Did you move into a new property during the last few months and are looking to spruce it up? Whether you’ve moved into an older property that needs a few finishing touches or moved into a new build but it doesn’t feel like home yet – you might be thinking of changing it up. The question now is… should you hire a handyman or do it yourself?
Hire A Handyman
Both options come with their advantages and disadvantages. To find out the ins and outs of hiring a handyman, I spoke to the Handy Squad, handyman London. The Handy Squad has been helping Londoners for over twenty years with a variety of services – from general handyman services to electrician and plumbing services – so they know a thing or two about these services.
When To Hire A Handyman?
General handyman can complete a variety of tasks, including hanging things up, such as hanging up mirrors or putting up curtains, assembling flat pack furniture and even undertaking various odd jobs, such as tidying loose cables, draught proofing and fitting new toilet seats.
The Handy Squad recommends hiring a handyman to guarantee the tasks you require are done quickly, efficiently and to the highest standard. Some tasks might prove to be too difficult to complete or even dangerous for the average person to do by themselves.
Maybe you started mounting your TV to the wall, however, something came up and now two weeks have passed and your TV is still on the floor and the living room is a mess… Hire a handyman to do it. As Wood Create comments, “You might have the necessary skills to complete home renovations all by yourself but the truth is that sometimes is best to hire an expert.”
Sometimes life gets in the way. Sometimes you simply don’t have time. Sometimes you want to make sure tasks are complete to a professional standard. Choose a professional handyman during times like these. Rice Cakes and Raisins believes that “some things should be left for the professionals.”
Do It Yourself
Do you feel confident about completing a certain task and have enough time to do it? Go for it! If time is not an obstacle and the task seems simple enough, give it a go. Be sure to read a few guides on how to complete the task safely and efficiently. Victoria’s Vintage says that certain tasks, like bleeding radiators, sound more difficult than they truly are. “If I can do it, so can you.” She says.
Plus, by doing it yourself, you will get bragging rights (yes, that’s true!). You’ve painted your front door – tell your friends and family when they visit. You’ve assembled all the furniture in your dining room – share your before and after photos online and be proud of it!
Will you do it yourself or hire a handyman for the job? If you need a handy man London, the Handy Squad will be able to help. Even though these professional handymen only cover London, I’m sure you will be able to hire a local handyman to give you a helping hand with your tasks. If you are going down the route of doing it yourself, I wish you the best of luck!
