HandyMan Service, Repairing the Wasatch FrontWhat is the difference between a handyman Service and a licensed contractor? The clearest answer I can give is that a Handyman is not defined as having a “specific” skill. A licensed contractor on the other hand generally has a specific skill, such as carpentry, plumbing, electrical, painting, etc. Handymen generally handle a wide range of other repair and maintenance jobs. And because they don’t pay the costs of licenses and union fees, handymen often charge less than many contractors.A licensed contractor is not likely to offer the services that aHandyman does. For instance the list below is an example of some of the jobs that I will do for a set fee, none of which are listed as licensable by the state according to the law.Replace Toilet SeatsRepair old wooden gatesHang or remove Christmas lightsWash windowsClean and organize a garage, attic or cellarClean GuttersPaint and/or repair lawn furniturePressure wash concreteHang pictures/mirrorsAssemble childrens toysAssemble boxed furnitureRefinish furnitureRepair chair rungsClean and scrub a hot tubPlant trees, bushes, shrubs or other plantsHang towel racks, light fixtures and shelvingInstall mini-blinds and vertical blindsHowever, because I am accomplished in many things, I can also perform more involved services.
