Panama City Home Repairs

Whether you are a new homeowner with limited handyman experience or a long-time DIYer, there are some easy things everyone should know how to fix.

Knowing how to fix these few common household problems can help save you from a pricey repair bill.

How to Fix a Wobbly Ceiling Fan

A fan that wobbles a lot can be dangerous and needs to be adjusted. You can learn how to check and adjust the ceiling fan by watching any number of YouTube videos or visiting one of the many appliance repair sites.

How to Fix a Running Toilet

Fixing a running toilet is relatively easy and if left to run can be quite expensive in your water bill. You can purchase the insides which come with instructions from your local big box store. The trick is to make sure you empty the reservoir. I use a large sponge to get the last water at the bottom.

How to Fix a Crack in Drywall

With a taping knife and utility knife, along with some drywall tape, pre-mixed joint compound and setting type compound you can fix a crack in drywall. Search for drywall repairs and you'll find all manor of videos and DIY sites to help.

How to Fix a Leaky Faucet

Sometimes a leaky faucet can be repaired in about an hour by simply replacing a washer. Depending your type of faucet, you can find many videos and DIY website instructions using a simple "leaky faucet repair" search.

How to Fix Cracked Grout

Repairing cracked doesn't need to include re-tiling a bathroom or kitchen. Simply remove the old grout and replace it with caulk

Remove loose and cracked grout with a grout saw or Dremel tool and vacuum out the gaps, apply caulk and smooth it with a wet finger or plastic spoon. Tile caulk is available at your local hardware or big box store.

How to Fix a Clogged Drain

Keeping a plunger and drain snake readily available will help to quickly clear most drain problems in a few minutes.

How to Fix Leather and Vinyl

an inexpensive leather/vinyl repair kit can help you fix most small tears before they get bigger in just a few minutes.
