When you have a construction project, whether repairs or renovations, you have the options to do it yourself, hire a local handy man, or hire a licensed contractor. There are a few considerations when making the decision. You may know how to do the job, but it’s a matter of time and efficiency when you can work on it only in evenings or hire someone else to schedule it as a priority. A handy man may be able to do many jobs that come up, but likely doesn’t have the same experience and licensure as a general contractor. The contractor, in addition to the license and insurance, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the job to get it done quickly and efficiently the first time.
