Your home is one of the largest investments you'll ever make. You should enjoy years of happiness in it. But just like everything else, a home needs regular maintenance and repair to keep it at its best.

This is where Alameda County home repair services come in. With many local handyman services, one call does it all. Hiring a professional handyman for your home meets your needs for home repairs and home maintenance while giving you peace of mind that the job is being done right the first time.

Before you hire a handyman service in Alameda County, including those that serve Oakland, Fremont, Hayward, Berkeley, San Leandro or your area keep these items in mind:

  • A definition of a handyman is a person that can do the job you need done around your home.
  • A handyman is not necessarily capable of doing everything. If you pressure a handyman to do work he isn't comfortable with, you may be disappointed.
  • We often think of handymen as part-timers looking to supplement their income. However, that is no longer true. Handymen come in all ages, sizes and sexes. Handywomen are becoming quite common in the home maintenance profession. These are professional, hardworking home improvement specialists and many make their living through this work.

Top Five Actions You Should Take To Get Your Alameda County Home in Shape
Whether it's springtime or early fall, it is important to keep your home in tip-top shape. Following is a list of the top five actions you as a homeowner should take each year to get your home in pristine condition:

  • Install or Clean the Gutters
    This one single action will extend the life of the roof, soffits, and fascia of a home.
  • Repair Window Frames
    In order to let in some fresh air and cool breeze, get your window frames repaired.
  • Power Washing Services
    If you want to increase your curb appeal, get the house, deck, and patio furniture professionally power washed. This will reduce wear and tear, and it will also make everything look as good as new.
  • Repair Decks
    Carefully inspect the deck to determine areas that need attention. Are nails exposed or the surface splintered? Are the railings solidly fastened? Is there framing that needs to be replaced?
  • Repair Wood Rot
    Wood rot is often an indication of underlying damage caused by water that is leaking behind the siding or between the seams. Many times, rotting and leaking began years before and has been hidden from sight. It is important to find the source of the problem and fix it before it does permanent damage.

Rules to Follow When Hiring a Handyman in Alameda County
There are a lot of handyman home repair service companies available in Alameda County, including the larger cities of Alameda, Union City, Pleasanton, Newark, and Dublin. It is important to know what you want so that you can ask the right questions and hire the right company for you.

There are many handyman companies with a tremendous range of skills so you can't assume anything. You want to know that they are capable of doing quality work on your specific home repair project. Once you recognize that you are in need of a handyman service, keep the following in mind when you begin your search.

  • Have a Clear Idea of What You Want
    Be sure to know exactly what you want so that you are prepared to ask the right questions. This will help you hire intelligently. Before you make the first phone call, get together a list of everything you want done. This will help you decide if the company you are hiring will do enough of the work to making hiring them worthwhile.
  • Choose a Diamond Certified Handyman Home Repair Service Company
    Consider hiring a Diamond Certified handyman home repair service company in Alameda County. All handyman home repair service companies that have earned Diamond Certified have passed a rigorous ratings process, including license verification and interviews of a random sample of actual customers.
  • Develop a List of Prospective Handyman Companies in Alameda County
    Many successful handyman companies do not advertise, so it may not be in your best interest to peruse your local newspaper for home repair classifieds. Many quality home repair companies find themselves overwhelmed with new business and the result is that they stop actively promoting themselves. They get plenty of business from networking-referrals from multiple sources. So how do you find these quality handyman companies? Ask at local lumberyards, hardware stores, or condo associations. Many of these associations or businesses keep lists of handyman companies that they refer. But the best way to start your search is to receive a referral from a trusted friend or relative. This type of referral simplifies the screening process significantly.
  • Check Out References
    Though requesting references isn't quite as vital when you hire a handyman home repair service company that has been referred from a trusted friend or family member, it is vital if you pick your handyman company through advertisements in newspapers, the Internet, or mail. Remember: you are inviting this person into your home. It is critical that they are trustworthy.
  • Ask Questions About the Alameda County Handyman's Abilities and Experience
    Before hiring a handyman company, be sure to ask how many years they have been in business or what their favorite repairs jobs are. It is valuable to know if this handyman company has abilities in the crafts that you need accomplished.
  • Licensing and Registration
    Every state has different rules regarding licensing and registration for home repair contractors. All handymen are expected to follow these rules. In order to determine the licensing requirements for your area, call your local town hall or building inspector. Then make sure that your handyman company of choice is in compliance with all required licenses and registrations.
  • Pricing
    Be sure to ask how the handyman company prices his work. Does he provide free estimates? Does he charge by the hour or half hour? Is there a minimum charge? Be sure to take notes of each company's responses to these questions so that you can compare handyman home repair service companies after you have done your research. However, it is important to remember that when you compare handyman companies, the hourly rate can be a reflection of experience, popularity, and overhead costs. Don't make your decision on cost alone.|
  • Liability Insurance is Not an Option
    Though the job may be small, a tiny mistake may lead to a big disaster. It is critically important that your handyman company of choice has some sort of liability insurance coverage. It is acceptable for you to request proof of insurance.
  • Consumer Complaints
    Be sure to call the local Chamber of Commerce, Better Business Bureau, or the state licensing agency to see if there have been any complaints or violations filed against your handyman home repair service company. To be fair, however, many complaints filed by consumers are not really serious. Often they are either misunderstandings or "power plays." Be sure to view the complaints objectively while considering the circumstances. Complaints do not necessarily indicate an unreliable handyman company.

If you can't find a Diamond Certified handyman home repair service company within reach, you'll have to do some research on your own. If you do, it's wise to call some references provided by your handyman home repair service company. Keep in mind, though, that references provided to you by the handyman home repair service company are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process. That's because references given to customers from companies are cherry-picked instead of randomly selected from all their customers. So the contractors will likely give you a few customers to call that they know are satisfied.

If you do call references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the handyman's 10 most recent customers. This will help avoid them giving you the names of only customers they know were satisfied.

  • Were you satisfied with the service from the (handyman / home repair service company)?
  • If you need your home repairs in the future, will you consider going back to this home repair service?
  • Would you recommend this handyman or home repair service to your family and friends?
