How to Choose the Best Home Handyman

Handymen are skilled tradespeople and available throughout all areas of the country. The best thing to do is ask around your neighborhood and see who you can talk to and trust. You can earn a lot of money with a well-trusted handyman on your side.


Handymen should have their tools, supplies, and equipment to do their job correctly. They should know what they’re doing, as it’s not hard to make basic mistakes when self-employed.


Some perks make working with a handyman worth the effort: you will not have to worry about being around other people, so there will be less distraction; your home will always be neat, which probably means easier for arranging more significant events later; and finally, you get someone on the other end of the phone 24/7 for emergencies (there’s nothing worse than leaving a call unanswered because it’s your busy day).


If you choose to employ one of these men, keep in mind that he should also be trustworthy if things go wrong (like if he doesn’t complete his job as expected). Also, check how much experience your handyman has before employing him. For example, it would be wonky for me to hire my architect brother for a job, as he has about four or five years of experience under his belt compared to a handyman who’s been around for 20+ years.

Hiring a handyman Skilled handyman’s work is divided into various categories, such as carpentry, electrical work, painting and decorating, and plumbing. I’m not going to bother describing each of these areas because they vary too greatly from handyman to handyman.


The best way to find a professional handyman near me in St. Petersburg is through word of mouth. For example: if you know someone who knows someone who’s had their kitchen cabinets painted by a particular painter, then you can ask them which one they used if you have a similar project in mind. Suppose you’re not nearby the area where your friend lives or works, then ask them to help out remotely (via Skype) by giving suggestions for potential tradesmen nearby. You will make a point of checking their reviews on the Yellow Pages or Google before hiring any other tradesman so that way that you can see how good each person is as well as how long they’ve been in business (this also allows you to see what kind of reputation the company has).
