Older people are most vulnerable to being treated unfairly by home improvement contractors…take it from one who knows first-hand
Glendale CO – HandyPro Handyman Service was born when founder, Keith Paul realized a need to raise the standards of quality in the home service industry. He was inspired to start his own home repair and renovation service when his grandmother was ripped off by a contractor.
Many different handyman scams have been documented in the news, making single homeowners and senior citizens uncomfortable about choosing and hiring a contractor. Even if they call a company based on a trusted recommendation, the contractor they send may not the same one that earned the referral. Many home improvement companies are advertised on the internet with impressive websites that boast honesty, reliability and professional workmanship, but most every home service provider claims these characteristics.
The local handyman (www.handymanglendaleco.blogspot.com/) suggests several tips to help consumers protect themselves from unscrupulous home service providers. They can start by doing a little research on the company using credible websites like the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List or Service Magic. If the handyman they are considering is not listed on any of these sites, chances are he cannot be trusted. All home service providers should at least be a member of the BBB to show they are reputable.
Consumers can also ask for a physical description of the contractor that will be sent. Does he drive a company vehicle with lettering and a logo? Will he be in uniform? If not, then it is important to at least know what he will be driving and how he can be identified.
Though the handyman may be licensed and bonded, it is not a good idea to leave them alone in the home. Take care to put valuables like jewelry and cash away. If possible, invite a friend or neighbor over for coffee to help keep an eye on things.
