As homeowners, we sometimes encounter household tasks that are beyond our expertise but are still considered “small” projects. Instead of getting contractor bids for each one, we can hire a local handyman to perform many tasks that might require two or more contractors. For example, if you have a leaky faucet that needs replaced in the bathroom, the garbage disposal needs replaced, you need a new back door, and the gutters need cleaned, you can hire one handyman to complete all four tasks. A plumber would be able to install the faucet and the garbage disposal but the plumber will not install your new back door or clean your gutters. A local handyman will likely complete all four tasks in one day.
Things to consider when hiring a Atlanta handyman
A local handyman will be less expensive than a contractor but price should not be the deciding factor. If the project is a large project that will take several weeks to complete, it might be best to get some contractor quotes too. Do not rule out a reputable handyman for large projects though.
Another thing to consider is whether the job requires a license to complete. Some handyman companies hold contracting licenses or have licensed professionals on staff.
It is also important to contact references provided by a handyman. This is particularly important if the handyman is not licensed. You will be working closely with the handyman so you will want a good working relationship so it is important to interview them first.
So, if you want to get that to-do list done quickly and efficiently, contact a handyman. Small jobs like touching up paint, replacing and installing small appliances, flooring, clean-up, etc. are all things a handyman can complete. Handymen will even assemble furniture or hang artwork. A trusted, professional handyman can be a homeowner’s most valuable asset.
