Just moved in? We know that it can take a lot of time and effort to transform a new house into something that actually looks and feels like your home. Plus, often finding the time or energy to tackle those tasks can feel like an impossible feat. But with handymen and renovations experts readily available at To Do-Done for interior and exterior work, you don’t have to worry about trying to carve out time from your already hectic schedule. Your home can feel like exactly that, inside and out, in no time!

Here are just a few of the many ways that our handyman service can help transform your new house into a home for you and your family. And don’t forget, whether your new purchase requires some significant upgrades, or simple repairs and tasks throughout the house, To Do-Done is here to help!

A Fresh New Paintjob

It’s a wonder how much of a difference a lick of paint can make when turning a new house into something that feels more welcoming and comfortable. Often, one of the first things to tackle when you move into your new house is adding a fresh coat of paint to each room anyway, so have at it and make your investment something special! And, if the walls need to be patched up and sanded before painting, our handyman services can take care of what you need to have your walls ready to decorate. We’ll even paint them if you want to focus on other odd jobs around the house and don’t have time!

Outdoor Maintenance

We weren’t kidding when we said inside and out! Our handyman services don’t just address your needs on the inside – we can help clean up, repair and maintain the exterior as well. That includes items such as pressure washing the siding, decks, or patios, cleaning the windows and gutters, refurbishing walkways, and entranceways – you name it, we do it! That way, your new home doesn’t just look its best but also is ready for the ever-changing Canadian weather. Mother nature is not your friend, especially in winter, but To Do-Done certainly is with the help of our experienced handymen and renovators who know the ins and outs of outdoor maintenance!

Basement Upgrade

If you’ve just moved into your new home and the basement is bare-bones, we can finish it for you. Basements are often underrated and underutilized, but with our team of experts, we can transform that space into whatever you need – a games room, play area for the kids, a home gym, office, or even a secondary suite that you can leverage for some extra income! We can make it warm, cozy and comfortable so you’ll actually enjoy spending time in the basement. 

Custom Cabinets or Closets

Need some customized cabinets or closets? We’re the team to call. We can work with you to design cabinetry for your kitchen pantry, laundry room, mudroom or anywhere else where you want to enhance your storage capacity. We can create the closet of your dreams with tailored designs that include all of the shelving units you need to keep your best dresses, shoes, and accessories neat and organized. No matter what you need, our team can take care of the carpentry projects you want for your home.

Deck or Fence

Beyond basic maintenance, we can enhance your backyard to make it even more inviting and enjoyable. If your current deck is severely weathered and needs to be replaced, we can install a new deck that you’ll love. Even if you just have a slab of concrete, we can create a deck and patio area so you can make the most of your time outdoors and have a designated spot to host friends or family. We can even design and build decorative structures like a pergola so you can have a central feature in your yard where you can lounge and enjoy some shade. 

In-Floor Heating

If you hate stepping out of bed onto icy cold floors, we can install radiant in-floor heating. This will generate heat from the floor so you can walk around with bare feet while keeping cozy and warm. It can provide consistent and efficient warmth throughout your entire home to make our Ottawa winters much more tolerable.


Not a fan of the current tiles in your bathroom or kitchen? Choose the designs that you love and we will come and install them. Our flooring experts can retile your bathroom, kitchen, mudroom, and anywhere you want to create a fresh, new look. We can even offer suggestions for the style and grout to match with your home and lifestyle.  

Tiling and Flooring Remodel

Remodelling Upgrades

If you require some remodelling upgrades throughout the home, such as a new vanity for your bathroom or new cabinetry in the kitchen, you don’t have to fumble with granite counters and water seals; reach out to expert handymen instead to tackle the work for you! We can handle remodellings, extensive renovations – practically anything that comes to mind! We’re committed to helping you get the most out of your home without getting exhausted and stressed, which is one of the key benefits of choosing an expert handyman for such upgrades. We’ll even handle tiling the bathroom or redoing the kitchen flooring. Whether small upgrades or large reno projects, we can take care of them all.

Furniture Assembly and Installations
