How Long Does It Take For The Average Repair?
In this thrilling episode of the Check A Pro Radio Show, we get to meet with Mike Gidich, the lead handyman from Honeydude’s Handyman Services. As our resident expert, Mike brings invaluable insights to those who own homes and require multiple handyman services. During this riveting chat, Mike courageously takes on the controversial question; "How Long Does the Average Repair Take to Complete?" This is a common question from homeowners, but answering it isn't as straightforward. Mike expresses the complexity of each job change due to the variability of customer needs and unique job circumstances. He further elaborates on the significance of conducting a proper evaluation before issuing a definitive timeline for repair completion. This detailed assessment ensures that all the client's concerns are addressed - from keeping pets away to moving furniture or laying down runners in the house. So, homeowners needing repairs must understand that without an evaluation, it would be impossible to provide an accurate timeline. Mike also dialogues on instances where homeowners request quotes over the phone and how that might lead to misconceptions about the project's scope. He emphasizes that throwing prices over the phone might lead to misunderstandings, thus it is best to see things in person. In summary, providing quotes after properly evaluating the job ensures a win-win situation for both the handyman and client.

Does Honey Dudes Have A Written Contract?
In this episode, Mike Gidich from Honey Dudes joins us to discuss the importance of clear expectations and written agreements in handyman services. Mike elaborates on the methodology adopted by his team, where technicians go to the house, explain the proposed tasks, and draw up a written document detailing the job scope, agreed-upon price, and any potential issues that might arise. This document serves as a contract or agreement, ensuring that both the homeowner and the handyman are on the same page before the work commences. Mike emphasizes that such a contract not only protects his company but also safeguards the homeowner. He highlights his firm's departure from the clichéd image of a handyman who operates on a verbal agreement and insists on cash payments. Instead, Honey Dudes promotes professionalism, using written contracts and adopting a more organized and transparent working model. The conversation also takes a look at the wide scope of a handyman's work and the importance of recognizing their limitations. Mike points out certain tasks his team deliberately avoids, such as garage door or furnace repairs or serious plumbing issues, directing clients to licensed professionals in these specific areas. The episode wraps up with Mike thanking the host for providing a platform to share these important aspects of the handyman business culture.   Listen to this episode of the Check A Pro Radio Show to learn more about navigating home improvement projects, and make better-informed decisions for your home renovations.

Does Honey Dudes Handyman Do Light Remodeling?
In this episode of the Check A Pro Radio Show, host Check A Pro Joe discusses an important question many homeowners face: Whether to assign remodeling work to a handyman or hire a full kitchen remodeling company. Our special guest is Mike Gidich from Honey Dudes, who shares his insights on this matter. Mike explains that while his team does handle light remodeling such as bathroom updates, converting bathtubs to showers for elderly homeowners, and minor shifts like moving a small wall or rearranging a laundry room, they prefer to leave full-scale kitchen remodeling projects to specialist contractors. This way, they can focus on honing their skills in specific areas and maintain the high-quality service that their customers love. Homeowners often request Honey Dudes for remodeling work because of their previous excellent experiences with the team. Mike underscores the importance of being honest with clients in these situations. It’s essential to acknowledge where their competency lies and where it doesn't. He reminds homeowners that specialists ensuring properly measured and special-ordered cabinets are the prerequisite for successful kitchen remodeling. According to Mike, handyman services are ideal for general tasks, but for high-end kitchens, bathrooms, or new roof installations, it’s safer to trust the professionals specialized in these fields. With his well-reputed repute, Mike emphasizes that it's not about saying 'yes' to all requests but about delivering the best quality work in areas they have mastered.
