Handyman vs. Contractor: Which Should You Hire for Home Repair?, Morgan, Ohio

Both contractors and handymen are able to handle home repair projects, so which is the better option for your Cincinnati, OH, home? Affordable Handyman, the most reliable home improvement service in the Tri-State area, is here with some guidance on how you can decide which type of home repair professional to hire for your projects.

Deciding between a handyman and a contractor really comes down to the scope of the project. Many times, handymen can do it all, from drywall patching to electrical wiring. If your project is highly specialized and requires specific licenses and certifications, a contractor is the way to go. However, consider a general handyman if your home repair falls into one of these categories:

  • Electrical-Wiring-Cincinnati-OHElectrical Wiring: Some handymen shy away from electrical work, but others have the required tools and skills to do general home electric repairs, such as replacing bad wires or installing new electrical wiring. Simply ask your handyman about their electrical wiring experience before having them come out for the home repair.
  • Drywall Patching: If the walls in your home are damaged, a handyman is more than capable of fixing them. Fixing a hole or crack, plastering, painting, wallpapering, and even replacing drywall are all projects that a handyman can do with ease.
  • Faucet Repair: For a leaky faucet, call a handyman. You might not think the water dripping from your faucet is a big deal, but this calculator proves otherwise. Just one leaky faucet that drips 5 times per minute wastes as much as 173 gallons of water per year. A handyman can help you avoid that water waste with a quick faucet repair.

Before you jump straight to paying for a specialized contractor, consider giving Affordable Handyman a call. From roofing inspections to gutter cleaning and picture hanging, the home improvement service company is a jack-of-all-trades for any home project, big or small.
