  • 4 hires on Thumbtack
  • Serves Santa Barbara, CA
Hector and his crew helped me re-landscape a rental property, installed irrigation, there, and at my home, and does regular maintenance at several properties. I have a wide variety of plants, some old and rare, so I need an experienced, reliable gardener. Unlike so many, Hector is friendly and articulate: discusses (and remembers!) what needs to be done; shows up on schedule, or calls, in advance, regarding changes; and works the jobs himself, while also supervising his crew effectively. He uses high quality materials, but will salvage existing resources, where possible, to save money. Knows proper pruning techniques!!! Amenable to using integrated pest management, and organic fertilizers. Genuine green thumb - plants never looked happier! In addition, Hector has done adjunct handyman work: small plumbing, carpentry and electrical jobs, as well as organizing storage areas and hauling. Call soon, while he still has open time!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic, ensure that you are performing as much of the process digitally as possible. The best way to begin is by conducting an online search for local electricians. Ask if they can perform consultations over a phone or video call to comply with social distancing mandates. You should also discuss a strategy for how to complete the project during social distancing or whether the project should be completed once the pandemic has ended.

How can I find out if an electrician is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Guidelines are available from both local and federal government agencies to clarify which services qualify as essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. To determine whether an electrician is considered an essential service provider in your area, check your city or state’s government websites.

For federal guidelines, consult CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 page, which outlines 16 critical infrastructure sectors. But not that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Can I use digital payments to pay for electrical and wiring repair?

These days, many electricians will accept digital payments for electrical work and wiring repair instead of traditional cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped speed up the adoption of platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and others as a means of complying with social distancing guidelines.

As you search for electricians online, ask whether they’ll accept digital payment and set up a strategy for staying safe. 

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not.
