Top Tradesman related questions

The average cost of a tradesperson is $30 per hour in the United States. The cost of getting a tradesperson to help with your task will vary, depending on the size of the task, whether you are supplying materials, your location, and the complexity of the job. But in general, most tradies cost between $100 to $350 when hired for a task through Airtasker.

When you post a task on Airtasker, you’ll usually get a fixed-price quote based on the type of service you're requesting. Sometimes, after inspecting the problem, your Tasker may recommend additional work and suggest an hourly rate on top of the original quote.

The most common trades in the US are plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and carpentry. These skilled trades are in high demand for their specialist skills and ability to help out with everyday, but high-risk tasks around the home.

Most trades require licenses, registrations, and insurance to operate. This ensures they have the right skills and knowledge to work safely and to ensure the quality of their work. License requirements also vary on your location. Some states require tradespeople to have a license to perform a specific type of work. For example, those working as electricians, plumbers, or HVAC technicians would require a license to operate in Texas and California. Be sure to check if the Tasker has the appropriate licenses, certifications, or experience before hiring them for their service.

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

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

What do tradies 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 contractors to help with home repairs, maintenance, and construction, you can find a tradesman in your area to help with tasks like:

Electrical & plumbing

When you hire a contractor 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 plumber 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 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 colored 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.
