Handyman Boulder

Tools of the trade

Hanz-On Pro labor costs are based on a sliding scale as follows:

  • 1–8 hours . . . . . . . . . . . . $85/hour
  • 9–24 hours . . . . . . . . . . . $80/hour
  • 25+ hours. . . . . . . . . . . . $75/hour

Cash or credit card payments are due upon receipt of the invoice. When using a credit card, we need to pass along the 3.5% fee to customers. Invoices are overdue in 10 days.

For small jobs (1-8 hours), we can provide a rough estimate of cost based on photos of the problem. We charge a one-hour minimum for any job and then charge by the quarter hour thereafter.

For large jobs, we are willing to come out to discuss the project and provide a ballpark total cost. That visit is free. If you’d like a detailed, written estimate of labor and materials, we charge 1-3 hours of labor (depending on the amount of research needed). The cost of your written, detailed estimate is not invoiced to you if you decide to go with our services. On some jobs we are willing to offer a firm bid.

The hardest part of handyman work is estimating large jobs. Although everyone would like to believe otherwise, it is impossible to estimate accurately due to the many variables: no two projects are exactly the same and issues are often revealed after work has begun. For example, removing flooring to discover the sub-flooring has rotted and needs replacement, or finding mold inside a wall that needs mitigation. We only do quality work and we won’t cover up that rot or mold without addressing the issue. We do our best to provide a realistic figure and adjust it as we do the work. The bottom line is this: we will estimate your job based on what we can see at the time of the estimate, and we will discuss any additional costs if and when unforeseen issues arise. We work efficiently and expect to be paid for the actual labor and materials that we put into the job, regardless of our estimate. We add 20% to all purchases we make on behalf of our customers.

On large jobs (25 hours or more) with high material cost estimates, we ask for 50% of the total estimate up front.

We make every effort to schedule jobs appropriately, but sometimes the schedule will slip because unexpected situations come up in handyman work. We try to limit the slippage to one week. We always call if we’re running late. We appreciate customers who can be flexible, and we try to be flexible as well. For example, if you’re an established customer and have a situation that needs immediate attention, we will try to reschedule other customers to meet your need.
