Hanging Floating Shelves, Artwork, Coat Hanger, and a Mirror

Veritas Handyman Services was able to work for a new customer in the Sugar Land, TX area this weekend.  The neighborhood was New Territory, and we just love it there!  I guess we’re a bit biased since we live there, too. 🙂

Anyway… It was our pleasure to wall-mount some floating shelves, and other items, for this customer.  They just moved from out of state, and were looking to get some checklist items handled.

We’ve all been there, but no problem!  We’ve got you covered!

Here are some photos of the job:

The mirror was a little heavy and the shelf was heavier.  Strong anchors were used.
The three floating shelves were made from metal.
Lovely Kincade in the bedroom.
Four magazine-type shelves to the right of the entertainment center.
Office shelf system anchored to the wall.  There’s another, identical one that we did, on the other side.

There were a couple more items, but we forgot to get photos of them.  Mounting anything to the wall (sheet rock) is a very simple DIY job; but folks simply don’t have the time, patience, or tools to do it the way they envision it in their minds.

The family was happy with the results!  We’d imagine that they were probably a lot happier that these items were finally off their checklist.

Call VHS today if you have something that you need secured to the wall.  (346) 274-2614


Another “Under Kitchen Sink” Repair

We at Veritas are not concerned with any kind of fix a customer needs.  Under the sink, or under the house!  Your satisfaction is our number one priority.

The pictures below are from a recent client that had mold and mildew buildup under the kitchen sink.  Our goal was to clean this up properly, and at the lowest cost possible.

Check out what we did for her. 😉


Needless to say, the customer is very happy with this clean up work.  “Many” handymen, and customer’s alike, do NOT like doing this type of work.  It can be taxing on your knees, back, and joints.  Give us a call and we’ll knock this one out for you!

Pool Services

Veritas can assist you in planning where you want to go next with your swimming pool.  The client below used us to completely convert their pool to a saltwater setup, with a variable pump.


Customer wanted this cleaner pump removed, and opted for an all electric model.

Here’s the different pool pumps. The old one on the left is single speed, and the one on the right is a newer “variable speed” pump.l

If you’re interested in doing something similar, give us a call and we’ll do what we can to help.

Deck Builds and Repairs

Deck building and repairs takes time and is very detailed oriented work.  Is it hard?  No!  Anyone can do it!  However… not everyone “wants” to do it.

Below are a couple of photos of a past job that we did.  We will add more to this blog as we find the old photos, and the more decks we work on; but, this should give you a general idea on what your home could look like with a beautiful, new deck installed.


Old Deck
Here’s the customer’s old deck that the builder put on just to have one in place.
New Deck
Here’s what we built for them.

The new deck above is 16′ x 30′.  We also sealed the deck for the customer.

A deck not only gives the homeowner more room to entertain, but it adds value to the home, as well as a “personal touch” that homeowners might be looking for.

Kitchen Faucet Replacement

One of our customers called us because of a leak under their kitchen sink.  This home is a newer home, and the faucet connections were just going bad.  We took the old faucet off to inspect it, and wound up having to replace it because it was extremely damaged and oxidized (inside and out).  Here are some photos of the work:

Here’s how the faucet looked when we showed up. Notice the base?
After clearing up the clutter under the sink, here’s what we found underneath. The “wood” was completely covered in water and that bowl wasn’t catching any of the water. The water you see in there now is from us removing connections under there.
Here’s a close up of the old MOEN faucet.


The base was completely destroyed and oxidized.
Here’s the inside (kind-of).
Here’s the new faucet. We tried to match what the customer already had in place (that particular model was discontinued).


The plan is to go back and clean up under the customer’s sink.  If we cannot, we’ll have to replace the old “wood.”  This is still a WIP, so stay tuned!
