A handyman can be very helpful around the house or office space, they can help you with all the little jobs that aren’t important enough for you to tackle yourself, but still need to be completed nonetheless. There are many jobs they can help you with everything from assembling furniture, right through to cleaning out the gutters.

Take a look below at some of the most common jobs a local handyman can assist with:

1. Assembling Furniture

With the rise of IKEA and flat pack furniture, this task has become one of the most common. IKEA furniture is certainly cheaper than most, however there is a catch – it comes in flat pack form. And who has the time to spend hours assembling the flat pack only to be left with an extra screw at the end?

Your local handyman that’s who! They understand how flat packs work and have probably put one similar to yours together before (or even the exact one). No more attempting to understand what the instructions are trying to say.

2. Re-Touch of Paint

Got any chips, scratches or marks on the walls? Little paint touch ups are a very common job for a hired helper. This is because most of the time small paint jobs will not completed by professional painters (mostly due to the fact it is not worth their time).

A re-touch of paint, however, is certainly something that is best left to someone who has at least a bit of knowledge and skills on how to paint. No one likes dodgy paintwork; it will stick out like a sore thumb!

3. Clearing Gutters

Clearing gutters is a popular task because many individuals do not have the means necessary to reach high places. To clear the gutter, a ladder is needed, as well as a flat and stable ground to ensure the ladder is safe and will not fall over with you on it.

Local handymen have the skills necessary to properly (and safely) remove leaves, sticks etc. from the gutter. Some will even come with their own equipment (i.e. ladder, gloves, buckets) if you are unable to provide them.

4. Hanging Pictures and Artwork

While this may seem like a simple task, it can still go wrong pretty fast – leaving holes and damage to walls (and potentially even the picture or artwork). This is why it is such a common task for a hired professional to undertake.

Factors that need to be taken into consideration when hanging items are; the weight of the item, height position on wall, location in home or office etc. While you may be able to do some of these tasks, a professional will ensure it is done in a expert manner, and it won’t fall off the wall.
