So what is a Handyman?
A 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.
