You would never allow a kindergartener to perform major surgery on you, so why, then, would you let Handyman Hank undertake a vital operation on your home? I don’t mean simple projects that the average do- it- yourselfer can manage; what I’m talking about are significant ventures that should only be embarked on by trained professionals, such as replacing windows, doors, roofing, siding, as well as substantial plumbing and electrical tasks.
There’s a reason municipalities require permits and inspections for major home renovations. It’s because they can impact the health and safety of your family and the structural integrity of your home. And that’s exactly why you should never trust that work to the guy who works out of his garage, or his van, and goes around sticking homemade flyers on doors claiming he can perform any home improvement project you may need.
Now, for the record, I’m not saying every contractor who works out of his home is unreliable and should not be hired. In fact, I personally know a few licensed contractors who have always worked from home and have been in business for years. That’s because they are very good at the work they do, and they have sense enough to know what kinds of work they cannot perform. That’s why they are licensed, insured, and are willing to provide references and anything else you may need to assure you that you can depend on them. And, that’s why they will tell you when they can’t do something, and will usually know who to recommend to complete your project right.
