The best handyman websites are simple—both in web design and content. Your visitors just want quick answers to a few questions, so show them front & center. Anything fancy (like excessive animations or your life story) is just a distraction.
Anyone who visits a handyperson’s website wants to know:
Display answers to all these questions with a straightforward web design. Use simple & readable fonts, a suitable color scheme, and an obvious visual hierarchy that helps visitors quickly scan the website and find answers.
For inspiration, see how the following handyperson websites do it. I dissect the first few for you.
ToddSunn Company by Todd Hauser offers window washing services in the Seattle area. Here’s how the company’s website answers visitors’ questions:
Overall, anyone can scan this website in like 30 seconds and get all the information they want.
The website of expert handyman Michael Rodriguez looks amateur-made (probably he made it one afternoon). There’s a lot an expert designer would change in this website, but it’s a perfect handyman website to showcase how answering the fundamental questions and displaying them in a proper hierarchy is 80% of the work.
Potential customers can find all their answers in under a minute:
In 1996, The Home Team began as a housekeeping company. Soon they expanded to multiple services - pressure washing, gutter cleaning, yard clean-up, handyperson services, and more. They have separate web pages for all their services.
Here’s how the Handyman Services page looks:
It answers all the questions with short sections for contact details, testimonials, services offered, office address, and well-shot before/after photos.
The above three handyman websites are excellent on the “simplicity” front. They have minimal content, and they highlight only the needed pages. Fix-It Friend’s website is the exact opposite.
Check out this handyman website to know what not to do if simplicity is your goal.
Of course, the website’s not all bad. For instance, the project gallery is lovely. Also, all projects under Project Spotlights are well-put.
MRP Services’ skilled technicians can handle all of your home repair and maintenance needs. Carpentry, electrical, painting, drywall, and plumbing are among their handyperson services.
This website looks like your typical service website, which is good. People are familiar with the layout and know where the essential information is.
CJ’s Handyman Services has quick navigation for visitors to find answers to all questions quickly.
Mark Of Interiors offers a range of home improvement services in Blythewood, Killian, Pontiac, Elgin, Lugoff, Ridgeway, Northeast Columbia, and surrounding areas. And they succinctly put all the information on their single-page website.
This website isn’t perfect by any means. For example, some of the text in the hero section is not readable as it’s not contrasting enough (a common design mistake), or the page doesn’t have any testimonials (an obvious content mistake).
But it does have a few elements worth looking into. For example, see the simplicity of the content. While many websites give a blurb for their services, Mark Of Interiors simply lists all the services (and it works perfectly). They also list their service areas similarly. I also like their project gallery:
Pro Property offers handyperson services in Switzerland. Everything is well-put on the website, but I especially like this Before & After section on their About page:
Columbus Handyman has been serving Central Ohio for over 25 years. Their services include most general contracting and handypeople services - basement remodeling, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, etc.
This website’s excellent. It’s straightforward, and every design choice — from typography to color — represents an experienced contractor company’s website.
Johnny’s Handyman Services offers everyday handyman services and more. I like this website’s work gallery and live chat options. The Testimonials navigation link is directed to their Google reviews page, which works, but it’d be better if they had embedded a few of those on the website.
Tyler Mitchell handles carpentry and handyman residential projects for people in the Durham region’s Ajax, Brock, Clarington, Oshawa, Pickering, Scugog, Uxbridge, and Whitby towns.
The website designer Janna Lynn has designed it beautifully, but for some reason, the website is on Shopify (an ecommerce builder). In my opinion, a website builder like Squarespace or Wix would’ve suited the job a lot better. Check out Squarespace vs Shopify or Wix vs Shopify to understand why I think so.
The Britting Group’s primary offering is to take care of all your tedious tasks. This means they provide handyperson services, among others.
This website features beautiful colors, suiting & gorgeous photos, great typography, and an overall friendly design/vibe.
Note: They sell service packages through the website (like the 10 Hours package for $800, 20 Hours for $1400, etc.). And yet, they don’t use Shopify because Squarespace Commerce does the job easily.
Full Circle Lawn Care specializes in the creative design, professional installation, and maintenance of landscape plantings, walkways, patios, retaining walls, landscape lighting, water gardens, and other amenities.
This website is professionally designed, and the content is professionally written: The design is clean, the three-column gallery layout with colorful photos looks nice, and the service pages are easy to follow.
OddJob is a handyman service provider for both residential and commercial places in the Toronto area.
This website’s nice: It features your classic 2015ish-styled business website template, nice professionally-clicked photographs, good icons, and a consistent & well-chosen color scheme.
Smith Handyman Services serves Knoxville, Lenoir City, Oak Ridge, Maryville, Kingston, Powell, and surrounding areas. The service card has a wide range of items - Carpentry, Gutter installation & repair, Drywall repair, Junk removal, Flooring, Electrical, Gutter cleaning, Plumbing, and more.
The website has great photos upfront and minimal content above-the-fold, which I like. They also have a nice blog section that showcases their expertise and a testimonials page that proves they know what they are talking about ;)
This is the kind of fancy website that doesn’t quite suit the handyman services website. Things on this website (like the heroes section animation) take attention away from important things (like the CTA or reviews).
P5 is a family-owned painting company involved in both residential and commercial projects. Their services include everything from patching minor drywall damage to painting huge retail stores.
This website’s homepage features a clean design and awesome typographic hierarchies.
The project gallery page has a standard design, but it can use more and better-clicked images.
Hillier & Co is carpentry and decorating business in Dorset servicing the Christchurch, Bournemouth, Poole, Wimborne, and New Forest areas.
This is a friendly, simple website with plenty of testimonials, ample whitespace, an excellent projects gallery, and well-placed CTAs.
Oscar (the face of Hernandez Handyman, LLC) has been helping San Franciscans with both small and large interior and exterior home projects for over 15 years. His services include painting, all types of installations, furniture assembly, drywall patching, electric fixtures, light plumbing, and more.
Liza Zamarin of LZ Designs has done a good job with website design. It communicates what Oscar does and how well he does well.
Note: This website uses Shopify, but I’d recommend any other easy-to-use website builder for pretty much all handyperson websites.
Murphy’s Home Services offers maintenance plans, handyman services, and property management services.
The website looks nice and is great for web design inspiration. However, it lacks a lot of basic content. I couldn’t find where they provide services. Plus, the website doesn’t showcase any testimonials or previous project photos.
You can replicate the website design and add all the necessary content, and your website is golden.
Note: Murphy’s Home Services using Shopify makes sense to some extent because they at least sell something and accept payment online.
Construction Corfu is a dedicated team of skilled workers that has been building and renovating homes, historical buildings, and commercial sites in Corfu, Greece, for the last ten years.
Dennis is a hands-on contractor with over 30 years of experience in the building industry. You can expect a smooth and efficiently managed process from start to finish from Dennis. He is serving the New Bern, North Carolina area.
Tanner moved to Jackson in 2004 and has been a painter and handyman for 15 years. He is an excellent resource for design ideas, products that last, and budget-friendly solutions.
He enjoys the science of paint and takes pride in the perfect color or stain match. His projects history includes painting for large commercial projects to small rental units.
Ralph has been in the handyperson services and contracting business for more than 15 years. He is from Florida and serves Miami, FL, and surrounding areas.
Streamline Services is a family-operated business in Rio Rancho, NM. Mekali and Tyler Olson help people with home cleaning and more with the support of their 10-year-old daughter and 2 dogs.
They are soon launching handyperson services, and they use their website to communicate that. But, of course, they primarily share about the home cleaning services on the website.
One and Done Handyman is a local Kansas City handyman company serving the metro since 2016. The experienced team of handymen and subcontractors are perfect for all the fixing Kansas City people need.
Handyman Connection is the go-to company for many homeowners across North America. They offer everything from carpentry and remodeling to painting and plumbing services.
The company’s been in the business since 1991 and has franchises throughout the USA. Each Handyman Connection franchise is locally owned and operated.
The Handy Squad was established in 2005. It has offices in Fulham and a great team of experienced handypeople, carpenters, electricians, and more, helping people throughout London.
This website is your typical small business website.
Convivium group is a construction company specializing in residential renovations, construction & handyman services in west Calgary.
One Man & A Toolbox has been in the professional handyman services business since 1997. They take on both commercial and residential projects, as apparent from the link text on the navigation bar.
I love the hero text of Reddi Repair: “Free Your Weekends”. It communicates that they provide repairing services that the customers can do themselves but would rather not do.
C-MAC offers a range of services (including handyman services) to commercial and residential owners. And they communicate all of it well with their professional-looking website.
Handyman Services of CT uses the Handyman template by Squarespace to share about the business. The website has too much information for my liking (three paragraphs about the service, unnecessary descriptions of the services, 10 testimonials on the homepage, etc.), but it’s easy to scan.
Jeterbuilt lists all their handyman services on the homepage and has a separate, well-designed page describing all the services with a professional video and suitable photos.
Cal Pacific Roofing primarily offers roofing services. But they also offer construction services, including handyman services, gutter cleaning and repair, skylights, fencing, decks, doors, drywall, and more. And that’s exactly what the website conveys through the minimal, one-page website.
This website is too minimal, though. It skips important content like testimonials.
The Hourly Husbands Handyman Service website does beat around the bush a bit (like by adding an “Our Mission” section up top), but overall it’s a fundamentally solid website. Clear navigation, consistent color scheme, readable fonts, nice testimonials page with three featured testimonials and links to Google and Yelp reviews, and nice photos.
Paul Burnstein describes himself as the tech handyman. His services include In-Home Support for Computers, iPads, Tablets, and Smartphones-related problems.
Handyman Services in DC website is keyword stuffed for SEO. Everything from domain to headings and content on the homepage to navigation link texts tries to tell Google, “Hey, down here, we are the handyman services in DC.”
I’d recommend against this strategy or ask to do it better because this ruins the reader’s experience. Plus, it likely won’t get good results because most of the top SERPs are from Google or other review sites like Yelp, Houzz, Angi, etc.
The website design is decent, though.
House Doctors has franchises across the US that help with small projects & repairs. The website of House Doctors has the classic 2015ish service website vibe.
Fixer sends its people to fix electrical, door repair, plumbing, painting, and other problems in Chicago, Naperville, Dallas, Seattle, and Denver.
This is a nicely designed website and has a fantastic copy. The website looks fancy but communicates what it wants to communicate: The navigation helps get to important sections, CTAs are well-placed, the color scheme is a bit unusual for a contractor/handyperson website, but it works, and the pictures are nice.
Just like the Honest Renovators site, The Ultimate Handyman website has a bit too much content. But unlike the Honest Renovators site, this site is a bit overwhelming and crowded. Nothing and everything is in focus…which you should avoid when making your website.
Roby Services offers a nice chat button to book any of their services - electrical, handyman, plumbing, etc. The website lacks a few things, but I like the color scheme and how “professional” everything looks.
Ecoclean’s website is sleek. It has tasteful animations, good color choices, relevant visual elements, and obvious hierarchy. However, it does lack some essential elements (like Testimonials, for example).
This design + remodel + handyman website starts nicely but then gets clunky. You can use the above-the-fold section for your website inspiration.
I love the wordplay of Zachary Brown’s Zach of all trades. I also like a lot about this website, like it features testimonials right below the hero section, it has a good gallery, etc. However, I don’t care much for in-your-face color and font choice.
Located in Seattle, Washington, Seattle Best Handyman is a full-service handyman services provider. They offer home renovation and repair, framing, insulation, electrical, HVAC, drywall, painting, and many more services.
Shadow Creek Home Service is a handyman and contractor in the Houston area. The company’s website has some unnecessary animations (like the on-hover animations in the services list) and an unusual web design.
Tip: Stick to the obvious when designing your website. People look for a navigation bar at the top, so keep it there.
Mr. Does All is a known handyman service provider in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, and Staten Island.
And for the business, this website is well-structured. For example, the CTAs to get estimates in the hero section suit it because it’s already popular. On top of that, they also have enough information for people who don’t know them.
The Holton Handyman website looks dated and is bad from a web design perspective in many ways, but it sure communicates most of what a handyperson website should communicate.
