A Guide to Finding the Right Handyman for the Job

Do you need a little work done around the house? Who doesn’t? The trick is finding the best handyman for whatever it is you have in mind. If you haven’t hired a handyman before, here are some words of advice that might help.

Ask Around for a Handyman

There are instances where a personal referral can make all the difference. When you need to find a mechanic, for instance, the first place you turn is friends and family. Well, the same can be said for finding a handyman. Ask the people close to you if they’ve had the occasion to hire a handyman. If so — and they were happy with the results — it’ll make your search a whole lot easier.

Make Sure They’re Insured

Once a handyman steps foot inside your home, you may be liable if they suffer any injuries. The only way to protect yourself is to make sure that whoever you hire is fully insured and licensed. Recruiting your cousin to fix your plumbing might seem like a good idea, but only by hiring a bonded and licensed handyman will you be truly protected.

Look Online

Ideally, your handyman will come to you through a friend, but if that’s not possible, you can find skilled and reputable craftsmen on the internet too. Popular websites like Angie’s List and Yelp carry information regarding dozens of local handymen. There will be plenty of reviews as well, so it’s the next best thing to a personal reference.

Match the Handyman to the Job

A handyman should be able to handle several different tasks, but that doesn’t mean they’re experts at whatever it is you’re looking for. Before committing to a particular craftsman, make sure they’re adept at the skill you need for the job. This is especially important if you need several different fixes as once. Ask them for details regarding their specialties to make sure they have the experience you require.
