Homeowners typically hire local handyman service for one or two projects that need fixing around the house, but what they sometimes don’t realize is what a jack-of-all-trades these teams can be. If your team is known well in the local community, and has a proven record of completing projects that require a range of skills and experience, then you may want to consider them for your project. Here’s how you can find out if your local handyman fits the bill:
They’re familiar with local homes. A local remodeling company is in tune with the needs of area homeowners because they’re first on the line for persistent maintenance requests. They’re also most familiar with the unique structural and environmental factors that can create the most area-specific home improvement issues. They’ll understand what you need done and how best to help.
They have connections in the home remodeling community. If a local handyman has access to a qualified network of subcontractors, it means they’ll have even more valuable experience to pull from and have the resources to answer the call when you need them most. Keep an eye out for reviews from local community members who can verify the quality of their work – if this is evident from different sources online, it should give you more confidence in your decision.
They hold the proper permits and certifications. It’s important to confirm that any contractor you partner with has the proper licensing before picking up any tools in your home. A local handyman should have all of the operating licenses and insurance specific to your city and state; for Virginians, you can confirm this through the Dept. of Professional and Occupational Regulation.
They can provide a range of services. From fixing your broken screen door, to building out your backyard party deck, to a full-on interior or exterior home remodel, local remodeling companies can help you with more than you think! Read more about our full range of services here.
