Best Questions to Ask a Handyman Contractor

How long have you been in Handyman business for/How long have been serving the Douglas area?

You'll always want to ask how long the company has been in business in Douglas. 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.

What is your projected timeline for the Handyman project in Douglas?

Though a standard question, it's important to ask. Most contractors will tell you how long they expect the job to take without you asking. If they don't volunteer that information, be sure to ask. It's also helpful to ask if that's a hard finish date, meaning that it's the definite finish date. If it's a soft finish date, it may be extended for any number of reasons.

Are you insured and/or bonded for Handyman?

You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Alaska, 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 Handyman job require permits? If so, will you be pulling them yourself?

Many jobs in Alaska 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 Douglas Handyman permits are required makes you appear to be a well informed customer.

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 Douglas as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
