I have to tell you, no I won’t; my experience in trusting those who others rave about only cost me about $1,500. A real deal, 'cause that was enough for me to decide to leave my job.
I would not be so quick to trust. Keep a tight hand in the beginning and question everything. Once you have done that with three or four handys, you will be better equipped to pick the two and to set rates and parameters. What if the handyman decides you need to replace the roof?
OK, so it may not be that bad, but it is effective to be tough in the beginning and slack off, rather than to try it the other way.
You or your appointed are going to inspect the repairs at random and/or the complaints?
