Show Your Handy People You Love Them

5 Ways to Show Your Handy People You Love Them

Listen up, lovebirds, because this one’s for you! It is 2019 so most likely we, as couples, take turns dealing with home tasks including exterior home maintenance. However, general gender norms claim that men work on the hard tasks of home repairs and other rough duties. Whatever your situation is at home, the time is approaching to show some love and appreciation for your loved ones on Valentine’s Day. So if your man (or woman) is the repairer around the house, we’ve compiled a list of Valentine’s Day gifts to get them.

Gifts for your Handy People

Emergency home maintenance can be stressful and scary, and working outside in the winter is difficult for anyone, so when Valentine’s Day comes around consider these gifts for the repair guy or girl in your life.

  • The simplest way to show your appreciation is to order in or head out for lunch or dinner.
  • Bake up a storm in the kitchen and hand out cookies and other simple sweets.
  • While your sweetheart is working outdoors and building up a sweat, you can simply head out with a glass of water to help keep them hydrated.
  • A simple and genuine thank you goes a long way. Make sure to thank the person who is working hard outdoors.
  • Tools and other gadgets are a great gift for the repairman in your home. See what needs to be replaced in the tool shed and pick it up at your local tool shop.

No one wants to be outside doing home maintenance, but there are some people who do, and we should show our love and appreciation for them as they help us with tedious tasks of home repairs and other duties. If you find yourself with a home maintenance emergency on your hands in the dead of winter or any time of the year, please call your friends at Liberty Builders or visit our website for information on our services. We’ll be glad to help.

Keep Your Gutters Flowing

Keep Your Gutters Flowing Year-Round

February can be a volatile month when it comes to weather; the temperature fluctuates between cold and pleasant and it’s often raining. It’s not the ideal month for doing any sort of outdoor home maintenance, but it actually is a great time to go out and check your gutters for any damage before the spring rains set in.

 

Gutter Maintenance is Important

Gutter maintenance and repair can and should be done all year long since each season of the year has their own unique ways of clogging them up. In winter, icicles and ice dams are the biggest dangers that homeowners have to face on their gutters. As picturesque as they may look, ice dams especially have the potential to crack, bend, or burst the gutters they are attached to if they are not dealt with before they grow too large.

Tree debris, such as leaves or pine needles, could fall into the gutters during storms, contributing to the creation of ice dams or icicles, or cause water from storms to back up onto the roof, rot wood siding, or create puddles dangerously close to the foundation rather than flow away from the house as the gutters are intended to ensure. As unpleasant as the idea of climbing around the roof on a February day is, water damage prevention to your home truly is worth it.
