Every property owner knows there is no such thing as a home that does not need repair. There is always a picture to hang and it’s just a matter of time before a toilet stops running or you’re dealing with an annoying clogged drain. Owning a home (or several) means being prepared for the eventualities. At Island Home & Estate Management, we know your time is valuable, so we ensure the handyman to-do's are properly handled regardless of size or complexity.

What is a Handyman?

A handyman is knowledgeable and skilled at various repair, installation, and maintenance tasks for a home. Depending on their expertise, a handyman can extend their services to the interior or exterior of the house. From simple fixes to painting, a handyman can take the burden of many household tasks off your shoulders.

What is the Difference Between a Handyman and a Contractor?

License and scope of work are the two most significant differentiators between a handyman and a contractor. Contractors are typically certified by the state to conduct large-scale work like remodeling or construction. On the other hand, a handyman does not need a license because they focus on smaller tasks which require less planning, delegation, and pose a significant health hazard.
