Best Questions to Ask a Handyman Contractor
Are you union or non-union?
This really only matters if you have a preference, but it is good to ask. If you have a strong ideological belief about unions or nonunions, it's perfectly acceptable to make a decision based on the preference.
Does the Small Projects and Repairs job require permits? If so, will you be pulling them yourself?
Many jobs in Maryland will require municipal permits in order to be approved by the town's inspector. It's always good to ask who will be responsible for pulling those permits, and if you'll be expected to do it. You'll almost never be told to pull your own, but knowing that Gaithersburg Small Projects and Repairs permits are required makes you appear to be a well informed customer.
How long have you been in Small Projects and Repairs business for/How long have been serving the Gaithersburg area?
You'll always want to ask how long the company has been in business in Gaithersburg. While this isn't a guarantee that the company will do good work, companies with longevity on their side must be doing something right. That being said, there are newer companies that do great work. If the company is under three years old, ask where the owner was employed before and for how long. If he/she has a long history of employment, it's reasonable to infer that he or she decided to go into business for themselves after so many years of experience.
How much do I have to give as a deposit?
Some companies may require a 10% deposit, some may not require any. For larger projects, you'll almost always need to give a deposit, and it's good to ask how much the deposit will be before going forward with a project. The Gaithersburg contractor will know how much they need for a deposit when they've given you the estimate, so ask early.
