Austin, you should be proud. Your vibrant city has over 2.5 times the national average for fence repairs, home maintenance, and deck remodeling. These stats are based on the thousands of requests for pros we see each year on Thumbtack. No saggy porches in the ATX—y’all look good! Here are Austin’s 11 most popular home improvement projects:
Fence Installation or Repair
Define the garden, enclose the pool, block street noise, gain privacy, protect the kids, add decorative touches—you name, Austin’s fence pros can handle it. There is truly a fence for all seasons in this city, so find your perfect fit.
Austin loves living outdoors. The warm summer nights and wildflower-filled spring days mean the yard is just another room in the house. Make it gorgeous and inviting with the help of a landscape pro. They’ll revamp existing landscaping or create magic out of a dirt yard. Plus, hiring a landscaper can pay for itself.
Pest Control Services
Cockroaches got you down? The worst is when they’re in the bathroom sink. Ugh. It’s like they’re as big as battleships. Get free of the bugs, wasps, rodents and other creepy crawlies with professional pest control. You deserve to brush your teeth in peace.
Electrical and Wiring Issues
Switches, circuit breakers, and wiring—oh my. If your power crashes each time you have band practice in the garage or a strange burning smell emanates from the fuse box, it’s best to turn things over to an electrician.
Plumbing pros are so much more than clogged toilet masters. They install sump pumps, sort out septic systems, install underground pipes, work with wells, tackle water treatment systems. And, of course, they unclog stuff. You’ll know when you need their help.
Hook ‘em Horns! If for some crazy reason you can’t tailgate with the best of ‘em downtown, you at least need your TV to be in prime viewing position. Fire up the BBQ, invite over the neighbors, and watch the big game from the comfort of your couch.
Fence Repair and Maintenance
Back the truck into the fence? Don’t worry, it happens. If you’re missing slats, the rain rotted out the posts, or the chain is missing some links, local fence pros will fix you right up. They’re also awesome at repairing wood or iron gates that have lost their opening, closing, or swinging power.
Skylights, stained glass, French doors, home windows, office windows, window treatments, window screens, window tracks…Thumbtack is like the Bubba Gump of window cleaning.
Whether you want it built, installed, repaired, or removed, Austin’s skilled carpenters have got you covered. Install a custom shelf for your prized record collection. Build a sweet deck for lazy summer nights sipping Real Ale. Gift your sweet honey with handcrafted furniture. Do it all by bidding quotes from the comfort of your keyboard.
Find a midcentury modern gem while yard saling? Maybe it’s more of a diamond in the rough in need of serious polish. Have the wood refinished, resplendent new upholstery installed, and the whole thing looking like a million bucks again. And the cycle of life goes on.
A gorgeous tree shading the yard is the best. Waiting 15 years while it grows is not the best. Skip the line like Mother Nature’s little VIP with the help of a tree planting service. Local pros will advise on the best tree for your overcooked Austin yard, can purchase and deliver the mature tree, and install it like it was born there. All you have to do is relax and sip some sweet tea.
