What is a "handyman service?"

by Joyce Herr 11/03/2022

When many homeowners need help with a household task that doesn’t require specific licenses or expertise, they often hire a worker or “handyman” service. These repair professionals have a wide range of skills and knowledge for practical maintenance and installation around the home. 

From “odd jobs” to substantial maintenance and repair work, there are service professionals available to help with a plethora of projects.

Drywall repair & installation

Help with drywall, whether during a home remodeling project or following water damage repair, is a common reason to hire “handyman” services. Many repair and maintenance professionals have experience and equipment necessary to handle every step of a drywall installation or repair job.

Fixture replacements

Your home is full of fixtures that might eventually need repair or replacement due to natural wear and tear. Some examples include faucets, lights and kitchen cabinets. While many of these tasks are possible without professional help, even savvy DIY enthusiasts can benefit from hiring an expert with plenty of experience and all the tools.

Appliance repair

Often, it’s much more cost-effective to repair a malfunctioning appliance than to replace it. However, even with online tutorials and commercial repair guides, the task is not always easy. Hiring somebody with general knowledge of major appliances - big and small - can save you time and money on your home maintenance. 

Painting

Even homeowners who enjoy painting can’t deny how much easier it is with somebody else there to help. Both interior and exterior painting jobs are commonly included among “handyman” services due to the massive amount of time a professional can help you save.

These are some popular services you might want to hire a professional repair or maintenance worker for. If these or any other home improvement tasks are on your to-do list, check your local options for experienced maintenance specialists.
