Pay for the Time You Use
Your Fixer’s time is prorated to the minute after a one hour minimum. So, if your job takes 1 hour and 5 minutes to complete, you only pay $101.83. Certain jobs require more than one Fixer, and if that is the case, the rate is $94/hour per Fixer.
The Right Tools and Materials for the Job
We work to ensure that each Fixer arrives equipped to complete most projects with the right tools and materials already in hand. We bring basic materials to the job as needed and only charge for what we use.
If your project requires specific materials - like tiling a backsplash, staining a deck, or installing a toilet - we are happy to work with you to create a specific project material list and do the shopping for you for a flat $50 fee + 20% markup to cover time and driving expenses. Our hourly clock is always turned off and the fee is flat, no matter how much shopping we need to do (online and in-store), and doesn't start again until we begin working. This is a great opportunity to get the right materials the first time-- plus save time and money--by letting our experts do it right for you.
We are typically able to provide ballpark hourly estimates for most common home repair jobs online. The more you can tell us (or show us with pictures) up front, the better we can estimate for you. Your Fixer will always confirm the estimate once he/she arrives at your home and make sure that you’d like to proceed before getting to work. The final cost is determined based on the time and materials you use.
No two projects are alike, but here's an overview for some common ones:
