Need a Helping Hand? Hire a Handyman

Do you have a home improvement project that you need help with? Perhaps, your fence is in need of fresh, new paint? Or maybe you need help setting up your new flat screen TV? For these types of random jobs, the best person to call on is a handyman.

Handymen are one of the most in demand tradies today. They have vast skills, knowledge, and experience in a wide array of services such as:

Carpentry

Your handyman specialist can handle small carpentry jobs such as installing and repairing baseboards and crown mouldings and building custom cabinets, shelves, and bookcases. They also offer flat pack kitchen and furniture assembly services.

Painting

Handymen can easily handle small painting jobs around the house. If you want to give your house a quick makeover, local handymen can easily give the walls and ceilings a fresh coat of paint. They can also sand, strip, and stain wooden furniture, patios, and decks.

Cleaning

Handymen are not only handy with screwdrivers, saws, and hammers. They can also be hired to do some cleaning work around the house. After a renovation or construction project, they can clean up the place and remove all the leftover debris. They also clean gutters, fireplaces, garages, and outdoor areas such as the pool and the driveway.

Gardening

Professional handymen are also proficient in garden services. They mow lawns, do yard cleanups, prune the bushes, and trim the hedges. They also install and repair sprinkler systems.

Simple electrical and plumbing

It is always best to hire a qualified and licensed plumber and electrician for plumbing and electrical work due to the sensitive nature of the job. However, something as basic as changing a lightbulb or showerhead are tasks that any experienced handyman can definitely handle. For more complex plumbing or electrical installation and repairs, always go with an expert.

Odd jobs

There are plenty of other random things that a handyman can do for you such as hanging paintings or mirrors and mounting flat screen TVs on your walls. They can replace broken window panes, fix jammed door knobs, and handle drywall repair jobs.

Cost of hiring a professional handyman service

There are several factors that determine handyman rates. Some businesses charge by the hour while some would give a flat rate based on the scope of the job. Hiring a handyman is more economical than hiring different tradies for every little job. Aside from that, many contractors won’t accept small jobs such replacing a few broken tiles. So if you are on the lookout for home maintenance for less, a handyman is your best bet. According to ServiceSeeking’s latest data, the average cost of hiring a handyman is between $45 per hour to $50 per hour. But of course these figures may vary depending on the following factors:

Expertise

In general, the more skilled they are, the higher their rates are. If you are on a tight budget and the job is simple enough, such as doing some lawn mowing and yard work, then it’s safe to hire a rookie. However, for a more complicated task such as window replacement and other carpentry work, you are better off hiring an experienced handyman.

Location

Handyman service rates also vary depending on the state and territory that you live in. This is usually affected by the law of supply and demand. If there are more handymen looking for jobs, chances are prices will become more competitive which gives customers more value for their money.

Type of job

For handymen who charge a flat fee, the size and the type of the job play an important role. Minor repairs and home improvement projects such as small paint jobs will generally cost lower compared to installing shelves and cabinets in the kitchen.

Licence and insurance

Be wary of cheap handyman services that offer extremely low rates. There is a big chance that they are not licensed and insured to offer handyman services.

Overhead costs

Handymen services is a business which means your handyman will include overhead costs in their quotes such as travel expenses and cost of materials and the use of their equipment.

Hiring a handyman who can do multiple jobs in one day can save you a lot of time and money. Here are some feedback from customers who have hired handymen in the past:

"Nylie did a great job replacing our weather boards. It wasn't a straight-forward job and he did it with ease. He and his staff are very professional, easy to communicate with, shows up when he says he will. He absolutely knows what he's doing , easy to work with and no nonsense. Highly recommend Nyle and his team." - Graeme from Marrickville South, NSW

"Professional, smart and prompt - thank you Allan for resolving my roofing problem, which if left longer could have resulted in a complete rebuild. You've delivered great value for money and given me peace of mind in our renewed roof. Your team were clean, quiet and respectful in performing the work and accommodating my family needs (I've a 6 month and 3.5 year old). I'm grateful to have run into you and will remain in touch for my future construction needs." - William

"Chris was hired to do a general back garden cleanup and he went above and beyond in a really efficient amount of time. The garden was left looking amazing and he even cleaned up weeds on our front porch. Very impressed with his service and would totally recommend him to anyone. I look forward to utilising his services again." - Darren form Collingwood North, VIC

If you have some house repair work that needs to be done or if you’re looking for someone to help you with a home improvement project such as painting the porch, you have come to the right place.
