3 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Handyman


From holes in the drywall to damaged siding, the local handyman should be able to help.  In many cases, relying a home repair contractor to do the work is the most cost effective solution. 

Though hiring a contractor is the most convenient solution to household repair problems, there are 3 key questions you should ask before allowing them into your home.  Keeping a home functioning properly with improvements that last is very important, but so is hiring the right home repair guy for the job.

A reputable handyman will be happy to answer these questions and provide verification of his qualifications:

Is he properly insured?

This is the very first thing that you must know before hiring a home repair contractor.  They must carry proper insurance in case they are injured on your property or cause damage. 

Can he provide a free up-front estimate?

A good handyman should be able to provide a cost estimate before beginning the job.  Also ask how long it will take to complete the work.

Is the company experienced and organized?

Many home repair contractors carry their portfolio with them and are proud to show before and after photos of their work.  Find out how long they have been in business and get references from previous customers.  They should be well-organized and confident in what they do.  It would be unreasonable to expect them to be wearing a shirt and tie, but on the other hand, a sloppy appearance should be a red flag.

Research several companies before choosing one to work with.  Check their Better Business Bureau profile online and look for customer reviews.  These days, people are quick to post their comments about home service providers, both positive and negative. 

By doing your research and asking the right questions, you can be confident that you are making a good choice.   A home repair contractor should not only be convenient, but their work should be professional.
