In Northern Virginia and D.C., we have the advantage of a vast amount of history. Not only that, but the opportunities to tap into that history are all around us. Those out west have a different relationship with the history of their region, as the European documentation of the area began much later. This contrast of experiences, between Eastern and Western history, are much more evident when you look deeper than the actual events. The only snapshot into daily life of 200 years ago we can tangibly experience today is architecture and what is more important to a Handyman than architecture?
Old Homes and Old Plumbing
The homes in our area can be, literally, hundreds of years old and a home like that brings its own history to the table. Every family that has lived there has put its own certain spin on the home and chances are, there have been some less than intelligent choices made in repair techniques. Old homes are like a dog that you adopt with a medical condition. The maintenance is going to be a factor in keeping it going. A beautiful old home crumbling into ruin is one of the saddest sights one can imagine. All that history and some are content to let it slip away. At Expert Handyman Services we are defenders of history. Thats right, we keep your home, old or new, from crumbling into a pile of dust and shingles. We fix the little problems that appear as your home ages. Similar to the way grandpa has to have his plumbing checked every year, a comprehensive inspection of all the functioning parts of your home is greatly encouraged.
Okay, so maybe it is not that dramatic but what we can do, is keep your home in good repair. Our skills are not limited to simple tasks, like installing doorknobs or light switches, although we will gladly install light switches and doorknobs for you. We also happen to be a full service remodeling company, with years of experience renovating kitchens and bathrooms. If you ask anyone which room they would like to renovate in their home, chances are they will say either the kitchen or bathroom. What about hardwood floors? Yes, we do that too, what would a complete kitchen or bathroom remodel look like without a new floor? Not very professional. We can install a hardwood, stone, or even retro themed linoleum floor, pretty much any dream you have for your kitchen or bathroom, we can make it come true.
Now your vintage home has probably been through many renovations in its time, assuming that you own a vintage home. When that is the case, the remnants of an old remodel could be hanging around. The hangover of someone else’s bad decision. If that is the case, let Expert Handyman fix the less than desirable parts of your home. There are always parts of a home that, when we decide to buy it, are not quite what we want. With the right talent and enough time, those undesirable aspects can be erased from existence. Not only are we defenders of history, we make undesirable home features disappear, so I guess that makes us magicians too.
All kidding aside, the professionals at Expert Handyman are privileged to serve the people of Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. Our philosophy is one of quality and integrity, the key qualities of a business if you ask us. Every handyman company that is out there should provide good, solid services, but we think that following our key values comes through in every aspect of our work. From the exceptional craftsmanship of the carpentry we produce, to the worry free aspect of having a professional repair a plumbing leak. We think of it as providing much more than simply repair services; we give you peace of mind. When it comes to your home, piece of mind is priceless.
When we perform any service or maintenance on your home we want you to look at it with as much pride as we do when we are finished. Your home is important to you, that means it is important to us and we thank you for letting us contribute to the history of your home.
