Handymen receive their moniker from the fact that they can do many things and are, therefore, quite “handy” to have around. This puts handyman services in demand in many areas, with some services being more popular than others with busy homeowners. Handyman business owners can use this information to help plan the services they will provide and make sure they have the right tools and supplies on hand.

In this handy article, we’ll go through the most often requested handyman jobs, as well as what you’ll need to do the work correctly. Let’s get started!

1. Plumbing

Plumbing is a highly in-demand service. Many homeowners are scared off by the mysterious inner workings of a toilet or bathroom sink, and they will likely seek a professional to do plumbing repairs and maintenance.

Most small plumbing repairs, such as installing a new faucet fixture, unclogging a toilet, or re-piping, may be handled by a regular handyman. However, handymen located in most states (except for Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Pennsylvania, and Wyoming) need a plumber’s licence to work on bigger projects. If you are hired by a homeowner to re-pipe their entire house, you may be legally compelled to employ a subcontracting plumber to supervise the work.

2. Drywall installation

Drywall installation is one of the most regularly requested handyman jobs, whether for home remodelling or to repair water damage. Because there are so many individuals who want drywall installation, some handymen even specialize in drywalling alone.

Almost everything linked to drywall repair and finishing can be done by handymen pros, including:

  • Settlement cracks
  • Wear and tear
  • Moisture damage
  • Damage from rodents
  • Painting and final touches
  • Drywall anchor holes
  • Drywall hanging
  • Drywall plastering

3. Cleaning and repairing gutters

Many homeowners are afraid of heights or don’t trust their (or their partner’s) ladder-bracing skills. This creates a great opportunity for your handyman business, as cleaning gutters and drains is a regular home maintenance service that you can provide to customers. You can also utilize your time up in the eaves to check the roof and recommend replacing broken shingles or larger roof repairs. This could help homeowners avoid bigger disasters and potentially save money down the road.

4. Replacing fixtures

Fixtures and fittings will eventually wear out or fall out of style. Cabinets, lighting fixtures, and kitchen faucets may need to be replaced or updated at some point. Because the great majority of fixture replacement operations don’t require a licence, they’re excellent jobs for the seasoned handyman. While these can be simple DIY projects, many homeowners still prefer to hire a professional to save themselves time and to ensure the job’s done right.

5. Putting down tiles

Tile installation is just as much of an art as it is a skill. As a handyman, you may understand how to do a tiling project flawlessly. This involves a variety of skills, including measuring the floor area to ensure that the tiles fit perfectly, laying and trimming tiles to avoid wasted space or crooked patterns. Homeowners may also hire you to replace broken bathroom or kitchen tiles, rather than replace the entire set.

6. Painting

Interior and exterior painting is one of the most typical handyman jobs requested. This is another job that may seem simple but may prove too time-consuming or detailed for the average homeowner. Handymen are often better prepared to do the job since you likely have all the necessary materials, such as paint rollers, paintbrushes, drop cloths, paint, furniture coverings, masking tape, and ladders.

Because painting is such a popular handyman job, you may decide to specialise in it. This might include painting entire rooms or building exteriors, as well as touching up walls, shutters, trim, and other parts of homes that may need a small or quick refresh.

Don’t forget to check your handyman’s insurance

Before you take on your first customer, you may want to protect your business with General Liability insurance. These policies can shield you against third-party claims of property damage or injury.

Even if you are the definition of professional, accidents can still happen. If you accidentally harm a customer or their property, your General Liability insurance will assist with compensating the client for related financial losses. This could potentially save your small business thousands of dollars, protecting your business and personal finances and helping you stay in business.

Handymen across the country are comparing General Liability insurance with BizInsure. We make it quick and simple to get covered online, so you can get back to the work you do best! Learn more about Insurance for Handymen and compare quotes today.
