Guide To Using A Christchurch Handyman

Christchurch handymen are continually hot in demand because of the large range of skills and experience they offer their clients.  Able to do multiple jobs from a wide variety of trades, handymen have a great reputation as being willing to put their hand to work doing all the small jobs which larger trade companies don’t want to do. This makes them incredibly popular with homeowners and landlords throughout Canterbury.

Why Hire A Handyman?

DIY; us Kiwis are famous for it, with some saying it’s even in our blood. Yet as homeowners and landlords we realise that time is a precious and something many of us don’t have a lot of in our busy lives. While it is satisfying to tell our mates we tackled certain jobs during the weekend over coffee at work on Monday, in reality we also want to spend our leisure time doing the things we want to do, such as playing sport, shopping or even going to the beach.

Hiring a handyman to finish a list of small jobs you want done is a smart decision. Not only will it give you your free time back, but they will do the work faster and more professionally that you could.

Services Provided By Christchurch Handymen

With the large number of handymen available within our region, the range of skills they offer is enormous. As they are Jack-of-all-trades, you are sure to find a handyman who has the skills needed to complete your to do list.

  • Chimney removal
  • Earthquake repairs
  • Fence building
  • Landscaping and gardening
  • Fixing leaky taps and toilets
  • Cleaning gutters
  • Water blasting
  • Painting

Odd jobs, small jobs, regular property maintenance and those requiring multiple tradies can be done cost effectively by one home handyman. No more having to chase up quotes and arrange for someone to be home on different days and at different times. Your handyman will instead be able to do everything for you, making life much simpler!

Making A To Do List For Your Home

Everyone has got something around their property that needs doing such as mowing the lawns, wallpapering the spare room, painting the kitchen or weeding the garden. One of the best things you can do to keep on track of what property maintenance needs doing is to write a ‘To do list.’

Take a walk around your home and note down everything that needs fixing, cleaning or replacing. Start one room at a time, looking everywhere from the ceiling down. Check doors and windows, cupboards and even floor boards. Look for missing nails, screws and latches which need replacing, light bulbs and fittings which need cleaning or fixing and if the curtain rails are wobbly.

Once you have made your list, it’s time to find a local Christchurch handyman who will take your list and return your free time! Start now by posting your job and let them chase you, rather than you chase them for work!

Homes On Show - Save My Bathroom

Behind every job there is a story. This one starts with a homeowner, and a vision to renovate her bathroom from an outdated 1970’s relic to a modern, clean, and functional bathroom. The Dilemma The story starts with Joanne and her first tradie, a referral from a friend. The tradie seemed great. The homeowner and the tradie agreed that Joanne would buy everything that was needed for the bathroom, and the tradie gave her a cost to install and renovate to her plan. Fast forward three months and the tradie was nowhere to be seen and uncontactable. With the goods for her bathroom waiting in Mitre 10 and a loan taken out for the project, Joanne was desperate to get the job underway. The Solution “I spoke to someone at work, saying I didn’t know what to do. I needed to have my bathroom renovated, and my colleague said, have you put it on Builderscrack?
