Who is responsible for tools, supplies, & materials?

Your professional will come equipped with the basic tools they will need to get the job done, along with basic supplies like nails, screws, and glues. For larger materials (like drywall or the fixtures being installed) or replacement parts, you should arrange with your Pro whether you will provide them or if you would like your Pro to purchase them on your behalf. If your Pro purchases the materials, the cost will be added to your final Angi invoice. Please feel free to take photos of the job prior to its start, and communicate with your Pro ahead of time to determine any non-basic material needs.

See How can I contact my pro? for more details on how to get in touch with your pro prior to your booking. Before the booking, please confirm with your Pro that you would like them to help purchase materials for you, including which materials you need.

If your pro purchases materials for your booking you can reimburse them directly or follow the below instructions:

  1. When purchasing materials, your Pro will text you the total cost. If you agree to the cost, you MUST confirm this over text / in the app chat before your Pro can purchase the materials.
  2. Once the Pro submits their receipt of purchase, our Customer Experience Team will update your payment for the job to include the cost of the materials and Angi will send that payment on to the Pro.
