7) INTERIOR PAINTING


While painting is a task that is often attempted by do-it-yourselfers, it is messy, time consuming and takes experience if you want an acceptable finished product. Since paint is something that is on display for everyone to see, all the drools, drips and sags of a novice paint job really stand out. That’s not to mention all the paint that gets where it isn’t supposed to be - on the ceiling, light switches, baseboards and floor. The sad reality is a poorly done paint job can ruin the look of your home and decrease its value.

Whether it’s painting fresh drywall repairs, smoothing out a previous do-it-yourself paint job or a fresh coat of paint to change an outdated wall color, we can help. In addition to doing outstanding work we also take cleanliness seriously - you won’t find any paint spilled on your floors or in your sink! Save yourself the mess, time and frustration and have us do your painting.

 
8) DOOR REPAIRS


The doors of your home are something that see a lot of use, you and your family look at and touch them every day. A poorly working or damaged door is not just annoying to use, it can be unsecure, let in drafts and lower the value of your home.

We can adjust a door that doesn’t close properly, repair a broken door or door frame, replace weather stripping, change door locks, repair closet doors and install storm doors. We can even install new doors, door frames and door casings if required. Save yourself the trouble of dealing with a problem door and let us take care of it!

 
9) PLUMBING FIXTURE REPLACEMENTS


Aside from being plain annoying, leaking toilets, taps, clothes washers and dishwashers waste water and money. Leaks can also lead to extensive damage if not repaired right away. And if these repairs aren’t done correctly by someone who knows what they are doing the results can be catastrophic.

We can replace a sink faucet or repair a toilet that won’t stop running. We can install or delete a dishwasher or garbage disposal. We can also install new shower and faucet cartridges. At FT Property Services, we have years of experience installing plumbing fixtures and can help you with yours too! Save yourself the worry of wondering if your plumbing fixtures are going to leak and contact us today.


10) FENCE AND GATE REPAIR


Fences and gates take the full force of our extreme weather in Calgary. Blistering sun, bone chilling winters and gale force winds all take their toll. Add to this physical damage and rot and these structures can often need a little TLC. Having a broken fence or gate is super annoying. It affects the usefulness of your yard, your privacy and your security. On top of this, a broken fence or gate looks terrible and can effect the value of your property.

Working on fences and gates is something we frequently do through our handyman service. Typically this involves replacing broken boards, rotten fence posts and repairing or replacing broken gates. If the fence is beyond saving we can also tear it out and build a brand new one that will last for years to come. If your fence or gate could use some TLC we are here to help. We will save you the back breaking labour involved and leave you with a finished product you’ll love!



So if you need a professional handyman you can count on that does outstanding work and can help you with many of the problems a home owner might face, contact us today. We have been serving Calgary since 2015 and would love to add you to the list of happy clients we serve!

4) WALL MOUNTINGS


Another type of handyman job we frequently do for home owners are wall mountings. While most people feel comfortable putting a nail in the wall to hang a picture, some wall mount jobs can be a bit more daunting. Failure to properly wall mount heavy or valuable items can lead to personal injury and property damage. In addition to this, there are also hidden wires and pipes in most walls. Accidentally hitting either of these with a screw can lead to a shocking experience or a wet basement.

Things like TV wall mounts, heavy pictures or mirrors, cabinetry, floating shelving and garage racking are best left to a professional. Save yourself the trouble and potential for damage or injury and have us take care of your wall mounts. We have years of experience so you can have piece of mind knowing the job was done right.


5) CABINET REPAIRS 


Kitchen and bathroom cabinets can see a lot of use and are prone to being damaged over the years. Missing doors, broken drawers, cosmetic damage and missing hardware can have a negative effect on the overall look and usability of your kitchen or bathroom.

Before you decide to replace your cabinets give us a call. In many cases we can repair existing cabinets and save you money. We can also install new cabinets and vanities if required so you can go back to enjoying your kitchen or bathroom!


6) ELECTRICAL FIXTURE REPLACEMENT


Another common handyman job we do for home owners is the repair and replacement of electrical fixtures. Typically this involves replacing faulty outlets, switches, light fixtures, thermostats and florescent light ballasts. We can also update old electrical fixtures to modernize and add value to your home without breaking the bank.


Electrical fixtures should always be worked on by someone who knows what they are doing. Mistakes can easily lead to property damage and personal injury. Save yourself from getting zapped and have us replace your electrical fixtures!

One of the most common questions I get asked when people find out about our handyman service is “What sort of stuff do you do?” Since most handymen offer a wide variety of services, I thought I would make a list of the top 10 handyman jobs we do for home owners.


1) DRYWALL REPAIRS


Some of the most common jobs we do for home owners are drywall repairs. Holes, cracks, dents and poorly done previous repairs are unsightly and will ruin the look of an otherwise beautiful home. To add insult to injury, having damaged drywall isn’t just embarrassing - it can significantly lower the value of your home.

Drywall repairs aren’t something that should be attempted by a novice. We have all seen poorly executed drywall repairs done by a person with limited experience. They stick out like a sore thumb and often look worse than the initial damage. Protect the value of your home and have your drywall repairs done by a professional. You will end up with a professional, seamless repair and avoid frustration and steep learning curve of doing it yourself!   


2) WINDOW BLINDS AND CURTAIN RODS 


Something that is essential to having a comfortable home you can be proud of is window coverings. Blinds, shades and curtains give the privacy you need and the option to let in the sunlight. Window coverings add to the style of your home, inside and out!

While there are more options for window coverings than ever and buying them has never been easier, installation is still a problem for many people. If you don’t have the tools or experience required to hang window coverings they can look bad and even fall off. At FT Property Services we are pros when it comes to window coverings. Let us hang your blinds, shades and curtain rods so you can enjoy them!



3) FURNITURE ASSEMBLY 


Another handyman job that is quite popular is furniture assembly. If you have ever purchased furniture items from Ikea, Wayfair, Structube, Bouclair or the Brick, you know that the assembly can be a daunting task. For some of these items you practically need an engineering degree to make sense of the instructions! And if you don’t have the right tools you’ll be there all day trying to put it together with the allen key they provide.


Over the years we have pretty much assembled everything you can think of. Aside from furniture we also assemble BBQ’s, propane fire pits, children’s play structures, trampolines, treadmills, pergolas and sheds. Save yourself the time and frustration of furniture assembly and have us put your new furniture together.
