Top Tradesman related questions

The average cost of hiring a tradesman ranges from $40 to $70 per hour, depending on your location and the type of tradesman you'll be hiring. Other factors that affect the cost of getting a tradesman include the size of the task, whether you are supplying materials, and the complexity of the job. But in general, most of the work from tradespeople costs between $115 to $400 when hired for a task through Airtasker.

When you post a task on Airtasker, you’ll usually get a fixed price quote. Sometimes, after inspecting the problem, your tradesman may recommend additional work and suggest an hourly rate on top of the original quote.

The most common trades in Australia are plumbing, electrical, and carpentry. These trades are in high demand for their specialist skills and ability to help out with everyday, but high-risk tasks around the home. Specialised tradesmen can also work as a craftsman or an artisan to help with different DIY projects. 

Most trades require licences, registrations, and insurance to operate. Each state has its specific licensing requirements for specific skilled workers. This ensures the tradesman has the right skills and knowledge to work safely and to ensure the quality of their work.

The best way to find and confidently hire the right tradesmen in your area is on Airtasker. Provide an accurate description of the task, review your offers, and check the ratings and reviews so you know your tradesman is experienced and will do a great job for your projects.

Hiring a tradesman directly gives you more control over the task, who does it, and how it’s completed. Plus, hiring an independent tradie can often be more affordable because they have fewer overheads - they can give you a more competitive quote.

What does a tradesman do?

Tradesmen (and tradeswomen!) can help you tackle the tasks that need the expertise, tools, and knowledge that only a qualified local tradie can give. Whether you need help with home repairs or construction, you can find tradespeople to help with tasks like:

Electrical & plumbing

When you hire a tradie to work with electricity, gas, or water, they’ll need special qualifications, training, and equipment to keep you and your house safe from fires, flooding, and property damage. You’d need to hire an electrician to install your new light fittings or electrical equipment, like ovens. And you’d need a plumbing tradie to help with plumbing tasks, like fitting new taps and pipes, or gas plumbing tasks like installing or repairing heaters and stoves. Your tradie will start by asking questions about the issues you’re having, then they’ll do a physical inspection of the area to assess the work needed. They’ll use their specialist tools and equipment to repair, install, or replace parts to get everything working properly.

Carpentry & cabinet making

Tradesmen are usually qualified professionals, so they’re ideally suited to tasks that need a higher skill level than a handyman. Carpenters and cabinet makers are in high demand for installing new cabinets, custom-making furniture and installing built-in robes and cupboards. They’ll measure your space to ensure the furniture and built-ins fit perfectly and match your existing decor. Then they’ll work with a range of equipment and tools (onsite or offsite) to cut and shape the wood, then assemble any parts to create your finished product.

Exteriors

Tradesmen can help provide a professional finish to your exterior building tasks. For example, installing or repairing balustrades. Your professional tradesmen will measure, fit and install glass, metal, or wood balustrades to make your balcony area or stairs safe while matching the design of your home. Once they’ve established a safe work zone, they’ll remove the old balustrades before installing the new parts. Another popular exterior task is installing or upgrading awnings. Your tradie can pull down old, broken, or faded awnings and help you choose a new awning to match your house and surroundings. Then they’ll carefully install the new awning so that it is safe and secure.

Concrete repairs & resurfacing

When concrete is damaged, it can create trip hazards, and let in water, dirt and other pests, which can cause further damage. Concrete resurfacing can help repair damage and give your property an instant update with coloured concrete overlays and/or designs. Your tradie will first assess the damage, then repair or replace any broken areas. Then they may clean the existing area with high-pressure hoses or chemicals. Once the area is clean and prepared, they’ll mix up a thin, concrete-based surface compound that will cover the area.

We had our balcony re waterproofed and tiled. During the removal of the old tiles some of the exterior cladding was impacted and broken off. We’re not looking for a perfect match in colour just a tidy up and patch job of the areas that are exposed. I will most likely paint over it anyway so will just require the repair work done. The tiles can be popped up as they sit on pods.

Install shelf, fix cabinet to wall (drywall/steel frame apartment)

$100

North Adelaide SA, Australia

9th Apr 2024

• install 2 x shelves (1 has wall brackets, 1 is a picture ledge with no brackets) • fix small cabinet to wall for stability 2 ikea shelves to be installed, plus a small shoe cabinet thing that is very shallow so definitely needs to be screwed into the wall for stability. We live in a newish apartment building on Melbourne Street, North Adelaide - I believe the walls are steel frame and drywall. At least one of the shelves will ideally need to be screwed into the steel frame. Please bring a stud finder or know how to find them. Please bring screws and screwdriver for drywall & metal frame as they do not come with ikea items. Please note there will be some measuring, I want things to be in the right place, centred, level etc. I’m not sure what this costs so please ignore the price listed.

Owen was very helpful installing our shelves with high quality and care

Remove old awning and replace with new one

$200

Stanmore NSW, Australia

3rd Apr 2024

I would like someone to remove an old awning and replace it with a new one I just purchased. The new awning is an Instahut 3mx1.5m one with plastic frame and polycarbonate roofsheets, basically the same as the old one. I am flexible as to when the job needs to be done but preference for Friday, Sunday and Wednesday. I will be able to assist if a second pair of hands is needed to hold up sheets etc. Own tools needed but I have a spare ladder as well.

Andrew was great to deal with, communicated well and honestly. Arrived on time, installed the awning very efficiently and cleaned up after. Highly recommended.
