(WDEF) If you have a long honey-do list hiring a handyman can be a great way to finish it quickly.
Homeowner Kris Wu said, "Our handyman's been very helpful and done a lot of work around our house. He's done everything from staining decks to hanging picture frames, electrical work, building a shelf in my son's bedroom, tiling floors."
A handyman will typically charge by the hour. So your best bet is to bundle a bunch of little projects together and hire a handyman for the day.
Dan Higgins works as a handyman. He said, "When we meet with the customer primarily we take a look at they want to have done, then we develop our own list of materials, we go to the stores and buy all that and bring it to the job. They don't need any tools, they don't need any supplies. We take care of all of that."
Angie Hicks of Angie's List added, "When you hire a handyman you want to be sure to check their credentials, but remember it will be dependent on the job they are doing and it's going to be dependent on your city and state. For example, plumbing and electrical are typically required to have a license so if you are having those trades done you want to be sure you check that.
Anything you can organize or purchase ahead of time may save you time and money.
