We recommend the appropriate fastener, and we install it. Most wall framing is covered with drywall that typically measures 1/2 or 5/8 inch thick. The wooden framing within the walls, called studs, are typically spaced 16 inches apart. We locate the studs with an electronic stud finder. To hang light-weight items, we drill through the wall covering to insert an expandable plastic screw anchor. Heavier objects, such as a large mirror or shelf, need to be supported by hardware that attach to the wall stud framing or we drill & install expandable anchors into the brick or concrete.

Eliminate the clutter. Get organized with storage shelves and racks! The three most popular and functional styles of garage shelving are freestanding, wall-mounted, and ceiling-mounted. We fully assemble & position the shelving. Whatever you choose for your shelving system, the appropriate shelving will become a welcomed space saver in your home or garage. If desired, most shelving can be painted to match a room's décor.
Once you select the approximate location and viewing angle for your TV, we will assist you in choosing the type of TV wall mount required. Depending on the wall material (drywall, wood, brick, concrete) we will recommend the best method to secure the bracket to the wall. Using an electronic stud finder, we will locate the studs in your wall to mount the TV. Wall studs provide a sturdy anchor point, ensuring that both the mount and TV stay in place. A general rule of thumb is up to 35 kg (80 lbs) of weight for a single stud; however, the TV mount specifications will be followed.
Our Canadian seasonal changes can cause your fence and gates to wear and not function as intended. These common conditions take a toll on the longevity of fence posts, panels, pickets, gate posts and latches. We reinforce or replace damaged parts and adjust where necessary so they function like new.
Our deck repairs include replacing loose rails, broken floorboards, loose steps, retighten flooring and railing screws. Pressure washing is often used to remove the build up of dirt and debris to refresh the look of the wood surfaces. We do not use chemicals or toxic detergents; however, the removal of isolated stubborn stains may require the use of a wood surface stripping product in place of overly aggressive washing. In many cases, a natural wood deck requires upkeep every few years. This type of maintenance helps to keep the surface of the wood attractive and friendly to bare feet and your deck will continue to look beautiful.
Doors stick for several reasons, from excessive wear to swelling from humidity. In most cases, it's easy to unstick a stubborn door. Door locks wear after several years of use. Replacement of the internal parts depends on the age of the lockset. In some cases, the best alternative is to replace & install a new lockset with one of your choice of make and colour.
Walls in our homes are subject to wear and tear, especially in high-traffic areas like the mud room, recreation room, kitchen and living room. The job could be the repair of a simple ding in the drywall to repairing much larger areas. If a hole in the wall can be covered with a "patch," then the repair is relatively simple and fast. For larger holes, we typically start by cutting out a square shape and then insert screening and apply a layer of drywall compound. Once the compound is dry, we sand the surface smooth and paint over the patchwork with a color that matches the wall. In most cases, the patched area will blend seamlessly.
