By Mike Gilbert

Tell us a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

North Carolina's Handyman has been in business for over 10 years. We offer roofing, siding, windows, gutters, heating & cooling, painting, kitchen and bathroom remodeling just to name a few.

What are some of the most common home repairs that people put off fixing?

One of the most common things people put off fixing around the home is leaky plumbing fixtures. That old laundry tub faucet that leaks, even more common is the hose spigot.

Can you give an example of when putting off a home repair might be dangerous or end up costing more money?

When a homeowner neglects to paint the house until the paint starts to peel will cost more when they do decide to fix it. Waiting to hire a licensed electrician to take care of that old outlet or switch that tends to get hot could result in fire.

Are there any home repairs or remodels that the average homeowner should not attempt to do on their own?

Anything involving electrical wiring or gas lines. Too often homeowners get hurt from their lack of knowledge about the a skilled trade.

What are some house repairs or projects that can be more challenging once you start them?

I would say the biggest mistake I see is when inexperienced homeowners try to remodel their kitchen or bathroom. Sure you think your saving money until a professional gets a look at it.

What advice can you give to help homeowners choose a reliable general contractor?

Always get 3 estimates, whether you like the price or not. Do your research on the company you plan to hire. Ask questions. This is an interview after all and you're the boss.

What's the best way for people to contact you and your company?
