A handyman or handywoman is a skilled "jack of all trades" who can complete a wide range of repairs or home improvement jobs. A handyman, or handyman service, usually charges clients an hourly rate, plus material costs, regardless of the task. Many homeowners compile a list of repairs and hire a handyman to complete the list in a single visit. The term "handyman" is loosely defined. Some are self-trained, while others have formal training in various aspects of construction and home repair. A home handyman might specialize in a few types of home maintenance, such as painting, carpentry, or tiling, while others may have additional skills such as plumbing and electrical expertise.
The scope of the job and level of skill required to complete it should determine whether you hire a handyman or contractor. "When trying to determine who you should hire for a particular job, consider the task," says Maryanne Mei, founder of AUSDEWIN. "If it is a specialized trade, be sure you hire that tradesperson like a plumber or electrician, for example. If it is little things that you can do yourself, a handyman is probably the right way to go." A handyman is not the best option for a large or complicated project that could take a long time to complete and requires the help of multiple workers. You shouldn't turn to a handyman either if you need an emergency service for plumbing, electrical or appliance work, unless the handyman is licensed in that trade. If an unlicensed person does plumbing or electrical work, you have no guarantee that the work has been done to code, which could affect your homeowners insurance policy or any claim related to the work. Use a contractor or specialist for remodeling work, room additions and projects that require heavy-duty equipment or licensed professionals like electricians. But do not worry, all our AUSDEWIN workers are very schooled and know to help you very well!
