Plumbing requires years of training.

A handyman is a home repair professional that can do almost any minor repair and renovation job around the home. But identifying a specialty area of focus can help you attract the most lucrative home projects. You could specialize in kitchen renovations, bathroom renovations, or even garage doors. So while it can be tempting to become a jack of all trades handyman that accepts any job, consider focusing on a single area of specialty as your business grows.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions about starting a home repair business.

Tips to Name a Handyman Business

One of the best ways to give your handyman business a great name is to actually use the word “handyman” in the name itself. This makes sure people know exactly what you can offer before they even ask. Having a clear name that explains your service is half the battle.

Using your own name can work too. People often prefer a personal touch when it comes to their home. By using your name you can demonstrate that you really care and are willing to put your name behind the work.

Don’t forget to consider the names of other handyman businesses in your area too. Steer clear of a name that is too similar and could confuse customers. Do a little research in the phone book and online to find the names of your competitors. Any idea that is too similar to an existing business can be crossed off the list.

Ideally, the name should be short and memorable, easy to pronounce, flexible in case of expansion into related services (such as air-conditioning repair). The name and business tagline should help demonstrate confidence among potential customers.

Should You Include Your Personal Name for a Home Repair Service?

Generally speaking, personal names are commonly used in the home repair industry. Feel free to include your first or last name in the business. Examples of this approach include Pat’s Home Repair, Steve’s Handy Dandy Service, and Bobby Joe’s Residential Water Treatment.

Should You Be a Jack of All Trades or Specialize?

Being a jack of all trades does mean that you can cover all the aspects of home repairs and other jobs around the house that the owners don’t want to tackle. If you have a broad skillset, being a jack of all trades can be beneficial in the early stages of a startup business. If you’re looking for a little work on the weekends to supplement an existing income, an all-purpose handyman side-hustle is a perfectly find way to get started. You’ll begin learning a lot about working with customers and what it’s really like to operate this type of home service business.

Keep in mind thought that specialization in a certain field means typically means bigger jobs and a better reputation for craftsmanship. In many areas of home repair, you can specialize in one task and build a terrific business. One example of a task you could complete is blind and shutter installation for residential windows.

It took more than a week to schedule a consultation at my home for blinds and shutters. One quote came in at over $12,000 to install blinds and shades in my four bedroom house. When the installation experts came to my home, it took them about two hours to get everything installed and looking good. Even if the company paid 50% of the total price to the blind manufacturer, they would still walk away with about $6,000 net profit. This is for about 4 hours of total work between the sales process and installation. I see the same company in my neighborhood almost every week.

Just think about how much net income you could generate monthly with this business if you were only able to service one customer per day in your market? You’d be able to live comfortably pretty much anywhere you want. And after you’ve completed a few home installations, the process of working with customers would be extremely routine.

But there are all sorts of home service businesses like this. Overall, it depends on the type of business you’d like to build and the customer base of your local demographic. If you are going to be looking at working with larger companies, then being a specialist is a much better option. But if you are inclined towards the personal home repair market, then being a jack of all trades can certainly work too.
