Tips on Hiring a Richardson Handyman

Handyman Services Richardson TX:  Often a contractor’s fees to handle small projects can be more than the actual project is worth.  Many contractors would rather not do small jobs.  A Richardson handyman, who makes a living from small remodeling projects, is often a better choice.  Handyman Services have very qualified people who are licensed, bonded and insured to handle everything on the homeowner’s to-do list.

If you have a list prepared, a Richardson TX handyman will provide a quote and often do the work the same day.  Once the handyman is on site, moving from one small project to another is cheaper than having them come back two or three different times.

Many people are too busy to handle the simple home repairs and improvements.  It makes economical sense to hire a Richardson handyman rather than a general contractor for small home repairs like chipped floor tile and loose molding.   A handyman service is the best choice for the various small jobs.  Contractors would rather do the big jobs and are often too busy to take time out for the small jobs.   If they do take a small job, their fee is generally more than a handyman’s fee because they have a crew of contractors depending on them for a day’s pay.

How Big is the Job?
A Richardson TX handyman service specializes in small jobs that can be completed in one to three days.  If the job is large enough to take over a week, then it might be necessary to hire a contractor who specializes in the project.

If you need a new roof, windows and siding, you need someone who specializes in exterior home repairs.  But if all you need is a room painted, some drywall repair, or finishing touches done to a room, a handyman would be the best choice.

How much does a Richardson TX handyman charge?
Like any contractor, a handyman should provide you with a free no obligation estimate before doing any work.  A homeowner should be sure they understand the total cost of the services including material and labor. Typically, most handyman services charge an hourly rate for labor.

How to find a quality handyman in Richardson TX
Finding a handyman in Richardson is much easier today because they advertise on the internet, in the Yellow pages or through coupon direct mailings.  Ask friends or neighbors if they have had any work done recently; maybe they can refer someone. 

Once you find 2 or 3 handyman services in Richardson, check them out before choosing one.  Don’t just go with the lowest bid; consider the impression they make when you interview them and have them in your home to do the estimate.  Did they track mud in?  Did they listen to your concerns and explain different options for getting the results you want?  It is important that you are able to communicate with the handyman who is going to be doing repairs and improvements to your home.

Ask for references and call them to make sure the handyman did quality work and stood behind the guarantees. Also check with the local Better Business Bureau, 248-644-9100, to discover if there are any complaints against the handyman.

Finally, make sure your Richardson handyman is licensed and insured.  If the handyman isn't insured, the homeowner could be liable for any damages or injuries while the handyman is working
