Do I need a Contractor or Handyman?

In the Sarasota area, contractors can be very expensive.  Many times the job you need to be done is minor. A handyman can save you money on these types of projects. However, knowing who to call for the job can be confusing. The Handy Brit Handyman Services can help you identify when to give him a call and when you need to hire a contractor.

First, keep in mind that specialized trades, such as plumbing, HVAC, or electrical work, require a licensed contractor. Check with your local building inspector to see if the job you have in mind requires you to pull a permit and hire a contractor with a license. 

The Handy Brit, LLC is a professional and fully insured company a worked as an Electrical Engineer prior to becoming a Handyman. He can perform general maintenance and repairs, some cosmetic improvements, and is trained in digital technologies to increase safety, security, and protect your assets with all types of digital home security programs.

When to Call a Contractor

Contractors have a lot more overhead expenses they need to cover. This is one of the many reasons they charge much more for jobs that a Handyman can perform at a better price. Contractors should be hired for major renovations that would include, changing plumbing systems, adding electrical services, and installing new HVAC systems. Taking down load-bearing walls, pouring foundations, and rebuilding major structures are all jobs for licensed and insured contractors. 

One way to decide if you need a contractor or handyman is based on the size of a job.  If you are looking for some trim repair, painting, new floor installation, or carpet removal a handyman is all you need. If your project is on a much larger scale and will require extensive changes and plans then you will need to hire a contractor. Remember, different jurisdictions have different laws on the size of jobs a handyman can do. So when in doubt, contact your local building inspector.
