Hurricane Irene: Thumbtack Seeks to Help

Like everyone else, we’ve been closely following all of the coverage of Hurricane Irene.

Our thoughts go out to all the people on the East Coast affected by the storm, and we hope the storm brings as little damage and harm as possible.

Thumbtack and our 5,000+ storm clean-up and repair professionals on the East Coast would like to do our part to help people repair their homes and businesses after the storm passes.

We’ve been working hard this weekend and are launching three new programs to help our fellow citizens after the storm:

  1. Storm Recovery Help: We’ve pulled together service professionals who can help clean up, repair roofs, fix broken windows, remove debris, and repair water damage. Go to our Hurricane Irene Recovery Center to find service professionals ready to help.
  2. Concierge Service: If a resident of the East Coast needs special help, please email us at and we’ll prioritize your email and reach out to you immediately to get you the help you need.
  3. Completely Free: Thumbtack is always free for consumers. We make money by asking our service professionals to pay lead fees or commissions on their jobs. We’ve completely waived all fees for service professionals in states affected by Hurricane Irene for the next week so that nothing stands in the way of our service professionals helping people affected by the storm.

We know this is a bad storm for many people. We have many friends and family who are holed up for the weekend throughout the East Coast. We want to do what we can to help out with the clean up effort.

Stay safe.
