The Handyman Can ♫ Help with Small Repairs

♫ “Who can help with small repairs Causing homeowners to pull their hair? Oh, the Handyman can” ♫

These aren’t quite the lyrics to the famous song in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, but you’ve got to hand it to your handyman. He or she might not bring you sweets like the Candy Man, but this person can bring you something just as good: sweet savings and peace of mind on the million small things that keep going wrong in your home or business.

What is a Handyman, Exactly?

A handyman is a helper who’s handy with small repairs and maintenance around a home or business. This person might be a do-it-yourselfer who picked up a thing or two over the years. They may also be a semi-skilled or licensed contractor who is a jack-of-all-trades. Professional electricians and plumbers also perform this type of work on the side. In short, you'll find them in every field at varied levels of skill and knowledge. Perhaps you have a friend you consider a handyman, or maybe it's a title you've picked up.

Increasingly, more homeowners are calling for assistance with small plumbing jobs, electrical work, and odd jobs around the house. Theories range for the reasons why, from homeowners no longer having time to a lack of interest. Some individuals believe they “lack the handyman gene” or would prefer to avoid unnecessary repair risks. No matter the reason, it's easy to find a professional handyman in Scranton to help with quick fixes and building maintenance for your home or business.

Examples of Handyman Work

Now that you know who qualifies as a handyman, how do you determine the type of work that falls under this category? A handyman will let you know if you’re asking for a service that’s more than it seems or out of their area of specialty, but here are examples of general handyman jobs:

  • A/C installation
  • Appliance installation & removal
  • Drywall repair
  • Minor electrical work (outlet replacement, lightbulb change)
  • Minor plumbing repair (sink pipe replacement, leaky pipe repairs)
  • Minor siding & roofing repair
  • Stair repair

You might find a handyman for any facet of building repair and maintenance.
