There are a few Calgary handyman companies to choose from for your home repairs and it can tricky picking the right one. With infamous horror stories about contractors in Calgary, you need to make sure one that you 100% trust. Here are a few tips to follow for your research.

Professional website
In today’s world, we search for our home services and products online. When picking out your handyman contractor in Calgary, you want to look for a professional website. If the company’s website is cheap looking and disorganized, there could be a chance that the company will be built on the same set of standards.

Check online reviews
Another thing to look for when hiring your Calgary handyman is online reviews. Places like Google and Homestars are for finding reviews about the company you are about to hire. Here, you can read other people’s experiences with the handyman company. If there are poor reviews, you may want to read the company’s response to the poor reviews to see how they handle tough situations. If there are many poor reviews, you should probably move on to a different option. There are many great options out there, so be picky.  

Do they offer a free estimate?
When asking your handyman company for an estimate, it should always be free.  If the business doesn’t offer free estimates, call another one.

Are they insured?
Make sure to ask your handyman company if they have Liability Insurance of up to two million dollars, are bonded for material deposits and are covered by Workers Compensation. They should have all these necessary documents that will help protect your home and project if it does not go smoothly.

Check their rating
Our last tip for when you are hiring your Calgary handyman service, is to do a company check on the Better Business Bureau’s website. If they are a reputable establishment, they will show an A+ rating.  This means the company is established and has a perfect record.
