Why do handymen charge by the hour ?
Handyman services do not generally require an inspection and can be done instantly e.g. mounting a TV, curtain or blind installation, if the parts are available. It therefore does not make sense to do an inspection and charge a call-out. Therefor it is more transparent and fair to both parties, to follow a per hour charging method.
What are common accidents that can happen due to low quality handyman services ?
While hanging fixtures, you could drill through a wire containment or a water pipe within the wall or drill the hole too loose that the fixture isn’t firmly hung to the wall. Also, the strength of the screw might not be appropriate to take the weight of the wall fixture making it prone to fall over time. Also, the level of the wall fixture if not done properly will lead to a fall as weight of the fixuture does not get balanced and remains hinged to one side. If proper cleanup is not done there could a nail that might hurt someone walking casually around the work area.
