Very good experience. Brian responded very quickly, did an onsite estimate the next day. Made important recommendations for the best approach, including recommending that one of the gates did not require repair. The work was completed as scheduled and at the estimated cost. From first contact to job complete in 48 hours. Outstanding.

Mike is very responsive. He responded to me within a few hours of entering my request and we set up a time to make the repair the next day. He was professional and provided a quality service for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend Mike and will send any future electrical jobs his way.

My wife and I purchased our home about 3 years ago. The flowerbeds had not been maintained for about 4 years prior to our purchasing the property. Needless to say they were overgrown and out of control. I spoke with Chris about cleaning up and re establishing our flower beds around our home. He made an appointment to come by and evaluate our property. When he finished he not only had a very professional estimate. He presented some designs of what they would actually look like once completed. After receiving the go ahead to proceed with the work. He and the TLC team showed up in force and proceeded to carry out the task of clearing out our overgrown flower beds. The work was quite extensive but they had them cleared up in one afternoon. After consulting with Chris we decided to outline them with rock and use mulch for our base material. This work was completed the next day. We also had them make a walkway with cast stone. I would highly recommend Chris and the TLC group to anyone looking for a high quality lawn care and property maintenance professional.

    I contacted Robert after my toilet leaked while I was on vacation. I returned and a significant portion of my bathroom floor had been ruined. Once we found the replacement tile he provided me an estimate for what the job would cost, I agreed and he got right to work. I thought the price was a little high until I saw just how much skilled labor was involved while he worked. The finished product looks great and I'm glad I chose him for the work. He has since helped with a half dozen or so projects around my house and I'm surprised each time at the wide swath of knowledge that he has about so many different trades. I would recommend him for all you home improvement needs.

    I called Chris with Superior Home Improvement to get an estimate on painting the exterior of my house. He was very prompt in getting out to write the estimate. He took time to review the the estimate and give me options and was to save on the repairs. The work was top quality and very professional. I have hired Superior yo paint the interior and a few other projects.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do you find a good handyman?

    Finding a good handyman can change your life. Within days, the endless list of insurmountable tasks that were either out of your skill range or impossible to fit into your busy schedule can be completed. If you know you want help but aren’t sure how to hire the right pro, ask these questions to find the right fit:

    • What is your work experience? If you are putting in a tile backsplash, you want someone experienced with the task, not someone who generally does painting and junk removal.
    • How much do you charge? Handymen often charge hourly rates that vary based on the complexity of the task they’re hired to do, as well as flat rates for standard jobs. Be clear about what they’ll charge before you hire them.
      • On that note, discuss payment details. It’s wise not to pay all the money up front, especially for larger projects. You may be able to pay a deposit for materials and pay the remainder upon project completion.
    • How long will the job take you to complete? If the handyman is as busy as you are and a fence repair is going to take months, you should probably find another qualified handyman for the job.

    Read client reviews and follow up with references to make sure you’re choosing the right handyman for your projects. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

    What does a handyman do?

    A handyman is a skilled laborer who provides basic home repairs. Anyone can call themselves a handyman, although most who do so are skilled with repairs and home projects. Reading reviews is a good way to determine their fitness for your job. The tasks a handyman can perform include assembling furniture, painting interiors and exteriors, repairing fences, repairing broken doors or replacing trim, hanging lights, hooking up appliances, and much more. Handymen may have flat fees for certain services, or charge an hourly rate. Handyman rates are often lower than those of a contractor, as they don’t have the same specialization. Some states have no limit on the work a handyman can perform, while others do. For example, California’s Building and Professions Code section 7048 (small operations) permits handymen to provide work similar to that of a contractor (floor installation, painting, etc.) provided the total cost of labor and materials does not exceed $500. A handyman is a great resource for minor home repairs at a lower cost than a licensed contractor, but for more complex projects, it pays to hire a specialized contractor. Fore more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

    How much does a handyman charge?

    The national average rate for handyman jobs is $90-$160. A handyman performs general maintenance and repairs for residential and commercial properties. A handyman may charge a flat fee for standard services that take a predictable amount of time, such as installing a new appliance, as well as an hourly rate for larger projects such as digging out and replacing a rotted fence post. A cost-saving strategy when hiring a handyman is to bundle all the tasks you want them to do into one visit to make the most of any minimum service fee. Hourly rates for a handyman can average $50-$100 per hour. Pricing will depend on skill and experience required for the job, as well as regional labor rates. Here are a few examples of average handyman flat rates.

    • Attic ladder replacement: $150.
    • Toilet replacement: $75.
    • Ceiling fan and light fixtures: $75.
    • Faucet replacement: $125.
    • Garbage disposal: $75.

    Can a handyman do plumbing?

    In some states, a handyman can provide plumbing services, but it may be in your best interest to call a plumber, particularly for issues more major than unclogging a drain or attaching a new sink. Hiring a plumber is important because mishandling your water and gas lines has the potential to do great damage to your home, your family’s health, or even the safety of your neighborhood. A handyman is not legally required to have any training or licensing in plumbing matters, while a licensed plumber has undergone years of education and on-the-job training. In some cases, homeowners insurance won’t cover damage caused by plumbing repair done by an unlicensed handyman.

    According to the U.S. Department of Labor, most plumbers learn their trade through a four- or five-year apprenticeship with 2,000 hours of paid on-the-job training. They also receive classroom education including “safety, local plumbing codes and regulations, and blueprint reading. They also study mathematics, applied physics, and chemistry. After completing an apprenticeship program, plumbers … are considered to be journey workers, qualifying them to perform duties on their own,” according to the DOL. Licensed plumbers should do continuing education to keep abreast of safety and technology changes. Poor plumbing can lead to sewage backups, a flooded home or even natural gas leaks, so it’s best to leave it in the hands of a specialized professional.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
