Handyman in Simei
Simei is one of the five subzones of the Tampines planning area located in the eastern region of Singapore. It is bounded by the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), Upper Changi Road East and Bedok Park Connector. Measuring 225 ha in size, Simei makes up 11 percent of the total land area of Tampines New Town and is largely residential in nature. Public housing development in Simei began in 1984 and its first residents moved in 1986. As at 2015, it houses a population of 42,710 residents. Simei estate has a wide range of amenities including a hospital, primary to tertiary educational institutions, retail outlets and a community centre. While Simei is supported by its own commercial and shopping establishments, residents also tap on existing facilities available in the neighbouring Tampines town centre.
“Simei” (四美) means “four beauties” in Mandarin and the estate’s four main streets were originally named after the four great beauties of ancient China: Xishi, Diaochan, Guifei and Zhaojun. However, because Simei residents found it difficult to pronounce the hanyu pinyin street names, the Housing and Development Board (HDB) renamed them as Simei Streets 1, 2, 3 and 4 respectively in 1987. Wall murals depicting each of these four legendary beauties adorn the void decks of HDB blocks along these respective streets. The murals were designed and painted in late 1987 at a cost of S$800 each. Hexagonal and diamond-shaped motifs common in traditional Chinese architecture were also incorporated into some of the HDB block designs in the estate.
Construction work on the 110-hectare Simei public housing estate started in December 1984. The first 16 blocks of HDB flats comprising 6,120 units were scheduled for completion in late 1986. At least 4,592 flats in the estate were built using modern pre-fabrication methods.The initial batch of flats in the estate were built such that residents living on the higher floors had an almost unobstructed view of the eastern coastline.
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.
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.
