Even though you pride yourself on being a handyman there are some maintenance or renovation jobs you just cannot do. It may be that what is needed is outside of your field of expertise, it’s illegal for an unqualified tradesman to do it or it requires the tools that you don’t have and that are not worthwhile purchasing because you wouldn’t use them enough to get the value out of them. So when you have to hire a professional handyman such as JCA Services, here are some tips to ensure you get it right.
- Make sure the handyman can do the job you want done. Not all skilled handymen do all jobs, or they may not be qualified for all work, such as plumbing and electrical work.
- Ask them to show you their liability insurance as well as their other professional qualifications.
- Use someone local as long as they have all the qualifications you need. That way you will pay less for travelling time.
- Ask around to see if you can get recommendations on the quality of their work. They may even take before and after photos for their portfolio or website.
