Handyman Home Repair Expert
Our company was established in 2002 and began with a tool box and the belief that your house should be your haven – a calming place to retreat to when you need a break from the outside world. It should be your oasis.
But it’s hard to relax around a crumbling ceiling, chipping paint, and water damage. Sometimes, your haven needs improvement. So, that’s where we come in. We’re the best in home improvement in NY and our goal is simple: to help people live in a place they love.
When we look at a house, we don’t see walls, ceiling, and floors – we see potential. We start with your vision and work with you to turn your dream into a reality. And we’ve been turning dreams into realities for over fifteen years.
Of course, even your dream house requires maintenance. We can fix leaky faucets, install tile, and do doors repair. To help us, we only hire the best. Our staff is knowledgeable and can answer any questions you may have.
We want to bring our expert skills right to your doorstep
We want to bring our expert skills right to your doorstep in NY, where we’re proudly located. New York is known as “The City That Never Sleeps” and it’s called that for a few reasons: the twenty-four-hour subway system, late night restaurants, and streets that are never empty because people are out at all hours of the night. It never stops, so why should you? We understand that, like New York, you’re busy – maybe with work, kids, soccer games, college classes, volunteering at the animal shelter, training for a marathon, starting your own business, walking your dog, or whatever else life throws at you. So, we can work around your schedule and provide speedy service. Because who has time to wait around for hours and waste money on sub-par work?
The difference between us and the other guy is we know your time and money is valuable, so we want to provide you with high-quality work for a fair price. Because this isn’t just a job to us – this is about turning a house into something more. And we take pride in what we do.
Improvement and Renovations
Maybe you want to refinish and stain the kitchen cabinets, but you haven’t gotten around to it. Perhaps you have a home improvement project that you started last spring and never finished. Maybe you bought a fixer-upper and then became overwhelmed by the seemingly endless amount of work to be done. Are you ready for your house to stop being a work in progress so you can enjoy it?
If you’re looking for home improvement services in NY, we offer a wide array:
• Drywall Repair, Finish, Install, Paint, Mount, and More
• Faucet Installation and Repair
• Tile Installation and Repair
• Acoustic Ceiling Installation and Repair
Improvement is an umbrella term for any changes you make to your house that will add value, such as finishing your basement or installing hardwood floors. You may have seen renovation TV shows and thought ‘I could do that.’ Unfortunately, making improvements isn’t as simple as it seems. You would need tools and supplies, lots of planning, and research or knowledge to ensure your project is done correctly, the first time.
There has been a 36% rise in do-it-yourself, or DIY, improvement. But some people don’t have the time or energy to renovate. That’s why you should call us. We’re well-versed in all aspects of home improvement.
Call 917-400-4298 to speak to us about what we can do for your home
These are just a few examples of what we can do:
We can install cabinets, replace your old countertop with beautiful granite for a luxurious finish, and update your flooring. Also, we could add a fresh coat of paint in a modern shade and install the kitchen island you’ve always wanted.
We could paint a focal wall to wake up your décor, make built-in bookshelves to display your collection, knick-knacks, and photo albums, or add a fireplace (because there’s nothing better than the crackle of a fireplace in the winter).
Maybe you want to expand the bathroom and add a soaker tub or install heated tiles. Maybe a rainwater shower head and a new sink and vanity would complete your bathroom oasis. We can make that happen.
You should be able to relax in your master bedroom, but maybe there’s something keeping you up at night (looking at you piles of laundry and cluttered nightstands). We can add storage by turning your closet into a walk-in closet. Also, we could repaint and install new lighting. Then, you’ll be having sweet dreams.
Does your basement look like something out of a horror movie? We can fix that! We’re experts at turning dark and dingy into bright and cheery. We can clean out the cobwebs and make your basement a usable living space. We can drywall, paint, install an acoustic drop ceiling, and install new flooring to make your basement a place people will want to be (and not run to get away from).
We can prepare and repaint your walls to give them a fresh, new look. We can even paint ceilings and the exterior of your home or business. When you hire us to paint, we’ll start by discussing which paint finish would suit your needs: flat/matte, eggshell, satin, semi-gloss, and high-gloss. Our experts can educate you on which paint finish is best for the room.
For example, if we’re painting a kitchen, the paint you choose should be durable yet easy to clean and have a semi-gloss or high-gloss finish. This will help keep it looking great for years to come. If the living room or family room is to be painted, we’d recommend a satin finish that can be easily wiped down, especially if you have kids. The dining room and bedrooms are considered low-traffic areas, so they can be painted in an eggshell and flat/matte finish respectively for a clean look.
If it can be done with drywall, we do it. We install, finish, paint, repair, and mount drywall to update your space. When we arrive at your home to drywall, we’ll prepare the room by covering electrical and plumbing lines. From hammering sheets of drywall in place to using a saw to make cut outs for windows and doors, we’ll make sure the final result has a “wow” factor.
Faucet Installation and Repair
Often, sinks can be updated by simply changing the faucet, giving them a whole new look and saving you money. Our experts will help you choose a beautiful, new faucet that’s within your budget and install it. You’ll wonder why you didn’t change it sooner.
When the parts inside your faucet age or become worn, it may drip or leak or the handle may become difficult to turn, for instance. Fortunately, we can fix that and return the faucet to its former glory in no time.
Tile Installation and Repair
Tile installation is a big job that requires lots of work; it’s not for the novice DIYer. Call us to install that beautiful, glazed ceramic tile in the foyer. We’ll work quickly yet carefully to ensure it doesn’t chip or crack. When it’s done, you’ll have flooring that lasts.
Acoustic Ceiling Installation and Repair
The tiles used to make an acoustic ceiling, or acoustic drop ceiling, are made of mineral fiber to absorb sound to prevent echoes. This is a great option for homes or businesses because it can prevent loud sounds.
While there are several ways to create an acoustic ceiling, we can help you decide what would work best for your home or business, whether it’s your kids’ playroom or a concert venue. We’ll even discuss the location of the lighting and if you want recessed lighting.
We will take care of the wiring, cutting, measuring, mounting, and installation. Before you know it, you’ll have a new acoustic ceiling!
Our New York experts can even repair an acoustic ceiling if, say, a tile falls out or becomes water damaged. To speak to use about your specific needs or to hire the best, call 917 400-4298. As always, you can get a free estimate.

When looking for new doors, you may be overwhelmed by all the choices – brands, designs, window panes, knobs, and more. Don’t worry… we know knows doors, doors repair, and how important doors are for security, energy efficiency, and aesthetics (since they’re the first thing guests see when entering your home). So, we can take the guesswork out of choosing a new door and help you stay in budget. After all, you don’t have to pay a fortune to get a stylish door to replace your drafty one.
When your handyman arrives, he’ll start by measuring your door, since knowing the dimensions will be necessary when selecting a new door. This is done by opening the door and measuring the height of the frame from the sill at the very bottom to the top, where the exterior trim begins. Then, they will measure the width at the top, center, and bottom of the door. If the measurement varies, they’ll use the shortest one for accuracy. Then, you may select a door, verifying the door will have enough space to open and close, unobstructed. If you’re having a difficult time finding a door that will fit in an older home, for example, custom doors can be made.
Next, you will decide what kind of door will work best for you. If you’re replacing a drafty door, you may want to consider a new, energy-efficient door. They come in many styles and can lower your energy bill. Also, installation can be a snap with pre-hung doors.
As an added bonus, a new exterior door can increase your home’s value and curb appeal. Your drab, drafty door can become a grand entrance.
When choosing a door, the following materials are available: steel, fiberglass, and wood.
Steel – This is a no-nonsense option that’s affordable for anyone. It can withstand any climate (NY winters included) and doesn’t require much up-keep. Also, it’s strong and durable, great for those who want extra security. Since the industrial look of steel isn’t for everyone, glass inserts can be added for a truly unique look. Beautiful and functional.
Fiberglass – This is the most common type of door that can be seen in any neighborhood. Of course, there are countless varieties, with or without glass panes, and they can even mimic real wood. They’re great for NY weather and virtually no maintenance is needed.
Wood – Maybe you’re building your dream home and want your front door to make a statement. A stunning, hand-carved wooden door would be the crown jewel of your new construction. However, even though you may be poring over wood doors, keep in mind they require much maintenance. They need to be refinished every few years to prevent warping.
No matter what material you choose, it’s recommended you have an overhang to protect the door’s finish. Here are some simple tips on maintaining your exterior door.
You may choose different details to help your door stand out, like handles, panels, and glass inserts. Your handyman can guide you so can be confident in your door choice.

By hiring us, you’ll have access to services by a professional locksmith, which is just one thing that sets us apart from other companies. If you need locksmith services, call Handyman Home Repair Expert at 917 400-4298 to get help now. We provide emergency service and you can get a free estimate.
Here are some services we provide:
• Key duplication
• Re-keying locks
• Installing and servicing high-security locks
• Assisting with lockouts
• Lock repair and replacement
So, you may be wondering why you’d need a locksmith. Sure, they’re useful if you lock yourself out of your home or car, but they can also provide peace of mind.
Imagine this: you’re sitting in your living room by yourself, watching your favorite show, and the kids are asleep upstairs. It’s late, your significant other is out of town on a business trip, and your family’s cat is asleep at your feet. Suddenly, you hear a strange noise, so you get up to see what it was, only to see the knob of your front door wiggle and begin to turn. Immediately, your mind begins to race, and you panic. Someone is trying to break in! I need to call the police… I have to keep the kids safe!
It’s a scary scenario, but it can happen to anyone. In fact, a home burglary occurs every thirteen seconds in the US. Over two million people have been the victims of burglary. But a locksmith can help prevent it from happening to you.
Your handyman will come to your home to discuss the best security measures to take. Here are other ways to stay safe:
Upgrading Your Locks
This might seem obvious, but locks are often a home’s only defense against break-ins. So, when selecting a new lock, ask if it protects against bump keys. Can the metal be broken? If you don’t have a high-security lock, consider getting a deadbolt, which is more important than a handle or knob lock. With our locksmith service, we can help you choose a lock and install it, so you know your home is secure.
Use a Screened Door
Most people don’t know a screened door is intended to act as extra security; instead of getting through one door, a burglar would have to get through two. Also, screen doors are harder to kick in and additional locks can be added. Just be sure to look for a screen door that provides the level of security you’re looking for.
Replace Your Front Door
A locksmith can help you bulk up your security by replacing your door with one that has a steel or iron core. If you really want your home to be secure, you can even opt for a vault door. Of course, this won’t be aesthetically pleasing, but security may be more important than style.
Use Security Devices
A security device works by fortifying a locked door from the inside because a secured door can’t be opened from the outside. This is a good option for those who don’t use their front door often.
Use a Monitoring System
In case of a burglary or attempted break-in, it’s a good idea to have a monitoring system. You can use an alarm system (there are even options where the police are notified in case of a break-in) and surveillance cameras, but both each has pros and cons.
Another option is to have a security system you can access from your smartphone, so you can see what’s going on in your house or around your property, even if you’re hours away. Also, you can ask us about installing a high-security lock (also known as a smart lock), which keeps a log of when it’s used. These are great choices when paired with the security measures suggested by our experts.
Security should never be an after-thought. Our expert doors repair and locksmith services can help make your house safe, so you can sleep soundly at night, knowing that we’ve got you covered. Call us to get a free estimate or emergency service at 917 400-4298.
