements.
