As we approach Father’s Day weekend there are a lot of tools and home repair kits flying off the shelves. Dads will be happy to see a a new power drill or torque wrench, but instead of gifts that say “do more work”, why not a gift that says “you deserve to rest”? Tell Dad to put away the toolbox on his way to the hammock and get him a professional team to tackle the home repair and home renovation needs.
We’ve seen a lot of packed garages, toppled over with boxes, tools, and… junk. We don’t want to suggest you throw Dad’s stuff out but we bet it won’t be hard to convince him to let go of the chaos with the installation of garage shelves. Shelves in the garage are a good way to create additional space and move the clutter off the floor. Not only will it give you more floor space, but the shelves will make it easier for Dad to get to some of his favourite things. This is especially true of tools. Utilizing shelves and specialized racks, you can bring to light the tools that Dad usually spends too much time rummaging for – you know, like the vice grips that you totally didn’t lose last month.
Window and Door Replacement
Window and door replacement is a perfect fix to pass on to the professionals. Especially in the long days of summer when the worst heat is seeping in. Take a look around the house to identify what windows and doors need work. Indications include rotted wood, warping, and windows or doors generally not closing very well. Not only for the aesthetic and money saving reasons, but having well functioning doors and windows is good for the security of your home.
Not only is it a tough job but it also requires working at heights. Maybe Dad would rather spend his afternoon on the ground or inside reading, or watching his team. Check your roof to see if it needs minor maintenance or extensive repairs. We’ve seen plenty of roofs damaged by microbursts and other harsh weather that could have otherwise been avoided with a little preventative care.
Plaster and Drywall Work
Sure Dad likes to get his hands dirty but let him get his fingers covered in cheese dip this weekend and not plaster. Plaster work can help with eye-sores like cracks and sagging ceilings. Keep Dad away from this heavy work and let a professional team fix your plaster or drywall.
Interior or Exterior Painting
Save Dad from the heat of summer and let a team of professionals work efficiently to complete a paint project inside or outside the house. The timing could be perfect for a new coat or maybe you just need some new colours to liven up your home.
Decks and Painting
Dad probably likes spending time on the deck or another place where he quietly likes to wonder about why he doesn’t have a deck. Either way, this is the ultimate project to get started now with a professional team to help take the pressure off old Dad. Get the initial planning going so that Dad can lie back and dream about the wonderful things to come. A professional team can help with the construction of anything from an outdoor kitchen deck to a fired-up grill.
