Moving Into A New Home? 5 Things To Get Done With Handyman Services

Posted on

Buying a home is just one expense out of several individual cost that comes with moving. You need to pay for moving expenses, buy new furniture, and make small changes to get the home ready for living. If you do not have much time or money on your hands, you should use handyman services to help.

Pet Door Installation

Most properties do not come with a pet door already installed, so you may want to give your pet an easy way to get outside. Although you could undertake this project on your own, a handyman will not cost you a lot of money and can make sure that no mistakes are made that could ruin an exterior door.

Furniture Assembly

If you want to get low-cost furniture, you should look at pieces that are not already assembled. However, it can take a long time to put together enough furniture to furnish an entire home. A handyman has the right tools and know-how, and they usually work at an hourly rate for small jobs. Without proper assembly, no piece of furniture will last that long, so it is nice to have an experienced professional on the job.

Mounting Items

When you want to hang pictures, shelving, or televisions on the wall, a handyman can do it all. Getting this service early on will help you move into a home that feels like your own. You also do not have to worry about buying or using a ladder just to take care of mounting items that are out of arm's reach.

Rekey the Locks

The safest thing to do when you move into a new home is to rekey the locks. Although you could change the locks, this would be an unnecessary expense as rekeying them accomplishes the same goal.

Install New Shower Heads

If you are bringing shower heads from your previous home, or you want to get new ones, you should let a handyman install them. Low-flow shower heads are great for minimizing water costs, and you can get ones with handheld attachments to enjoy more versatile cleaning in the shower.

When it comes to small projects, you have to decide whether you want to save time or money. Aside from doing it yourself, a handyman, such as H S A  plumbing, provides the best balance of the two, costing less than a specialized professional such as an electrician or plumber, while also saving you lots of time after just moving in.
