Yes, spring is just around the corner—and with our weather, there are many days when you feel that it’s already here! It’s time to tackle all those “preventive maintenance” things that are needed to keep your home in good shape. The items on this checklist can easily be handled by a one-day visit from our Fort Collins Handyman, so give us a call and let us help!

Our Fort Collins Handyman Services Include:

  • Attic – check and clean your attic’s power vents, as well as inspecting all screens for damage before birds start hunting for spring nesting spaces!
  • Exterior of the house – check for any holes in the exterior wall surface, through which animals might enter the fabric of your house. If you removed any downspout extensions for the winter, now is the time to reinstall them.
  • Decking – spring is the time to refinish your decking—providing it’s been dry for a few days—so that your deck is sealed before the sun hits summer strength.
  • Air Conditioner or Evaporative Cooler – last fall you probably were more focused on Thanksgiving than on giving thanks for this machine, but now would be a very good time to clean and prepare your machines for the summer. Take time to make sure there’s no damage to lines or insulation.
  • Outdoor structures – was there snow, ice or wind damage to any part of your outdoor living space this winter? If so, we can fix it.

So are you ready for spring, Fort Collins? We’re glad to help, so contact us today and schedule a visit from our handyman!

Maybe you have a home remodeling project or restoration that you have been putting off. Maybe it is time to transform your kitchen into the one your wife has dreamed of for years. The Importance of Hiring a Licensed and Insured General Contractor is often overlooked. Many customers hire contractors based on low bids or offers. Do not fall into this trap!

Here are some issues to think about when hiring a contractor or Fort Collins remodeling company:

  • If an uninsured worker gets an injury working on your property you can get sued for liability and may have to pay for medical bills.
  • If the contractor is not licensed and insured then you have no recourse if you are not satisfied with the results.
  • Oftentimes uninsured and unlicensed remodeling companies cut corners that wouldn’t pass an inspection.
  • In some cities and states it is illegal to hire an unlicensed or uninsured contractor.
  • You can be responsible for paying taxes for the work done that should be paid by the contractor.
  • Many homeowners’ insurance companies will decline a claim if the work was not performed by a licensed and insured company.

There are many reasons why you should only hire a licensed and insured general contractor. At Artisan Remodeling and Repair we are fully licensed and insured in Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, Johnstown, and Larimer County. Plus, we’re BBB and Angie’s List  accredited with an A rating in both.
