How Do I Know Which Orange County Handyman Is Right for Me?

 
 
Every now and then, you may need a little help around the house with repairs or maintenance issues. Sometimes it's just too difficult to do all the projects and jobs you have on your own. There is no need to worry. A handyman can help!

Handymen visit your home to fix things that you may not have the knowledge or ability to do yourself and there are so many professional handymen out there you can hire. But it is important to pick the one you are comfortable with and someone you think can do the best job. It's also important to note that not all handymen are carpenters, electricians,
 
or plumbers. Some confine their works to clearing brush, pool cleaning, yard work, mowing grass or general outdoor maintenance instead of indoor home repairs.
Here are some tips on hiring the right Orange County CA handyman for the job:

1. Take time to interview several home contractors in Orange County before making a hiring decision. A handyman will be working closely with you in your home so you want to pick one that you feel comfortable around.

2. Clearly define the project. Start by compiling a list of the home repairs you would like completed and have it in writing. Be clear about the times you expect the work to be started and completed. It's extremely important to get all guarantees in writing.

3. Ask around. Neighbors who would have had similar jobs done are always a good place to ask for handymen recommendations. Friends and family are also good resources too. Ask about years of experience and areas of specialization. Always make sure the potential handyman has the skills and experience to complete your project.

4. You'll want to avoid handymen who contact you with unsolicited phone calls or audacious visits to your home. You should also avoid any handyman who asks for payment upfront. Reputable handymen don't expect to get paid before the project is completed.

5. Ask for a guarantee. Many handymen will guarantee their work for up to one year. Ask about guarantees before you make a hiring decision, and of course, also make sure the guarantee is in writing.

6. Inspect the completed work before making payment. Make sure that everything has been done to your satisfaction and at the agreed upon price. Again, all reputable handymen will be happy to explain the finished work because they want you to be satisfied.

Remember, a handyman is best utilized for small jobs such as installing light fixtures. If the job requires pulling a permit, or moving plumbing or electrical wiring, you should consider hiring a contractor.

Choosing the Right Tile for My Orange County Kitchen or Bathroom

 
When it comes to choosing tile for your kitchen or bathroom, the overload of selection makes what should be an exciting decision seem daunting. With a such a wide variety between sizes, material, glazes, hand crafted or factory made, Italian or French, it is overwhelming! Well, there's good news. We've got some tips for you to consider. Here's how to choose the right tile for your bathroom or kitchen remodeling project.
Consider the Application
When beginning the tile installation process, a consideration for the application must be contemplated. What surfaces are going to be covered? Are they floors, counter tops or walls? Fragile materials like glass are recommended for walls or backsplashes. Materials known for their durability such as stone, ceramic or bamboo can be used for floors or counter tops where there's much traffic.
 
 
Consider What Size of Tile You Need
This is usually the first question that pops into your mind before making your selection. In theory, tile does come standardized sizes but it shouldn't be an issue since it can be cut into smaller pieces at any time. However, this should be considered in order to save time and money. The time your tile layer will take to cut down bigger slabs of tile could have been used for something more important. Moreover, if planning to install tile at a more expensive price point, you might lose some of it during the cutting process. Deliberate on the size of tile you'll need for the space and check with your tile dealer in the event of you need a customize size.
Consider Your Budget
The cost of tiles will vary depending on the material, size, shape and special preferences. Its important to note that the tile won't be the only item in your budget, so choose wisely. A carefully thought out budget that has a reasonable sum for your chosen tile and installation cost will always keep you within budget.
