In every household, there comes a time when a leaky tap, a squeaky door, or a problematic toilet demands attention. That’s where a skilled handyman steps in – your reliable partner in maintaining and improving your home or business. In this article, we’ll explore the diverse responsibilities of a handyman and how their expertise can benefit homeowners.

Our team of multi skilled men and women, all of whom have served in HM forces are highly skilled in a number of trades.

Section 1: The Jack-of-All-Trades

Handymen / multi skilled trades are often referred to as the “jack-of-all-trades,” and for good reason. These professionals possess a wide range of skills that cover various aspects of home maintenance, repair, and improvement. From plumbing and basic electrical work to carpentry and painting, a handyman’s versatility is a valuable asset for homeowners.

Section 2: Home Repairs and Maintenance

One of the primary roles of a handyman is to handle routine maintenance and repairs around the house. This includes fixing leaky pipes, repairing broken windows, patching up plasterwork, and addressing simple electrical issues. By addressing these minor problems promptly, a handyman can prevent them from escalating into more significant, costly issues.

Section 3: Carpentry and Woodwork

If you have a list of woodworking projects or need repairs involving wood, a handyman is your go-to expert. From building custom shelves to fixing creaky stairs, their carpentry skills can transform your home. The Welsh Handyman Company takes pride in delivering high-quality carpentry services tailored to your specific needs.

Section 4: Painting and Decorating

Enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your home is another forte of a skilled handyman. Whether you’re looking to refresh a room with a new coat of paint or add decorative coving to your living space, a handyman can provide professional painting and decorating services. The Welsh Handyman Company employs experienced professionals who can bring your vision to life with precision and attention to detail. Our main decorator is a former Royal Engineer and highly experienced in advising the right types of paint for your exact home, using premium brands or achieving cost effective colour matches.

Section 5: Electrical and Plumbing Work

While handymen aren’t licensed electricians or plumbers (we have these in the team for these tasks) , they are well-versed in handling minor electrical and plumbing tasks. Whether it’s replacing a light fixture, fixing a leaky sink, or installing a new appliance, a handyman can tackle these jobs efficiently. For larger projects, they can advise on when it’s necessary to bring in a specialised professional.


In summary, a handyman is a versatile and valuable resource for homeowners, capable of handling a broad spectrum of tasks.
