At My Home Handyman, we realize how busy life can get in Calgary and that maintaining your home at the end of a busy week is the last thing you want to think about doing. We’re here to lighten the load of your busy schedule and are your one-stop-shop for all your home improvement and repair needs.

We have listed the top five ways that our handyman can help improve your home.

1. Plumbing Repairs

Don’t let that leaky sink or toilet run for too long a time.  The utility bills will start to add up. One toilet that won’t stop running can add a few hundred dollars in extras to your monthly water bill. Our certified staff can either replace the parts that are broken or replace the fixtures altogether. Besides fixing problems, we also solve them.  If your toilet is clogged or you have a sink banking up, our plumbing technicians will troubleshoot and fix all issues.  Nothing can be more satisfying than knowing everything is flowing correctly in your house.

2. Drywall Repair and installation

You’d be surprised with all the stories we get when people call in for drywall repairs.  Our favourite one is the party from the night before, and now they need the drywall fixed before the landlord sees the damage.  Whether it’s a party, moving furniture or playing sports in the basement, drywall damage sticks out like a soar thumb. It just has a way to make a room look like a disaster.  Luckily at My Home Handyman, our technicians are exceptionally well trained in making these holes disappear. Once we’re done the job, it will look like a brand new wall, and your landlord will be none the wiser.  

If you also want to finish a space off with drywall in a basement or a garage, we have trained technicians to help with any size job.

3. Painting 

Everyone thinks painting is easy, and then they try doing it. If the area isn’t properly prepped,  paint can get everywhere.  You will spend more time scrubbing your floors than you will be painting your walls. You work hard enough, so give us a call at My Home Handyman, and we will get one of our experienced painters to provide you with a hand. They will turn that two-day DIY job into a 4-hour breeze, saving you time and money.  

We can help with all painting jobs around the house, big or small.  Whether it’s just one room or the entire house, we have you covered. If your exterior needs some sprucing up, we also paint and stain fences or decks.  

4. Carpentry 

Carpentry is a real craft that is perfected through many years of practice. Not to mention you need a lot of tools to do the job correctly.  A beautiful custom built-in next to the fireplace can make a room feel rich. We make sure to take all the time needed to ensure a quality job.  You work hard for your money, so we want to make sure you over the moon with every dollar spent.

If you are tired of being cooped up all winter and want to spend more time outside this summer, consider having a custom deck built off your house. One of our Journeyman carpenters will help you create that outdoor oasis you’ve always wanted. We can also help with that new fence for that extra backyard privacy.  

Yes, we love to build beautiful things. However, we also specialize in all carpentry repairs. So if you have some broken-off crown moulding, a fence panel that needs some love, or a piece of hardwood flooring that needs some TLC, give us a call today, and we will make your house look new again.

5. Renovations

Nothing can be more gratifying than seeing your home transform with a renovation. One of our favourite rooms to renovate is the kitchen. They say the kitchen is where the heart of your home is. It is where people come to feed their soul with good company, good food and hopefully some good wine.  We love to be part of this transformation and create a space in your house that will be the envy of all your friends. During the whole process, we will keep the job on schedule and budget.  Our mission is to make the entire process stress-free.

Another room we love to renovate is the master bathroom. Nothing is more relaxing than a spa-like bathroom.  Just imagine those cold nights where you can warm up in your oversized bear-claw bathtub.  It always brings joy to us when we hear how much our clients love their new space.

These are just some of the ways My Home Handyman can help you improve your home.  We also offer many other services and would be more than happy to provide you with a free quote for your upcoming projects.
