What can influence the cost of a job

Your chosen handyman will determine the cost of your job based on a variety of factors such as:

Number of items

Most handymen charge hourly rates, and it will take them a longer time to finish a job that involves multiple pictures and mirrors. This is why it’s best to prepare an ample budget if your job involves having more than one or two items.

Degree of difficulty

Jobs can be a bit tricky depending on the surface where the pictures or mirrors will be hung. Hanging pictures or mirrors on drywall or wood tend to be a simple job, so it’s usually affordable. Drywall and wood are relatively easy to make a hole in, so they won’t require extra effort. If you plan on having a picture or a mirror installed on a tiled wall, expect to pay a bit more money. This job requires care and special tools so as not damage the material.

Number of workers required

Additional handymen might be required if your item is too big and heavy for one person to properly carry and install. You must be willing to spend more for cases like this.

Your location affects cost

Handymen in Queensland and Victoria charge the same average rate for picture and mirror hanging, which is $45/hr. Meanwhile, the same service costs about $58/hr in New South Wales.

If you hae pictures or mirrors to be hung on your walls, hire only the best and most experienced handymen available in your area. Look for them today on
