It’s an essential part of home ownership to obtain a high quality workman to fix and reconstruct and maintain your house in a cheap and hurry. Often times we hear upsetting stories of events where unsuitable work was done or the contractor took the homeowners money never to return to finish the job. If you heed 1 or 2 critical precautions, you may prevent costly and damaging work performed to your house.
Ensure that the contractor is approved, bonded and insured. As an example my Handyman Columbusis approved to do work in my Columbus, Ohio home. It’s important that the contractor you select carries liability insurance as well as Worker’s Compensation. This will take culpability off of you if an accident occurs on your property.
Ask your friends, family and neighbors for referrals. The best way to find a honest and quality contractor to do home remodeling is by asking around about others experiences. Take a look at your local Better Business Bureau to see if there are any complaints on file.
The contractor you choose should have references, pictures and should be able to show you evidence of references. There should be a detailed quote of the work performed including, price, amount of time required for completion and details of the materials needed. This quote should also indicate whether materials are included in the cost. It is sensible to get a couple of quotes but remember that the lowest quote might not provide the highest quality work. It is often best to select a handyman that’s more informed and devotes enough time to detail the work that’s being estimated.
A quality handyman will arrive in a clearly marked vehicle and will be wearing a uniform displaying his company. This isn’t just for safety reasons, but to also prove that this is a longtime Company. You might also consider asking how long the Corporation has been in business. As an example, Have you always been in the Columbus area or have you worked in other towns.
As you can clearly see, this could take a little additional time. If you follow these simple qualification checks on your potential handyman, you will save a lot of heart-ache, aggravation and money!
