Handyman Matters’ multitalented craftsmen can strengthen a property's aesthetic value and fix maintenance issues with an arsenal of home-improvement projects. The prompt, experienced handypersons can add a touch of timber to porches and decks with exterior carpentry or frame the features of a room with planks of crown molding. Inside enclosed living areas, wall whisperers match up the texture of existing drywall before patching holes caused by too much indoor brick throwing. Painting and staining projects are made accurate with the added measures of checking siding, window casing, flashing, and caulking before painters saturate walls, exteriors, or decks with a new coat of color. Weatherproofing windows and siding banishes inclement weather from cozy interiors, just as adjusting dead bolts or installing perimeter fencing banishes lonely meteorologists from crashing family game night. Customers are welcome to supply their own materials for each Handyman Project, all of which are backed by a one-year labor warranty.
When HomeMasters opened in 1990, they were aiming for the very top?literally. The specialists in all things roofing and gutters earned a reputation for excellence thanks to their team of full-time employees with years of experience. In fact, their services were so trusted that their clients began asking them to expand into other fields of home maintenance. Today, HomeMasters offers fence repair, painting and staining, grout and tile sealing, bathroom and kitchen remodeling, and clearing out former residents.
