What does a windows and doors handyman do?

A handyman can do the installation, repair, replacement, and treatment tasks. They can help you with many types and parts of windows and doors. Whether you need a small repair for a door lock or a full window replacement, you’re in the right place! Let us know what you need, and we’ll connect you to a Tasker who can do the job.

Windows and doors services are useful for construction, home improvement, and damage repair. Request a handyman to do one or more windows and doors services on Airtasker. Describe everything you need on your listing, and we’ll connect you to available Taskers. Here’s a list of standard windows and doors services you can book on our platform. 

Window and door installation

Window and door installation is one of many carpentry tasks you can find on Airtasker. Window and door fitters can help with construction or home improvement tasks. Installing a window usually involves setting up the casing, placing the window, and adding a window stop.

Your handyman may also add extension jambs and trim moulding. Meanwhile, door installation includes: assembling the door frame, pushing the door lining into the opening, inserting screws into the jambs, and hanging the door. Other than window and door installation, Taskers can also do fence installation tasks

Window and door repair

Handymen can repair doors and windows that are damaged or worn out. A repair is a smart option if you’re saving money for a replacement later on. Door and window repair includes repairing cracks (including windscreen repair) and fixing rotten wood frames.

Window and door pros can repair such damages with liquid epoxy and fillers. Then, they may sand and paint over the area. Door repairs include fixing door locks, patching up holes with foam insulation, and filling scratches. After a repair, a cleaning service can clear out any debris. Additionally, your cleaner can get your windows and doors looking good as new

Window and door replacement

If your window or door is beyond repair, or if you’re doing an upgrade, replacement may be your ideal option. Window and door replacement involves the same steps as for installation. But, naturally, replacement includes extra steps in removing old windows, doors, or frames. Replacing a window or door requires carpentry skill and specific tools.   

Window and door treatments

Window and door treatments enhance aesthetics with a cover or modification. “Hard treatments” include installing shutters, blinds, or window shades. Meanwhile, “soft treatments” include putting up curtains and drapery.

A handyman may also add shades or blinds to sliding-glass doors. Curtains and blinds services on Airtasker are an affordable way to add finishing touches to your windows and doors. Taskers may also help you with frosted glass or stained glass treatments. Availability varies from Tasker to Tasker.
