WELCOME TO TOOLS OF

HER TRADE

In the midst of our state's and nation’s response to the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) I want you to know that Tools of Her Trade is committed to the safety of my customers and associates. I am monitoring the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), government agencies, to stay on top of this evolving situation.

I have been vaccinated, but am happy to wear a mask in your home if you prefer.

There is currently a national shortage of building and home repair supplies, including wood, drywall, repair compounds, screws and nails, hangers, etc. The prices of these supplies are fluctuating sometimes daily, and obviously, I have no control over that. Therefore, the supply charge may increase slightly based on what is happening to prices during the time of your job.

THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING!

I'm looking forward to working with you.

Who says a woman can't fix stuff?

Wouldn't you rather have a woman working in your home? 

I'll get it done, even with the kids running around.

 

My Personal Remodel

After over 25 years in the "business world" I decided it was time to remodel myself. Honestly, I loved the daily brain crunch, strategic planning, business development, innovation, etc. etc. until...I didn't.

 

One morning, I was in the shower looking at a window that was rotting and mildewed. I thought OY, I have to get a handyman out to do this. And I don't know when I'm going to be home, and how do I find someone (my mind started spiraling out of control...) until I realized that I can fix that!  

And that I did. It looks great, by the way. 

 

I decided that I want (and get) to do something that I get a lot of joy from. Believe it or not, that happens when I pick up a hammer, saw, screwdriver, and my trusty level and start building and fixing things. And, not to brag, but I'm good at it.

 

So here I am. Ready to get going and get it done using the tools of MY trade.

 

 

 

My Trades

My Schedule

My Prices

My normal hours are

M-F from 7:30 am - 3:00 pm

This is mainly because I want to be around when my kids get home from school. Summer is different...

For quick jobs after 3:00 pm or weekends, give me a text or call and I'll see what I can do. (no promises!)

Text 317-658-2973 or email dana@toolsofhertrade.com is the best way to reach me. Just be sure to tell me your name and where you live!

l'll get back to you as soon as I can, which may be a day or two.

(I don't always respond immediately if I'm on a job)

Things I don't do:

  • Plumbing

  • Major electrical

  • Ceiling Fans

  • Bathroom light vents

I will always tell you if I am unable to do something!  No point in potentially messing anything up!  

It feels good to know up front what you're going to pay for service, doesn't it?

I charge a flat $65 /hour with a one-hour minimum.

My weekend or holiday rate is $80/hour with a one-hour minimum.

Estimates are hourly - not fixed price jobs.

 

Please don't try to negotiate with me...it leads to bad feelings for everyone.

Just like most in-home service providers, payment is due at the time of service.

Along with the hourly rate, I charge for work supplies specific to the project. These are supplies I need to do the work.

 

Work Supplies are different from work materials - items I purchase specifically for a job (grout, wood, paint, etc.). Please click here for more details.

As much as I'd love to be able to provide my services all around the city... my main service area is around

I'm happy to go outside of this area, but there may be a $65 trip charge.

But, if you hire me, I will apply the to the cost of the job!
