Handyman Services in Singapore
Handyman services refers to the provision of general repair, maintenance and installation work for home and office. The services usually includes electrical, plumbing, carpentry, painting, drilling and general repair and installation work. The request for handyman services has increased recently in Singapore especially for residential properties. This is because more homeowners are willing to pay for the services so that they do not have to carry out the physically demanding activities of house repair and maintenance themselves. They can spend the precious time with family members and friends or pursuing other hobbies instead of repairing or fixing damaged items at home. Many young adults also lack the skills to perform electrical, plumbing, carpentry, painting and other repair works.
Hire a Handyman or Do-It-Yourself?
To save some money and to learn new skill, it is good to perform some general repair and maintenance work at home and office. This is provided that there is little risk of injury when you perform such work. However, some handyman work (e.g. electrical task) is advisable to be carried out by a trained professional to avoid injury or death.
How to Select a Suitable Handyman?
Many of us are home alone (especially the housewives) and it is only natural to worry about letting in a stranger to perform handyman service. Therefore, we recommend the following criteria when choosing the handyman:
- Handyman used by your friend and relatives.
If any of your relatives or friends have a trusted and reliable handyman to introduce you, it is wise to use the same handyman for office and house repair. Even if the handyman service is a little expensive, it may be worth paying a little more for better repair work and services.
- Ask for their licence or registration number.

It is important to check whether they perform rectification work free of charge when the initial repair work didn’t fix the problem. Some handyman is willing to come back to fix the problem if the same issue re-surface within 2 weeks to a month.

Plumbing work may be performed in-house if you have the tools and knowledge. The risk of injuring yourself is lower than electrical job. However, there is still some risk involved especially if you do not have the necessary tools and are using your bare hands to perform some plumbing tasks. For example, you clear the debris in the drainage pipe with your bear hand to unclog if and your hand gets trapped in the pipes. Tasks like changing taps and replacing bidet can be done with little risk. If you have never changed a tap or replace a bidet before, it may just take you a little longer to fix it properly.
