Paint and Patches
Your Cooperative Source for Handyman Services in Delaware and Maryland!

Think of what we could do together!

Paint and Patches is a cooperative operating company. We specialize in small projects, and we're looking for people who want to help us grow while doing work they love.

Great Pay

If you have handyman skills and some free time, joining our team can be a great way to make extra money! We set our pay rates based on the median wages tracked by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. You'll start at $20 an hour for most handyman services and $17 an hour for painting. (Everyone does both kinds of work as needed.)

After you've worked 50 hours, both of those rates go up by $2.50 an hour.


As an employee, you'll be covered by our licenses and insurance for work you do through the cooperative, including liability and Workers Compensation coverage. If you break something or get hurt, you're covered. We withhold income and payroll taxes, and we put an extra 3% of your pay each period into a Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) at our expense.


Our goal is to create part-time work.  We understand that you have other things going on.  You'll schedule estimates and projects based on your availability, whether that means working around another job or making sure you have enough time for family, friends, and fishing.

Why wait? Cooperate! Let's work together.
