We all know that the best way to find the right handyman is to have first-hand references from people you trust. Unfortunately, this isn’t always an option. If this is your case, your next step would be to check for ads. Start looking online, in the classifieds section of your local newspaper or in local hardware stores that allow handyman and general contractors to post their business cards on their bulletin board. Once you’ve narrowed down the search to a couple of candidates, make sure to research their online reputation and to interview them over the phone. Have your top candidates come in, check out the project and provide a written estimate. Once you’ve interviewed all of them and have compared estimates, you’re ready to make a decision. And, of course, if it works out, pass on his information to anyone who needs it.
