What is a handyman? A handyman may also be known as a handyperson or handyworker. A handyman is a person skilled at a wide range of repairs, typically around the home. These tasks may include trade skills, repair work, maintenance work, are both interior and exterior, and are sometimes described as "side work", "odd jobs" or "fix-up tasks". Specifically, these jobs could be light plumbing jobs such as fixing a leaky toilet or light electric jobs such as changing a light fixture.
The term handyman increasingly describes a paid worker, but it also includes non-paid homeowners or do-it-yourselfers. Tasks range from minor to major, from unskilled to highly skilled, and include painting, drywall repair, remodeling, minor plumbing work, minor electrical work, household carpentry, sheetrock, crown molding, and furniture assembly (see more complete list below.) The term handyman or handymen is occasionally applied as an adjective to describe politicians or business leaders who make substantial organizational changes, such as overhauling a business structure or administrative division.
Generally the job of paid handyman is low status, a semi-skilled labor job. It's a less prestigious occupation than a specialist such as a plumber, electrician, or carpenter. In many states like here in Texas a license is not required for a handyman service. With the emergence of franchises an effort is being made to change that perception, by emphasizing professionalism and the fact that a handyman is actually a technician with multiple skills and a wide range of knowledge. At the same time, unpaid homeowners skilled at repairs are valued for saving money.
Installing kitchen cabinets is a medium-level handyman job, with multiple steps, which competent handymen can do; consider hiring a specialist kitchen remodeler for a fancy kitchen. Along the same lines a handyman can paint, install drywall, hang doors, install a ceiling fan, etc. In Texas it is necessary to hire a licensed contractor for all Air Conditioning repair or installation, and electrician for electrical work and a plumber of plumbing work.
Many communities like Katy, Sugar Land and The Woodlands have handymen who work part-time, for friends or family or neighbors, who are skilled in a variety of tasks. They vary in quality, professionalism, skill level, and price. Contractors often criticize the work of previous contractors, and this practice is not limited to handymen, but to all trades.

Other competitors include online referral services. In addition, some large home centers offer installation services for products such as cabinets and carpet installation. Sometimes homeowners contact a professional service after trying, but failing, to do repair work themselves; in one instance, a Minneapolis homeowner attempted a project but called a technician to finish the project, and the overall cost was substantial.
Handymen have been hired to de-clutter attics and garages. They may also clean gutters and paint your home.
The type of projects which handymen can do is extensive, and varies from easy-to-learn tasks which take little time such as changing a light bulb, to extensive projects which require multiple steps, such as kitchen remodeling. Here is a partial list:
