From time to time, you may hear home improvement professionals and companies talk about how they help homeowners with their "odd jobs" around the house. But what is an odd job exactly? Mr. Handyman can answer that question.

What Are Odd Jobs?

Odd jobs are handyman services that don't necessarily fall into major trade categories like carpentry.

We consider odd jobs to be services like the following:

  • Changing hard-to-reach light bulbs
  • Hanging pictures (or animal wall mounts)
  • Power washing driveways, patio furniture, siding, etc.
  • Weatherproofing windows and doorways
  • Furniture or outdoor play set assembly
  • Installing exercise equipment
  • Replacing/repairing ropes on flag poles
  • And the list can go on and on...

Basically, odd jobs are the tasks that homeowners ask "Who should I call that can help with ________?" when reviewing their to-do lists.
