Window Repair and Replacement

If you’ve had the misfortune of watching in horror as one of your windows shattered to pieces, you are well aware that you need a replacement. However, windows can be vulnerable to other issues that are not as obvious and just as big of a problem when it comes to the security of your home and the stability of its structure.

A leak in a window frame, for example, can be pretty much invisible yet have a devastating impact on your home. It lets cold air in, which comes with an inflated energy bill—in fact, windows can be responsible for a quarter of your heating bill! Even worse, it lets moisture into the interior of your walls, causing hidden issues like wood rot that can eat away at the timber frame of the building.

Mr. Handyman is your one-stop shop for window installation and repair, from installing brand-new windows to fixing frames. Our window repair and replacement services include:

  • Using sealant foam to stop leaks
  • Applying window insulation film
  • Replacing rotted wood on the inside or outside the window frame
  • Fixing creaking latches and windows that are difficult to open
  • Installing all types of windows, including skylights, casement windows, and bay windows

We'll even take care of all the finishing touches and hang your curtains, drapes, or blinds! You'll be pleasantly surprised at how comfortable your home is when the windows are in good repair.

Gutter Cleaning

Derby, KS is blessed with tons of green areas and parks for you and your families to wind down and connect with nature. From cottonwood trees to hackberry, and American elm, the Wichita Metro Area is home to many tree species. However, living in areas where trees are dense could be problematic for your rain gutters and downspout outlets. Don’t remember the last time you had your gutters cleaned or inspected?

Clogged gutters are common issues that Derby homeowners deal with, but they won’t notice until a series of problems occur, such as damage caused by gutters overloaded with debris, or leaky sections resulting in streaks on home siding.

Inspecting your eavestrough system in advance is crucial in case any damage is evident. Leaks often indicate holes and cracks or loose sections. Although sectional gutters are becoming less common, seamless gutters that provide a neater appearance are not clog-free. Both types require routine cleaning and inspection to remain in decent working order.

In fact, gutter cleaning offers a list of benefits that include:

  • Extends gutter’s shelf life
  • Protects your roof system from water spills
  • Prevents basement flood
  • Protects attic, siding, soffit, and fascia from moisture/water damage
  • Decreases pest and rodent activity

Most gutters are made of lightweight aluminum because it’s easy to install and cost-effective. Over time, its protective coating wears off and could affect the water flow. The surface will be prone to scratches and other damage, allowing moisture to penetrate the material. The sooner you have a trusted Derby handyman rectify this issue, the longer your rain gutters will last. Trust us to use high-quality acrylic bonding primer to restore your system’s original functions.

Deck Repair

When summer arrives, there's nothing better than hanging out on the deck, socializing with friends and family, tending the grill, and just soaking up the sunshine. But if your deck needs repairs, problems such as rotting boards, crumbling stairs, and sinking footings can create dangerous hazards that really put a damper on warm weather fun. For this reason, we encourage Derby homeowners to add deck maintenance to their annual home repair checklist, because you never know the kind of damage the cold winter months might have caused to your exterior living space.

Whatever your deck needs to be transformed into the ideal outdoor living space, leave it to your local handyman. Derby, KS homeowners who see how their deck looks after our work is done may never want to go back inside!

Our deck repair services include:

  • Replacing rotting and loose boards
  • Fixing wobbly railings
  • Replacing rotted stairs
  • Installing footings
  • Repairing screens
  • Fixing grading and drainage issues

Door Replacement

The back door of a home before and after it has been replaced and the frame has been repaired by Mr. Handyman.

When your door has gone through multiple repairs, it’s obviously dear to you, and you want to make sure it meets its shelf life. But it’s hard to determine a door’s shelf life, if the elements are to blame, or if you have neglected some required maintenance in the past.

Wood doors are typically the most sensitive types to encounter problems if you forget to sand and reseal. They’re prone to moisture and even termite damage when you don’t seal any gaps and holes or sand away splinters.

Warning signs that call for repair aren’t always obvious until you find out in the most unexpected ways, and can include problems like:

  • Air leaks
  • High energy bills
  • Cracks and holes in door frame
  • Scratches on threshold
  • Door misalignment
  • Peeling paint
  • Rotted wood
  • Inoperable latch and knob
  • No sound dampening

Door issues become more apparent if you pay attention to the above list. Home settlement can cause misalignment that leads to closing and opening issues. Or if you hear outside noises clearly, your door’s insulation has probably deteriorated. To get the best judgment for repair or replacement, we recommend hiring an experienced handyman. Derby, KS property owners need someone they can trust to help protect their heating and cooling systems by helping them choose an efficient door replacement solution.

There are situations where it’s pointless to fix your door to the bone because its original efficiency is gone. When you hire your local Derby handyman, they will offer you a list of options that will lower your maintenance costs and help you prevent the need for repairs. This does not necessarily include wood doors because they need more maintenance than others.

Steel doors and fiberglass doors have become many Derby property owners’ favorites. With greater fire resistance and fewer maintenance requirements than wood, you won’t have to worry about harsh weather conditions damaging your doors when you use these sturdier alternatives. Feel free to call your local Derby handyman team to learn more about our door installation and replacement options.
