PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – It’s almost home improvement season again.
Now, is a good time to assess if there’s any winter damage to your home and make plans for spring repairs.
Angie’s List offered some tips on how a handyman can help with your projects around the house.
Kris Wu keeps the number for her handyman handy when she needs things done around the house.
“Our handyman’s been very helpful and done a lot of work around our house. He’s done everything from staining decks to hanging picture frames, electrical work, building a shelf in my son’s bedroom, tiling floors,” Wu said.
“A handyman will typically charge by the hour, so you can aggregate a bunch of different little projects together and hire a handyman for the day,” Angie Hicks from Angie’s List said.
Here’s a money saving tip when hiring a handyman: Anything you can organize or purchase ahead of time may save you time and money.
“When you hire a handyman you want to be sure to check their credentials. For example, plumbing and electrical are typically required to have a license, so if you are having those trades done you want to be sure you check that,” Hicks said.
