Any opinions on any of these? I need a farmer's porch rebuilt and the back of my house roof stripped and reshingled. Had a contractor who came out and tried to sell me a metal roof. I have 5 roofs and I think metal on 2 and shingles on 3 would look ugly. A handyman that lives down the street gave me a good price on both but he's not insured. BIG THING for me. Handyman is known in town, reliable (word of mouth) and lives down the street. I drove around and took a look at some of his work and he's not bad.
So...do I keep looking and go with a handyman, find a different insured handyman, or go with a contractor who will charge me about 9K more. I'm thinking current handyman gets insured or I go with a different insured handyman.
Handyman price = $6,000.
Big Guy price = $14,500.
