Repairman

The landlord is responsible for repairs in all types of apartment/condo/house rentals. As a

landlord, when you’re in need of a good repairman, you might be tempted to pick up the phone

book and call the first nearby repairman you see with a fancy ad. But if you fail to do your due

diligence you could potentially get ripped off, hire a contractor that does a shoddy job, or even

both. When you’re left with a broken sink and a few hundred dollars out of pocket, you’ll be kicking

yourself for not putting in more effort. With a little bit of research, you can easily find a dependable

contractor that will do a great job for a reasonable cost.

5 steps to finding the best repairman

Here are five steps to finding the best repairman for your home maintenance and repair needs:

Look In The Right Places.

One of the first mistakes people make in finding a repairman is going straight to the phone book or

Craigslist. Sure, you’ll find a lot of reputable contractors listed in these sources, but how can you

discern the good from the bad? There are several sites, such as Yelp, that offer user-generated

reviews on contractors in your area. Once you have selected a handful of decent options for

contractors, you can inquire any the Better Business Bureau to see if there have been any prior

complaints with the repairman or the company. You can also ask your local building or code

inspector who they does good work and is generally dependable.

Interview

Once you have compiled a shortlist of contractors that you may potentially hire, interview them

either in person or over the phone to see if they will be able to complete the necessary work.

Interviewing the repairman before agreeing to allow them to take on any home maintenance or

repair job will give you a greater piece of mind. It is important to ask the repairman about their

previous experience, what their expertise is, and whether they have done this kind of work before

for similar rooms for rent. If you live in a province or state where all contractors have to be licensed,

make sure you ask them for their license number for verification purposes. Finally, make sure you

get at least a couple of references so you can find out about the quality of their work from their

past clients.

Get An Estimate

Once you have narrowed down your search to a few candidates of whom you have received

positive referrals for, ask each contractor for a price and time estimate for the job. One way to

discern great contractors from the rest of the pack is if they provide you with a rough plan as to

what the job entails, including the cost of labour and materials, as well as the completion time.

Choose Wisely

Many tenants and homeowners make the mistake of selecting the lowest bidder or makes far too

many promises. This should automatically set off red flags. Contractors who charge significantly

less than their competitors or make numerous promises are typically too good to be true. The

contractor should provide you with a detailed plan of the home maintenance or repair job,

including the cost and timeline. You should also make sure that the contractor has insurance.

Stay Involved

Once your contractor starts the job your initial instinct might be to leave him be, but this could be

a fatal mistake. Stay as engaged as you can by observing their process, asking questions, and

making sure the work is not only being done but that is being done right.

Following these steps are sure to lead you to a dependable repairman. Alternatively, CirclApp is a

new desktop and mobile app that enables tenants and homeowners to find the perfect contractor.

Users can post their repair or home maintenance job in the online marketplace, which interested

local contractors can then bid on. Tenants and homeowners can browse through the profiles of
