Carefree Home Repairs And Upgrades

Mr. Handyman Takes The Stress Out Of Home Improvement Projects

“Home is where the heart is.”

This time-honored adage says it all.

From raising families, to hosting friends, to providing quiet places of solitude, our homes are the nexuses of our lives.

In any given year, we spend a lot of time in our homes, pursuing our normal waking and sleeping activities. However, in this era of Covid-19, we are staying put even more as our homes have been pressed into service as offices, classrooms and entertainment centers.

All of this heightened activity has resulted in increased wear and tear in our homes, creating an enhanced need for repairs and maintenance. Furthermore, the increased stay-at-home time has caused many homeowners to reassess what they want their homes to be, with many residents contemplating major upgrade and remodeling projects.

Some people have the knowledge, tools and desire to perform their own home projects.

Then, there are the rest of us.

You know, those of us who have good intentions, but lack the time, skills or initiative to attempt our own repairs and home improvements.

Fortunately for us, there are professional craftspersons who are happy to take on our home improvement projects.

In our community, one of the most popular home services companies is Mr. Handyman of East Nashville and Hendersonville, owned and operated by John and Sarah Gentry. This local business is a franchisee of the Mr. Handyman Corporation, which has locations in over 200 cities in the U.S. and Canada.

John is a lifelong craftsman who got his start early by helping out in his father’s construction business.

“I grew up building log homes with my dad. He owned a log home business, so I got to work with and learn from some of the best contractors in the country,” says John. “I have spent my entire life in this field, progressing from construction assistant to licensed general contractor.”

In his business, John and his team offer a wide range of services to both home and small business owners.

“We do all kinds of repairs and improvements for our customers, including tile work, plumbing, drywall, concrete and hardwood flooring” says John. “We are equipped to do repairs as simple as changing light bulbs all the way up to full-build construction projects.”

At Mr. Handyman, pricing for repairs and home improvements varies by the size and nature of the job.

“Most small repairs are priced on an hourly basis,” says John. “Larger, more complex jobs are priced by the project, based upon our onsite estimates.”

Although Mr. Handyman handles all kinds of projects, certain ones seem to be more popular than others.

“In terms of home maintenance, our top requests include repairs to doors, facets, lighting, drywall and plumbing/water leaks,” says John. “Our most popular home improvements and upgrades are the addition of new decks, countertops, showers, windows and flooring.”

Although many homeowners may be qualified to complete their own repairs and upgrades, John cautions that there are still valid reasons for contracting out home repairs.

“Home should be a place of comfort, a place where you spend time together. You don’t want to work at a job all day and then come home to do more work in the evenings and on weekends,
says John. “Furthermore, professional contractors will stand behind their work. If something goes wrong, they will make it right.”

Ultimately, if homeowners decide to outsource their home improvement projects, there are several things that they should consider before choosing a handyman or craftsperson.

“When vetting a home contractor, be sure to verify that that the prospective handyman is bonded, insured and licensed to perform the needed services,” says John. “Also, be sure to check their references, including social media ratings.”

The next time you are in need of home repairs or are contemplating a remodeling project, be sure to consider Mr. Handyman of East Nashville and Hendersonville.

“We perform all home services on time and to our customer’s satisfaction,” says John. “We will be there for you when you need us.”
