A handyman is a person skilled at a wide range of home repairs, maintenance and improvement projects. They can be hired to take care of those tasks you label as ‘odd-jobs’ around the house like sealing windows, replacing your faucets, siding repair or even working on a small home renovation.

Most homeowners feel like that list of odd jobs and repair tasks are constantly building up. If you are not much of a do-it-yourselfer, or if you simply don’t have the time to take care of these projects, then hiring a handyman is a good option.

A handyman, or handywoman, can take care of a range of minor tasks including painting, drywall repair, minor plumbing or electrical work and appliance installation. They can also tackle bigger jobs like window and door installation, deck and fence building and other larger construction jobs. In most cases, a handyman in Edmonton can provide home renovation services too.

The main benefit to hiring a handyman services company is to save yourself the time and headache of doing all of those jobs yourself. They are also highly-skilled professionals, so you are likely to achieve better results than if you did it yourself. Since they are skilled at many things, these jacks-of-all-trades can tackle a wide variety of home repair and maintenance projects in one day. Instead of having to call in and pay a plumber, painter and window installer separately, you can have these projects dealt with more efficiently with just one company.

A handyman company is usually less expensive than general contractors or other trade companies. They have a much lower overhead and less staff to pay. They can also allow you to purchase your own materials so you will never be paying a mark up on supplies. These factors combine to make hiring a handyman a smart and cost-effective solution for your home improvements, repairs and maintenance needs.
