Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of our most frequently asked questions when it comes to our handymen services. Let us know if you do not see an answer to a question here and we will be sure to address it or add it if needed!
How should I plan for a home improvement project?
It is always a good idea to have a plan for any home improvement project list. That way you can eliminate or add projects based on the estimated cost and how much you have budgeted for. Consider a ‘checklist’ before scheduling an appointment.
Take a few minutes and walk through each room in your house, then walk around outside. Make a list of all the repairs needed. This could be as simple as a leaky faucet to something a bit more substantial like putting a cover over your patio.
- Prioritize the list of concerns by jobs that you think might get worse.
- Be organized before you make the call. If you have your list of everything you want us to look at right in front of you it will be easy for our handyman to determine the size of the job.
- Decide if you will be able to afford all of the repairs at once or if you want them done in phases. If you do want them in phases, figure out which jobs you’d like completed first.
Once you make an appointment we will come out and see how big or small your jobs really are. Remember, we’re professionals so most of the time we can take care of a job faster than you might think.
What kind of remodeling is the most popular?
Kitchen remodeling is one of the most popular home improvement projects, delivering an average return on investment of 70%. Whether you’re an avid cook or a novice, planning your kitchen is one of the most valuable considerations when remodeling a home. It is one of the most trafficked areas of the house, and is considered the ‘center’ of the home for most families.
How can I determine what kind of budget I will need to remodel my kitchen?
A good rule of thumb for kitchen remodel budgeting is to allocate:
- 40-50% of your budget for cabinets
- 10-15% for flooring
- 20-30% for appliances
- 5-15% for lighting
- 20-25% for counter tops
