What Type of Handyman Are You?

December 28, 2015

At Parker & Sons, we are all incredible handymen, but you probably already knew that. Every single Parker & Sons’ plumber professional or HVAC technician has received years of training and has extensive, practical, in-field experience. There is no problem they can’t solve or repair they can’t make.

Not everyone possess the professional aplomb of a Parker & Sons’ pro, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t a skilled and effective handyman. Exactly, what type of handyman are you though?

Procrastinating Plumber

If you are a "procrastinating plumber," you know your kitchen sink is leaking and your shower isn’t working right. Yes, you have heard that the downstairs toilet keeps running after it has been flushed. Fixing these problems wouldn’t even be a lot of work. In fact, you already have all tools and parts you need to get the job done! Yet for some reason, you still haven’t done it yet. Maybe next Sunday after the Cardinals game. Maybe.

OCD Overachiever

If you are an "OCD overachiever" and a single drop of water leaks out of your kitchen sink, you have it fixed before the next drop can squeeze out. You have your sprinkler system metered out so precisely you know how much water it uses to the ounce. You have heard other people complain about low water pressure before, but you can’t sympathize because that is something you have never experienced before.

You are the OCD overachiever. You don’t believe in plumbing problems!

Call Me MacGyver

As a MacGyver-type, you read a book on plumbing once, then threw that book away and build a new water heater out of spare parts in your garage. Other people make jokes about duct tape, but you don’t laugh. You know how serious the stuff is. You have used it to save lives. You tore out your garbage disposal and replaced it with a jury-rigged blender which functions with 1000% better efficiency. It also toasts your toast. Butters it too.
