3 Things to know before hiring a Handyman
Maintenance is defined as the process of preserving a good quality condition over a longer period of time. Every house, office or other living space no matter how old or new is, needs maintenance. Issues come up quickly and if you don’t have the right tools to find the source and fix it, you expose yourself to bigger risks and cost.
For these small projects, all you need is a reliable and experienced handyman. However, before you google and hire the closest handyman in your area, there are three things you need to consider.
- Do a quality research
For any type of handyman services, you need to do your research. There are many online reliable sources that give valuable information about a potential hire. Some of the data you should be looking for include:
- License numbers
- Portfolios of work
- Type of experience
The perfect candidate will be the handyman that will provide quality service for optimal price and cost. In order to find the right one, you have to do a throughout research carefully.
- Follow your family and friends references
If you want to save your time on endless online research, ask your friends or family for a reference. You have to find the right service provider or candidate that is easy to cooperate and trust. Family and friends won’t recommend anyone that didn’t do a great job. Ask your close friends or your coworkers for recommendations.
- Verify the License Number
There are handyman professionals that lie about the validity of their license. There are states that don’t require such verification but some states do. Check with your local government and verify that number. Finally, make sure they have insurance. You always need to have a backup plan if something doesn’t go smoothly. With insurance, you will be always covered for a bigger repair bill.
