A home repair handyman is a person who is skilled in several home repair and maintenance works. Most handymen do not have a specific area of specialization. They are knowledgeable in numerous home repair and maintenance tasks in residential and commercial settings.
Although a handyman is a jack of all trades, he should have explicit expertise in areas such as plumbing, electrical repairs, fixtures installation, and painting which are needed to keep a home or building running. The most common job that a handyman is contracted for includes garbage disposal replacement in the sink, the installation of a faucet fixture, or unclogging a blocked sink or toilet.
A handyman also often gets drywall installation requests for homeowners. He makes drywall installations for aesthetic purposes or to repair water damage, repair drywall hanging, and rodent damage. A handyman also gets requests to remove leaves and other debris from gutter drains. While at it, they also inspect the roof for damages and fix them where necessary.
