Handyman in Sengkang

About Sengkang

Sengkang is a planning area and residential town located in the North-East Region of Singapore. The town is the most populous in the region, being home to 232,100 residents in 2017. Sengkang shares boundaries with Seletar and Punggol in the north, Pasir Ris and Paya Lebar in the east, Hougang and Serangoon to the south, as well as Yishun and Ang Mo Kio to the west. 

Originally a fishing village, the area is undergoing rapid development under the ambition of the Housing and Development Board (HDB) to transform it into a fully mature housing estate. 

The name Sengkang means "prosperous harbour" in Chinese. The name comes from a road called Lorong Sengkang, off Lorong Buangkok. The area was formerly known as Kangkar (Gang Jiao 港脚) or "foot of the port" as there was once a fishing port located along Sungei Serangoon. 

Sengkang originated from the area once called Kangkar, named after the port and fishing village along Sungei Serangoon. By the mid-20th century, the area was home to several rubber, pepper, and pineapple plantations. At that time, the nearest public housing estate then was the Punggol Rural Centre located along Punggol Road. Sengkang was largely left alone until 1994, when an urban design team of ten from HDB began conceptualization for a new town in Sengkang. Sengkang was carved up into seven subzones that would house a total of 95,000 public and private housing units in the long term. 

The town's first apartment blocks (known locally as flats) at Rivervale were completed in 1997. By August 2001, about 33,700 dwelling units were completed. As of 31 March 2017, there are 65,981 HDB dwelling units in Sengkang.

So what is a Handyman?

handyman, also known as a handyperson or handyworker, is a person skilled at a wide range of repairs, typically around the home. These tasks include trade skills, repair work, maintenance work, are both interior and exterior, and are sometimes described as "side work", "odd jobs" or "fix-up tasks".

The services that a handyman can provide vary widely, and so do the rates for such services. The current market and the personal preferences of the handyman affect both of these greatly. Basically, a handyman is a jack-of-all-trades, an individual who is skilled at performing various tasks. Handymen usually take on jobs like minor home repairs and other construction tasks.

How big or small these tasks are, along with how experienced the handyman is will be what determines the rate that you will be paying. Some handymen will estimate how long a job will take and base their rate off that, or will offer a flat rate for the whole job. Paying a flat rate can be advantageous for you if your handyman gives you an honest estimate of how long the job takes.

The flat rate also protects you from complications that may arise that make the job take longer than expected. 

What is a Professional Handyman Company?

Most of the handyman prefer to do field work rather than being desk bound and managing the business. While many operate as an individual or a small team and registered as a sole proprietor, there aren’t many truly professional handymen company that are licensed and insured. It is easily to assume that handyman work seems simple, sometime a twist of fate can turn into disaster and can get out of control. Such as drilling through a conceal pipe or electrical wires. 

 the difference with a professional handyman company is that...

This incident can be prevented with the right use of equipment and know how. However, when disaster strike, a professional company will be able to handle such crisis whereby the individual cannot. Professional handyman company have many teams of technician with various core trade specialist such as carpenter, plumber and electrician.  Professional handyman company have more accountability, reliability and credential due to the licensed issued with stringent requirement by the relevant authorities such as HDB and BCA.

A professional handyman company is more organised, better equipt and better trained with constant updates on the current practices. In order to comply to the regulatory of the authority, the cost of a professional company operation gets higher compared to a sole proprietor. Not many wants to or are able to run a full pledge professional handyman company. Ultimately, engaging a Professional Handyman company will give you a peace of mind knowing that the job will be completed due to the solid support of the organisation and its capability to deliver as promised.
