Summer is one of the most popular seasons where people fix up their backyards, front yards, and their “inside” yards. Many people take pride in the appearance of their homes and often engage in an unspoken but friendly competition with their neighbors, challenging each other to creating a top-notch house and a well-groomed property.

Begin the property wars! But as drawing as the competition is, there are also long work days, the smaller chores around the house, grocery shopping, and spending time with family that get in the way of the repairs and upgrades that your home really does need. Think you don’t relate to the above issue? Think again, below is a list of handyman repairs that your house and yard probably needs.

  1. Upgrade to laminate flooring.
  2. New toilet installation.
  3. Replace siding and plywood on exterior walls.
  4. Plumbing repairs.
  5. Making the patio stairs safe again.
  6. Brick interlocking repairs.
  7. Painting fresh coats on interior walls.
  8. Yard waste removal.
  9. Light Installation.
  10. Parge coats on the house foundation.
  11. Wall paper replacement

These repairs and upgrades  are only ten out of the hundreds that your home may need. Your mind is probably spinning in stress when thinking about the amount of work that needs to be done and the amount of money that needs to be paid.

But you don’t have to turn to those big-named companies that over-charge for their services, try diving into the local sharing economy to find the right handyman for you.
