What work can Handyman Services companies complete?
The kind of work a handyman can do depends on several factors. One major factor is the size and sophistication of the contractor. Some handyman services companies are small mom and pop kind of operations who are the typical jack-of-all-trades that many people think of upon hearing the word 'handyman'. These kinds of service providers have a combination of skills but are not equipped to do more complex, larger projects. On the other end of the spectrum are remodeling companies that do all manner of remodeling projects such as bathroom remodeling, kitchen remodeling, or basement remodeling, but offer handyman service as a cheaper option for projects that do not require design or architectural elements. These companies can have large crews that are able to complete larger projects, and typically charge more for the higher expertise. There are also service providers in between, medium sized companies that focus on small and medium sized projects, and are able to hire on subcontractors but also employ work with multifaceted skills for the smaller jobs.
Another aspect is licensing. Depending on the job, it's cost, and size the tradesperson completing the work may be required to be licensed. Unlicensed handyman services companies are limited in what they can do. For example there are limits to the amount of HVAC, plumbing, and electrical work many of the can do because of licensure. Work in many of traditional trades is required to be done by licensed contractors in many states. Here in Florida for example, an unlicensed handyman company can install flooring, perform sealcoating (like paver sealcoating), paint home interiors and exteriors, drywall repair and basic yard work. To do more specialized work a general contractor or residential contractor's license is required and a licensed plumber or electrician must complete that kind of work.
Handyman services companies like ours that are fully licensed and only work with subcontractors that hold licenses for work that requires it, are not limited in the work they can do. Our company specifically focuses on small and medium repair, renovation, and maitencene jobs. We are as comfortable helping a home owner weatherize their home, minor carpentry, door repair, cabinet installation, paining, tilling, or window repair as we are with replacing plumbing pipes, installing light switches and outlets or upgrading wiring for a renovation, installing outlets,
What are Handyman Services?
A professional handyman is a expert who is skilled in a myriad of home repair jobs including domestic repairs and small renovations. Comprehensive handyman services cover three areas home maintenance, home repair, and home renovation. Handyman services are also called home improvement services. Full service handyman services companies can also act as general contractors for larger more complex jobs or jobs that require specific expert subcontractors plumbers or electricians.
Home maintenance refers to the inspections, cleaning, replacements, adjustments that have to be done regularly. Home maintenance is important to keep a home looking good and important systems functioning as they should. Neglecting it can lead to the the need for repairs and some of which could be emergency repairs. Handyman services companies typically work on a wide range of maintenance projects like power washing the exterior of homes including siding and walkways, duct cleaning, floor polishing and interior and exterior painting, or even bathtub reglazing. Home repairs refers to the restoration to a sound or good state of non-functioning or sub-optimally functioning systems and areas of a home's interior, like electrical, pluming and heat and cooling systems, bathrooms and kitchens, and exterior, like masonry, concrete, roofing and siding, and asphalt paving. Handyman services companies commonly do plumbing, flooring (including epoxy flooring, hardwood, and laminate), drywall, decks and patio, lighting, and gutter service work. Home renovation refers to the process of upgrading, improving or renewing outdated or damaged structures and systems. Handyman services companies typically upgrade and renovate bathrooms and kitchens and finish basements and attics.
How are Handyman Services Priced?
A few things go into pricing handyman services. One thing is cost of travel. If there is a long distance between the worksite and where the handyman services company is located, an additional charge may be levied for travel. Another thing is the tools needed for the job. If for some reason special tools have to be rented for a job there may be a service fee levied for that as well. Generally speaking, handyman services are charged hourly with a minimum on the amount of hours billed. Some small or routine jobs may be charged at a flat rate. Another big factor in price is the cost of materials. If materials have to be purchased by the company there is usually a markup or service charge. Most companies are able to get started with whatever materials are available if the customer wants to purchase them themselves. The reasoning for a surcharge for materials purchase is that it takes the company time to buy the materials. Since the time spent eventuates in work for the client as it's apart of the client's job, these hours are 'billable'.
How do Handyman Companies Charge for Materials?
The cost of materials can be handled in two ways. They can be purchased by the customer upfront based on the specifications of the company or the handyman company can select and buy the materials have them delivered to the site or bring them. If the company purchases the materials for you there is an additional fee; if the customer purchases the materials themselves obviously this fee is not incurred. Payment is usually due on completion of the project.

HandyMan Vs Remodeling Service
In the broadest terms, there is really no sharp distinction between handyman services and remodeling. Both kinds of companies complete just about every home repair that may be needed. Both companies come in large and small varieties, with just a few or even one employee or several dozen. Both cover a region, single area or have national extension. Each are capable of doing excellent work on your home or business, and the opposite is also true. The name of the company is no guarantee for quality. The same goes for price, neither kind of company is necessarily lower or higher priced for a given service. Both also employ the same basic model to get work done. There will be a core group of contractors with general competencies and capabilities, common projects worked on and approaches. Any other work will be sub-contracted and overseen by a general contractor.
That said there are associations with each term, even if they are not of necessity borne out in reality. For example, handyman general carries the connotation of a contractor who specializes in smaller or simpler jobs. These are the kinds of jobs that are too small or specific to be worth the time a a specialist. Another thing people look to handymen for is ongoing maitencene for a building. A lot of landlords and business employ these kinds of companies for that reason.
Remodeling companies are associated with larger, more complex jobs, often those including multiple different kinds of subcontractors and services. Take bathroom remodeling for example. This job could include changes to plumbing, flooring, lighting, wiring, paint and drywall. Besides that the contracting party, may be concerned with form as well as function. A remodeler might have a designer or architect on staff or contract with one.
