HOME REPAIR ADVICE FOR EXPATS IN THE NETHERLANDS
Almost all Dutch handymen and tradesmen (plumbers, heating specialists, etc) in the Netherlands will provide service on a one-time basis when requested. But expats should also be aware that there are home maintenance companies in Holland which offer service contracts. What is included in the contract will vary, but typical tasks are heating/cooling system maintenance, replacing ventilation filters, removing leaves from rain gutters, fertilizing lawns, etc. Contracts can also include seasonal repairs and odd jobs like paint touch up or fixing a leaky faucet.
When in need of a specific home repair, it is helpful to know the Dutch terminology for the specialist service required…
building contractor = aannemer
carpenter = timmerman
electrician = elektricien
painter = schilder
