Handyman for small repairs Given the amount of time homeowners spend inside their homes, it’s no surprise that most remodeling dollars end up indoors.

Liven Up Your Landscaping If you’re ready to spruce up your landscaping, you’ll want to do so when the temperatures are relatively cool. While you’re planning your project, be sure to take a look at the grade surrounding your home. Over time, it can become compacted and slope toward your house. Poor grading causes water to flow toward your home, putting your foundation at risk.Hire a Handyman2. Touch It Up If left untouched, your siding could start to rot, mold or warp. Thankfully, a little preventative maintenance can help you avoid any costly siding repairs. If you notice chipping or peeling paint, it’s time to break out the sandpaper, primer, paint and paintbrushes. Most of the time, painting is a project that you can accomplish in an afternoon. But, your project could involve more work than you have time for. If that’s the case, now is a good time to start talking to pros. Pro Tip: Pressure washing your home each spring removes dirt and can help prevent mold and mildew infestations.Hire a Handyman Compare Quotes from Local Painting Pros Search Now3.

If you notice that your gutters are having trouble moving water away from your foundation, or if it’s been a while since you’ve had your roof inspected, it’s a good idea to have a roofing pro stop by for an inspection.Hire a Handyman4.
