Your Guide to Choosing a Local Handyman

Local Handyman

Your home is one of your biggest investments and as such, you want to know that it is protected even when you are having work performed on it by a local handyman. Before you choose the first handyman name in the phonebook, consider the following tips when you search around.

1. Avoid a Cash Upfront Local Handyman

If your local handyman is asking you for cash upfront before any work is performed, run, and run fast. You should never have to pay for the project until it is completed to your satisfaction.


2. Check for Availability

The handyman you work with should be available and easy to work with. If at any point you find it becomes too difficult to plan and schedule work with them, find someone else.


3. Using Leftovers

If you are working with a handyman who insists on using leftover materials, think twice. Your local handyman should always buy new materials for the job and not provide you with hand-me-downs.


4. Insured? Licensed? Bonded?

It is a wise idea to work with a local handyman that is licensed, bonded, and insured. Not only does this protect the handyman, it protects you as well, especially if the handyman decides not to finish the project for you.


5. Do a Thorough Search

Always do a thorough search of the local handyman you are working with. Know who they are, who they work for, and what other people have to say about them. You will be protecting yourself by doing this.
