Depending on how complex the job is, and the extend of damage you may have to hire a professional contractor or a handyman, which may be cheaper than going the DIY route.

Some contractors and handymen will charge by the hour. For a small job, this will often be the cheaper option. On average, a handyman charges from $50-65 an hour, while a licensed contractor charges $75-90 an hour.
To find the best deal, we suggest you contact at least 4 local contractors and get a price for your project. This allows you the opportunity to see which one is on target and which one is not. However, try not to use the cheapest one, as the corners cut will not become known to you until it is too late.
