Very professional and fair prices! We got our vanity replaced as well as new pipes for that. We... also got a new mirror hung and light fixtures. It all turned out fantastic! We will do a minor paint touch up ourselves ( we just decided to do that ourselves no fault of Agile) it looks great.read more

Cole is so awesome. He helped us build a beautiful pergola in our backyard. Our family is very... happy with it. We encountered and realized some height issues two days before the installation.

Definitely will come back and work with Cole again in the future.read more

We had service done with Cole through a referral. He was incredibly great to work with, thorough,... and clean. His professionalism and desire to do things correctly as opposed to just getting it done and over with is hard to come by. He cleaned everything up, wore a mask at our request the whole time, helped explain what he was doing and why and moved the furniture back after he finished. We have their card now, and they will be our handyman of choice whenever we have a project we need help with. This is the type of service that makes you feel like paying someone for help is a worthwhile investment.read more

I contacted Cole about fixing our couch whose middle seat support had failed after we moved. He not... only went above and beyond in the repair, he also offered to look at or fix anything else we might need since he was there and had time. We ended up also having him help us with a door that wasn't closing correctly. He easily solved the problem, and we couldn't be happier! Absolutely wonderful service from a handyman who genuinely cares about his customers. I will continue to use his services, and recommend him to anyone who needs handy work!read more

Cole is amazing! He responded immediately with a very detailed and reasonable quote after reviewing... photos of a flood repair with drywall, painting and molding replacement.

My wife and I were extremely pleased with Agile. We were in a pinch: we needed an emergency... front-door replacement on a Saturday. Cole Chesnut answered our phone call right away and offered to start work in 30 minutes. We were amazed! He went above and beyond the call of duty on such short notice: buying all the supplies, sending us pictures of the options from the store so we could be involved in the purchasing and pricing decisions, and finishing the job the same day. We were very satisfied with his workmanship and his customer service. We have already recommended him to our neighbors. We feel he is honest and diligent.read more

Cole did a very good job at our house and he is an honest contractor. We had a leaking bathtub... which we thought it was a plumber problem after trouble shooting we found that it was a loose connector. He gave us the quotation with plumber service charge to begin with and when he found that it was not, he adjusted the charge for us. His work was very neat. He had to cut holes in drywall and ceiling for inspection and he fixed it neatly. It's hard to tell that the wall and ceiling were cut. Plus, before starting his work, he covered our furniture, hardwood floor and carpet nicely and also his cleanup. So we didn't not have any complaints with that.I would recommend Agile Building Construction for your coming project, I will have them for our interior painting project this summer for sure!read more

Cleaning out your dryer vent is one of the most important home maintenance items.
According to the US Fire Administration, failure to clean the dryer vent is the leading cause of house fires, causing 34% of all residential fires. Approximately 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. This shows the importance of proper maintenance and regular cleaning of the dryer for your home and family’s safety.
I made a video about how to clean out a dryer vent and posted it on Youtube. You can watch it and read the transcript further below.
First, here is a list of tools you will need if you want to do it yourself.
In addition to a drill and a vacuum, here is a list of the tools I used:
An air blower can be helpful too, though I didn’t show that in this video.
Dryer Vent Booster Fan
I didn’t show how to do it in this video, but I’ve installed this dryer vent booster fan in a few different homes. It is quiet, works great, and lasts a long time. I highly recommend this one:
Hi, I’m Cole. In this video, I’m going to show you how to do a deep clean on your laundry dryer and to clean out the dryer vent duct behind the dryer all the way to the outside.
This small brush can be used to clean out the lint trap on your dryer.
A larger brush like this, with a flexible wire can be used into the back of the dryer to clean up that part of the vent.
This one with a semi-rigid pole, kind of almost like tent poles can be used to clean out a longer run of duct. Connect the poles together as needed.
This is a flexible crevice tool attachment to be connected to a shop vac or a vacuum cleaner to clean out the lint trap inside the dryer. And you can buy a set with various attachments to attach to different sizes of vacuum hoses.
If you do want to do it yourself, I’ll put links in the description so that you can buy these tools that I showed you.
I recommend wearing a dust mask while you’re doing this.
I usually start with the lint trap of course
I’ll use my flexible crevice tool to vacuum this out.
Your lint screen or lint trap might also be in here instead of like this one is up top.
Remove the vent from the back of the dryer, the duct just like so. You can use this flexible big brush to kind of ream this out. Push it in as far as it will go. Might as well clean up the area behind there too while I’m at it. For good measure I’ll put this one up there too.
Make sure this flex duct is clean as well. There’s no holes or leaks in it. Or else it should be replaced. They’re pretty cheap and easy to replace. So it’s a good time to do it while you’re cleaning.
Then on the outside I have these plastic louvers. I can bend them just a little bit and pop them out just like so.
Then run this in.
Now connect this all back together.
Blow any of the loose dust and lint out .
It’s working good again. This one is quite special. You can see how full this one is. Pretty much almost blocked, almost fully blocked with lint. All that lint just in that little bit of pipe there.
So what I’m going to do is replace all that duct work and reroute it so that it’s a shorter distance. And also I’m going to install a dryer vent booster fan.
You can see that cleaning the dryer is usually pretty easy. Although some cases can be challenging. Sometimes it’s hard to reach the outlet of a dryer vent if it’s up high, maybe on the roof or something like that, sometimes there’s a bird’s nest inside of the vent. That’s a difficult situation.
You can probably do it yourself. I’d say give it a try and if not, let me know. I can do it for you.
