You should be able to ask your handyman to help with everything from carpentry to electricity to plumbing. Having a handyman means that you have help around the house and back or front yard with things that need a quick but accurate fix. You should have equipment in storage along with materials.


Here are some of the things that you can ask a handyman to do:

A Simple Kitchen Cupboard Door:

You have a cupboard door that has lost a hinge and it just keeps swing in that one hinge every time you open it. It bothers you a lot. Ask the handyman in your employ to repair that door by replacing the broken hinge and recovering the original look of the door in its setting.

A Garage Door:

You have a garage door that goes up halfway and you have trouble getting your car in and out of your garage. You can ask the handyman to repair that door by changing the cable on the system of the garage door gears. This would allow you easy access to your garage without the stress of a door that will only stop halfway.

Your Bathroom Décor:

You would like to change the décor of your bathroom. You can ask the handyman to put in the few changes that you would like. You may want a fancy mirror in a new place, curtains beside a backdrop, a new arrangement of the shelves in the bathroom and a few other things like those can be done by a handyman.

The Wet Kitchen:

You come home from work and your kitchen faucet has been pouring water all day in your kitchen. Call your handyman right away. He can make a few changes with the use of a snake or some liquid poured down the drain that will solve that problem right away. He can easily help you to prevent further damage to your kitchen floor preventing water damage in any other room.

Backyard Sanctuary:

Your backyard looks really empty and so dark and you want a change. Go shopping for a few pieces of furniture and call your handyman. Work out a plan with him to make the changes to a specified area nearest to your house. Ask him to plant some flowers and shrubs in planters, lay grass turf the size of a patio and to arrange the furniture in a welcoming way. You will then have an after work sanctuary for your family. It can also be used for a weekend getaway at home.


Christmas is coming and you have decided that you want to change the colour of the inside of your home. You handyman can help you to create a new look in a few days. Buy the necessary plastic covering to protect your furniture and go dreaming. Discuss with you family members and pick out your colours. Explain the effect needed to you handyman and let him paint a new look for you.


You just bought a new set of light fixtures which will create a different atmosphere in your home. Call the handyman and he will make the changes. He can take out the old lighting system and replace them with your new ones giving you the desired atmosphere. Imagine doing your reading by night with soft lights that bring a glow to the ceiling rather that a bright hot light into the room.
All of the above changes need not cost you a pretty penny. I am sure that you are in the habit of keeping tools and spare parts in storage at home for emergencies. The shopping can be done at low cost and on Black Friday sales in America. So go ahead and call your handyman. If you need to get it done your handyman should be able to help you do it.
