A handyman is a person who has a skill set that enables them to handle
a wide range of mildly technical service needs in a building. This can
include but is not limited to repairs, servicing and maintenance,
installations, modifications, fabrications, and manual jobs.
What Do Our Handymen Do? The capabilities of our handymen range from interior to exterior works. They are great for less technical fix-up tasks that demand multiple skills. An example of such a task is fixing the floor drain of your bathroom ; hiring a handyman that has some knowledge in plumbing and tiling might be more cost-effective than hiring both a professional tiler and a professional plumber.
Handymen are also sometimes called Fixers, Repairers, Handypersons, or Handy-Worker.
How Competent Should a Handyman be to Register with Us?
The competence of handymen hinges strongly on their training and experience. Unlike Professionals, handymen do not need to have certifications or belong to professional organizations. Being a member of a trade union is enough if it is paired with sincerity, good manners, and excellent finishing.
If you fit these criteria and have commendable work ethics, then we invite you to register with us.

How Do Professionals Get Jobs on Buildings and More?
Our professionals are an important part of us. We want to help you find quality projects that are in line with your expectations.>
Whether you prefer projects that are close to you or are willing to travel to work on distant projects, we’ll help you find what you need.>
There are three ways to get hired on Buildings and More:>
Receive Job Calls from Potential Clients
On your professional profile, you can display pre-packaged services and their prices. Consequently, when visitors view your profile, they can order your pre-packaged services which will mean that you have been automatically hired. You will be notified whenever this happens.
We make it possible for potential clients to find and engage your services while shopping on SHOP. When they search for products that are related to your specialization, your profile could also turn up in the search results so that you’ll be considered for the job.
Furthermore, your services are tied to products that relate to your area of expertise (e.g, wood boards are tied to carpenters). When customers go on to make purchases, you will automatically be suggested to them as a qualified service provider. However, only professionals that sponsor their profiles or perform outstandingly well, will enjoy this extra benefit.
Apply to Project Calls
Clients might not wish or have the time to search for competent professionals for their projects. Especially for big projects that will require many skilled workers, a client might opt to make a Project Call by publishing the nature of their project and the products, professionals, and handymen that they believe they will need.
When a customer makes a Project Call, suitable personnel with the project’s expertise can apply to be considered for the project. The client will review all sent in applications, interview the applicants that stand out to them, and select those that they consider suitable to work on their project.
Should you be invited for an interview or selected by a client for a job, you will be duly notified. We advise that interviews be conducted remotely; either via voice call or video call.
A client might have a job that needs skilled services but not know which professional or handyman they should hire. In such a situation, they can reach out to our Project Fulfillment team who will help them understand the nature of their project and help them find a suitable service provider.
We may suggest suitable professionals, but the final decision is up to the client. If you are chosen as the professional that they prefer, you will be contacted with the job offer and be provided with the client’s budget and the details of the job. You have a right to either accept or reject the job and provide a quote if one hasn’t been established yet.
