Handyman workers usually have a wide range of knowledge and multiple skills. Handyman tasks range from minor to major, from unskilled to highly skilled, and include painting, drywall repair, remodeling, minor plumbing work, minor electrical work, household carpentry, sheetrock, crown molding, and furniture assembly.
The Greater Johannesburg region consists of more than five hundred suburbs in an area covering more than two hundred square miles. The suburbs to the west of Johannesburg have in recent years floundered with the decline of the mining industry, but have in some cases experienced some revival. The biggest sprawl lies to the east and north of Johannesburg. The eastern suburbs are relatively prosperous and close to various industrial zones. The northern suburbs have been the recipient of most of the flight from the inner city with the city starting to sprawl northwards and multiple secondary CBDs forming in the north towards Pretoria. Traditionally the northern and northwestern suburbs have the centre for the wealthy in Johannesburg. These suburbs contain high-end retail shops and upper-class residential area such as Hyde Park, Houghton, Sandhurst, Bryanston, Hurlingham and Northcliff.
