Which of these top home “spots” are yours?  Do they need a “fast fix”?  

Finished Staircase ProjectThroughout the year, people contact us, and they’re “seeing spots”!  The “spots” are real!  They are areas of their home they’d like Handyworks to fix up in time for their next event, birthday party, retirement party, baby shower, whenever friends might be stopping by.

But it’s true: Every year, at HRD, Handyworks Remodeling and Design of Wallingford CT, we hear from people “seeing spots”.  Frankly, we’re not eye doctors, but we CAN see from years of experience that it doesn’t take a crystal ball to see the “spots” people ask us about most:


The “TOP TEN SPOTS” which SHOULD (but rarely) get the Most Attention:

Spot #1.  STAIRS:  Staircase railings, tighten, replace or repair.  Learn more

Spot #2.  ENTRANCES:  Front steps/side steps, rebuild, repair.  Learn more

Spot #3.  DOORS:  Squeaky doors, stuck doors, doors with loose handles.  Learn more

Spot #4.  WINDOWS:  Loose frames, cracked glass, leaking air.  Learn more

Ok, your turn:  Pick one (or a few) “spots” from this list, or add some of your own “spots”.
