Did he ask what type of razor? (electric, straight, safety, etc.) What brand of razor? (Gillette, Schick, etc.)
Is it relevant what kind of razor you did/do use?
Was the contractor working on your individual apartment? On your apartment building?

Did he ask what type of razor? (electric, straight, safety, etc.) Yesish What brand of razor? (Gillette, Schick, etc.) No.
Is it relevant what kind of razor you did/do use? It was relevant to him, not to this puzzle.
Was the contractor working on your individual apartment? Yes. On your apartment building? He was working in other units too, but this puzzle would work if it were just mine.

Did he want to borrow a razor? Did he want to shave? To use one for a different purpose? Relevant what he worked with? Did he want to cut something? Shave something? Did he need a shim?

Did he want to borrow a razor? Did he want to shave? To use one for a different purpose? No to all. Relevant what he worked with? As in which tools? No, but the work he did is relevant. Did he want to cut something? No. Shave something? No. Did he need a shim? I had to Google what this is, but no.

Does "razor" refer to a razor that you use on your face?

Does "razor" refer to a razor that you use on your face? Yes, though what part of my body I shave with it isn't really relevant. Is the contractor a plumber? No. clogged drains No. / pipes A pipe is somewhat relevant, but not a clogged one. relevant?

Was the contractor a carpenter? an electrician? a painter? an exterminator? a technician? a cleaner?

Was he there to install something? fix something? upgrade something? remove something? clean something?

Was the contractor a carpenter? an electrician? a painter? an exterminator? a technician? a cleaner? None of these, really.

Was he there to install something? Yope/yesish fix something? Yes. upgrade something? No. remove something? clean something? In a way, these are both accurate.
