What do shelf hanging services include?
Standard shelf installation services include building wardrobe and pantry shelves and hanging wall shelving. Your professional will ensure your shelf has the right fittings, angles and is structurally sound. Popular shelf installation tasks include:
Install a floating shelf
A floating shelf is attached to a wall with no visible means of support, and are popular for their modern, minimalistic look. To begin installing your floating shelf, your handyman will assess the space and use a stud finder to mark the most secure spot for the brackets. They’ll use an electric drill to make a hole and secure the brackets, using a level to ensure everything lines up perfectly. Once the brackets are installed, they’ll measure the space between them and drill into the shelving to fit these exact measurements. Then they’ll slide the shelving into the brackets.
Install a hanging shelf
Your hanging shelf installer will ensure the best nail type is used for your wall material and the best position to install your shelf. They will use a level to install more than one hanging shelf to ensure they’re mounted evenly. Your installer will advise how much weight the shelf will bear and answer any questions you may have.
Install a wardrobe or pantry shelf
Your shelving installer will advise on the best kind of shelving to suit your space - fixed, adjustable, corner, floating, or pull-out. They will then measure the space. If you’re hiring them to make the shelving, too, they’ll let you know how long it will take them to build your custom shelving. Once the shelves are ready, they’ll use their tools to screw your new shelves into place expertly. If you opt for sliding or rotating shelves, they’ll ensure the shelves pull out smoothly.
Install a garage shelf
Getting your garage or workshop organized with shelving can help with storage and productivity. Your handyman will advise what type of shelving will best suit your space and align this with your weight-bearing requirements. With overhead shelving, your installer will attach the brackets to the ceiling where the joists are located - this is the strongest point in your ceiling.
Your handyman will properly measure the space for your overhead shelving and make sure it will not interfere with your garage door, lighting, and work area. They will then install your shelving, with the longest part going across the joists, so that your new shelves will have the most support possible and not overburden the joists.
