What do handyman services include?

Handymen can tackle a wide range of indoor and outdoor home DIY tasks. Here are some tasks you might ask a local handyman near you to pop round and help with:

General handyman services

Got a list as long as your arm of odd jobs that need a handyman to complete? Hire general labour handymen to get several things done at once. They can help with pulling up carpet, hanging doors, fixing broken appliances, garden work, and more. 

Indoor installations and repairs 

A local handyman can help install newly bought homewares or fix broken possessions (so you can hopefully save some money). For example, they can help with DIY blind installation and repairs, fitting and repairing the kitchen sink, fitting pet doors, hanging shower screens, and even wallpapering. They’ll get it done using their own specialist tools and will let you know if you need to provide or pay for any additional materials.

Outdoor installations and repairs 

Your outdoor area and belongings have to deal with a lot. So help them withstand whatever nature (or your family) throws at them for longer by getting them professionally installed or repaired. Find a handyman who can help with garden shed installation, BBQ repair, fitting outdoor blinds, window repairs, fixing your mower, putting up your clothesline, and even repairing your kids’ trampoline.    

Bricklaying and building work

You can hire a handyman near you with bricklaying and building experience to help build garden walls, repair loose brickwork, install MDF, or even construct a chicken coop. When getting quotes from tradesmen, mention if you’ve got the building materials already, or if you’d like them to supply the materials as part of the job.   

Wall hanging

From pictures and TVs to bike racks and mirrors - if you need help with wall mounting, get a DIY handyman to fit your furnishings securely and make sure they’re level. Most handymen will bring their own tools, but you may need to supply extra materials such as screws, picture wire, or mounts for heavier electrical items like TVs and driers. 

Furniture repair

When booking a handyman for furniture repair, you’ll need to be specific about the furniture that needs fixing. For example, handymen with carpentry experience may better if it’s your wooden coffee table, wardrobe, or sofa bed that need repairing. Meanwhile, a handyman with electrical experience may be right for any ceiling fan or digital fitness equipment fixes. That’ll ensure you get the best handyman near you for the job, plus the right tools to get it done.

Hi, we are looking for a professional painter-decorator and handyman who can: 1. Fix the leaks in the garden-facing walls of two basement bedrooms, plus the adjoining corridor. 2.

Melvin and his colleague Rohan were superstars. They fixed severe leaks in our basement rooms and corridor; repainted and redecorated our basement rooms; de-weeded the backyard; addressed the systemic weaknesses of our patio; jet washed our patio; fixed numerous electric appliances including a bathroom extractor, a lamp stand and the chandeliers; fixed new doorknobs and shower brackets; and repainted the top-floor bathroom. Although it might sound odd if they themselves were to say they can carry out the work of electricians, painters, decorators and fitters, I can vouch for the fact they are all of the above and more, and indeed they did do an excellent job. We plan to work with Melvin and Rohan for years to come. An excellent duo that can fix the most challenging problems quickly, efficiently and professionally, while being friendly and trustworthy as people.

Internal door installation & mounting of two shelves

£40

Repairs, painting and cleaning

£400

Kensington, Greater London, W8

22nd Oct 2022

I have the following tasks: 1. We have converted a shed into a room for bicycles. The room has been painted already, and a new lock has been added to the door. However, one side of the door needs to be sanded to it shuts, and then the door needs to be painted black. Also a bicycle rack needs to be added. 2. The three adjacent shed doors need to be painted black as well, and one of the doors has fallen off so it needs to be fixed. 3. One of the bedrooms has a wooden door that needs to be painted white and a staircase (10 steps) with wooden planks that need to be painted white too. 4. The bedroom needs to be cleared and cleaned as it has just been done up and still has paint on the wooden floor. 5. The little entryway to the bedroom needs to be painted cream, and a curtain pole installed. 6. We have hung a mantel mirror on the wall, but it is too high. We need to hang it just a couple of inches lower so it still sits on the mantel piece. 7. A cupboard needs to be taken out from the second floor and disposed. It is very important the work is done between 8 am and 5 pm and it is done on time. If the work is done well and on time (timekeeping is very important to us), then we will be providing a new tranche of work to the same supplier shortly, so it would be the start of an ongoing relationship. - Due date: Before Sunday, 23 October 2022
