Part of a recent job required the repair of some rotted exterior wood on a house .
The wood brickmold and trim boards were badly rotted as you can see in the first two photos. I removed the rotted wood and replaced the trim board with well seasoned treated wood, which I keep for this type of repair. The wooden brickmold was replaced with a vinyl brickmold which will not be susceptable to rot or insect damage.
The third photo shows the completed repair before priming, caulking and painting. In the fourth photo the completed repair is shown.

As a handyman , I often work on doors. In the picture above, you can see the rust on the steel door. The wood trim around the door was loose and there were problem areas that had to be patched and sanded. After securing the trim with screws and caulking, the door and trim were then primed, and painted with a good quality exterior paint. I also installed a new triple track, self storing storm door.

A list of repairs to the home included cutting a shelf to fit in between some framing. With just a hand saw, a chisel and a mallet, the job was done and I went on to complete the rest of the items on the repair list for the home.
