a kitchen, bathroom, or basement, a licensed contractor is the individual you will contact to get the ball rolling. Unlike a handyman, these professionals have to keep up with licensing requirements and consider the big picture of construction projects.

In most cases, a licensed contractor will have the assistance of a team of people, which varies depending on the project. For example, if the contractor needs to work on a kitchen renovation he will need to have a plumber and a cabinet installer at the very least, and most likely he will also have the help of an electrician, a floorer and some demolition crew members. On the other hand, if a home entertainment center is being installed for a basement renovation, the contractor will probably just need an electrician, a builder, and a floorer.

When it comes down to doing the actual work, the licensed contractor will typically be on the sidelines. Think of the contractor as a kind of coach, and the formation of his team depends on the project that he needs to work on. If the project is something that one man can handle, it is probably not right to be contacting a licensed contractor.

The bottom line is that a licensed contractor is really someone reserved to performing full projects or renovation jobs rather than single tasks. They will usually carry much larger insurance policies, and give you a much more detailed plan. At the same time, the service of a licensed contractor is understandably much more expensive than those of a handyman.

Very Different Roles

In all reality, a handyman doesn't have any real measurable qualifications. Instead, he or she is simply performing a repair or maintenance task that he or she has been accustomed to doing. Like the name would suggest, a handyman is handy, but he does not necessarily have any more skills than you do. Rather, he is a great set of hands should you want to undertake a small project without devoting any of your own time.

On the other hand, a contractor is licensed and has knowledge of a variety of large-scale projects. These contractors are trained professionals who are going to be fully insured and ready to tackle those projects that a handyman simply cannot help with. Sometimes, this contractor will work alone, and sometimes he will have a team to back him up.

Ultimately, the easiest way to decide whether you need a handyman or a licensed contractor is to look at the scope of your project. If you are considering a simple task that you could perform yourself, you definitely do not need a contractor, and in some cases the insurance that a contractor holds will not even cover should he mess up in this capacity. Instead, if you are looking to do a major renovation, a handyman will typically not even be qualified to help with your project.

Always keep the key differences in mind whenever you consider hiring any service professional. When you need a quick job done, hire a handyman. When you need a large project, consider a contractor. In the end, just remember that one does not equal the other, so choosing the right one can make a difference.
