You Are A Landlord
As a good landlord you want to keep your maintenance costs as affordable as possible. It is important also to keep the property in good condition to maximise the rental potential. But repairs and maintenance are inevitable and as the owner/landlord you are required by law to ensure the property is fit to live in and in a good state of repair. This is when you need to have a reliable handyman who can do all the jobs around the property. From plastering and painting damaged walls, repairing the fences and gates through to general garden maintenance. A good handyman can come to the rescue when you need to maintain your property for ongoing tenancy or clean up and repair the property and garden for a new renter.
You Have No Skills With Tools
There is nothing to be ashamed of if you don’t know one end of a hammer from the other or what to do to fix a broken cupboard. There are people out there who do know these things and they enjoy fixing them. The name handyman says it all. A good handyman can paint and plaster, weld, carpentry work, garden clean ups, repair decks, install kitchen cupboards and so much more. As a rule no job is too small for a good handyman. They will do all the things you don’t have the skills for.
Work Around The House Can Be Dangerous
Climbing a ladder to clean the gutters results in more injuries than any other home handyman activities. In fact 40% of DIY deaths are due to falls from a ladder or roof. And the older you get the more likely you are to fall, the age group of 65 – 74 were more likely to present at the emergency department for a fall from a ladder. Of those falls, 81% will occur to men. Mowing the lawn is equally dangerous, annually around 60 people lose a toe or finger to a lawnmower. To avoid any injury, employ someone who does these sorts of things for a living. A good handyman will save you time and injury
Handymen Do The Jobs You Hate
Owning a property can mean doing lots of chores around the place. Many of these tasks are not enjoyable. Repainting the windows, mowing large areas of lawn, repairing fences or fixing holes in walls. These are all tasks that you can get someone else to do so you can focus on the jobs you do enjoy. Time is too short to take on a task that someone else can do for you, and probably do it better because they do it all the time.
You Are Short On Time
Even if you do have the skills to do repairs around the home and you do actually enjoy doing these things the reality is that we are often time poor. It is more time and cost effective to get someone else to do the job in one day rather than you taking 4 weekends to get it done. Between the multiple sporting activities and the grocery shopping on a weekend there is often very little time to just relax if you then have to finish painting the bathroom, fix the sprinkler system in the back yard and patch up the hole in the wall. An experienced handyman can get all these jobs done properly in a timely manner.
Now is the time to find a reliable handyman to help make your life easier.
