A handyman company can complete small repairs around your house in which you may not have the experience or time to finish. You can hire a handy person to complete one job or a whole list of small jobs. You should also expect your handyman to have a minimum charge, so you may want to make a list of possible projects before you pick up your phone.
What Can a Handyman Do?
A handyman company technician can:
- Fix loose cabinets doors
- Stop a dripping faucet
- Rewire a faulty light switch
- Install a tubular skylight
- Repair a fence or rebuild a gate
- Replace an outdated light fixture
- Stain your deck
- Fix dry rot and make other pest-related repairs
Once you are sure that you have a job that an experienced handyman can handle, call some companies or a few people who can make some handyman repairs. While a professional handyman is often known as a jack of all trades, some do specialize in certain tasks. Also, a handyman may not feel comfortable completing a certain type of project. You should also keep in mind that a handyman may have to be licensed in your state to work on septic, gas, or other specialized systems.
