Fruit Cove is an ideal place to make a home. Highly-rated public schools, nice neighbors, a small-town feel, but with big-city amenities nearby. You’re surrounded by nature in this river city by the ocean.

But even with all the charm of the area, it can be difficult to pull yourself away from family life and the kids’ activities while still making time for your career. If you’re nodding your head in agreement, we hate to do this, but you’ll need to add that to-do list of home maintenance tasks as well.

If you feel the stress of obligations building up and you’re dismayed at the thought of spending time indoors toiling away with maintenance and repairs, we have the answer. Contact First Coast Home Pros. One text to (904) 712-2674 or call to (904) 383-7721 and you’ll work with one of our trusted craftspeople for all your home handyman needs.

When You’re Ready to Hire a Handyman

If you already know you could use skilled assistance with home maintenance and repair projects, it’s important to do your homework and find the right, qualified handyman for the job.

Ask Questions and Get References

Important questions include:

  • What is your license number?
  • What is the average timeline for similar work?
  • What kind of experience do you have?
  • Do you have examples of recent, similar work?

Be sure to follow up and check any references given. Remember, that your own family, friends, and neighbors are the best references, so check with your network to get a better idea of where to find a trustworthy and talented handyman.

Talk About Scope of Work

While you may have a particular project in mind you’d like a handyman to work on, it makes good sense to share your whole to-do list. Your handyman will let you know where they have experience, what they can or cannot take on, and can give you a better picture of how long it will take to remove those projects from your plate and how much it will cost.

Ideally, you can share your full list of items with the handyman and he or she has the background and ability to complete them all. Keep in mind, an individual handyman is often not a licensed plumber or electrician and will be unable to complete those tasks. A handyman service, however, may have a licensed plumber or electrician on staff or have industry connections they can quickly pull into your job, where necessary.

Ask About Permits

For the jobs you’d like done, discuss with the handyman if you’ll need to have permits pulled. If so, find out who is responsible for that. Often, handyman services can take care of this task for you as well.

When You’re Still Deciding if You Need a Handyman

Many of the homes in Fruit Cove are newer, so homeowners often think there is little to no major maintenance or repair necessary. Even high-quality, recently-built housing needs repair and maintenance. And there are plenty of projects to enhance the quality and value of your home that can be undertaken as well.

From installing “smart home” technologies and hanging TV, electronics, and technology mounts to repairing pet damage, a handyman is your trusted team member. No job is too big or too small for the First Coast Home Pros handyman team.

Utilizing a handyman for larger home projects or detail work like crown molding or wainscoting is a great return on your investment when it comes to your house. You spent a lot of time looking for the perfect home, made it your own, and it’s a large investment. Your time is also very valuable.

You’d never let your home investment fall into disrepair, and a savvy way to meet the needs of upkeep while saving your precious time is to work with a handyman.
