Flagstaff and Prescott Handyman
Rosie on the House only refers contractors who have successfully made it through our rigorous prescreening process. We call the contractors we recommend "partners" because we believe they support our vision of being every Prescott homeowner's best friend. Like us, they're here to protect and serve homeowners. If you know any contractors who you think can pass our prequalification process, nominate them here, or have them fill out our prequalification form. Please note that filling out the form does not guarantee that the contractor will be accepted into our trusted Referral Network. In fact, fewer than 25 percent of contractors who fill out the form ever become Rosie on the House partners.
How can I teach my children to be ‘handy?’Have you noticed that fewer young people can diagnose and repair even simple, ordinary breakdowns, like a clogged toilet or a flat tire? Their lack of “handiness” is bound to land them in more than a few tight spots—and paying a lot of money to people who have these basic skills. See Rosie's suggestions for teaching your children trade skills.
I’m a woman who wants to be handier around the house. Where should I start?Most of us handymen and women started right where you are: without much of a clue. Like we were, you’re probably a little nervous that the roof will cave in if you hammer a nail into the wrong spot. It won’t. Bolster your confidence as a do-it-yourselfer by making your first jobs small ones that are more forgiving of the mistakes of a beginner. Some suggestions for beginner handywomen.
What kind of tools are right for women DIYers?Any woman knows it’s often quicker and easier to do something herself than to wait for, pay for or pray for someone else to help her out. So more women are becoming do-it-herselfers. If you’re a handywoman—or want to be—consider investing in lighter-weight tools designed to feel comfortable in a woman’s hand.
