The Right Handyman for You

Picture this: You come home from a day at work only to find your porch light isn’t working, your faucet has an annoying drip that won’t stop no matter what you do, and your cabinet door is loose. It’s time to call a handyman but where do you start your search? Choosing the right handyman for you can be a daunting task, especially for single women since some men will try to rip you off. With just a few simple tips, you can show you’re informed and know what you’re looking for.

  • Make a list of handyman services and check each one out. Go to their company website and read up on their business before calling. Sometimes you can eliminate choices by reading the company information online. Check their credentials. Are they registered with the Better Business Bureau? How long have they been in business?
  • Write down the repairs needed, starting from big to small. This will give you and the prospective handyman an idea of how much work needs to be done and how much the job will cost. Don’t decide on the handyman that is the cheapest. Sometimes the old saying of ‘you get what you pay for’ is true. Rather, pick one that is knowledgeable and you feel is the right fit. Quality is always more important that quantity.
  • Arrange a meeting with your chosen handyman to walk him through the issues of your home. This is a good time to ask for examples of his work and any references he may have. Nowadays, that information can be found on the company website but it’s still a good idea to ask.

 

I recommend staying close by the first time he comes to your home just in case he has questions. It also eases your own mind to be able to see him work and take note of his professionalism.
