How to Choose a Good Handyman

It can take you hours to deal with repairs around the house, not to mention that some of them require specific handyman tools and know-how that most don’t have. Homeowners realize that they need the help of an experienced and professional handyman, but how do you choose one? Here are some steps to follow:

Ask friends and family

The best way to find a good handyman is to ask those around you. Lots of friends and family members will have already established a relationship with someone local and will be able to recommend or advise against one.

Run a search online

After recommendations, you should also do an online search. You can assess them by checking the feedback they have received on customer review sites. You can also check their own websites to see if they have any testimonials and what expertise they have.

Check their licensing 

While there are lots of unlicensed handymen that you can find in the market, if you are looking for quality work, go with a licensed handyman. Sure, they might cost a bit more, but you can enjoy peace of mind because you know they will do the job expertly.

 Ask for estimates

After you have several potential handymen on your list, you should ask them to provide you with estimates. Question them about their availability and any guarantees for their work. You can do a consult with each of them to see if they seem like the right fit to you. Some do this for free while others may charge a small fee.

 Get it in writing 

Always get the quote in writing in order to ensure you are both on the same page. This means listing everything that’s included in the price they have quoted as you don’t want any surprises later on.
