I am positive that everyone has heard of the term Handyman Service. What is a general idea of what this type of service consist of? I would say a little carpentry to fix a door or cabinet, maybe some touch up painting or even something as small as installing mini blinds or fixing a faucet. A handyman does so many things if you ask around you will get as many answers as the people you ask.
When searching for a Handyman Service to do minor jobs most go for anyone licensed or not, but does it make much difference if they are a licensed business? What happens if they fall off a ladder or gets hurt doing your job on your property? Who do you suppose gets to pay the bill? What if you have a project that needs to be completed such as a simple remodel or finishing work that requires a licensed professional? Will this unlicensed, uninsured person cause your insurance to become void if something happens? The answer is if your handyman is not insured or licensed you could be stuck with a big bill. It’s always good to check with the state you’re in and find out what they require by law, just to cover all your bases.
