For this roundup, we hammered together a collection of the best WordPress handyman themes for 2017. Small businesses specializing in home repair and maintenance will impress potential clients and enjoy an edge over the competition using one of these inexpensive, professionally designed themes when building their WordPress web presence.
And these themes aren’t just for handymen. Any theme on our list can easily be adjusted to fit a variety of home and building oriented services. Carpenters, electricians, plumbers, painters, and other repair and renovation professionals should find at least one of these high-quality products useful.
We based our choices on design quality, industry appropriateness, and freshness. Everything on this list uses the latest web technologies–responsive design, for example–and reflects contemporary, modern web design trends. You won’t find anything ugly, out-of-date, or barely relevant.
Before we continue: if you’re trying to save some cash with a DIY WordPress website, be sure not too spend too much on hosting if you don’t expect a high volume of traffic. We recommend Bluehost, one the most reliable and inexpensive hosting providers around (with plans starting at 7.99 including a free domain). Hosting for a small business website shouldn’t cost more than your monthly phone bill.
But enough about that, let’s check out some WordPress handyman themes.
