HANDYMAN services have been around for a long time and it continues to grow in popularity.

The average industry grown for handymen in Australia has been around 0.9 per cent per year, according to Ibis World Research and is predicted to only increase further over the next few years.


So, what is a handyman and what do they do?

1. What is a handyman

As the name implies, a handyman is someone who is “handy”. They have a broad understanding of how to install, fix repair or maintain things around a house and can often perform a variety of tasks.

2. What tasks can a handyman do

A handyman can do a variety of tasks such as small home maintenance and repairs, curtain or blind installation, painting, installing appliances, putting together flat-pack furniture, sanding and refinishing decks or other timber structures, hanging pictures or mirrors even fixing fences and gutter cleaning.
A good handyman has general skills in several areas to be able to complete each task with the different skills required.

Sometimes handymen are tasked to do simple electrical, carpentry or plumbing tasks such as installing light fixtures, changing washers, clearing blocked drains or window/floor restoration. These must be general simple tasks and not to the scale of a professional plumber or electrician.

3. What they can’t do

Handymen don’t usually have any professional licenses like plumbing and or electrical. For any complex and specialised jobs, a licenced professional will need to be called.
