Hire a handyman for holiday help

Hire a handyman for holiday help

If you’re expecting guests for the holidays, now is the time to fix those annoying problems around the house so you don’t have to explain them to your friends and family.

Hiring a Chicago handyman to tackle small household projects can be a cheap and efficient way to fix problems in the home. Many handymen are highly killed in a variety of disciplines and can often take on multiple projects in a single day.

For example, if you wanted to have a light fixture installed above your kitchen table, a lock changed on the front door and a hole repaired in your drywall, you could hire three different service providers who would all charge a fee to come to your house, or you could hire a handyman and knock out all three issues in the same day.

Here are a few projects that are perfect for a handyman:

Minor electrical repairs. Many handymen have electrical experience and can perform minor electrical jobs like installing light fixtures and repairing broken light switches. A handyman could easily fix that broken chandelier above your dining room table or install a dimmer switch to add mood to the room.

Exterior repairs. A handyman can fix broken gutters or install gutter guards, repair areas where siding has been damaged, apply a fresh coat of paint or install a new mailbox. 

Drywall repair. Do you really feel like explaining to your relatives why there is a giant gaping hole in your living room wall? A handyman can patch holes in drywall no matter how big or small they are, and even sand them down and repaint your wall afterward.

Complete unfinished projects. Maybe you did some repairs earlier in the year and never had a chance to finish them. Let a professional handyman finish those projects so you have time to relax.
