Power washing

Handymen offer power washing services which include cleaning your home's exterior, roof, fence, deck, patio or driveway using a power washer on the appropriate setting. These services are often requested in combination with painting services as power washing is a great way to prepare a surface for painting.

Gutter cleaning and roofing
