We all have little jobs to do around the house – cleaning the gutters, fixing that leaky faucet, a window that won’t open properly, and many other items. One of the first things people do is think about hiring a handyman. But before you do, consider a few points.
First of all, make sure that you’re not hiring a “Jack of all trades but a master of none”. Look at their work (if they have samples of it), read their reviews, and make sure they are the right person for the job.
Second, think about the job itself. Is the job something for a handyman, or do you need a specialist? For instance, that leaky sink may turn out to be a bigger job than you anticipated – would it be better to hire a plumber?
Third, think about the cost. Many people hire a handyman because they usually don’t cost as much. But if the handyman costs half as much as the specialist, but takes them three times as long to do the job – did you really save any money?
On the end, a good handyman is an awesome contractor to hire – for the right situation.
