How to Hire the Right Home Repair Contractor near Shelby Alabama

local Shelby AL handyman contractorsHiring a handyman near Shelby AL can be an affordable option to completing various home repair or improvement projects yourself that you have been putting off.  With time consuming work and family responsibilities, it may be difficult to complete your list of home repairs, which can have a negative impact on home maintenance.  A Shelby handyman is normally less expensive than licensed contractors who work in one area exclusively, such as carpenters or painters.  And with their extensive and broad experience, they can help you avoid making mistakes when installing a water heater, replacing a garbage disposal, or putting in kitchen tiling yourself.  There is nothing more aggravating than having to hire someone to re-do the job after you have done it very badly!  Also, it can end up being more expensive than if you had hired a professional to begin with.   So, if you are thinking of doing some home improvements or repairing something either in the house or outdoors, consider the advantages of hiring a experienced handyman instead.

Why Hire a Handyman Instead?

Shelby AL handymanSometimes it is best to leave it to the experts when considering home maintenance or repair, particularly when it involves a more complex project.  A qualified and experienced Shelby AL handyman can not only get the job done fast but do it right the first time, saving you frustration and time for other obligations.  Oh, and also save you money.  But what are the benefits of hiring a handyman compared to other options, such as hiring a plumber,a carpenter or an electrician?  Let’s take a look at some of the main reasons that it makes sense to utilize handyman services for your next home project.

  • Charge by the hour. Most handymen in Shelby AL charge by the hour and not by the job.  This means that you only pay for the time spent doing actual work and not pre-set service charges plus additional costs that could far exceed what a handyman charges.   They also tend to have lower overhead and no employees, so they can charge less than a typical plumber or electrician.
  • Can handle several projects. Perhaps you have a faucet that needs replacing, an outlet that needs to be changed out, and a bedroom that needs to be painted.  Instead of trying to find and coordinate with a reliable Shelby AL plumber, electrician and painter, an experienced handyman can handle all of those projects.
  • Save money on materials. When you hire a contractor, generally they supply the materials at a mark-up.  When working with a handyman, you supply the materials, saving you money.  And often an experienced handyman has connections that they have established with Shelby AL vendors offering them discounts that they can pass on to their customers.
  • The Go-To person for all home repair projects. The great thing about having the phone number for an experienced Shelby AL professional handyman is that you don’t have to think about who to call when the toilet leaks or the ceiling fan stops working.  You just call your guy (or gal) and they come over and take care of the problem.  And if the job is a little more involved than they can handle, they can usually recommend a “specialist” to take care of your more advanced plumbing, electrical or HVAC needs.

Is Hiring a Handyman the Right Choice For You?

We all have home repair or replacement projects that we keep putting off that a qualified Shelby AL handyman could take care of quickly and at a cost that is very reasonable and affordable.  So you no doubt agree that its more cost effective to have the project done once and right the first time by hiring a seasoned pro. Many handymen are skilled in several areas such as:

  • Door repair and installation
  • Drywall repair and installation
  • Painting and Plastering
  • Window repair or replacement
  • Minor plumbing or electrical services
  • Carpentry or Roof repair
  • Flooring installation and repair
  • Any general home repair, replacement or improvement

Steps to Hiring a Handyman

Shelby AL handyman painterBeing comfortable with and having confidence in your Shelby AL handyman is extremely important, especially since he or she will be working in your home or place of business.  The last thing that you want to do is hire someone who does not have the skills required to complete the project professionally or that will charge you more than the agreed upon price.  You also want someone who will stand behind his work.  So be sure to do your due diligence and follow these hiring guidelines when selecting and hiring your handyman.

  • Interview several prospects. As the song goes, you better shop around.  Be sure to speak with 3 or 4 candidates before making a selection.  Referral services, such as the one recommended on this website, can do the groundwork for you by providing pre-screened Shelby AL handymen.  Be sure to ask about their experience, areas of expertise and rates.
  • Clearly define the project. Make sure your prospective handyman understands the scope and all details of the project.  It is important to make sure that it is within the range of his or her expertise and experience and not more appropriate for a licensed Shelby AL contractor.
  • Ask for references. Get references from recent Shelby AL customers who have used the handyman’s services, for similar projects if available.  Ask if they were completely satisfied with the work performed as well as the cost of services.  Also ask if they would hire the handyman again for future projects.
  • Get Agreement and Guarantee in writing. Make sure the terms are spelled out in writing, to include all fees involved and any guarantees for workmanship.  Since you are paying by the hour it is not as critical to get the exact project cost up front, especially for small jobs.  But there needs to be a formal understanding regarding hourly rate and if the Shelby AL handyman stands behind his work.  And for longer projects, a start and completion date, along with estimated billed hours should be spelled out in writing before work begins.

    Shelby County, Alabama

    Shelby County is a county located in the central portion of the U.S. state of Alabama. As of the 2010 census the population was 195,085.[1] The county seat is Columbiana.[2] The county is named in honor of Isaac Shelby, Governor of Kentucky from 1792 to 1796 and again from 1812 to 1816.

    Shelby County was established on February 7, 1818, and it was named for the Revolutionary War hero and the first Governor of Kentucky, Isaac Shelby. Beginning in 1820, the first county seat was located at Shelbyville. This settlement, long defunct, was located within the modern city limits of Pelham. The first courthouse was built of logs. The seat was moved to Columbia, now Columbiana, in 1826. Initially housed in an old school building, a new brick courthouse building was completed in 1854. It is now known as the Old Shelby County Courthouse and houses the Shelby County Museum and Archives. The current limestone courthouse was built from 1905–06, at a cost of $300,000.[3]

    Shelby County was the home of an early inland waterway, the Coosa River, and it was also the location of a very early east-west railroad in Alabama that connected Atlanta, Georgia, with locations to its west. Shelby County was also crossed by an early north-south railroad, the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, that connected Louisville, Nashville, Decatur, Birmingham, and Montgomery.
