Every home-owner has been there: the list of minor jobs is growing and you just can’t find time to tackle them. As all those small jobs add up, they can cause stress as you struggle to find the time and inclination to do the job well. Sometimes, the best option is to employ a handyman. With their broad range of expertise, not to mention the right tools, a handyman will get the jobs done, leaving you to enjoy your niggle-free home. At Trust A Trader, we know how hard it can be to find a trader you can rely on, every time. We take a look at why you should choose a handyman and the jobs he (or she) can do – for a simple life.
Why Employ A Handyman?
1 – Most handymen charge by the hour. They are also likely to get the job done quickly, which means they will get lots of small jobs done in the time it would probably take you to complete the first one!
2 – A professional handyman has the tools, experience and skills to do the job properly. This means that you won’t be putting you or your property at risk – no risk of falling through a ladder, putting a nail through a pipe, or spending an hour hanging a heavy mirror, only for it to fall down 6 months later.
3 – You’re off the hook! Think of all those hours you have spent collating the list of jobs you need to do: fix that leak, repair a light fitting, filling annoying holes in the hallway, touch up scuffed paintwork, or re-hanging a door. When you get a handyman in, you can get the list done in one fell swoop, with complete peace of mind.
Top Jobs For Your Handyman
Gutter cleaning – always on the to-do list and rarely done, making sure your gutter is clean and clear can save you money in the long-run. A reliable handyman will have the skills and equipment to get the job done quickly and safely.
Paint touch-ups – small painting jobs and hole-filling tend to end up at the bottom of your list of priorities. A handyman can fill, sand and paint quickly and tidily, making your home as good as new.
Hanging paintings, pictures and hooks – Tired of having badly hung pictures or, even worse, beautiful pictures propped up, waiting for the day that you have time to hang them? From coat racks to paintings and mirrors, a handyman can get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Despite their broad range of skills, hourly rates for handymen are usually very reasonable. When you consider the amount of time you spend worrying about the jobs you need to fix, and the time it would take you, getting a handyman could well be something you can’t afford not to do. Be warned: a good local handyman is worth their weight in gold; once you have found one, their number will never be far away!
