When getting ready to have a new backsplash installed, you’ll have your pick of a wide range of types of contractors to handle the job. And, you may be wondering – can a general handyman do this type of work? As kitchen backsplash installers, we specialize in this task, but others are certainly willing to take it on. So, is that a good idea? Let’s explore this idea below. 

Yes…. And No

Technically speaking, yes – the average handyman will be able to install a backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom. The job involves preparing the surface by removing any old materials, collecting the new tiles and related supplies for the job, and placing those tiles on the wall in an organized manner. With just a bit of experience working on home repair and installation projects, a handyman can get the job done. Will the work be done to the level of professional kitchen backsplash installers? That’s another story entirely. It wouldn’t be reasonable to expect a contractor who does a little bit of everything to perform up to the level of a specialist who does this kind of work day after day throughout the year. 

Get an Expert

Considering the featured role that your backsplash tends to play within any design, it would be a mistake to trust this project to someone who might not nail it on the first try. Kitchen backsplash installers who specialize in this work have built up a level of experience and expertise that just isn’t going to be matched by a general handyman. That’s not meant to criticize those who work in the handyman profession – they offer a valuable set of skills to the average homeowner. In this case, however, go with the pros who have made this a career so you can be sure to get great results.
