Considerations by Nedda
It surely is summertime, and it is a great time to visit neighbors, go for a walk and/or look at repairs that need to be done around the house. For those of us who own our homes, we always need to keep up with things. For those who live in apartments, etc., it can give peace of mind to have a list of phone numbers for emergencies.
It is hard for some to believe we can’t handle plumbing, carpentry chores and landscaping jobs anymore. But, with a few exceptions, it is not safe or wise for us to tackle most jobs. Your kids will be so glad I said this to you as well! Besides, it is great to sit in a lawn chair and watch.
Ask your friends who they use for service jobs, and keep a list. It will make you feel safer. When it is time, call and have them come to give you estimate in writing. They should be pleasant, respectful and offer the time frame when work will be done and if they have insurance. Use people in your own community, and check to make sure they have the required permits for your town or village. I have used out-of-town services, but local workmen recommended them. If you feel comfortable, check once more with a friend or family member and proceed.
