What I am about to say could shock a lot of people and it could even be something that very few people think. Would you like to go to a dentist to buy a car? Most of the time, when we were thinking of buying a car, we would go to a car park or check our local newspaper.
When it comes to hiring a home repair specialist, I'd like to give you a little advice. You have to hire someone who is familiar with home repair and this seems to be the biggest problem with homeowners looking for home repair contractors.
Most of us will call a plumber if we have a water leak. Some of us even call a roofer if we have a roof leak, but few people manage to contact the right person for home repairs.
I am the person they call, when the home repair specialist does not seem to work as they thought they would do it. I am the person they call, a few years after the poor home repairs were done by a so-called professional in the construction industry.
Just because someone says they can do something, does not mean that they can actually do it. If you are going to hire a parent or someone from the neighborhood who is doing repairs on the side, you could end up paying double for the same home repair in the future.
Here is my suggestion, hire someone who is able to do these home repairs and specializes in them. You will save yourself a lot of grief in the future by hiring someone who understands the process of building home repairs.
