5 Reasons to Hire a Professional Handyman in Columbia, MD

Most Columbia, MD homeowners and business owners want to keep their property in top-notch condition, but not everyone has the right tools and expertise—not to mention free time—to take care of all the repair, maintenance, and improvement tasks that are crying out for attention.

The solution is simple: hire a professional handyman to cross every nagging repair and desperately-needed improvement off your list. You wouldn't hesitate to hire a plumber to deal with a plumbing problem or a mechanic to fix your car; as such, your home maintenance issues need the superior workmanship and experience of a skilled handyman. The only difference is that while a plumber stays focused on your plumbing and HVAC systems, a handyman can take care of almost every other problem around your property, from holes in the drywall and rotting deck boards to bathroom remodeling and custom carpentry projects.

Not convinced? We'll explain five reasons why you and your Columbia, MD home can benefit from professional handyman services for a wide variety of projects and repairs, such as the popular services provided by Mr. Handyman of Greater Columbia and Eldersburg.

1. Extensive Experience

While anyone can search for DIY instructions online and take a crack at home repairs, it takes an experienced service professional to maintain the highest standards of workmanship. Unexpected problems often arise during repairs and renovations, and a handyman who's seen it all before will know how to think on their feet and come up with a solution—or avoid the issue in the first place by knowing the telltale warning signs that something's not right and addressing them before the damage worsens.

Our talented handymen have a minimum of 10 years of hands-on experience in the repair trades, and most of them are clocking in well past that number at 20 or 30 years of repair and improvement experience. They have the skill and knowledge to get the job done right and notice things that others may miss.

2. Prioritize Safety

When it comes to home improvement and repair work, there are dozens of pitfalls lying in wait for amateur DIYers that can cause serious, lasting injuries. These injuries often occur because inexperienced property owners simply don't have the training to know all the safety protocols they need to follow, leading to nasty falls from ladders, trauma from the improper use of power tools, and injury from a lack of safety equipment such as protective eyewear. Mr. Handyman ensures that all our service technicians receive ongoing safety training and take all necessary precautions to avoid hurting themselves or others.

3. Save Time

If you're attempting something you've never done before, it's very common to underestimate the time it will take you to get the task completed. It stands to reason that you'll work more slowly as you puzzle through the ins and outs of a project that you're trying for the first time—even tasks that appear simple on the surface, such as patching drywall or refinishing a deck, can take much longer than it seems like they should.

The other aspect of this is that inexperienced repair work often causes more problems than it fixes, and you may find yourself needing to redo parts of the project, or worse, the entire thing. You may even end up needing more repairs than when you started. Hiring a handyman will obviously save you the time you would have spent trying to do it yourself, but they'll also save you time by getting the job completed correctly so you can enjoy your home without disruptions.

4. Save Money

Doing it yourself only saves money if your time is worth nothing—and that's certainly not the case. Because Mr. Handyman of Greater Columbia and Eldersburg is your convenient one-call solution for all the handyman jobs on your to-do list, we can save you a lot of money by getting everything taken care of efficiently so there's no need to hire multiple specialized contractors to take care of this and that. Furthermore, we will save you money by tracing damage to its source and eliminating it, instead of just applying a simple band-aid fix that doesn't address the root cause of the problem and will require further repairs in a few weeks or months.

It's also important to keep tool and materials costs in mind. If you don't already have all the tools you'll need to finish up your project, you'll need to buy or rent them—and that's a huge expense. You'll need to buy materials either way, but a handyman who is practiced at their job will be able to avoid wastage and save you money by requiring the least possible amount of materials to get the job done.

5. Peace of Mind

When you invite someone into your home, you need to know that you'll have a safe, worry-free experience and your handyman will behave in a friendly, professional manner at all times. All of our service technicians are thoroughly screened with background checks and drug tests. They'll arrive in uniform, driving a marked van, so you know who you're dealing with.

They are also insured with general liability and workers' compensation, so in the unlikely event that something does go wrong, you won't be on the hook to cover costs. Our handymen have all their applicable state-level licenses as well, so you can rest assured that they have the ongoing training they need to work safely and adhere to all building codes.

Finally, we stand behind our workmanship with a Done Right Promise: if it's not done right, we promise to make it right. Our guarantee means that you never have to worry that you'll be unsatisfied with our services.
