What's the difference between a contractor and a handyman?

 

The answer is simple. While a handyman is just as capable at accomplishing a range of home repairs, they have no need to meet any state regulations. A contractor means that they have been licensed or registered by the state. Contractors have passed exams and met all criteria to prove competency in a trade! They often have liability insurance as well. 

 

How do you know whether you need a contractor or a handyman?

 

The difference in price will be there, so what jobs are worth investing in a contractor for?  This answer is as straight forward as it gets. The bigger and more complex the project, the more likely you will need a contractor. Yet, for smaller home jobs that you can't do yourself, such as patching a hole or fixing a fence, a handyman is a great, cost-effective option!

 

Let's talk our platform. JobJar has many of both handymen and contractors, so how do you know which is which? 

 

Contractors have a "verified" icon on their profile: a check mark beside their name and a reassurance under their profile picture. This means we have ensured that they have licensing and a full background check!
