Columbia Handyman Services

A handyman covers a wide range of services around the house that do not require special skills or equipment. Because South Carolina is located on the East Coast, it is no stranger to severe weather and hurricanes. Handymen can provide services to help make minor repairs to ensure that homeowners are prepared for severe weather. Additionally, they help make repairs caused by storms. Historic homes abound here; finding a handyman that specializes in their upkeep is often of utmost importance.

Prominent Neighborhoods

Columbia, SC is located in the central part of the state along the Congaree River. It is the largest city in the state and spreads out farther into several bustling suburbs. Handyman services available Columbia often include outlying areas such as West Columbia, Lexington, Ballentine, and Swansea.

Urban Neighborhoods

Many of the city’s urban neighborhoods, including Melrose Heights, Cottontown, and Forest Hills, are replete with early to mid 20th century colonials, bungalows, and Victorians with expansive porches and mature trees lining their streets. A number of Columbia’s handymen specialize in the sensitive maintenance tasks required to preserve these older homes, but they are no strangers to installing updated fixtures and finishes to add 21st century touches. Handyman services also help preserve unique architecture and maintain the value of the city’s 18th century houses.

Suburban Neighborhoods

Homes and yards begin to sprawl out closer to the city limits in neighborhoods such as Wildewood, Spring Valley, and Longcreek Plantation. Recreational opportunities abound in these areas with the abundance of parks, golf courses, tennis courts, and horseback riding trails. Although private swimming pools are rather uncommon in Columbia, many homes here feature them. As a result, handymen servicing suburban neighborhoods often provide pool cleaning and maintenance services.

Local Handyman Costs in Columbia

When a homeowner has multiple small projects to complete, handyman services are usually billed by the hour; many handymen often require a minimum number of billable hours. The average hourly price for handyman services is $60 to $65. However, some handymen can charge as much as $125 per hour depending on experience.

Columbia markets itself as the Famously Hot city, and air conditioner cleaning, fan installation, and outdoor room maintenance are practical necessities. Handymen normally know what these and other common jobs entail and how long they take to complete. Because of this, they often charge a flat rate to complete a single job.

Benefits of Handyman Services for a Home

Hiring a handyman to complete small projects around the home can save the homeowner time and money. By performing routine maintenance and handling repairs quickly, homeowners ensure that the home does not sustain extensive or expensive damages.
