Exterior wear and tear on housing is normal, which is why regular home maintenance is vital to preserving the value of your property.

Below are just a few of the services we offer. If you need additional exterior home repairs, get in touch and we’ll discuss how we can best help you.

Roof Leaks

Left unattended, roof leaks can lead to extensive water damage, which can result in repair costs amounting to thousands of dollars. If you see streaking, warping, or dripping from the ceiling in your property, the time to get roof repairs done is now. If you’re in need of Bellevue roof repairs, we can help you with prompt handyman services.

Chimney and Fireplace Repairs

We offer chimney repairs in greater Seattle Metropolitan Area. If you notice that your chimney is chipping or otherwise damaged, or if you notice a smoky scent in your home, it may be time for chimney repairs. Keeping your chimney and fireplace in good condition helps protect it from the elements while supporting your home’s heating system.

Gutter repairs & replacement

Leaves and debris build up over time in your gutters, clogging them and preventing them from draining properly. Left unattended, this can actually lead to additional issues as water overflows in the wrong places, potentially leading to water damage to both interior and exterior areas in your home. In extreme cases, it can even lead to foundation problems and basement flooding. Chore-ology offers gutter cleaning in Seattle as well as maintenance and repairs whenever necessary.

Fence Repairs

Cracked or rotting fencing degrades the appearance of your home while also posing a potential health hazard to anyone working or playing nearby. We provide handyman fence repair services to residents and communities throughout Bellevue and Seattle.

Seasonal Maintenance

In addition to the above, we offer various seasonal home maintenance services, including junk removal, exterior pressure washing, house painting, fence staining, and window replacements. These are often dependent upon the weather and may not be available year round. We are a family operated handyman based in Mercer Island, Washington. 

 Fascia Trim Repair Project

This photo showcases the replacement of rotted fascia trim and the simultaneous upgrade of the existing cement panel soffit to wood.

 

The upgraded soffit was constructed of clear cedar T&G and was finished with a natural look polyurethane. Trim was painted to match the home.

 Oct 2022: 3rd Floor Chimney Repair & Rebuild

This photo showcases the repair and reconstruction of a 3rd floor chimney chase that was plagued by water damage, wood rot, and pests. The existing Hardie plank siding was removed, damaged framing and sheathing were replaced, and new Hardie plank siding and cedar trim were installed, caulked, primed and painted to match. A failed seam on the chimney cap flashing was the root cause of the water intrusion so we repaired and waterproofed it. Everything was painted to match existing exterior colors.

Highly Qualified Home Repair Professionals

Chore-ology Restoration & Handyman brings decades of industry experience to your home. With experience in both handyman services and property management, we know what it takes to make sure you get the results you need from the work we do.

Water Damage Remediation

Often, exterior cracks and defects lead to water damage, which can get costly if left unattended. Our water damage mitigation services are available on a 24/7 basis to the area around our Mercer Island headquarters, ensuring any water-related emergency you have is handled promptly.

Mold Removal

In addition to water damage remediation, we also offer mold removal for properties that have been exposed to water intrusion long-term. It’s important for this to be handled in a methodical manner with proper tools and training. We have both.

Lead-Based Paint

Chore-ology’s RRP-compliant professionals employ a range of safety measures to avoid health risks from disturbing lead-based paint. When working on homes built before 1978, this is a must.

Asbestos

Older homes often have asbestos insulation, which requires specific training to handle safely. Chore-ology building inspectors are AHERA-certified, ensuring best practices when it comes to dealing with asbestos in residential properties.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the most common cause of roof leaks? Broken shingles, chimney damage, and clogged gutters are all common causes of roof leaks.

Why are my chimney bricks spalling? As water seeps into cracks in your chimney and freezes, it expands, causing flaking, crumbling, and brick displacement over time.

What maintenance does a gas fireplace need? Gas fireplaces need to be cleaned on a regular basis, typically monthly. In addition, a professional inspection every year or two is recommended.

Do I have to replace a damaged fence? It depends on the extent of the damage. Sometimes, you only need to replace a couple of slats or a small section. Widespread decay or damage may necessitate full fence replacement.
