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 a handyman during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Setting up a safe consultation or appointment with a handyman during the COVID-19 pandemic starts with comparing local professionals online. Message or call the handyman to ask about performing a consultation over the phone or, better yet, a video call. This will allow the handyman to assess the problem without increasing the risk of transmission by visiting your home. If the service is essential and the handyman needs to enter your home, you’ll need to take stringent safety measures for the visit. Discuss temporary fixes if possible, and come up with a plan for safety and digital payment.

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.

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

If possible, it’s best to set up a virtual consultation or phone call with a plumber near during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can send a message to a professional plumber near you and ask if they are available to video chat or have a phone call. Use that time to discuss the work that needs to be done. Make sure to ask any questions you have about the project. And lastly, ask the plumber how they handle payments and whether they have any specific safety precautions in place to comply with social distancing. 

How do I hire an electrician?

Go online to find a list of the best electricians in your area. View each individual electrician’s profile and learn more about their services and expertise. Then, read reviews from satisfied customers as well as any issues they may have encountered. This will help you find one with the right experience to work safely in your home.

You should also spend some time researching what qualifications and credentials they have. You might find information about their license on their profile, or you might need to check your local and state government’s website to verify their license. 

Once you’ve done a bit of research, ask to receive free estimates from several electricians in your area. Ultimately, hire the most qualified electrician who can complete your project at a reasonable price.

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

Generally, plumbers are often considered essential service providers. Essential service providers vary from state to state and city to city, however. For the most accurate information, check your official state or city government website to see whether a plumber is considered an essential service in your area.

Read CISA’s publication on identifying critical workers to find out more information on a national level. Some, but not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Do electricians do free estimates?

Yes, they do. Whether you’re looking for new electrical work or wiring repair, the electrician should offer you a free estimate. 

Go online to find the best electricians near you. After researching and finding a few pros who seem qualified for your job, go ahead and request a quote to find out how much those electricians will charge you.

What happens when a water pipe bursts?

When a pipe bursts, the water can cause indoor flooding and damage your home. If the pipe is in an accessible location, you will likely notice puddles of water right away. However, if the pipe is underground or behind a wall, it may cause reduced water pressure, a sulfur smell or discolored water. All of this can cause significant (and expensive) damage, which is why you should always contact a plumber near you if you suspect your pipes are leaking.

What do you do if you have a burst pipe?

First, switch off the water supply to reduce the water damage. You should also turn off the electricity for the part of your home that has sustained the leak, as it can be extremely dangerous if the water comes into contact with an electrical socket. Next, drain the remaining water from your faucets so it doesn’t freeze inside the pipes. 

Once you’ve done all of this, search for qualified plumbers in your area and ask them to provide you with a quote. 

Can a leaking pipe burst?

Yes. A leak in your pipe can build up pressure and wear through the material. Left unchecked, this pressure can cause the pipe to burst. This is why it’s so important to fix your pipes and contact a plumber as soon as you notice a leak — no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. 

Smaller leaks are easier and inexpensive to fix, saving you time and money in the long run. In addition, many insurance policies will not cover water damage for pipes that burst due to gradual leaks.

How much does it cost to repair a broken pipe?

The national average cost to repair broken pipes ranges from $120 to $170. Prices can vary depending on the type of damage, whether the pipe is easily accessible, the materials needed and where the pipe is located. For example, an exposed pipe under the sink will likely cost much less than a pipeline in your yard that requires digging. 

Your overall cost will also depend on the hourly rate of the contractor. Most plumbers charge between $60 and $65 per hour for standard pipe repair, and up to $95 per hour for complex plumbing work. 

Contact the best pipe repairers in your area to find out how much it will cost to fix your pipe(s).

Brian did a great job replacing our ballast in the kitchen for us. He helped us out by telling me exactly what to buy from Home Depot ahead of time (saving us some $). Would use him again for home repairs & definitely recommend!

I recently purchased a home and have had a few handymen over in the past weeks for minor repairs to the home. Eric is definitely the best one I've had over so far. His prices were fair and he was able to perform repairs the other handymen had trouble with such as replacing an overheating recessed light and repairing a leaky tub spout. The only negative thing I would say is that he could work on scheduling better (when I went to reschedule another appointment he wasn't able to come for almost 2 weeks) but otherwise I'm extremely pleased with his services.

I hired the 'A Plus Home Pros' today to install a garage door opener. I showed them five more home repair projects on my to-do list. They created a very affordable quote for all the projects, should I do them today. I agreed, and both my family and I are very happy I did accept the work. Most notably, they were able to install a new light and switch for the closet in the bonus room, without required any painting required. I have asked many hired pros (plumbers, electricians, etc.) about performing this specific task, only to receive quotes way too high and wall holes repairing required. I was overjoyed to have this particular project completed today. I am also satisfied with the upgrade to my garage door opener; it is nice and quiet. I definitely recommend these pros for home repair. - Carl

Added CFI outlet to front of home, repaired electrical issue in master bedroom, and electrical issue with kitchen garbage disposal. Great service, and a fair price. Great communication, too. I would definitely hire again, and I will contact Metric for all of my electrical needs.

Rudolph repaired our broken front yard faucet very efficiently. Also, he was nice enough to check water pressure inside the home. He had some good suggestion about our kitchen faucet, which runs somewhat low. We will definitely hire him in future as needed.

Antonio and his team are fantastic! I had no experience with hiring a contractor, and I had significant work that needed to be completed after a long-term tenant moved out of my rental. I had a stringent deadline because I was putting the home up for sale. When Antonio came to my house for the estimate, I already knew that he was a cut above most contractors. I had already interviewed four other potentials, and I was thoroughly impressed with the care and detail that he showed when conducting the estimate. He reviewed every square inch of my home and offered OPTIONS. He did not just tell me what h was going to do, but he explained the situation and potential outcomes in detail. I hired him to repair the interior and exterior damage to my entire house, and his work was of exceptional quality. He basically remodeled my house - my former tenant had caused significant damage: holes in the living room subfloor, significant damage to the deck, kitchen floor tile damage (he ended up replacing the tile floors), minor plumbing repairs, front and rear entry door repairs, stretching the carpet and repainting the entire interior. He did a phenomenal job, but moreover, he treated my house as if it were his own - so much so that my neighbors reached out to me to comment on how impressed they were with him. He is extremely knowledgeable and so good at what he does. Additionally, he is reasonably priced - he does excellent work that will not break the bank. I highly recommend Antonio and the Yellow Star team for your home repair and renovation needs!

Christian Brother Remodeling did truly EXCELLENT work on my home. I needed a whole lot of work done on my house (siding, carpentry, paint, etc.) within a very tight time and budget constraint. They were professional, trustworthy (I had to work while my home was being repaired), went above and beyond my expectations. They provided daily status reports along with photos so that I could see the progress being made. I can't say enough good about this contractor. The cost was incredibly reasonable. The work quality was outstanding. I give them my highest recommendation.

I sincerely wish I could leave a lower rating. My home is in shambles due to shoddy work and I'm going to have to pay someone else to fix the mess Alliance Construction made. My complaints include: never being on time, not responding to at least 50 % of my messages, finishing portions of the project without asking my preferences for thing like trim or paint, leaving the job incomplete, and extremely shoddy work. I was willing to let them have second chance to repair their mistake, but Doug didn't show up as arranged! Please save yourself time, money, and stress by hiring another company.

Kevin Penney has done several jobs for me in the past few months. It started with drying out a basement after a plumbing leak, and I liked him so much that I hired him to repair my roof, re-do thresholds and seals on several doors, install a chandelier, install a screen door, and we have one more shelving/painting project in my office that I'd like to get done before the end of the year. I'm so glad to have this relationship with Kevin now. He's a great communicator, on time, always respectful of me, my home, my pets and my time, and he cares about the nitty-gritty details! I have referred friends to him and will continue to do so with great confidence!
