How to Find an Expert Handyman for Your Home Maintenance Needs
Sometimes having a man in the house is not enough to fix everything that needs fixing. Especially when it comes to utilities. This is when you start to hunt and look for possible helpers or handymen to assist in your property maintenance.
Before scouting the internet, here are some tips you should consider so you’ll end up with a handyman that will deliver the services you want.
- Define your project details.
The first and crucial step in finding the perfect person to assist in your maintenance needs is setting a clear list of the things you want to achieve. Create a project checklist that includes everything down to the tiniest details of your maintenance project. Research possible price range for each item, so that you are ready for the financial responsibility before seeking professional services.
- Ask around.
Ask around through your neighbours, family, and friends if they have a handyman service they always turn to. By getting recommendations, there is a lesser chance of encountering headaches during the process. If you are unable to get any recommendations, then the internet is a great reference, just make sure to double check the company’s profile, background, ask for their previous client’s testimonials, and overall be mindful and interview at least three so you have options.
- Look at their area of expertise.
Once you’ve narrowed it down, take an even greater look at each company’s capability for repairs. There are handyman services that focus on carpentry or paint jobs, so if you’re looking into utilities maintenance for your property, double check your project list against their services. In most cases, it is best to find a handyman service that is proficient in a variety of work tasks so there are lesser people coming in and out of your property. A few point person is easier to monitor than having to contact a different person for every item on your list.
- Assess their personality.
Do not just base your choice in one phone call, before you decide on which handyman service to avail, take the time to talk with the company and get a feel of their character. Are they time efficient? Courteous? Do they answer your queries straight forward? Keep in mind that you may be constantly calling them, so good communication is key to a successful maintenance project.
- Ask for documentation.
Even if you are sure of the company or the referral you got, nothing is better than putting things in paper. This is not only beneficial for you, but also for the handyman. Putting everything in black and white or a contract determines the exact provisions of their services and fees puts the whole process in transparent. See to it that reports, receipts, and agreements are well taken care of by your handyman.
