 Frequently Asked

Does homeowners insurance cover handymen?

It may be possible to claim for damages to your property from shoddy handyman work with your home insurance policy. Home insurance policies differ one from the other, so speak with your home insurance provider to learn more about coverage in such circumstances.

How to find a handyman?

A simple online search can show you plenty of results for handymen in Ireland, but how many are reputable, reliable, and available in your area and how many are fly-by-night cowboys who shouldn’t be let anywhere near your home or business? The best way to find a handyman near you is to take your time and review handyman businesses. Ensure that they are insured and reputable above all else.

What can a handyman do?

A handyman can do most routine repairs and maintenance tasks on homes and businesses in Ireland, but there are also many jobs they cannot do provided they lack the proper trade certifications. Jobs that require professional knowledge of building codes, plumbing, and electrician work, for example, are in most cases best left to specialised tradespeople which we also have as part of our wider team. 

Does a handyman need insurance?

In general, handymen in Ireland should have adequate insurance coverage for the type of work they are carrying out. Always ensure that your contractor has both employer’s liability and public liability insurance at a bare minimum. A reputable handyman will happily provide you with their insurance credentials before commencing work. Insurance is standard for legally operating as a handyman in Ireland.

What do handymen do?

Handyman is sort of a ‘catch-all’ term used for an individual that carries out various domestic and commercial repairs and maintenance work such as painting, cleaning, floor and tilework, basic electrical and plumbing work, gardening, and landscaping. In brief, they provide a wide range of general skills for maintaining homes and businesses.

Can a handyman do electrical work?

Under most circumstances, you are obliged by Irish law to have a Registered Electrical Contractor (REC) when carrying out electrical work in your home or business. Jobs not listed as restricted or controlled electrical works do not require an REC, but those listed must be performed by an REC. If your handyman is a REC, they are legally permitted to perform electrical work.

Can a handyman do plumbing?

A handyman can carry out many domestic and commercial maintenance work, but plumbing is a registered profession in Ireland requiring professional accreditations from completion of an officially recognised plumbing apprenticeship. If your handyman is a registered plumber, then yes, they can carry out plumbing work.

How much does a handyman charge per hour?

It really depends. In Ireland, average hourly wages of handymen vary from €17 up to €19 per hour in Dublin and Cork. This doesn’t take into consideration VAT and all of the associated labour costs, however, so a more realistic estimate would be between €30-35 per hour. Furthermore, experience plays a large role in determining rates. An inexperienced handyman would likely command low rates whereas professional handymen with years of experience can be expected to charge higher rates.
