How to Avoid the Hassle of Home Repair

Jene J. Long

Finding a reputable service provider for home repairs can be a difficult and sometimes frustrating experience. You have to find tradesmen with the right skills, call various places to get quotes, compare prices, coordinate scheduling, and hope that the job will be done on time. It becomes even more challenging if you’re not sure what type of skills are needed.

When hiring a professional to do work in or around your home, there are several things you should confirm first:

  • Does this provider have the skills for the job? Make sure they have the right licenses and certifications. Are they insured? Without insurance, you may be at risk if anyone gets hurt on your property.
  • Do you have a detailed estimate? A comprehensive outline of everything to be included in the job will help prevent any surprises. Also, make sure all pricing is clearly defined to help protect you from unplanned expenses or the cost of the project escalating unexpectedly.
  • How are payments handled? Be wary of providers who require the full amount upfront—and walk away from anyone who only accepts cash.
  • Do they offer a workmanship warranty? What’s covered and what’s not covered? How long is the work covered? What are the terms if something fails during the warranty period?

Dealing with these home repair challenges can be a little overwhelming—but it doesn’t have to be.
