handyman vs contractor

When should you Hire a Handyman vs a Contractor for Your Home Improvement Project?

Homeowners sometimes need help around their home. From repairing some plumbing or electrical issues, installing new tiles, remodeling rooms, or applying a fresh coat of paint on your home interior or exterior. While you can do it yourself, it takes time and possibly expertise you might not have. Depending on the size of the job this could require a handyman or a contractor. But how would you know which professional to hire?

Handyman vs contractor

Both people are skilled in what they do and you should always check the credentials of the person or people you are hiring.  Having someone who is licensed and insured will definitely help should something go wrong like an accident on the job.

Home Repairs and Maintenance

A handyman in Tennessee sometimes can only handle small repairs and general maintenance work around your home. Broken fixtures, leaking pipes, small odd jobs.

But a licensed handyman, such as Tobin’s Home Services, offers that and a whole lot more, such as electrical re-wiring, finding and fixing faulty wiring, plumbing issues, re-routing plumbing tubing, and of course, making sure your house is in good shape mechanically to help avoid unnecessary problems.

Large Home Improvement Project

When you start to look at bigger home improvement jobs, like adding a deck, adding a room, remodeling the interior or exterior, contractors definitely come to mind.  But with a contractor, that can come with more overhead, more hassle and possibly more money needed for the job.

Licensed and bonded handymen, such as Tobin’s Home Services, are more than your average handyman service.  They have been helping homeowners just like you tackle big and small projects of remodeling, painting and power washing your home.

What might take months to handle with a big contractor could only take weeks with Tobin’s Home Services.  They have the expertise and experience to take on almost all but the biggest projects.

Selecting the right person for the job

You should talk with multiple contractor and handyman companies to find out all of your options and compare the services, skills and expertise between them to find the best fit for your home improvement needs; and make sure the personality of those you will be working with are compatible with you.
