The Top 5 Reasons to Hire Local Handyman Services

Does it feel like your weekends are spent tackling an endless list of insurmountable tasks? Being a homeowner is a lot of work, and it can feel like all your spare time is used to work on to-dos like light fixture installation and painting projects—but your list of repairs never seems to grow shorter.

Not to mention, there may be one or two tasks on your list that you don't have the tools or skills to do correctly, leaving you watching YouTube videos and wondering how you can remove the old flooring in your foyer so you can install the new tiles you've bought (that are still sitting in your garage).

Sometimes, the best option is to hire local handyman services. Even if you are able to tackle some items on your honey-do list alone, a professional technician will be able to save you both time and money—as well as provide a range of other benefits.

1. Required Experience

Even though you can likely tackle the odd job here and there, you're probably not a pro at everything. Many home improvement tasks require a lot of skill and expertise to execute properly. That's why it's important to hire a reliable handyman service. Trusting repair tasks to a professional means you avoid doing it wrong and wasting time and money trying to correct your mistake.

At Mr. Handyman of Arlington, each of our technicians are highly skilled, have years of industry experience and specialize in projects like carpentry, remodels, drywall installation, and general repairs. When you hire our team of experts, you can take it easy knowing your home is in the best hands.

2. Safety First

Many common home improvement injuries are preventable. Often, these accidents are caused by inexperienced homeowners falling from ladders, injuring themselves while using power tools or not wearing proper safety equipment like protective eyewear. When you hire professional handyman repair services, you can trust that all our technicians have been properly trained according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. While we can handle any job with the correct safety precautions, there are many ways you could get hurt while tackling your home improvement list, such as:

  • Falls: Installing light fixtures, cleaning gutters, and trimming trees all require a ladder, and when you use a ladder, you can fall and get seriously injured.
  • Cuts: Pressing too hard when using utility knives, pruners, and dull saws could cause your hand to slip and get cut.
  • Eye injuries: Dust, debris, and fumes that result from a DIY project can all damage your eyes, especially if you're not wearing safety goggles.
  • Falling objects: Watch out for loose shingles, metal, and bricks if you choose to complete roof and siding repairs, gutter repairs, or chimney maintenance.
  • Slipping: Any time you're working near a wet or icy surface you could slip and fall.

3. Reduces Stress

For many homeowners, repair and maintenance tasks can be stressful for a variety of reasons. You don't always have time to get them done between all your other responsibilities, and you likely don't have the skills and experience to make the process easy. Also, certain repair tasks can be a hassle to complete, disrupting your family's daily life.

How many times have you started a complicated project, only to leave it half finished for a couple of weeks because other things pop up? This only makes the task more stressful and time-consuming. When you hire a professional repair and maintenance service, you can relax knowing the job will get done efficiently and correctly the first time.

4. Saves You Time

When it comes to DIY tasks, it's common for homeowners to underestimate how long a task should take. If you haven't tried larger projects before, like refinishing your cabinets or painting your fence, you'll be less efficient because you're still learning. You might have to watch online tutorials or take a couple trips to the hardware store to get materials you didn't realize you needed.

Alternatively, when you hire a professional to tackle your improvement projects, you're investing in someone who knows exactly what they're doing. At Mr. Handyman of Arlington, we're passionate about home repair and maintenance tasks. It's our job to tackle a range of projects every day.

While you might not want to spend your free time patching drywall or installing a new door frame, we're always more than happy to take those tasks off your seemingly endless list of repairs. You get your time back, and we get to do what we do best.

5. Saves You Money

At Mr. Handyman of Arlington, we are your “one call does it all!” handyman service. We offer upfront, flat rates. With one appointment, we will maximize our time to strike off all the tasks on your list of repairs. Our service providers will work efficiently to get the job done while maintaining our dedication to quality service. Since we can tackle multiple jobs at once, you also save money because you don't have to hire multiple niche contractors.

Tools and Material Costs

Tools are expensive—especially power or specialty tools. Although tools are a worthwhile investment if you're handy, if you're not they will wind up collecting dust in your garage. It's very common for enthusiastic homeowners to buy expensive power tools that they never use again. Our team can also help you save money by ensuring the job gets done right the first time. By providing exceptional service, we won't waste your materials or have to re-do work that's already been done.
