A handyman fills the void between a general contractor

  • A handyman fills the void between a general contractor and repairs down to $0.00. Most contractors do not want jobs below $50,000.00.

    The handyman will repair and renovate from $100.00 to $50,000.00 and more.

    The handyman will also do many of the jobs a general contractor does not know how to do. A general contractor can replace a toilet, a handyman can repair it.

    The general contractor can install a new door. The handyman can adjust it to work with a kiss fit to the weatherstripping so it will open and close easily.

    The general contractor can replace an entire bathroom tile and change out the tub and vanity. So can the handyman. However, the handyman will change only 20-30 tiles, if that’s all that is needed, whereas the general contractor wants to do the entire room.

    Handymen are vital to the renovation industry for the smaller jobs: filling holes in the wall, adjusting a door to operate, re-sheetrocking the ceiling when someone steps through, replacing 1 or 2 floor boards or deck boards.

    When you have a small repair or series of them, many people do not want to spend thousands of dollars for a general contractor. This is where the handyman shines. While the cost of doing these jobs may be $70.00 - $150.00 per hour, it’s still less than the general contractor. The work can be just as proficient, if not better for the handyman knows how each item was built and the best repair to do.

    A roofer will replace an entire roof. A handyman will perform a water test to fine the expected spot of leakage and fix that.

    A general contractor will repair a shower appearance by replacing the entire shower. A handyman will perform a water test and repair the spot of concern.

    Occasionally, the spot repair cost is the same as the entire replacement for we do not have X-ray vision to see the location in advance. Usually, the repairs costs are far less than the replacement.
