How to Hire a Great Handyman

Sooner or later your home will need some TLC and some home repairs are better left off for the handyman to handle.  Whether you don’t want to learn how to repair that *something* or simply don’t have the time it definitely helps to know how to hire the perfect handyman.  We hope that these tips will help you chose the right talent for the right job!

Top Things to Remember When Hiring a Handyman

  • Make sure to do your research when looking for a handyman. Ask your friends, family, and neighbors for their recommendations or go online to check reviews so you know you’re getting someone with a good reputation.
  • It’s always good to get different opinions and quotes from multiple handymen for the work you need done. After comparing them, select the one that offers the best balance of price and quality. Remember that if it’s too good to be true then it probably isn’t so just be careful for someone who promises you a service for nothing.
  • Before hiring someone for a job, make sure you let them know exactly what needs to be done, so everyone’s on the same page. That way nothing will be left out and you both can ensure the job is completed successfully.
  • Always get a contract sorted: Be sure that you have a specific agreement drawn up before any work is started which includes the scope of the project, materials used, cost and an estimated timeline for completion.
  • When getting a handyman, you should double-check their credentials. Ask for documents to prove they are licensed, insured and have the necessary qualifications needed for the job. If you’d like you can also verify them with relevant authorities to make sure everything’s in order.
  • Staying in touch with the handyman is key and make sure you’re getting regular updates on their progress. It’s also important to let them know if there are any changes or concerns that arise during the project.

It’s worth investing in a handyman who is reliable, as it’ll save you time and money in the long-run. Plus, you can rest assured that the job will be done right by an expert.
