Can you give me some advice on how to hire a decent handyman? -Zeb

When hiring someone to work on your home, start by asking how many years they’ve been in business, how they price their work, and if they provide a free estimate. It’s also important to be sure they carry liability insurance. If not, you may be responsible for any medical expenses—or more—if they are injured on the job. Get a complete description in writing of all the work that will be done and exactly how much it will cost. Remember, some jobs are best left to professionals who specialize in the field.
