Lake Orion Handyman Brings New Life to Home Improvement Projects

The local full-service handyman does it all, from general home repairs to home remodeling and additions

 

 













Lake Orion MI – Providing professional service is top priority for the local home improvement contractor with HandyPro Handyman Service. Owner Antony Bradley has set the bar high on quality service and customer satisfaction.

The local, full-service handyman says consumers deserve to have work done on their homes by honest, experienced, and reputable home improvement contractors. That’s why it is important to gain the trust and respect from every customer. After all, HandyPro home repair contractors are invited guests into people’s homes and they take that responsibility very seriously.

HandyPro Handyman Service technicians are carefully screened and go through an intense training session, including hands-on and classroom training.

The success of HandyPro Handyman Service (http://www.handypro.com/michigan_oakland.html) is reflected by recent sales figures. Home improvement service is in high demand, even when the economy is suffering. In fact, Bradley believes that a poor economy can encourage more business. Since people are not able to sell their home for a profit, they are remodeling instead, and waiting for real estate values to go back up.

But if customers plan to sell their homes, HandyPro Handyman Service is also the place to turn to. There are many inexpensive repairs that can make a home more competitive in today’s market. Painting is one home improvement task that provides the best return on an investment. New fixtures, ceiling fans, updated lighting, and even making sure all doors open and close properly can be very important, too.

Antony Bradley has established positive relationships in his neighborhood with the same customers calling 2-3 times each year with requests for something as simple as patching drywall and installing closet organizers. HandyPro stands behind all their work with a one-year guarantee. With the fall season approaching, Bradley will be busy remodeling bathrooms and basements, painting and other home improvement projects to get the home ready for the holidays.

15 Low-cost, High-return Tips to Sell Your Home Faster and for More Money!


Lake Orion Handyman offers great home repair tips for today’s home seller:

My wife and I are selling our home in this tough economy, how can we make our house sell fast and at a fair price? Steve A.

Fortunately, there are many low cost projects you can do yourself and have your home stand out from others, even during the slower market. Because we are in a buyer’s market, the days of calling your agent and selling your home a few days later is not the norm. We now have to differentiate our homes from the over-saturated inventory. The good news is, it does not have to cost a lot of money to do so. Below are some unique tips to help sell your house faster and for more money.

1. One of the largest impacts that you can have when selling your home is interior and exterior painting. One of the best quotes that I have heard on this topic is from John Tenza , a professional real estate coach in Ann Arbor , “Paint is worth $20 in the can and $1,000 on the wall.” He continues to explain that homes being sold must have a clean and fresh appearance to entice the buyers when they are considering your property. Paint is one of the most inexpensive ways to accomplish this. Remember to use neutral colors.

2. Curb appeal is vital when selling a home. Ensure the landscaping is clean, pruned and trimmed to ensure the first impression is a positive one. Do you search for homes on the Internet? So do most potential buyers. The more Internet photos that “wow’ people, the more you’ll be “wowed” by the offers.

3. Pay special attention to the front door. It’s similar to the tie on a suit, meaning that it is the focal point. Ensure it’s got a fresh coat of paint. The front door is perceived to reflect the home’s general condition.

4. Remove dingy wallpaper and either replace it or re-paint the room. This will make a room look fresh, new and inviting.

5. Repair drippy faucets and showerheads and leaky toilets.

6. Pay attention to loose knobs and handles and crooked cabinet doors. Left unrepaired, these items can give the wrong impression of the home’s overall condition. For older homes, add inexpensive updates by putting new knobs on cabinets or doors.

7. Remove the clutter. Prospective buyers envision themselves living in the property, and a clean organized house will help put a good picture in their mind.

8. Replace old sinks or make repairs to make the sinks look shiny and new.

9. Make the home smell good. This can be overdone by using overpowering air fresheners, so be careful. But a batch of cookies or a cake that just came out of the oven can make a great first impression. The smell of last night's fish dinner doesn't.

10. Update light fixtures and repair any that are in disrepair.

11. Make sure that doors open and close properly.

12. Repair or re-grout ceramic tile.

13. Be creative. Throwing in a LCD TV and surround sound could make the difference if they are on the fence between two homes.

14. Locate a great agent. These agents will have a strong marketing plan and know how to execute it. They will also have a high list price-to-sales ratio and a high closing ratio. Don’t hesitate to ask for an agent's sales results. There is a lot of money at stake, and you deserve the best.

15. Clean like there is no tomorrow. If your potential buyers can’t say that your home is the cleanest on the market, grab a rag and get to work. Again, the buyers are imagining themselves living in your home and if it’s not a pretty picture, neither will the offers on your home

Job well done!

Spending a little extra time and some careful planning can give you the extra edge to stand out, which will help sell your home faster AND for thousands more. By trying some of these tips, buyers will perceive your home as a value, and you’ll see the “SOLD” sign on your lawn quickly, even in today’s market.

Handyman Services Lake Orion: Damn those Ice Dams!


Handyman services in Lake Orion are prepared to help homeowners prepare for winter. The harsh winter elements can cause major damage to homes in Michigan. Here is an article addressing ice damming caused by heavy snow accumulation on the roof.

This article was written by Keith Paul, founder of HandyPro Handyman Services:

“With the large amount a snow on my roof from the storm, I am concerned there will be damage to my gutters and roof. What can I do to protect it?”
Debra L. Pittsfield Twp, MI

Mother Nature can be relentless on your roof during the heavy snowfalls. Snow can be tremendously heavy due to the large surface area of your roof. Sometimes snow can weigh up to 30 LB per square foot. On a 1500-square-foot house with a roof surface area of 1600 square feet, that’s 48,000 Lbs or 24 elephants on your roof! Because the weight can increase as the snow melts and refreezes to ice, called “Ice Dam”, it is very important to remove the snow and ice as soon as possible.

Ice dams occur when the heat in your attic melts the snow on your roof. The snow melts and accumulates at the roof ends or inside gutters, then refreezes. This process can reoccur causing the ice to build up towards the peak of your roof and underneath your shingles. Once the ice works its way up under your shingles, they can melt causing a waterfall in the interior of in your home.
This can be prevented by following the steps below:

1. Ensure your gutters are cleaned after the leaves fall and before winter.

2. Ensure your home has adequate ventilation and insulation.

3. Remove the snow from the ends of your roof by using a roof rake. Remove the snow a minimum of 4 feet from the gutters to the peak of the roof anytime it snows over 4-6 inches.

a. Roof rakes can be purchased at local hardware stores for approximately $20-$40.
b. Local home improvement companies provide this service. Prices can vary from $95-$400 depending on the home. Ensure the company’s references, because picking the wrong company could damage your roof. (Read Tips for Hiring a Handyman)

4. Appling Calcium Chloride over the ice will cause the ice dam to melt. This is safe for your shrubbery and grass. Sodium Chloride, (table salt) will cause damage. Safety is of the utmost important with this step because the ice could melt onto your ladder and refreeze on the rungs causing a slip hazard.
