Why You Need a Handyman On Speed Dial

We all have important numbers on our phone for people that we may need one day, but do you have the number of a trusted handyman? I run an Austin Handyman service here in Texas and you would be surprised at the how many people call me for the first time, having never thought that they would need a handyman. There are so many things which handymen can help out with a round the home that it is really worth your while finding one that you trust and does work for a great price, and here are just a few reasons why you’ll be happy that you did.


If you have a plumbing or gas emergency, you will have to pay a huge fee for the engineer to come out and take a look at what is going on. Because of the fact that most handymen are locally based, they will be able to get to your home and your emergency sooner, and they can also assess if you need a particular gas or plumbing professional. Equally, us handyman aren’t bandits, and we always charge a fair price, generally cheaper than the ‘experts’.

No Job Too Small

I know that you often see the ‘no job too small’ sign on many handymen’s signs, but there really has never been a truer word spoken about this trade. We are on hand for all manner of issues in the home from painting and decorating, to putting up shelving, knocking down walls, gardening and fixing gadgets. You never know when you are going to need some assistance with something in the home, so it really makes sense to always have a handyman on speed dial.


One of the most common jobs which I am called in for, is to fix some DIY which has gone wrong. I understand that everyone likes to try and have a go at being creative in the home, but it doesn’t always work out like it should. IF you have a try at some DIY and it doesn’t work out, we will always be here to help out.


Another common reason why I am often called out is in fact not to repair anything, but rather to offer advice. I regularly get asked about gardening projects, small construction plans and a whole heap of other projects which people are curious about. The thing is that calling in a registered professional for advice, will end up costing a lot of money, but this is not the case with us handymen, and we’ll always be more than happy to assist in any way that we can.


Most handymen have a background in construction or engineering, which is why we all have such an eye for detail and quality. What this means for you, is that you can count on work which is high quality and most importantly, durable.

Look up some local handymen and see what they are all about, pick one and get them on your speed dial!
