As you all may know I’ve been renovating my house for some time now.  It seems to take forever when you’re amidst it all.  Each little job can take what feels like a lifetime and there is always one more little job to do.  Televisions show’s like The Block can make you feel like your own handyman jobs and renovations are going to take forever. They make it all look so easy and super fast don’t they?

Today I’m going to share my tops tips for getting those handyman jobs done.  These simple steps can make those daunting tasks seem so much easier.

Make a Check list

My number one tip is to start a list of those pesky jobs you’ve been wanting to get done. Whether it’s a ceiling repair, repainting the kids bedrooms, fixing a broken light just start a list. Getting a list started from most important to least important is a great way to motivate you so you can act on it straight away.

Create a Schedule

Create a schedule for the work that needs to be done. Prioritise how soon you would like the work be started, when you would most likely want it to be finished, and a timeframe as to when your handyman expects to be on the job. This is a great way to stay on task and stay focused to get those jobs done.

Find Reliable Candidates

Find reliable candidates to get those jobs done. Outsourcing those pesky jobs is the best way to start ticking them off your list. Hiring skilled tradesman through Airtasker is a great place to start. Jobs like painting, furniture repairs, plumbing and electrical, there is a tradesman for every task that needs doing. Access to a skilled community of over 1.3m people to help with your tradesman and labour tasks is just a click away.

Once you’ve done your checklist, prioritise what needs to be done first, contact a skilled tradesman and then its time to get a quote and schedule a time to get those jobs done. Always ask questions about how long will it take, how much will it cost and when can a I schedule it in?

Once you have a established these steps you are on your way to having all those handyman jobs done.  After all you want to enjoy your home and not feel like it’s a burden all the time.
