Frequently Asked Questions

Is a handyman cheaper than a contractor?

There are a few differences between a handyman and a contractor. A contractor will typically have an administration team to handle your project. Accordingly this can add 20-30% to the overall cost of a project. Often times a contractor will segment portions of your job to other small business operators. As such, there may be a different company for framing, another for drywall, a third company for flooring and so on. This may be the best option for time sensitive projects that include structural changes, projects involving electric lines or plumbing pipes, as each of these trades require a separate license from the state of Illinois. A contractor will take on projects that can last 2-3 months or even years. A Handyman typically can handle all trades and will take on projects that can last 2-3 days or weeks.
