Homeowners in the UK hire a handyman for a variety of reasons. A handyman can help with maintenance and repairs, such as fixing broken windows, doors, or plumbing. They can also install new appliances and fixtures or perform basic carpentry and electrical work. A handyman can also help with home decorating, gardening, and landscaping, and even help with moving furniture or heavy items. Handymen can be especially useful for elderly or disabled homeowners who can't do these tasks themselves.
