Plumber or Handyman: Who Should I Call?

What can a handyman plumber do for you? While some plumbing jobs and repairs can be a simple fix, others are more complicated. Therefore, knowing if you should call a handyman plumber or a licensed professional is a must.

Handyman Connection offers full-scale home plumbing services across the United States and Canada. If you are unsure if you need a handyman plumber or a licensed professional, here are a few examples of projects that belong to handymen and plumbing service companies respectively.

When to Call a Handyman Plumber

Are you trying to access how much assistance you need when it comes to your plumbing issues? First, you’ll need to evaluate the severity of the situation. Handyman plumbers are great for smaller, non-invasive fixes of toilets, showerheads, sinks, and other smaller plumbing fixtures around the house. Also, know that any fix that doesn’t require digging into your walls or flooring falls within the wheelhouse of a handyman plumber.

Reasons to Call a Handyman Plumber

  • Leaky faucets
  • Broken toilet handles or handle arms
  • Broken toilet seat replacement
  • Fixing the flapper or other toilet tank mechanisms
  • Repairing or replacing a broken faucet
  • Installing new faucet, toilet, or showerhead
  • Installing a garbage disposal
  • Minorly clogged pipes
  • Repairs that don’t require cutting into the wall or floor

Reasons to Call a Plumber

On the other hand, plumbers are licensed professionals who have often had many years of training or apprenticeships to learn the trade. Therefore, when the job calls for one, Handyman Connection’s plumbers can help with major fixes that deal with the inner workings of your house.
