Need some home repairs done, but don’t have the time or the inclination to hire a handyman? Why not consider performing the repairs yourself? Handyman Connection® of Eden Prairie shares three problems you can fix with tools found in your local hardware store:
Cracked Floor Tile
Cracked tiles around the home are not only unsightly; they are also unsafe. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for a handyman to be able to fix this issue. With the right tools and materials, you can easily repair a cracked tile over the weekend. Break up the old tile first by drilling holes in its surface and then smashing it into smaller pieces. Make sure you get rid of all the old tile to ensure flawless and even results.
Leaks at home cause you to waste precious resources, which is why it’s important to address them immediately. Leaking faucets, in particular, can significantly increase your home’s water expenses. Most faucet leaks only require a simple tightening job on the handles to repair. If that doesn’t work, then you’ll likely need to replace the cartridges. These are available at local hardware stores, so you won’t have any problems getting them.
Hole in the Wall
Whether it’s a place where a nail was removed or an unfortunate accident, holes in your wall can allow damaging elements into your home and energy out. Avoid the problems these can bring, and restore your home’s beauty by getting some drywall patch from the hardware store. After fixing the hole, you can also consider repainting your entire wall for a fresh, updated appearance, or simply touch up the patched areas.
These repairs are easy enough to be done by any homeowner. If you don’t have the spare time, however, you can also turn to Handyman Connection of Eden Prairie for emergency repairs. We offer a wide range of home improvement and maintenance services that can refresh your home’s overall appearance and condition. Contact us today at (952) 777-4875 to request a free estimate.
