Our skilled team is focused on getting your home fixed fast, and fixed right - give us a list of things and we can complete them all in the same visit.

How much does a Fixer visit cost?
We charge $94/hr for labor with a one hour minimum, and we prorate by the minute - you only pay for the time we spend working. We can also shop for the correct materials needed and help to special order items like doors and light fixtures for a reduced fee.
How does a Fixer visit work?
Simply book online at fixer.com or text us at 312.216.5999 and we will respond instantly to review your needs, give you an estimate and schedule an appointment at your convenience. Your Fixer will arrive ready to review the job with you, and will once again confirm your estimate before beginning work in the same visit. You will receive updates as the work progresses and before/after photos once the work is done. It’s our goal to leave your home better than when we arrived.
Can I get an estimate?
Yes. When you contact us and text us your photos, we can help provide ballpark estimates for most common household repair tasks, which we reconfirm in person upon arrival to start the work. Unlike the other folks, we like to get to work as soon as you’re happy with the estimate - most of the time that’s the same day!
Are you licensed, bonded, and insured?
Yes We are licensed, bonded and insured General Contractors in the cities of Chicago, Oak Park, and Evanston. The safety of you and your home is of our greatest concern.
Is your work high quality? How can I be sure?
All Fixers go through weekly continuous standardized training in all common home repair areas including plumbing, electrical, drywall, painting, installation and general problem solving/troubleshooting. As well, we are also constantly updating our skills as technology emerges (like smart devices) and reinforcing safety in the home. Whether it is a new graduate of our training center, or a Fixer with years of experience, we are a continuous learning team.
Do you stand by your work?
Yes we do. We don’t stop until you are completely satisfied. If you have any issues at all, our Concierge team is standing by - just let us know and we’ll make it right.
What kinds of home repair work do you do?
You’d be surprised at how many things we can fix in your home. Plumbing, electrical repairs, installing and repairing doors, mounting TV’s and shelving, assembly, lighting, drywall, you name it! We can do most of these things within the same visit!
