Need tips on collecting small claims judgement in Texas.

I recently won a small claims court case in Texas against an independent contractor for shoddy workmanship on my property. The court has issued its formal judgement in my favor, now it's time to (try) to collect around $5,000. I am looking for advice and experience with writs of garnishment and execution and turn-over orders. The clerk cautioned my that a writ of garnishment could actually end up costing me money if the defendant plays games with his bank account. Thanks in advance! By the way, for fellow Texans, this guide
educated me on the process and helped me a great deal.
