David is GREAT, He was at my home in N. Scottsdale replacing my garbage disposal within 75 minutes of the Thumbtack contact. Very honest also, My drain had been clogged all weekend do to the spoon I dropped into the 18 year old disposal. I thought I needed additional drain unclogging, But David informed me my issues were over. He also gave me helpful maintenance advice going forward. He is a very nice guy, And knowledgeable about a lot of home repairs. I'm glad to have him in my contacts. Thanks again David for everything, Your awesome!!!

He was very professional unlike Steven Golod of SG Installations who attempted to intimidate me into hiring him. This guy and the co-owner responded immediately, quoted a excellent price, 40% lower than the rest, and when he came out to do the work, I had some twists and turns, but he overcame all obstacles and still wanted to charge me dirt cheap for excellent quality work. I of course tendered extra. I appreciate a professional service that keeps their word. Kudos Manuel! Our next job is in Goodyear at our home.

Allen was FANTASTIC!!! His communication was grade A! He always kept me in the loop with what was going on even when he had to meet with a third party (Electric company and the City). Allen is punctual with time. He showed up right on the dot not a minute late or a minute too soon (which was good for the early project, and allowed me to sleep a little more). Most importantly though I felt his price was incredibly reasonable and that he really cared about me the customer. Feeling a bit worried and intimidated never dealing with the electric part of repairs on a home I felt Allen was incredibly fair and honest. His work quality speaks volumes on this site! With all that being said, Allen will be a part of my team, and will use him exclusively for all my electric needs in the future.

I picked 2:00 for phone contact, Jenny replied 2 - 2:30. Never got a call, so I called her at 3. We agreed on someone coming to my home Sat. am to talk about the job, measure, etc. so they can estimate. Judd seems to know what he's talking about, has good ideas, I'm waiting for an estimate, no rush.

Jason responded to our request to install pendant lights over our kitchen island, and completed the install within 24 hours of our first inquiry! Granted, we may have been fortunate to hire him on such short notice, but I can promise you he’s worth the wait if he can’t get your job scheduled right away. He is very professional and well informed and a perfectionist when it comes to accuracy. We plan on using his services again to install some under counter lights. Do not hesitate to hire Jason for WHATEVER your home repair/maintenance needs may be!!

Kevin did a great job with our kitchen backsplash installation. The job was finished in two days and looks awesome. He was very polite, knowledgeable and professional every step of the way. He even took extra time to help repair some floor tile for us. I highly recommend Kevin for anyone needing this kind of work done.

Enjoyed having Larry come out and do the plumbing on our kitchen remodel. Showed up 10 minutes early and was very professional. A leak developed that was not his fault, and even came back same day to repair it. Very impressed!

Carlos did a fine job. Everything was as well done as could have been expected. He did a tub/shower replacement, shower valve replacement, raised our shower head and ceiling, and fixed our water heater and brought it back up to code (I did the water heater install myself, and let's just say I could use some practice). We will call Carlos again in the future when we have plumbing needs. Also l, the drywall repair around the install is done very well.

the craftsman was as professional as I have ever seen. He assessed the area in need of repair efficiently organized the steps required, put them in motion and completed it within the time frame he estimated. I plan on having Hercules back for other projects and will ask for Phillip by name. Phillip is an excellent craftsman.

I didn’t think there was much hope for my leaky, moldy outdated ceramic tile shower with some god-awful floor base that stained so bad. I have a decent house but this shower area was a nightmare. Well I really lucked out getting Ivan via Thumbtack. I heartily recommend him for any drywall, tile and grout creation you might want. He’s an absolute craftsman. He doesn’t just repair, he creates a new design look. Every time I look at my new shower area I am amazed and pleased to find everything is square and plumb, the tiles are cut and installed perfectly and the tile and grout color enhances the new chrome and glass door he picked out. As a matter of fact he picked out everything on account of I have no design sense and, I’m told, I may as well be color blind as to try to pick out something tasteful. No matter to Ivan. Since he knows what he is doing he picked out everything perfectly. He also took time to prepare all the surfaces and treat the area against mold before installing new waterproof drywall and a modern floor and drain area. The he artistically created a tile enclosure like no other I’ve see. It’s not that he increased the value of my home much more than I paid him; it’s not that he worked fast but careful and it's not the very fair price he gave me. It’s because I feel happily amazed when I enter the room and see his craftsmanship. That peace of mind hardly compares with the little he charged me compared to the result I got back. Bonus: He has a pleasing professional personality that is extremely rare in contractors these days. You can trust him to listen to you and still create a masterpiece.

These gentlemen came and quickly repaired 4 issues. Raul suggested a remedy for the fountain that is working beautifully. Repaired a light rather than push me to replace. All in all, they were professional, friendly and knew exactly what they were doing. Offered some good suggestions for future projects but listened to my concerns.

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.
