The Best Way to Remodel? Hire a Handyman in Chandler (Conclusion)

By on Jan 29, 2016 in Uncategorized |

When you are doing a kitchen remodeling project, it’s all about the details As we covered previously, one of the things a handyman is going to do is open all the boxes and inspect each cabinet to make sure they are ready to go. The Final Stages of Kitchen Remodeling Another thing that a lot of people overlook with cabinet installation is spacers.  Spacers are pieces of lumber or other material that either match or complement the cabinets you’re are installing.  With a professional handyman they’re going to make sure that your spacers match the cabinets you’re choosing. Spacers provide clearance for other hardware and are often used as fillers to extend the cabinet face for a clean fit. Most manufacturers will provide spacers in the same color and finish as your cabinets, but if the cabinets are unfinished, your handyman in Chandler  will know to stain extra slats of wood in varying sizes so they’ll be ready to go when you begin installation. It’s another of those little details that tends to be overlooked, particularly with a do it yourself job. A Chandler General Contractor and Your Remodeling Project Make no mistake.  There’s a fair amount of experience necessary to properly install kitchen cabinetry. If you have no experience, it’s worth it to hire a general contractor to do this part of your home improvement project. Cabinets must be properly leveled and if you have old walls and floors, it’s tricky to get them accurately lined up to prevent future misalignment. Also, nothing looks worse than seeing a major difference in the placement of cabinets surrounding a window. Small differences create an oddball look since windows tend to draw the eye.  You’ll be aware of it on a subconscious level. You don’t want a kitchen you’re going to regret later on.  You’re going to want a showpiece, and you’re going to want to be able to use it without any problems or hassles later on.  You also don’t want to damage your cabinets while you’re installing them.  And considering how awkward they are to install, this is a real concern. There are two ways to deal with kitchen remodeling.  You can try to do it yourself, and come to the conclusion that...

The Best Way to Remodel? Hire a Handyman in Chandler

Hiring a handyman in Chandler is the best way to remodel your home.  Why?  Well, because of the combination of skill, experience, and licensure. Take a look at a simple project like cabinet installation. Why You Should Have a Handyman Install Your Cabinets and Appliances You should really hire a handyman to install your cabinets.  Why?  Because so much can go wrong.  Installing cabinets can be like any project.  It has a process that must be followed implicitly. When you measure your cabinets and measure the space they’re going in, what can go wrong?  Inaccurate measurements for one.  And this is the biggest thing that can go wrong.  It’s a root cause in fact.   One slip, and you have some of your cabinets installed right and a bunch of left over materials. Most cabinets are mounted high. So miscalculating the size and height of your cabinets is one of the easiest ways to cause problems. If you’ve got high ceilings, you’re going to have a very noticeable gap if you’re installing standard sized cabinets.  Mounting them higher is not really an option as you’re going to be constantly up and down on step ladders.  In fact, you may want to install cabinets based on how short or tall you are.  And while we’re on the subject of measurements, what about replacing appliances. If you’re replacing appliances, be sure to measure them. What was standard size back in the day is not necessarily the standard size today.   A handyman contractor will go over the specs for your appliances and make sure they fit in the space you need.  And this is just part of the planning steps they will take as part of your remodeling project. Planning is Key:  Hire a Professional Handyman There is an old saying.  “Failing to plan is planning to fail.”  Let’s say you’re a free spirit.  Lovely.  Except when you are installing cabinets, that doesn’t work too well.  Using an informal design layout is a big disaster waiting to happen.  You could end up with haphazard placement of cabinets that will be jarring each and every time you set foot in the kitchen. There are even more reasons that you should consider hiring a handyman.  It’s all dependent on how you want to spend your...

You want to make smart decisions with your money; one of the smartest decisions you can make is to hire a handyman in Chandler. A Chandler Handyman Has Specialized Tools and Knowledge As we covered previously, you should consider hiring a handyman in Chandler for all of your household repairs and home improvement projects. Other than having the right know-how to perform various home repair jobs efficiently, a professional handyman service also has access to the right tools for any job that you may want done. Most homeowners keep basic tools like nails, hammers, and pliers for emergencies. However, for extensive work, specific tools (which they don’t have most of the time) are often required. For example, a proper painting job requires specific tools like brushes, rollers, sandpaper, a stepladder etc. Unfortunately, it’s simply not possible for homeowners to buy all the tools they need for every repair in their homes. It therefore makes sense to hire a professional handyman to do the job for you because they have the right tools and skills to get the job done right the first time. A Handyman is Surprisingly Cost Effective You have three options when it comes to your home renovation projects. You can attempt everything yourself, hire individual experts for each task or hire a handyman to do all the jobs for you. Many homeowners are tempted to go the DIY route because they believe they’ll save money in the process. But, due to lack of proper skills, experience and tools, they end up making mistakes that cost more in the long run. On the other hand, you can also hire specialists (i.e. carpenter, plumber, painter etc) to take care of your tasks individually, but it will cost you more since each person charges differently. However, if you choose to hire a handyman, you can get all your repair or renovation tasks done the same day, perhaps in a couple of hours. With their expert knowledge, these professionals are able to do the job fast and at an affordable rate. So, how does a handyman service help you save money? For starters, handymen charge per hour, which makes it relatively easy to know how much you’ll need to hire them....
