David and Mike were amazing. The quote came in well under what we received from several plumbing services. Before I even selected him, David was interacting and involved in the faucets that I purchased from Lowes - offering guidance all along the way. He was very up front about his schedule, which required navigating on our end, but it was well worth it. When David arrived, he checked under all sinks to ensure he had what was needed. He highly recommended new hoses and valves. He went to Home Depot himself to pick the parts and to save us time. He provided a receipt for the parts and did not require any extra funds for the additional installation. David and Mike even provided entertainment at no extra charge, and it was actually a fun and enjoyable experience - which was unexpected and not required for the project. :) I would hire David & Team again without hesitation and have already provided him a list of things I would like to accomplish for home improvements.

My wife met with Handyman in order to install two ceiling fans and pendant lighting. I was out of town and here is what she said about Handyman. Handyman was on time with a pleasant personality. He installed ceiling fans and pendant lights. There was an existing ceiling fan incorrectly installed by a previous installer, he took it down and reinstalled correctly. Furthermore, one of the ceiling fan Handyman was to install did not work. He told my wife to take if back and exchange and he would come back the next day to install at no additional cost. He did come the next day and installed the new fan however we paid him. My wife thought his willingness to return at no charge went about and beyond. She/we have put Handyman on speed dial as he was that good. If you need Handyman services I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Doug was prompt to reply to my Thumbtack inquiry and quite helpful with his recommendations on how to tackle my TO DO project. He stopped by to take a look at the existing pool slide to make sure that he'd have all the required tools necessary. The appointment was set, and Doug arrived right on time. Within 2 hours the slide was removed, discarded and the holes in the pool deck were filled. While he was waiting, Doug even tightened up the gate lock and secured all the nuts and bolts on the gate. His rate was quite reasonable and I will gladly utilize Summers Handyman Service for future To Do List tasks!

My wife and I needed our house painted and decided to try Thumbtack. David came out and consulted with us - from the first encounter he was professional and courteous. He was extremely punctual and did a fantastic job. There may be cheaper out there but if you want professional, quality work don't look elsewhere. I'll def be using his company again as they offer full handyman and other services as well.

Hercules Service team came by, gave a quote, and then showed up on time to do the work. Even though he thought the work would take longer, our handyman was very quick and efficient, so the final bill was even lower than the quote. Definitely will hire them again!

Good guy. Great communicator. Quoted me far less than he should've, but he's passionate about the word he does. I give him extra because he deserved it. He installed and cut two bathroom countertops, installed new faucets and new light fixtures. Additionally, he swept and cleaned up all mess. He made sure to do some drywall as well. Excellent. Although he's not insured and bonded, it didn't bother me one bit. If you're looking to save some money, he's your guy. I'd recommend him to anyone that needs handyman services. All of the above (work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value and punctuality). THANK YOU. I'll be hiring him again to install my farmhouse kitchen sink and butcher block countertops.

Jake showed up ahead of time and ready to tackle the problems that I had. He quickly diagnosed the minor electrical problem and had it fixed promptly. He also completed an inspection of some plumbing connections and verified that all were in good condition. I had been looking for a good local handyman in the East Valley of Phoenix & I will be using Jake again in the future.

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.

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.

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.
