LOS ANGELESFeb. 28, 2024PRLogThe Importance of Choosing the Right Handyman

When it comes to home maintenance and improvement, the decision to hire the right handyman can significantly impact the functionality, aesthetics, and value of your home. Whether planning to sell your house or intending to enjoy it for years to come, the importance of regular, quality maintenance cannot be overstated. Handyman Hero Pro recognizes that a well-maintained home not only maximizes life and happiness but also ensures the maximum value of your property.

The Pitfalls of Hiring Based on Price Alone

While the temptation to choose the cheapest handyman available is understandable, it often leads to more problems than solutions. Low-cost options can result in subpar work, the use of inferior materials, and ultimately, a need for costly repairs down the line. Handyman Hero Pro advises homeowners to consider the long-term implications of their handyman choice, emphasizing that an initial higher investment in quality service can save significant time, money, and stress in the future.

Essential Questions to Ask When Hiring a Handyman

To assist homeowners in making informed decisions, Handyman Hero Pro recommends asking potential handymen the following critical questions:

  1. Are you licensed, bonded, and insured? This ensures protection against potential damages or accidents.
  2. Can you provide a detailed estimate and timeline? Understanding the scope and duration of the project upfront can help manage expectations.
  3. Do you guarantee your work? A commitment to warranty signifies confidence in the quality of service.
  4. Can you provide references or examples of previous work? This offers insight into their experience and expertise.
  5. How do you handle unexpected issues or changes to the project? Flexibility and clear communication are key to a successful project outcome.

Channel 4 announces Hollyoaks’ schedule refresh as flagship soap prepares for blockbuster 30th anniversary year


  • From September 2024 Hollyoaks will move to a drop pattern built around evolving viewing habits with three new episodes each week on Streaming, E4 and YouTube
  • The data-led move is part of Channel 4s Fast Forward strategy to accelerate its transformation to be a digital-first public service streamer and builds on the success of Hollyoaks transition to the UKs first genuinely digital soap
  • The shows offering to be supercharged by appointment of new Executive Producer, Hannah Cheers
  • Hollyoaks 30th year to be one of renewal with a reaffirmed commitment from Channel 4 and more hard-hitting and ground-breaking storylines to engage fans, and attract a new generation of viewers

As part of its recently announced Fast Forward strategy, Channel 4 is switching up the schedule of its ground-breaking soap, Hollyoaksthe first UK soap to move to a genuinely digital first model last yearwith a new episode strategybuilt around evolving viewing habits.

From September 2024, the new, data-led drop pattern will see the soap move from five new episodes per week to three on streaming, E4 and YouTube. Extensive research has identified this as the optimum pattern to keep heartland audiences hooked and attract new ones in a highly saturated content market.There will also be a drama packed hour-long weekly omnibus episode broadcast on Channel 4 and available to stream.

The move reflects how young audiences are already consuming Hollyoaks, with Channel 4 data showing that the most loyal soap fans watch an average of three episodes per week. The new strategy will enable the show to cut through more powerfully with fewer, higher impact episodes.

Alongside the episodic changes, Lime Pictures have appointed Hannah Cheers as Executive Producer to lead Hollyoaks exciting evolution.Cheers has been interim showrunner since September 2023, overseeing standout, critically acclaimed storylines, includingdriving the January stunt episode, which along with outstanding production values solidified the success of streaming-first, as well as masterminding the return of iconic characters likeJacqui, Myra, Cleo and Theresa McQueen and FreddieRoscoe.

While audiences continue to love strong brands and familiarity, they are confronted with ever increasing choice and a growing number of titles. Fewer episodes mean greater focus on the characters and gripping storylines that we know audiences love most. The new format will ensure Hollyoaks stays relevant, competitive, and ahead of the curve in a changing TV market.

Hollyoaks will continue to focus on being the youngest-skewing and most innovative soap tackling real-life issues in an authentic way. It will offer more spectacular storylines and drama, focusing on fan-favourite characters and their interconnected lives, which research tells us is what viewers want more of.

It will build on the huge success of recent special episodes, which have demonstrated the way in which concentrated, well-crafted instalments resonate with viewers.Januarys special episode that featured an explosive multi-vehicle collision, exploding a number of stories and introducing new characters saw streaming views up 62% over the previous four-week average making it the biggest Hollyoaks episode ever on Channel 4 streaming*.

The new digital first streaming pattern for Hollyoaks launched in September last year, is also performing strongly with theshows streaming views up +33% since November 2023 on the four months prior.

The changes to the drop pattern of the show will have an impact on its production. Channel 4 will work alongside Lime Pictures to minimise these impacts where possible.

Ian Katz, Chief Content Officer said:Hollyoaks is on sparkling creative form at the moment and these changes will ensure it remains compulsive viewing for a new generation of fans as viewing habits change. The show has always been at the forefront of innovation in all of its forms, including increasing and decreasing episode numbers in response to viewing habits. These changes are a decisive step forward, designed to reflect how audiences are watching. A tighter schedule promises a new era of more scale and impact. We are of course mindful of the impacts on the production team and will work closely with Lime Pictures to minimise these where possible.

We are also delighted that the brilliant Hannah Cheers will be leading Hollyoaks into its fourth decade. Hannah is passionate, rigorous and has an outstanding track record of finding and developing talent.

Hollyoaks has played a crucial role in nurturing talent for nearly thirty years, and we are excited to continue to develop new opportunities and nurture the stars of tomorrow. I would like to thank all the Hollyoaks cast and crew who have been involved in the programme since its inception.

MDs of Lime Pictures, Kate Little and Claire Poyser said: Given the success of the new streaming-first model, we are delighted that Hollyoaks remains at the forefront of Channel 4s digital first strategy, bringing authentic, unexpected and untold stories that inspire younger audiences in a way that they want to consume them.

We are absolutely thrilled that Hannah Cheers will lead the show into its next exciting chapter. Evidently there are implications that will mean we have to reshape Hollyoaks production model and amidst the buoying news for the future of the show and its audience, we must also acknowledge that a reduction in cast and crew, will be very difficult and we will support everyone in that process.

Hannah Cheers, Executive Producer said: Hollyoaks offers a unique proposition: bold, escapist, relatable, youth-skewing and multi-generational stories, told in its innovative and technicolour signature style. The show continues to bring people together by making them feel something, and everything. Approaching its 30th anniversary in 2025, Hollyoaks matters just as much now as it did at its trailblazing launch.

There may be speculation about the future of Continuing Drama, but as someone who was brought up on the nations soaps – and remains a true fan – I believe their value must not be underestimated.

Soap audiences grow up alongside their favourite characters over a period of many years; the investment in their stories is huge. The genres ability to initiate important conversations is unparalleled, especially when it all comes served up with joy, humour and jaw-dropping twists. I want future generations to experience that.

I am honoured to lead Hollyoaks into its fourth decade on Channel 4 and drive the vision of this transition.

Ben Wadey, Channel 4 Commissioning Executive for Hollyoaks said: In January I promised a blockbuster year for Hollyoaks and after a powerful start with our breath-taking hour long special, theres no let-up in momentum. At Hollyoaks we have always been brave, leading the way and not only tackling stories that others wouldnt dare to, but changing and evolving to the needs of our viewers. Dont forget Hollyoaks initially launched with just one episode per week in 1995, gradually increasing to two in 1996, three in 1999, four in 2001 and finally five in 2003.But now in 2024 we must flex again, as we have always done, to best serve our audiences and keep our young skewing soap in step with young viewers. Were not afraid of change, it has been key to Hollyoaks longevity so far and will be the key to its future.

The primary goals of this office are:

Cross pollinate industry experience.

Provide advanced engineering support to local companies in MedTech, Electronics, Transportation, and other industries.

Develop and recruit local engineering talent to support M4 projects at large.

The project lead for this effort is Vitaly Rezekulov, Technical Center Manager at M4.

This expansion is a key step in our mission to serve a broader clientele, gain access to fresh pools of talent, and to develop new expertise. I extend a warm invitation to those eager to collaborate and shape the future to reach out to us. Our team brings together top-tier consulting professionals, advanced technologies, and an expertise in Siemens engineering software.”

The choice to open up the Technology Center in Shakopee, MN was based on M4’s desire to provide better support for some of our local partners, like Polaris Industries, and to help develop an innovation ecosystem in their area.

“Polaris Industries applauds M4 and their commitment to customer service by opening their new office in Minnesota. This strategic move enhances accessibility to superior services, comprehensive training, and advanced technical support. This reflects a shared dedication to exceeding customer expectations and fostering strong partnerships.
