Best Questions to Ask a Handyman Contractor
Are you insured and/or bonded for Small Projects and Repairs?
You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Utah, because that means that any incidental damage they may do on your property will be a real hassle to recover compensation for. It is never wise to work with uninsured tradesmen of any kind. Most states also require that someone have insurance in order to be issued a trade license. If they say they're licensed but not insured, they're being less than truthful.
Does the Small Projects and Repairs job require permits? If so, will you be pulling them yourself?
Many jobs in Utah 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 Woods Cross Small Projects and Repairs permits are required makes you appear to be a well informed customer.
How many contractors do you have working for you? How many vehicles are in your fleet?
This is important mostly for larger jobs. Clearly a two man operation is going to build a home much slower than a 15 man crew. This is also a good indication of the overall size of the Small Projects and Repairs company, if that's an area of concern for you. The reason you may want to ask about the fleet is that fleet size is a good indicator of the mobility of the company. Mobility may not sound important, but it's hard for the Woods Cross contractors to get to job sites if they lack appropriate vehicles.
Do you have any references that I can contact?
Always ask for references, and always check them. Keep in mind though that the only references you'll get are people who the contractor is certain will give him a good review. You'd also be well advised to check online review sources in Woods Cross as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
How long have you been in Small Projects and Repairs business for/How long have been serving the Woods Cross area?
You'll always want to ask how long the company has been in business in Woods Cross. 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.
