Advantadges Of A Handyman
Since there’s no law that says all contractors must be licensed, many entrepreneurial handymen have created their own businesses so they can take on larger home-building projects. Many perform contractor functions, yet they don’t call themselves contractors because they haven’t met national or regional licensing requirements.
Like contractors, they hire craftspeople or handymen, and manage the project for a percentage of the total project price. The advantage to using them is their hourly or project rates are usually less than those of licensed contractors.
That’s not to say that homeowners should stay clear of all unlicensed contractors and tradespeople. Many do great work but opt not to be licensed, which can be costly, so they can charge less than their licensed counterparts.
