Top questions to ask before hiring a handyman

Handymen are hired to do many various home improvement tasks. Some are general tradesmen, who have a variety of experiences. Others have licenses and training in electrical work or plumbing. The key is asking what their level of experience is for the type of work you need done. Before you call a handyman, know what you need done along with any important details. You'll want an in-home consultation so that you can walk through the project.

Handyman licensing varies from state to state however it's a good question to ask your handyman. You'll also want to verify the dollar amounts for their surety bond (a third party that can cover payments in case the handyman doesn't pay subcontractors or employees) as well as insurance (in case they damage your property or injure themselves).

After the handyman has had a chance to walk through the project, have him or her outline the scope of work. The details of the project, including labor, materials, supplies, rental equipment, or subcontractors, should be listed as separate line items. If you are on a tight budget or timeline, this is the time to discuss options or alternatives for your project. If the project is small, like hauling debris or performing minor repair work, the handyman should request payment when the job is complete. For larger projects that require ordering of materials or multiple subcontractors, it's more common to pay a deposit.

Obtaining proper permits for home improvement is the responsibility of the homeowner. But very often professional file the permits on behalf of the homeowner and should have a good understanding of the process. When the structure of the home is altered, or when changes are made to the electrical system or gas lines, you may need to file a permit. Discuss your particular project with your handyman and ask if a permit is required.

A good handyman should be happy to share references. Anywhere from three to five past clients should be able to give you a good idea about the handyman's work style, ability to get the job done, and the satisfaction when the job is complete. If a homeowner wasn't satisfied with the handyman, be sure you ask specifically why. Sometimes miscommunication can contribute to unsatisfied customers.

Everything You Need to Know About New York Handyman Services

Can I browse unscreened Handymen in New York?

We do our best to screen all of our handymen. However, there are still some handyman professionals in New York that have not been pre-screened.

How does invoicing/payment work for most Handyman projects in New York?

Every project differs, but you should ask any handyman for an estimate, before they do any work. In fact, ask for their general payment terms before any handyman services work is done.

If the job is large and going to take longer than a day, it's common practice for handymen to request a down payment. Usually, this will be around 25% so they can commence work on your handyman project.

If it's a quick job, you'll likely be given an invoice/bill when the job is complete. Then it's up to you and the handyman to determine if you pay immediately or can send payment at a later date.

My Handyman Services project in New York is really small. How much should I expect to spend?

The lowest price we could find for handyman services work in New York is about $122.00. You should expect to pay at least this much depending on the scope of your project.

Handyman work at this level can sometimes involve several steps or phases. Cost for every project will differ depending on the quality of Handyman you hire, the type of materials required and the timeframe that you want to finish within.
