The Duffy'sBlog

There are numerous projects that come up around the house are appropriate for a handyman to tackle. Sometimes home renovation or maintenance tasks require the skill of an experienced professional. Other times you may just not have the time to handle everything that needs to be done around the house. Either way these are just a few of the key home maintenance projects that call for a Greenwich area handyman. 

1. Gutter Cleaning and Flashing and Roofing Repair

Clogged gutters and damaged flashing and roofing material can lead to water issues inside the house. When gutters get clogged, water can backup and work itself under roofing material, eventually moving it’s way into the house. Gunk in gutters can also attract rodents and pests and be a harbinger for mold. This is a good job for a handyman. The project is not only time consuming, it also requires getting up on high ladders, which can be dangerous and requires specific equipment. 

Damaged wood, shingle, metal or slate roofing and flashing can also lead to water infiltration. Oftentimes this type of issue goes unnoticed for long periods of time. Water can get inside soffits and attic space, and soak insulation and framing while causing mildew and rot that can’t bee seen. A good handyman can provide an inspection of these spaces periodically and fix issues as needed. 

2. Power Washing

Power washing is one of those tasks that requires a fair amount of time as well as specific equipment.
