Our Services

The handyman/handyperson is the “jack (or jill) of all trades” of the contracting world.  We can often do everything on our clients' list of jobs, and complete all aspects of a project.

Isthmus Handyman provides a wide variety of home repair and improvement services for single family, owner-occupied homes, specializing in small to medium projects and accumulated "to-do" lists. 

If our clients need work done that we don't offer, we can often provide advice and referrals to other tradespersons, and even coordinate our work with them.

Note that we do not service apartments or other rental, business, or commercial properties
We provide a limited set of services to condominium and duplex homes, or vacant homes being prepared for sale or occupancy by the owner.
