Is a handyman or contractor best for your home project?

Making repairs around the home can be a daunting task, so often it's best to call in the experts.

But who should you call? Both handymen and contractors specialize in home repair and improvement.

According to Angie's List, if your project is small or you just need a little help with a project, call a handyman. A handyman's work should be done in just a couple of hours.

If you're looking to remodel your kitchen or add another room to your home, you should hire a contractor. Contractors specialize in big projects that often take weeks or even months to complete.

Before you hire anyone, get recommendations from friends and family.
