We Are Specialists In These Areas

Home repair involves the diagnosis and resolution of problems in a home, and is related to home maintenance to avoid such problems. Many types of repairs are "do it yourself" (DIY) projects, while others may be so complicated, time-consuming or risky as to suggest the assistance of a qualified handyman, property manager, contractor/builder, or other professionals.

Minor repairs

Minor repairs include all activities that require creativity and cannot be classified in any other area. In the list above, I have tried to highlight a few minor jobs that may arise in real estate. It is often the case that damage occurs in consumer goods and that repairing it prolongs the life of the object, however, the method of repair is still unknown at the time the damage occurs. Such could be a torn shelf that has become unusable with the destruction of some of its furniture elements. In this case, there may be several options for us to improve the furniture, from which we try to choose the practical and aesthetic optimum.

Sorting after moving

After moving, many aspects need to be taken into account when placing the objects. For instance if we are taking possession of a property that has not been completely renovated, it is worthwhile to adapt to the existing wall and cladding defects. When placing pictures, mirrors, objects, furniture, we take into account previous holes, cracks and defects in the wall and design the equipment accordingly. Of course, I recommend painting before, if you have the intention, the time and the financial framework.

After the placement of the technical devices, a lot of cables are often misplaced on the ground, which gives the property an aesthetic deficit. However cables can be clamped together with a cable tie or a velcro cable clamp made for this purpose. Where possible, it is possible to hide cables behind skirting boards, or by placing an adhesive cable duct on a wall, by placing a step-resistant cable duct, we can arrange our cables on the floor.

Scanning wall

When placing objects, it is recommended to examine the wall or floor with a wall scanner before making a hole. In other words this will prevent you from drilling into an electrical line, heating pipe, or water pressure pipe.

Minor repairs could be safer by scanning wall with professional tool beforehand.

With a professional tool, such unwanted outcomes can be avoided in 99 percent of cases. One hand deep-running tubes are not detected by the scanner (material-dependent 5-10 cm. On the other hand the performance of the test is of a higher professional standard than immediate hole drilling.

Other stuff

Minor repairs can also be performed on bicycles, check brakes, puncture repair, external replacement, shift adjustment.

Work around the house

For works around the house, I list the handyman activities that need to be done outside the walls of the building, such as preserving the materials used outdoors (wood, metal, concrete, brick …). We can take care of the increase of the service life of the materials by surface treatment and coating, at the same time it is essential to properly prepare the surfaces before starting the work. For planning work around the house, I recommend my blog post below.

The second part of the outdoor tasks is provided by the man-made environment. Here we create garden structures using inanimate materials (stone, concrete, ceramics …). A well-constructed garden structure (sidewalk, stairs, oven …) can be maintenance-free for a long time. In contrast to the green area found in most of the garden, where continuous human intervention is required. The garden building tasks of the work around the house are labor intensive. As a handyman I can only help with minor garden building work.

Thirdly, most of the tasks around the house are provided by the maintenance of the green space in the gardens. These include mowing, hedge mowing and weeding, pruning, planting, and watering plants.

Dewatering irrigation systems

As a separate item, I would mention the dewatering and winterization of irrigation systems, which must be done at the end of the season, at the latest before the onset of frosts, in order to avoid damaging the system.

Tipical work around the house is automated watering systems could be dewatered by compressor.

The pricing of the work is subject to a different fee than the handyman work, which can be found in the table of other fees in the detailed pricing.

Electrical installation work

Electrical installation works:
-installation of light sources
-assembly of plugs and switches
-cable drainage, cable ducting
-building new circuits and switches
-garden lighting installation
-fuse and fuse board replacement
-Installation of LED light sources and low current systems

Electrical installation work

Electrical installation work may involve the replacement, supplementation and development of light sources. The purpose of this is to supplement the lighting system, possibly to achieve a higher brightness. At the same time, it is possible to modernize the system in connection with an electrical installation task, when the customer can save energy and support sustainability by replacing the lighting fixtures. The use of LED lighting is widespread both inside and outside buildings, and we have a variety of shapes, brightness and control modes. One of the latest ways to control it is smart home solutions that complement mechanical switches, where the system operator can manage the devices built into the system remotely from an armchair or even in the presence of a WIFI network.

Electrical installation of smart LED light

A typical electrical installation task is to replace the sockets as they age or to professionally and safely repair the wall protrusion caused by use. Replacing switches as an electrical installation job may appear to increase damage, aesthetics, and waterproofing.

Electrical installation of broken socket.

Electrical installation work is still building new networks. This requires testing the load capacity of the system and routing the cables, designing the circuit and consumers. In the case of retrofitting, this is usually solved with a cable duct routed outside the wall, but it is also possible to lower the wall in this case, where restorative painting is required.
There may even be a failure of the electrical system due to overload, aging of the insulation, thinning, or a short circuit due to possible mechanical effects. Exploring, repairing and replacing part of the system is also one of the most interesting parts of the electrical installation business.

Fuse board replacement and renovation

Many old-built homes typically have a fuse board with a fuse. As its operation can only be solved by replacing the fuses, electrical installation assignments include fuse board modernization. In this case, the entire board is replaced and the fuses are replaced by circuit breakers, the reconnection of which is only one movement. On the other hand, the work carried out on the fuse boards can be supplemented by the installation of a circuit breaker (RCD) and the periodic replacement of circuit breakers.

Installation of fuse board. Taking the old stuff out and putting new back.

Garden lighting

For garden lighting, moisture and the mechanical stress of the pipes laid in the ground must be taken into account. Improving the existing garden lighting, or possibly supplying the system with a twilight switch, is also an interesting task for an electrician. Further mention should be made of replacing garden consumers with a higher-light but lower-consumption LED version. This can make garden evenings more colorful and traffic around the house safer.

Wall Painting

Wall painting is usually carried out every 5 years in the area of ​​our apartment or house. In this case, the handyman removes the housing elements that you want to protect during painting and that can cause confusion in the work. It takes care of the coverings of the room, which are covered with ladder paint paper or painter nylon. Wall dyeing, even if not an expanding intervention, can result in dust and paint odor. For this reason, it is recommended to separate the area affected by the renovation painting from the rest of the apartment. In this case, it is possible to professionally repair cracks in the wall, which should be repaired with netting. It is also possible to repair stains caused by soaking before staining. A prerequisite for this is the professional repair of the soaking defect and the completely dry masonry.

Various putty materials are used in repair work prior to wall painting. Plaster material and possible drywall replacement may be required to correct major defects. Soaking stains on soaked surfaces typically penetrate the painted surface, even after complete drying has been ensured. In this case, a pre-treatment primer is applied.

Painting wall in different colors,

Upon completion of the preparatory work, it is necessary to dust the wall before starting the cleanliness painting. Until then, we also have the option to finalize the color and type of paint used. It is recommended to start with the lighter shade in terms of choosing a darker shade. However, there are paints that have good opacity and when painted with multiple coats, a light color can be applied to a darker previous coat. Several companies are engaged in the production of premixed colors, such as the color scheme of Poly-Farbe Platinium. These are excellent for color consistency and a designable end result.

After cleaning, there is nothing left but to enjoy the end result.

Glaze and enamel painting

In addition to wall painting, the renovation of wooden doors and windows, cornices and railings also occurs in households. Here, too, pre-painting surface preparation is essential. The handyman then removes the loose, corroded parts using a paint scraper, heat gun, belt or vibratory sander. Paint can be started on a clean and dust-free surface after applying the appropriate pesticides, impregnating and paint restorers.

Laying and laminate flooring

Laying tile

For a handyman, cladding is a surface-making activity that can provide a durable and aesthetic surface for typically wet and heavier rooms. The cladding of the rooms begins with the design. Here you decide what floor tiles and tiles will be used, their spatial location, and the distance and color of the joints.

Like any construction activity, tile laying begins with preparation. The previous tile is removed, the unevenness of the work surface is corrected, the loose parts are broken with a chisel and repaired with the appropriate material. Before starting work, we start by planning construction. We plan to cover the area to give it aesthetically pleasing, tightening the diagonal if necessary. To lay the cover, we select the tile adhesive that suits the stress and the need for the application.

It is advisable to start laying the floor tile from the inside of the room to the outside and leave a space for a cladding rail at the entrance to the room. It is important to leave a expansion gap at the junction of the wall plane and the base. When tiling wet areas, apply a waterproofing layer before gluing. For the contact of surfaces, it is important to place a waterproofing tape that can adapt to the different movements of the surfaces.

Repairing tile

By repairing tiles, we mean the replacement of damaged tiles and tiles. It is important to make a reserve of the purchased materials during the construction period. A spare tile can then be useful! During repair, carefully remove the damaged tile after removing the joint. After removing previous adhesive and loose surfaces, glue the sheet that fits into the gap. If you do not have the exact type and color of the joint, we will try to choose the right joint material through experience. If the match is perfect, the color of the old and new joints may be different. This can be eliminated by renovating the old part joint.

Laminate flooring

Between tiling activities, I report laying laminate flooring. Here it is important to use a perfectly horizontal surface, a good quality washer foam and a dillation gap. As laminate flooring is water sensitive and watertight, it is not recommended for use in rooms that get wet from below.

Laminate flooring and border screwing can be seen on the picture.

Small work in bathroom

Most of the small work that often occurs in bathrooms is related to the increased water and vapor load in the room. Standing in the way of running water is a difficult task, for which precise construction and frequent replacement of materials and condition assessment offer a solution. The choice of high-quality material and equipment built into the bathrooms is essential to minimize water damage. The “always better” rule applies in this area, as this will minimize the risks. Small jobs can occur here, such as replacing the silicone on the wall fitting of the shower tray and tub.

Small work as sealing the shower cabin with silicone.

Insulation inspection of some parts of the shower cabin, cracked shower tray replacement, connection pipe replacement. Replacement of bathroom faucets and in particular the use of a flexible connection pipe under constant high pressure. This should not only be done if it is already faulty, but should be replaced proactively. These lower breath interventions greatly increase safety and protect the condition of our property and adjacent properties.

Small work in bathroom is to change the toilette lid.

Periodic loosening and turning of toilet boards may cause minor repetitive repairs, but in the event of damage, it may also be necessary to replace them. In this case, it is worth choosing a higher quality antibacterial, anti-condensation type, preferably equipped with a metal hinge system.

Changing toilette lid to "soft close" type.

Clogging basic

Clogging can usually be remedied in the initial stages of the drainage system. The clogging of the washbasin can often be improved by dismantling the siphon and possibly pumping it of an industrial nature. Pumping and cleaning the shower and bath drain can also solve the problem of clogging. The industrial anti-clogging pump delivers high pressure air to the drain system, which pushes the materials responsible for clogging further through the piping system. An important risk when using old and poor quality fasteners is that they can cause damage to the sink or shower siphon. Thus, in the end, the poor quality part must also be replaced. There is an additional charge for this type of congestion removal, which can be found in the other charges section of the detailed charge.

Bathroom lights

Reviewing the installation of bathroom lighting is extremely important because of the wet room feature. Lighting should be waterproof, properly grounded and the placement of switches and sockets is also important for the type of switches.

Setting bathroom light as a small work in bathroom.

It is advisable to use LED lighting, because in the case of LEDs, we operate the lighting with low-current, low-voltage direct current, which does not cause a danger to life even in the event of a fault.

Small repairs in Kitchen

There can be many problems in our kitchens that can be solved through small repairs. One such operation is the silicone seal along the worktop, around the sink, and elsewhere. It should also be emphasized that the kitchen faucet is under constant pressure, it is important to periodically replace the faucets and the flexible connection pipe connecting the faucets. By intervening, we can reduce the possibility of water damage to our property. In addition, you may need to replace or repair handles, tighten retract hinges, secure shelf racks, and perform other small repair tasks. In addition, the installation of cladding, wall tiles and wall cladding to protect against splashing water and oil may require more labor-intensive work.

With regard to kitchen furniture, it is also possible to assemble and install the kitchen furniture mounted on the hob, to fix and cut out the worktop, to install the sink tray and the hob. You can get more information about assembling furniture within the services.

Furniture assembly

On this page I would like to introduce the activity of furniture assembly to the dear reader. The process, as always, begins with planning. In this case, the handyman expands the contents of the package and identifies each item and compares it with the assembly plan. Usually, furniture stores provide detailed descriptions of products, which helps even an inexperienced DIY to successfully assemble furniture. The most commonly used items during work are Allen and Phillips screws, furniture tightening screws, nails. The tools used are an Allen key, a screwdriver, a hammer, a multifunctional pliers or a cordless screwdriver with a replaceable head.

Furniture assembly could be a baby cot erection starting from the bits and pieces.

After assembling the furniture, we have to place the finished furniture or furniture in the space. If you are unsure about the contribution of furniture to the overall picture, we have the option to use an online design program in some stores. Fixing the assembled furniture is one of the most important tasks of a handyman. Some furniture is overturned and proper and secure fastening can protect the user from damage.

Disassembly of furniture

The opposite process of furniture erection is the professional disassembly of furniture that is already in use. In this case, the proper packaging of the fastening elements, which can be linked to the elements of the associated furniture, is a very important task. It is important for the specialist to focus not only on disassembly but also on the future assembly of the furniture. For more complex furniture, we can also make an assembly plan at the same time as disassembly.

Carpentry

Under the topic of furniture assembly, I mention the feasibility of basic carpentry industrial work and repairs. Based on a suitable design and selected material, I can implement custom furniture, even without screws. Planed wooden elements can be used to make stained, natural-colored lacquered seats and cornices.
