What You Should Know about Hiring a Handyman

It takes quite an effort to keep your home in the best condition. Having your abode in disarray or dealing with broken furniture or appliances can be inevitable. At some point, your home or some parts of it will eventually show signs of wear, and it could be because of frequent use or the lack of proper care.

Taking care of these matters all by yourself can be troublesome, complicated, and exhausting. Moreover, there are chances that you’ll do it wrong and risk further damage. This means having to shell out a bigger amount than the initial cost. Most certainly, you don’t want this to happen, and it’s a good thing that you can easily get a professional handyman service in Adelaide.

What tasks can a handyman do for you?

Handymen are jacks of all trades; they can definitely do a wide range of tasks around the house. Sometimes it can be difficult to determine the scope of work that they are able to do, but in general, you can count on them to help you with any odd jobs that you might have in your property. Aside from this, handyman services may also cover small tasks that are typically done by specialised contractors.

Here are some types of tasks that your local handyman can do for you:

  1. Carpentry
    If you need a simple desk at home or a shelf that will hold your precious books, you don’t need to hire a carpenter in your area to get it done. You can find a handyman who is skilled enough to accomplish simple jobs related to carpentry and joinery.

  2. Cleaning and general maintenance
    Handymen can also get their hands dirty if it means you’ll be having a clean home and a healthy environment. They can tidy up both the internal and external areas in your property. Some of their cleaning services may include removing leaves, branches, and other types of garden rubbish as well as pressure cleaning driveways and paths.

  3. Furniture assembly
    Setting up your new furniture may seem like an easy job. However, figuring out how to assemble flat packs can be confounding, and it might take some time before you finally finish the task. Many handymen can assist you with this; they can provide you with efficient flat pack assembly and furniture assembly services.

  4. Installations
    A lot of handymen are adept in installing appliances and various wall hangings inside a house. From TVs and home theatre systems to mirrors and picture frames, they can ensure a seamless installation. You might be thinking that these can be DIYed, but remember that having a trusty handyman means getting the job done in no time.

  5. Painting
    A house handyman can definitely handle minor painting jobs and touch-ups. If you need help with plastering or re-tiling kitchen benchtops, you can rely on them as well.

  6. Plumbing and electrical work
    It is often recommended to get licensed professionals for plumbing and electrical jobs. However, for simple tasks like installing or replacing lighting fixtures or fixing leaking taps, many handymen are already adequately capable. Keep in mind that if you have a complicated repair or installation to be done, it’s still best to call on a licensed plumber or electrician.

Things to remember when hiring a handyman

To ensure that your job will be done properly, you should be very selective when hiring a handyman. It’s not enough that a tradie has offered you the lowest quote; you should make sure that the person is really capable of providing quality home repair and handyman services.

Here are a few things that you need to check before enlisting the help of a business:

  • Qualifications and experience. If you need a handyman to build cabinets or update your walls with a minor paint job, you have to make sure that they have done these jobs before. Although handymen can do different kinds of tasks, many of them still specialise in particular services. Have a look at their portfolio to get an idea on the types of jobs that they usually do. This will also show you the quality of their work.

  • Insurance. There’s no telling when an accident will happen, so it’s always best to be prepared for unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances. Ask your handyman if he has a public liability insurance. This will cover you from accidents that might arise due to their work.

  • Written contract. Ensure that everything about the job is put in black and white — from the price and mode of payment to the timeframe of the job and the supplier of materials. This prevents tricky situations wherein you could be taken advantage of.

  • Cost of services. It’s easy to get a quote via ServiceSeeking.com.au. Simply post your job on the site and businesses will start responding in a matter of hours. Make sure to compare all the quotes you get and find out what they include. Are they fixed or hourly rates? Do they include the prices of materials? Local handyman services typically cost around $30/hr. This may still vary depending on the difficulty of the job and some other factors. Provide specific details so that you can get accurate quotes.

  • Customer feedback. Consider what other customers think of their services. This is an easy way to know if you’re hiring a reliable handyman or not, if they can deliver high-standard work, and if they can finish jobs on time.
