There are lots of jobs around your home that seem tailor-made for a do it yourselfer. But what if assembling furniture, installing shelving, and mounting Big Screen TVs isn’t in your wheelhouse? Or you simply don’t have the hands and the tools available to complete these types of projects?
Rather than passing on your purchase and dealing with disappointment, consider the benefits of hiring a professional handyman service to tackle these types of jobs. Patch2Paint handyman technicians can provide the muscle and the assembly and mounting experience you need to get all kinds of projects done right the first time.
Don’t let the installation details discourage you.
If you’ve ever identified a potential purchase but had to ask yourself, “How am I going to put that together?” the simple answer is: Let someone else with experience do it. When it comes to hanging things on the wall, such as a big screen TV, you often only get one chance to get it right. Knowing how to locate studs and to properly mount a bracket, and then hang a TV, not only requires tools you might not have, but also extra pairs of hands to lift and place the TV.
For example, mounting a large flat screen TV above a fireplace is a popular placement option for many homeowners, but lifting a TV that can weigh up to 75 or 100 pounds is way too difficult. Mounting shelving to your walls also requires extra care especially if the shelves will need to carry weight; such as dinnerware, art work or books. Patch2Paint can help you assemble free-standing shelves as well as mounted shelves so you can maximize space and storage.
When Furniture Assembly is not as DIY as it seems
Interesting designs and reasonable prices are some of the reasons renters and homeowners shop for unassembled furniture. For some the cost savings are worth it when compared to the time spent assembling chairs and tables. But for others who can’t seem to find the time due to work or family demands, having to put together six or eight dinner chairs, or assemble a bookshelf, is a job better left to someone else. Considering a simple unassembled chair might have upwards of 30 parts, assembling more than one can become an hours-long project. If you have the time and patience to tackle such a project, that’s great. If you’d rather spend your time planning and visualizing your room with the new furniture, Patch2Paint will make it happen quicker.
“Mirror, Mirror on the wall, how I pray you do not fall.”
Hanging heavy mirrors is another tricky job that requires more than a single pair of hands. Measuring the mirror against the wall space and in relation to the furniture around it and below it requires simple math and a good eye for finding the perfect spot for mounting. Fortunately for renters and owners, there are lots of hooks available that make easy work of hanging a mirror if you’re able to properly measure it and can lift it. In the absence of either, Patch2Paint handyman services can step in and mount your large mirrors for you.
Another heavy lift: Preparing AC window units for winter.
If your home doesn’t have central air conditioning and you rely on window units to keep your family cool, it’s important to either remove the units or insulate them before winter arrives. In cold weather, poorly insulated window units can let heat escape which can drive up your energy bills. Removing them for the season is a better idea, but many units are heavy and difficult to handle unless managed by more than one person.
Patch2Paint will carefully remove your window units and carry them to a storage place in your home until you’re ready to use them the following year. We’ll then reinstall them so that they are pitched correctly for proper drainage. If you’re concerned about energy loss in your home, Patch2Paint can caulk around windows and doors and add weather stripping wherever drafts are entering. Simple steps such as proper insulation from drafts can make a big difference in the comfort of your home, winter and summer.
