St Paul Home Improvement Contractor from HandyPro Offers Safety Tips to Homeowners

Seniors and single female homeowners sometimes feel vulnerable to being treated unfairly by home improvement contractors


St Paul MN – HandyPro Handyman Service began when founder, Keith Paul saw a need to raise the bar on quality in the home service industry. He was inspired to start his own home repair and renovation service when his grandmother was treated unfairly by a home improvement contractor. Their honesty and reliability has allowed HandyPro to grow by opening several franchise locations in the US.

When handyman scams are reported in the news single homeowners and senior citizens feel uncomfortable about choosing and hiring a home improvement contractor. Calling a company based on a trusted recommendation is one solution, but be aware that the contractor sent may not the same one generated the referral. Many home improvement companies can be found on the internet, but don’t be fooled with impressive websites that boast honesty, reliability and professional workmanship, because anyone can type these words.

The Twin Cities handyman ( suggests several great ways for consumers to protect themselves from unscrupulous home service providers. They can start by doing a little research on the company using credible websites like the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List or Service Magic. If the home improvement contractor they are considering is not listed on any of these sites, chances are he cannot be trusted. All home service providers should at least be a member of the BBB to show they are reputable.

Consumers can also ask for a physical description of the home improvement contractor that will be sent. Does he drive a company vehicle with lettering and a logo? Will he be in uniform? If not, then it is important to at least know what he will be driving and how he can be identified.

Though the handyman may be licensed and bonded, it is not a good idea to leave them alone in the home. Take care to put valuables like jewelry and cash away. If possible, invite a friend or neighbor over for coffee to help keep an eye on things.

Collin Dickey, owner of HandyPro Handyman Service ( does not want residents to be afraid when they need home improvement or general repairs done, but he knows first-hand the emotional effect of a bad experience with a contractor.
