7 Tasks to Leave to Your Experienced, Trusted Handyman
While some household projects are suitable for do-it-yourselfers, tasks for a handyman generally require a higher level of expertise, physical effort or perhaps specific tools not in most homeowner’s collection. When issues arise around the house that you can’t take on yourself or simply don’t have time for, a professional handyman can fill the gap and get the job done. When it’s not doable for the do-it-yourselfer, here are examples of some of the tasks for a handyman.
Simple plumbing issues – Leave the major plumbing projects to a licensed plumber. However, when you need a leaky faucet fixed or a water connection made to a new fixture, a handyman can handle it.
Caulking and weatherstripping – Is your home leaking warm air out or hot air in and raising utility bills? A handyman can take on the tedious task of sealing cracks and gaps in the structure with caulk and weatherstripping doors and windows.
Refinishing decks and porches –We know how sun exposure fades and degrades these outdoor add-ons. Also, how laborious refinishing can be. A handyman can spend the time and trouble required to restore them to like-new appearance.
Pressure Washing –It’s messy, but it’s got to be done. Let a handyman take the reins and keep overflowing water from infiltrating exterior walls that causes interior water damage.
Interior chores and updates – want to spruce up a room with crown molding or new flooring? How about getting around to patching some drywall? A handyman can tackle these small projects that have big results.
Small painting projects –While the bigger jobs are for crews that charge by the project, a handyman’s per-hour rate is perfect for getting a garage door painted or touching-up indoor spots.
Wall hangings – Need a picture or mirror hung or curtains installed? Maybe you’re up for it yourself or maybe you’d rather let a professional handyman deal with the nuisance and details while you enjoy the results.
A handyman sure can lend a hand when you need it most. To learn more about our handyman services or to schedule handyman services for your home, contact Apollo Home.
"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
