St. Louis HandymanYou know the drill – Your gutters are hanging off the roof. The faucet in the bathroom sink has an annoying drip. Squirrels have chewed through your cedar siding and are nesting in your walls. That light switch in the laundry room doesn’t work.

Owning a home means having a seemingly endless “to-do” list of small projects.

Almost universally your “to-do” list is composed of minor, irritating projects that you can tolerate and live with – but should you? Obviously, the big-ticket items such as a frozen pipe that bursts or a broken window get immediate attention. It’s those small jobs that persist on a growing list and can eventually wear on your time and lifestyle.

And now, with so many people working from home due to COVID-19, those minor projects are definitely becoming more noticeable – and more irritating – than ever before.

Instead of putting them off or trying to chip away at the tasks yourself, the best way to handle your  home’s maintenance “to-do” list may be to bring in the services of a professional handyman. And Agape Construction offers a full range of handyman services for the St. Louis area.

There are plenty of reasons why it’s smart to bring in a professional from Agape to tackle all or at least part of your “to-do” list.

Our Handymen Have Been There, Done That & Seen It All

For example you may need a new faucet installed in your bathroom. Maybe you’ve put in one before, but were you really satisfied with the final product? Or maybe you’ve never installed one, and you’re not sure where to begin.

The Agape Handyman who would visit for such an installation has experience; he has installed dozens, if not hundreds of faucets in his career. He knows the tools, parts, and codes needed.

In fact, he’s likely completed dozens of complete bathroom-related remodeling projects. He’ll get your small job done quickly, efficiently and correct the first time. Experience matters.

Your Agape Handyman Can Identify (And Fix) Small Problems Before They Become Major Issues

Sure, Cleaning those gutters isn’t the most technical job around your house, but you may not realize that there’s more to the task than getting soggy, rotting leaves out of your gutters.

Our handy man will inspect your gutter’s mountings and if necessary, install new fasteners to ensure your gutters are correctly in place and securely attached to your roof.

He’ll also check to see if the wood beneath your shingles or your soffits are rotting, a common problem often associated with clogged, overflowing gutters.

With most “small” jobs around the home, there are more than a few related potential problems under the surface that, if caught early enough, can be repaired quickly and inexpensively.

Houses don’t “heal” on their own; today’s small problem is tomorrow’s major issue. Our handymen can help you address those problems today.

Your Time, Your Life – Leave Home Maintenance To The Professionals

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the idea of work for many of us. The number of Americans working remotely – from home – has grown to staggering proportions since the beginning of the pandemic nearly a year ago.

According to Upwork, nearly 42% of the American workforce is working remotely now, an 87% increase since the February 2020. And we’re working more hours – remotely – than before as the line between the workplace and home has blurred.

So for many, you’re likely busier than ever, which means you have less time to tackle those Do-It-Yourself projects around the house.

Picking up the phone and calling in an Agape handyman will free you to focus your attention on your family, friends and of course, your work.

Even Minor Jobs Have Serious Safety Hazards

Installing a ceiling fan, light switch or faucet may seem to be a simple project. But these are just a few examples of work that must be done in compliance with local building codes.

Many homeowners have installed a ceiling fan or light switch, for example, not knowing if their home had aluminum wiring. An improper installation involving aluminum wiring – which expands when it’s heated and contracts when it cools – can over time loosen wires which can lead to a spark or arcing, which in turn can cause a fire.

All work around your house performed by your Agape handyman will be done in compliance with building and construction codes with the latest industry standards in mind. And it will be backed up by our standard Warranty Policy – guaranteeing the work is done correctly.

Even simple jobs can be dangerous. Falling off a ladder can lead to sprains, broken bones or worse. Each year, emergency rooms across the country treat homeowners who have fallen off roofs, been injured by power tools, electrical shocks or dozens of other DIY hazards.

Stay safe; bring in a professional.
