Rather it’s time to hire a handyman or it’s a handyman deciding who to work for. The best referral you have is from your gut.
Regardless of UHA certification you need to hire people that you feel good about. You get a sense of someone when you meet them or talk to them. A feeling about them that no referral can help you with. Just because your friend has a good experience with a handyman or contractor doesn’t mean that you will. Too many people hire someone because of a referral and then don’t understand why they don’t have the same warm and fuzzy experience. Because we all aren’t robots! We have different taste and personalities that don’t always mix well with each other. Sometimes people rub us the wrong way without any reason or explanation, no matter how well their work is the perception is blurred. I learned a long time ago that you can’t please everyone and in attempt you may not please anyone. Accepting the fact that not everyone is going to like you is a hard thing for some people to except but when you do, it allows you to surround yourself with like-minded people and the warm fuzzy experience is back for you as the homeowner and for the handyman or contractor. I recommend to the handyman and contractor to follow the same gut rather when it comes to who to work for or what job to take. to pay attention to their inner feeling. Sometimes walking away from a job is better than taking on a job that might go bad. Maybe it’s a job that they shouldn’t be doing, maybe they don’t have enough experience to take on that project. Be honest and talk your way out of the job and you will be appreciated more and receive more work from the trust you just built. Sometimes the person that is the hardest to be honest with is ourselves. So rather you are in the position of hiring or being hired, listen to yourself and go with your gut it never fails.
