life time support.
As a handyman service, we provide a wide variety of around the home jobs at what is more than likely a discounted rate from what a contractor would charge. Since specialty contractors like electrical, plumbing, and other contractors generally have a higher rate per hour, hiring a handyman to handle the tasks, generally would cost you less.
Granted, you may not want to hire a handyman to do the plumbing for an entire house or electrical work that involves a run to the breaker, you may decide to save by having the handyman do the smaller tasks on your honey do list: install ceiling fan, doors, fences, flooring, child proofing, and so forth.
Its evident with today's economy that people are looking to save a buck wherever they can, but sometimes savings can cost prohibitive. In these attempts to save, homeowners sometimes end up shorting themselves in time, expense, and/or quality of the job.
Instead of trying to tackle a job such as installing a rug or tile floor for example, focus your efforts on tasks/jobs that you are confident that you can get without question. A faulty installation not only will be visually evident, but also could reduce the life of product installed. Rather than focus on the finish of the floor, the smart consumer focuses efforts on preparation to reduce the handyman's tasks. These efforts could be removing the furniture from the room, and if so inclined, removing the existing floor.
Another example where you could save money when hiring a handyman or contractor might be to handle the debris removal after the job. Usually a contractor will cart away the debris after the job, but you might find you can save money by bringing it to the town dumps yourself.
This is just two example of ways to save when using a handyman service. Of course, these are just two examples. When you think about it, anything that could reduce the contractor amount of time on the job site will reduce the cost of the bill, providing that your efforts are not causing more work for the contractor. While most cost reductions can be common sense, you might want to ask your contractor or give us a call.
