Odd Jobs Around the Home

Obscure jobs our Hubbies have undertaken

 

 

 

Replacing window sash cords and spiral balances

 

Sash windows make a lovely decorative feature whilst providing a functional addition to any home. You’ll find sash windows throughout Australia. Like with anything, over time faults may develop. Common faults with sash windows can lay with the cords and spiral balances. Speak to Hire A Hubby to see if your Hubby can assist in replacing these parts before spending out on a Sash Window specialist.

 

 

Replacing broken/damaged floor boards

 

All floors are susceptible to damage. If you have floor boards that have started to warp or have dents, cracks or staining, you may like to give Hire A Hubby a call. Localised damage i.e. a single floor board, may be easier to correct. If the board is beyond repair and needs replacing it will require a lot more skill and craftsmanship. While there are specialists in this field, you may like to first speak to one of our Hubbies and ask for a quote.

 

 

Replacing worn rollers on sliding doors, wardrobe doors, balcony doors and Bi-fold doors

 

Over time, and usually due to age, rollers for all types of sliding doors can wear thin. If you are experiencing problems with your doors, why not get Hire A Hubby to look at them for you.
