Repairs and renovations are inevitable when you own a home. From plumbing leaks to fence-mending to laminate flooring installation. The list goes on and on. As homeowners, we take pride in our investment, so maintaining it is simply a necessity.
However, we know it can often be a headache. This is why we always urge homeowners, real estate investors, and agents to let a professional handyman company tackle all of your projects.
After 10+ years in this business, we’ve seen it all. Clients sometimes decide to hire family members or friends to help work on a project with hopes of saving a few dollars. Then they find themselves calling us to step-in or repair something a month later. If you’re a property investor or real estate agent, you know time is of the essence. So, a project gone wrong could cost you even more money.
GARSC Operations Manager, Matthew Meade, has provided a list of the top 6 reasons he believes it’s imperative to hire a licensed, insured and experienced handyman for any and all of your home maintenance, repairs and/or renovations.
1. Experience Speaks for Itself
Paying a professional once to get a job done right the first time is always better than having to call later to fix new problems created by someone less qualified. Knowledge and experience will always shine brighter than cheap, get it done quick price.
2. Time and Money Matters
Providing a thorough project timeline and budget is an essential element of running a successful contracting business. As a client, having peace of mind that your project is going to be completed in the specified times and within the amounts agreed upon whenever applicable, is invaluable.
3. Work Smarter and Not Harder
Professional residential service companies are equipped with the best tools and materials to get the job done right the first time. This provides the ability to not only keep projects on time and within budget, but to deliver precision and quality.
4. Expert Advice for Clients
Once a project is finished, that doesn’t mean the relationship with the client is. Professional handymen also provide information on how to maintain that completed work in order to avoid having issues arise again in the future.
5. Safety First
Given the current climate, it’s equally essential that all technicians arrive at job sites ready to socially distance and equipped with all of the necessary personal protective gear (gloves, masks, sanitizer, etc.). Professionals make sure to provide a safe and welcoming environment for their clients wherever the work may take them. All of our GARSC handymen strictly follow all local and federal guidelines when it comes to the safety of themselves and those around them.
We hope this list has given you a bit of insight as to why it’s always best to hire a professional handyman to complete your home improvement projects. If you need a little extra guidance, here are a couple more resources for you.
