Hiring help for your home

Unless you are a trained home mechanic that can do it all, you will at least once in your life have to call upon the assistance of a specialist. Mrs. Dollar and I had to do several upkeep repairs to our home when we first bought it.

In the article, it mentions to assess your skillset and evaluate what you can and cannot do. A friend of mine helped me with my airducts in selecting the correct size, shape and how to complete getting rid of the 25 year old ones in the home. It wasnt that tough when he broke it down and explained it to me. On the other hand, something like plumbing.... simply greek to me. I hired a very reputable guy in the area who has been nothing but a blessing as far as knowledge. I always love to hang around and try to soak in as much info as possible. Most contractors or maintenance workers dont want to be bothered or interrupted. Those hired hands will in fact not be the ones I call back.
