What Does a Handyman Do?

Companies that provide handyman services specialize in a broad set of home improvement skills. A handyman does it all, from small repairs and installations to larger projects such as building decks or updating bathrooms and, conveniently, they are often more than willing to complete several different types of jobs in a single visit. Also, due to their extensive experience and the very specific—and, hopefully, unproblematic—nature of the work, many handyman contractors can provide estimates for simple projects over the phone or online and get to work right away.

Handyman contractors have a few limitations—for example, they may not be certified gasfitters or experts at troubleshooting heat pumps—but for a majority of household projects, they’re an effective, efficient choice.
