(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 24, 2010 ) Atlanta, GA Handyman services specialize in small home repairs and remodeling projects. Unlike a contractor who typically specializes in one field, a handyman makes a living by doing the small jobs. For example, one would hire a contractor for a new roof, windows or siding, but if all that is needed is a glass replacement or a small repair, then a handyman service is the appropriate person to call.
Mimi Massoud owns HandyPro Handyman Services in Cobb County. During a recent interview, Mimi said, People are upgrading their homes and staying in them because selling in today's economy is not profitable. On the other hand, people who recently purchased a house and got a great deal can afford upgrades to make their home more enjoyable.
Mimi suggested four home improvement tasks that homeowners should consider for 2010, including energy efficient home improvements. Certain energy efficient improvements like new windows, energy star appliances or exterior doors may qualify homeowners for federal income tax credits, said Massoud.
The second home improvement tip suggested was an energy audit, which is a report specific to your property and energy losses. Homeowners can save a great deal of money by caulking windows, adding insulation, upgrading doors and venting roofs, said Massoud.
Home improvement tip number three is to organize. Clutter adds stress, said Massoud. By organizing your home and making it clutter-free, you can help others and make a few dollars at the same time. Donate unwanted items to charity, have a yard sale, or place an unwanted item on craigslist.com.
The fourth home remodeling tip is painting. Painting is one of the least expensive home improvement projects that can make a huge difference, said Mimi. I do have one more tip for busy homeowners. Make a to-do list of the home repairs you need done and hire a handyman service that can complete everything on the list in one to three days.
