Take the Stress Out of Home Maintenance

Our #1 Handyman Repair
Wood Rot
Wood rot is the kind of home improvement job that should be given high priority and undertaken with some urgency. If wood rot is not addressed it can spread and if untreated, can literally threaten the integrity of your home. Rot is caused by moisture trapped inside wood, which creates the perfect environment for fungi to grow.
A PROFESSIONAL TIP FOR YOU
The best way to beat wood rot, before it has a chance of spreading, is to regularly check to see whether it has begun to appear around your home’s structure. Look especially closely at damp- and moisture-prone areas like under the guttering, around window and door sills, decked areas and roofs. Ideally you should be doing this every two to three months.

If you find wood rot, schedule an estimate with The Trusted Toolbox.
We can also assist you by inspecting the rest of your home.

Homework Areas and Study Stations
Young children and students need a dedicated space at home where they can study, read, write and work on projects and crafts. Home study areas and homework zones are important to encourage learning and study.



If you see any ideas that spark your interest, give us a call. We definitely got quite a bit more experience with these type of projects last year! We will be happy to schedule an appointment for a consultation and estimate.

Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

We've used The Trusted Tool Box before with great results and decided to reach out again to remodel a bathroom replacing a commode, full vanity and flooring. We received a timely detailed estimate from Nate Walters outlining exactly what we wanted. Our craftsman, Elit Cuadros, was professional, detailed and timely. Elit took time to explain each step of the process during our 3 day project. The end result and transformation of this bathroom space is AMAZING! Elit's skills are impeccable! We are very pleased with the results and would use him for all projects! Highly recommended!

Q&A with Chris Lalomia

Q&A with The Trusted Toolbox owner and founder Chris Lalomia

Q:Before The Trusted Toolbox, what was your profession?

A:My last job in the corporate zoo was as SVP over Credit reporting, prior to that I had built a career in a leading business consultancy focused on bank mergers and commercial operations processes

Q:How did the Trusted Toolbox get started?

A:I was working many hours and started to outsource job for my home maintenance and recognized the bad communication, poor accountability and uneven quality from the service I received. I recognized a need that could be serviced with a more professional approach focused on consistency and quality and an easy way to communicate.

Q:What is the most rewarding part of owning the business?

A:I love being able to see people come together and solve problems and see my employees thrive doing what they do best. Watching people perform and create solutions to problems is the most rewarding part. I like to be able to use my ‘whole mind’ and be involved in a number of activities and decisions and take accountability for results or lack of results.

Top 9 Deck Checkpoints for Deck Safety

pine-deck

Deck Safety Awareness

Promote a safe outdoor living environment by thoroughly examining your deck with these top 9 checkpoints:

1) Split or Decaying Wood

Start by checking different areas of your deck to notice any compromised wood. This includes boards, railings, stairs, support posts, and joists. More specifically, look for areas that are regularly exposed to water . Decay might be present if the wood is soft and spongy or can be easily broken off. Also, be on the lookout for holes in the wood which may indicate insects.

2) Flashing

Deck flashing is the plastic or metal guards which direct water away from vulnerable areas, ensuring that your deck stays dry. Be sure that the flashing is structurally stable and consider replacing it or adding more flashing in any areas that collect water.
