Founders Message

Thank you for taking the time and caring enough about your business to consider become a member of the UHA.  I know we share the same dedication to the home repair industry and strive for improvement.  We currently have members in 18 different states and three countries but we are looking for more and need your help.  Word of mouth is one of the best forms of advertising.  Help us by talking about us and what we do.  Like us on facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/United-Handyman-Association/253430868032278 and share us with your friends. Follow us on Twitter @united_handyman.  Every other trade has an association that legitimizes them in the industry.  Now the handyman has the UHA. The only way to make change to improve our business is to come together.  The UHA was formed for the Handyman by the handyman.  We just need your help to get the name out there and as we grow the more powerful the UHA will be and more benefits to the handyman.  Some states like California and Nevada don’t recognize the handyman as a trade and attempt to pressure the tradesman to become a Licensed Contractor with not so ethical sting operations.  We believe that the handyman is a special trade of its own and should be a choice of the homeowner.  We say “regulate don’t eliminate”.  We have made it our goal to represent the handyman industry giving the handyman business an association to get certified and join other handyman businesses with a common goal.  We work with our members to help improve their businesses.  If our members are successful then we are successful.  Tell your friends, customers and if you have a handyman ask them to become certified.  If you are a handyman business owner ask your workers to become an individual member to get certified.  Tell your customers that all of your handymen are screened and certified and show off your certified profile you earned it.

We can’t do it on our own, become a member today for just $50 per year and help with our efforts. Remember to deduct all fees paid each year on your taxes.
