Ceiling Condensation is a common problem homeowners face and should be addressed promptly; excess moisture can eventually cause mold and mildew to form — quickly escalating a small problem into a much larger and potentially dangerous ordeal. Not only will you have to pay for a mold remediation company to handle the hazardous growth, but you’ll likely need to hire a contractor to repair the affected areas afterward. What a headache! It is helpful for homeowners to understand what causes the condensation and how to get rid of it before it becomes a bigger issue.
As a homeowner, there are many steps you can take to keep your home’s exterior in good shape. Replacing old siding, trimming away vegetation, and routinely checking the shingles for damage are a few examples. Each of these tasks will help keep your home structurally sound, keeping out things like problem-causing water and pests. One of the easier home maintenance projects that might be overlooked is maintaining the gutter system.
Your gutters are a safeguard to prevent rainwater from pooling at your home’s foundation, causing flooding and damage. They are designed to drain water out and away from your house. However, if they become blocked with leaves and other debris, they can quickly become more of a problem than a solution. The frequent storms throughout the Spring and trees shedding their leaves in the Fall result in the two times of the year when it’s most critical to have clean gutters. Failure to maintain your gutters could have drastic consequences! If you don’t think it’s a big deal and that rainwater will eventually wash away any debris, here are some of the issues you may find yourself dealing with down the road:
There are few things more rewarding than a quiet, serene space to relax. This is one of the big reasons master bathroom remodels are so highly sought after among homeowners! Our recent client in Flower Mound, Texas, felt the same way. Her master bathroom was over 20 years old needed a renovation to better serve as an at-home escape. She came to us with hopes of recreating the space into something she had always wanted; something she could enjoy for years to come!

If there is one common complaint we’ve heard from homeowners throughout the years, it is that they struggled to find a contractor or handyman that would follow-up after their initial conversation. Unfortunately, homeowners are often forced to deal with the frustration of waiting for an estimate that never comes. If you’ve ever experienced a disappearing contractor or non-responsive handyman service, you know how infuriating it is to be seemingly forgotten about when you’re trying to get a project done.
A galley kitchen remodel can be one of the more challenging home projects if improving storage space or changing the layout is the end goal. The limited space in these types of kitchens often prevents major structural changes from being made. Luckily, small changes can still make a big impact! Our recent client in Fort Worth wanted to breathe new life into her narrow 1960’s galley kitchen without sacrificing valuable countertop and cabinet space. Our team was able to identify the changes that could be made to improve storage, functionality, and overall aesthetic. The finished renovation is exactly what our client had in mind!

This coming weekend marks the first day of spring for 2021. Although the mornings and evenings are still chilly, the days are getting warmer, which means some nasty storms will be stirring up soon. Falling in “Tornado Alley,” North Texas often experiences nature’s wrath throughout the spring and summer months with tornadoes, hail, flash floods, and damaging winds.
Although there is no way to control the weather, there are some precautionary steps you can take to prepare your home to endure Mother Nature’s fury. It’s important to get these things done ahead of time, instead of dealing with the damage that is left after a bad storm!
Your front door is not only your first line of defense in keeping your home safe, but it also serves as a focal point and first impression piece for visitors. From choosing the right door to having it ordered and installed correctly, replacing a front door unit can feel like a big project. Our recent clients in Grapevine had been meaning to replace their faulty front door for quite some time, and our handyman division was thrilled to help them get the job done!

If you haven’t done much upkeep in your home for several years, it might feel overwhelming to know where to start. Aside from a major, full-gut remodel in a kitchen or bathroom, there are many smaller projects that can be completed to contribute to a more modern look overall.
Aesthetically speaking, minor upgrades here and there can really make a big impact in your home as a whole as time goes by. One way to go about this is to choose a handful of small projects to complete independently throughout the year, resulting in a beautifully updated home over time. For example, refreshing the interior paint in the spring and replacing dated carpet with a solid-surface flooring in the fall can provide for a modern, updated look come holiday season. It may not be realistic for you to do everything at once, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with tackling small projects individually to slowly transform your dated home!
