Spring is the perfect time to give your home a fresh start. While spring cleaning and decluttering may be the first idea to revitalize your home’s health, several outdoor repair projects were buried under the winter snow and frost. Save time and money by hiring a reliable handyman service to make those exterior repairs you’ve been putting off for warmer weather!
Gerald Thompson, owner of Handyman Pro of Northland KC, shared his best advice on how to take advantage of Handyman Pro’s services this spring.
1. What are the best repairs and renovations to have done in the spring?
We recommend an exterior door replacement, rotted siding or trim repairs, and a thorough gutter cleaning. An exterior door replacement can help keep cool air from draining out your front door, so we recommend getting that fixed before summer. Rotted siding and trim can spread and become very costly, so repairs should be made as soon as possible. And after a winter of melting snow and fallen foliage, now is a great time to clean out your gutters.
2. What are your best tips for how customers can make the most of their handyman service?
Create a list of small jobs to do at once. Since Handyman Pro services charge by the hour and not the task, a list saves the homeowner money and reduces the number of service visits needed throughout the year.

3. What Handyman Pro repair service do you think more customers should know about?
Caulking exterior cracks and surfaces annually. This saves the homeowner from having extensive repairs caused by wood rot. Caulking is a task that can easily be added to your list of small repairs that you provide your handyman, and it saves you money in the long run.
4. If you could give one piece of advice to new customers, what would it be?
Do not try to do the work yourself. An honest mistake could lead to hundreds of dollars in repairs or even worse, a loss of life or limb. Handyman Pro technicians are licensed, bonded, and insured. While a DIY solution can be tempting, if you don’t have the proper training and tools, the cost of potential damages to your person or your home are far greater than the cost of two hours of handyman labor.
