It’s hard to keep up with the maintenance around your home. Even trailers/mobile homes can become a handful, overwhelming you in those instances with respect to the regular repairs they require. Maybe it’s a clogged drain that’s an issue. Or perhaps a leaky pipe is troubling you. The point is you don’t have the time or the tools or the knowledge to do it yourself. Whether it’s upon recommendations by others or your thinking, you come up with two options as to the help you require: (a) a handyman and (b) a professional plumber.
Hiring the wrong person can be a costly mistake. While you’re deciding your choices, here’s something to help you decide constructively.
The Pros and Cons of Hiring a Handyman
As the term implies, a handyman in simple terms is someone who works with their hands, hired to do repairs and keep the commercial or residential space in good condition. As multi-skilled tradesperson, they cover small jobs that are likely to come up on daily basis. They are like a one-stop shop for everything from mowing the lawn hedges or cleaning the gutters.
So, what’s the hiccup then if one can simply call up a handyman for scheduled maintenance? While they have a basic understanding of different types of services, they are not specialized in any of them. They’re just another person with a toolbox. They lack training, which makes them not so ideal a candidate for complex projects. Point is they don’t need a license to begin work so even though they are valuable asset, you’d find more and more people turning to professional companies to make the repair.
They’d either be self-employed, with one or two assistants, or they might be working for a large handyman company. It’s inexpensive but then they won’t be having formal qualifications.
