PALS offers an outreach program of Handyman Service for those in the community who need a helping hand. We have 2 retired men who have been doing handyman type jobs as a hobby (at least not their primary job) for many years. The goal is to provide help to Senior homeowners for minor repairs/installations. Most professionals are not interested in such minor jobs except at higher than expected costs. HandyPals charges $10 per job which goes to the Handypal volunteer to cover his transportation and tools. Any supplies are furnished by the homeowner. Jobs requiring more extensive work may be accepted by the handypal if he feels competent in doing the work and a price is agreed upon. Examples of work done are as follows:


Change Light fixtures
Replace electric outlets/switches
Repair Lamps
Minor repairs to cabinets/furniture/etc.
Repair leaking faucets

Repair leaking toilet tanks
Install Window blinds
Hang/Rehang closet doors

Change locks
Replace window pane
Install shelves

All materials are paid for by the owner
