Who do I call to caulk windows?

Hello,

I live in a house that's ~20 years old and the windows need recaulking as they're getting moldy. Who do I call to do this work?

Thank you,
Michelle

Do you own or rent?

I own the house so I can't just call up the landlord...

Moldy after 20 years??


Ask here for a handyman, check rent a renter.ch or use a local company. Or do it yourself?

I would take a couple of pictures and offer the job in renovero or ofri. I have very good experience with both sites so far.

I am sure you get enough people there willing to get few hundred francs for an easy job .

I second Renovero - have had only good experiences there and it's quite easy to know who to avoid.
