What makes a good handyman?
Because handymen carry out many different jobs they need broad experience gained from a curiosity of how things work and a physical work history.
Handymen do not always come from a trade background, but they often do and this can certainly help.
Some are formally qualified as a carpenter or painter others may have worked in construction as a labourer, having been around tradesman in previous jobs they will have picked up skills, knowledge and understanding of other trades. They will have gained a lot of experience in working with materials, fixing things and understanding how things work and fit together.
Great with their hands
A home handyman will need to work with their hands all day. They will be confortable with manual labour and working with physical structures. They will need to be quick, accurate and competent with their hands, and enjoy doing physical work. They like to be active by making, fixing and installing things.
Curiosity of how things work
They will most certainly have been tinkering about in their own home in the past.
Because every job is different and will present a different challenge.
