Handyman doing household jobs using drill and flooring

The term “handyman” is very broad, and covers a multitude of potential jobs they can perform. The proficiency of a handyman relies on two main points: what they are comfortable doing, and what they are licensed to do. Some jobs such as large renovations, demolition work, or potentially dangerous jobs should only be done by a contractor who is licensed to perform those tasks. Luckily, our team at The Handyman Company is fully licensed and insured, for your peace of mind as the homeowner. Let’s take a look at some of the key household jobs most handymen can do.

Odd Jobs:

This area of expertise basically encompasses any small job around your home that would like to have completed. It could be a repair, maintenance work or installation work. Our goal is to take your to-do list and make it disappear.

Shelving Installation:

There are areas in everyone’s home that you simply don’t have time to maintain. For that reason, we specialize in shelving installation, so that once you’ve organized a room, it’s it’s as easy as possible for you to find everything and maintain the extra space.

Gutter Cleaning and Repair:

While the concept of cleaning a gutter is simple, there can be some potential complications, including using ladders and the risk of falling. You can just as easily hire the job out to a handyman who will not only clean the gutter, but also inspect for, and repair, damage you may have not even been aware of. A gutter that remains clogged for a period of time could create a leak in the roof, so it’s important to call a handyman first instead of putting off the task until it is more serious.

Painting:

If you are unable to take care of a painting project yourself, or you are simply not confident it will turn out looking stunning, it may be a good time to call a handyman. You may think this is a job that can only be performed by professional painters, but the fact is that most handymen are actually skilled painters as well. Painting and home improvement go hand in hand, so before you consider spending serious money on a professional painter, think about hiring a handyman to do the job for a fraction of the cost.

Electrical Work:

Some handymen are actually not licensed to handle wiring correctly, and therefore are putting you as the homeowner and themselves in danger. While many tasks are easily completed by a handyman without a license, electrical work needs to be done by someone with care, precision and also someone who understands the risks and knows how to interact with wiring safely. Our team at The Handyman Company is ready and waiting to work on your next electrical project!

The list above is by no means a complete list of all of the jobs a handyman can do, but it does give you an idea of the skill level and versatility of a handyman.
