How to Find the Best Handyman

Keeping everything in your home in prime condition is a difficult and time-consuming task. Trying to keep your home, garden, furniture, and appliances in tip-top shape can be overwhelming if you don’t get any help. It’s a good thing finding a professional handyman to take care of these tasks for you is so much easier these days.

If you have a variety of simple tasks around the house, the expertise of a top-notch handyman is highly valuable. Whether you’re looking for a furniture assembly service or room painting service, they can help you out.

What tasks can a handyman do for you?

Defining the scope of work that a handyman can do is a futile task because the list of jobs that they can handle is definitely a long one. In most cases, you can rely on a handyman to work on the odd jobs you might have at home. However, many handymen are also equipped to do small tasks that are usually done by specialised contractors.

Here are some of the most common tasks accomplished by handymen:

  1. Cleaning and general maintenance
    Many handymen can do basic cleaning tasks both inside and outside your property. These can include cleaning gutters, removing leaves, branches, and other garden rubbish, and pressure cleaning paths.

  2. Plumbing and electrical work
    While complex plumbing and electrical tasks should definitely be done by licensed professionals, there are several simple things that can be done by a skilled handyman. These include installing simple lighting fixtures or replacing a leaking tap or showerhead. For plumbing and electrical jobs that are more complicated than those, it’s best to call on a licensed plumber or electrician.

  3. Painting and renovation
    Minor painting and touch-up jobs can definitely be dealt with by a good handyman. If you just want to paint a room, re-tile your kitchen benchtop, or move some furniture around the house, you can count on a handyman to help you out. They can also lend you a hand with plastering work.

  4. Carpentry
    Looking for someone to build you a bookshelf or table? You don’t have to call on a professional carpenter to work on that; a skilled handyman can also work on simple carpentry and joinery jobs.

  5. Furniture assembly
    If you’re finding it difficult to assemble the bed or the flat pack kitchen that you just bought, you can always call on a handyman for assistance. Many handymen are fully capable of providing furniture assembly, flat pack assembly, and other assembly services.

  6. Installation jobs
    Handymen can install a wide range of things from appliances like TVs and home theatre systems to picture frames, mirrors, and other wall hangings. Although these can be DIYed, the expertise and the professional tools of a handyman can make these tasks more easily accomplished.

Top tips for hiring a house handyman

If you want to find a handyman who is reliable, affordable, and capable, be prepared to put in some effort. It’s quite easy to jump the gun and hire the one who offers you the lowest quote, but cheap handymen who churn out top-notch work are a one in a million. If you want to get the best value for your money, you have to get estimates from several businesses, and you need to do a bit of background research on each one.

Before settling on a handyman, make it a point to read the following tips.

  1. Make sure that your job can be legally done by a handyman.
    This is especially important if your task involves plumbing, electrical work, or building work. To make sure that a handyman is qualified enough to do your job, it’s always advisable to check with your local council first.

  2. Know the qualifications and level of experience of the handyman you’re considering.
    If you’re hiring a handyman specifically to lay some bricks or to build a cabinet, you need to make sure that they’ve dealt with these types of jobs before. Although a handyman is a jack of all trades, most of them still have areas of expertise. The best way to make sure if you’re getting the right handyman for the job is to check the past jobs that they’ve worked on.

  3. Compare and analyse each quote.
    What seems to be the cheapest price at first glance doesn’t always give you the best value. When you get quotes for local handyman services, make sure that you scrutinise what each quote includes. Does it include the price for materials? Is it a fixed price or an hourly rate? Knowing these things can help you avoid the shock of excess fees in the end.

  4. Check out the reviews from their previous customers.
    Although a business’ qualifications and experience can tell you a lot about their quality, customer reviews can still reveal a lot of important information about them. By reading up on the feedback left for them by their past customers, you will know if the business is reliable, prompt, honest, and so on.

  5. Ask if they have insurance.
    Accidents can happen in almost any job. This is why it’s essential for the handyman you’re hiring to be covered by insurance. If they have public liability insurance, then you’re covered for some accidents that might happen as a result of their work.

  6. Get a written contract.
    To guarantee that you won’t get shortchanged for your job, make sure that you’ve got every detail of the agreement written down. From the schedule to the price, the mode of payment to the supplier of materials, make sure that everything is crystal clear before you sign the contract.

The cost of a professional handyman service

On the average, the cost of handyman services range between $45 per hour to $50 per hour depending on the location of the job. Of course, the scope of the job will also be a huge factor in the final price — easier jobs such as picture hanging will surely cost less than painting jobs.
