How to Choose a Qualified Handyman near Saraland Alabama

local Saraland AL handyman contractorsFinding a handyman near Saraland AL can be a cost effective alternative to doing a number of home repair or improvement tasks yourself that you have been putting off.  With overwhelming work and family responsibilities, it may be impossible to work on your list of home repairs, which can have a negative impact on the condition of your home.  A Saraland handyman is usually 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 eliminate costly mistakes you may make when installing a water heater, replacing a faucet, or putting in a new tile floor yourself.  There is nothing more annoying than having to hire someone to re-do the job after you have made a mess of it!  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 fixing something either in or outside of your home, consider the advantages of hiring a professional handyman instead.

Why Hire a Handyman Instead?

Saraland 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 Saraland 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 Saraland 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 Saraland 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 Saraland 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 Saraland 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 Saraland 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

Saraland AL handyman painterBeing comfortable with and having confidence in your Saraland 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 Saraland 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 Saraland AL contractor.
  • Ask for references. Get references from recent Saraland 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 Saraland 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.

    Saraland, Alabama

    Saraland is a city in Mobile County, Alabama, United States, and a suburb of Mobile. As of the 2010 census, the population of the city is 13,405. It is a part of the Mobile metropolitan area. Saraland is the third largest city in Mobile County.

    The land area that was to become the present-day Saraland, was included in a Spanish land grant to Don Diego Alvarez. Hence, descendants of Alvarez were the ones to give the community its first name: Alvarez Station. Later land squatters moved into the area and were able, legally, in 1800 to begin purchasing property. In 1807, a land office was opened in St. Stephens to handle all land transactions. Some of the pioneer families who seized the opportunity to buy up sections were named Alvarez, Rice, Hartley, Moore, LaCoste, Williams, Tool and Cleveland. Ultimately, Alvarez Station was called Cleveland Station. The present name of the city is reported to have been given by C.J. DeWitt, a retired minister editor who moved south in 1890 for health reasons. He opened the first post office on the Southern Railroad in 1895. The community is purported to be the namesake of his beloved wife, Sara.

    Saraland was sparsely populated during the first part of the 20th century, until an industrial and population boom occurred in neighboring Mobile. Northward expansion of Mobile in the 1940s and 50s brought about the incorporation of Saraland in 1957. At the time of incorporation, the city reported only 125 residents. By the 1960 U.S. Census, annexations had swelled the population to 4,595. In 1980, census figures cited 9,844 Saraland residents. Current census records report that as of 2017, Saraland's population is estimated to have grown to 14,576.
