Handyman Services

Unlocking the Potential of Your Property with Island Home Watch Handyman Services

Every property owner understands that no matter how well-maintained a home may be, there’s always something in need of attention. From that crooked picture on the wall to the inevitable plumbing hiccup or bothersome clogged drain, the responsibilities of homeownership come with a certain set of eventualities. At Island Home Watch, we recognize the precious value of your time and are dedicated to ensuring that all your handyman to-do’s, regardless of their size or complexity, are expertly taken care of.

What Is a Handyman?

A handyman is a versatile professional skilled in a wide array of repair, installation, and maintenance tasks for your home. Their expertise covers both the interior and exterior of your house, making them indispensable for a range of household chores. From minor fixes to painting, a handyman can shoulder many of the tasks that arise in daily homeownership, relieving you of these burdens.

Handyman vs. Contractor: Understanding the Difference

The most significant distinctions between a handyman and a contractor lie in licensing and the scope of work. Contractors typically hold state certifications and specialize in extensive projects like remodeling and construction. In contrast, handymen do not require a license, as they concentrate on smaller tasks that demand less planning and delegation, with minimal health hazards.
