BOZEMAN — As we’ve seen continuously with the coronavirus pandemic, many professional industries have had to adapt and look a lot different than they did previously.

MTN News spoke with a professional home repairman, who says the pandemic has forced his company to switch from doing jobs of luxury to doing essential maintenance.

Home repairs haven’t stopped due to the coronavirus, but it has caused Peter Ramos with Bozeman Handyman to be very selective with the services he offers.

“During the switch with COVID, we’re kind of focusing more of our business on helping people out on things that need to be done, more urgent matters or things that really can’t wait like water damage,” explained Ramos.

In addition to that, Ramos says he’s has had to downsize his team drastically.
