I would definitely recommend David! When others wanted to charge me and arm and a leg just to change a kitchen faucet, David gave me a very reasonable quote. He was on time, courteous, honest and is extremely professional. Even though he had to go to Lowes to get an extra part for my custom faucet, which required a bit more labor and more of his time, he still charged me the same amount he quoted me on the website and over the phone. I wish there were more professionals, honest business people like David out there. Thanks David Martinez!

Lou responded to my request for an estimate promptly and was out the same day and schedule the work for 2 days later. I have asked at least 3 electricians for a solution to my problem of getting power to a Ring doorbell on an outside wall. None were able suggest a workable solution. Lou solved the problem and my doorbell now works as I intended. Lou is professional, polite, responsive and reasonable. I will hire him the next time a project fits his profile.

Charles was upfront with his labor charge after I told him what my plumbing problem was. He was on time and professional. He came and checked on what part I needed, ran to pick it up, bringing the receipt with him. I paid the labor charge (which was quoted) plus the cost of the part. His business does other things than plumbing. I asked for his card and will call him again for other work I need. Don't let his side ways pictures on this site fool you into thinking he doesn't do good work. He gets an upright job done well!

Jeff (and crew) were professional and curtious. They were able to make some changes I requested on the fly. Quality and craftsmanship were good. Cost/labor was extremely reasonable. I would use Jeff again.

If you are tired of the companies that try to charge you huge fees, make you wait all day for them to arrive, and do a so-so job, then Rick is your answer. I have never met him until I just hired him for a tile and plumbing job. He told me what his labor cost was ($60/hr.), how long the job would take and when he would arrive. He was on-time, did a fantastic job, and within my budget. I will definitely use him again. Thanks Rick and Maggie!

I recently hired Hughes Construction to handle a multi faceted repair project for a home that is up for rental. Jeffrey Hughes went over every room with me, discussing what repairs were needed and then gave me his budget for the labor. He went with me to choose the necessary materials. The project was completed on time and to my satisfaction ! I would recommend Hughes Construction to anyone requiring good work at a fair price!

I hired a Thumbtack furniture assembler to assemble our furniture but he called and said he could not make it at the time that was scheduled. So we cancelled. We were frustrated and wanted our IKEA furniture put together so we called Thumbtack and asked if they could help us out. They gave us Patrick’s phone number and I called Patrick and asked if there was any chance he could come out and put our furniture together, now keep in mind it was close to 4pm, on a Saturday evening on Labor day weekend. Patrick said he was not doing any jobs at the moment and he would be happy to come down and assemble our furniture. Patrick came right over and got to our house about 5pm and left at 9pm. I have to say he was “Great”. Patrick is very good at assembling furniture and he is a very nice person and he put our furniture together and we are very happy with his work. I would not hesitate to hire Patrick again. Anyone who would come over at the last minute and stay until the job is done has to be one of the best, and that is what Patrick is, one of the best. John

Because we do almost anything, for next to nothing prices! It's more for helping people out and paying our bills, not for making a huge profit at the clients' expense. We work until the client is completely satisfied, that is when the job is "done"; not just after the project is completed.


Basically, I do all the things you don't want to do or things you don't have time to do. I specialize in all general Labor work. Call me up and I'll "Get it Done".


Day Labor is full and part time. I am retired and looking for work to keep me busy. I will come to you a do yard work and other chores.


Hard worker need to help on jobs my fiance is terminal ill and I need to work I am looking for a job to work with any professional any job all I have I iz a good back and hard work effort please call if you are an employer who needs a hired hand work inexpensive and all day if need be


I am not scared of any type of work. Whatever it is you need, I'm pretty sure I could do it. If you need your lawn serviced, I'm your guy. If you want your car washed, I'm your guy. If you're moving and you need help moving your furniture, I'm your guy If you need your house cleaned, I'm your guy.


Landscape is our main work, but we also provide other options such as movers and clean up crews. We have licensed people for this business, and highly recommended by former and existing clients. We could show up for estimates on a scheduled visit, and offer advice if you like on what needs to get done.


I work with any help needed in events and shows, from cleaning and maintenance to catering and security. I'll work as low as a minimum wage. My service is not expensive at all, and my work ethic is top-of-the-line. My schedule is open for anytime, and I work for your convenience and benefits.


We take pride in our work and we stand by it.


I'm an all-around handyman. There is no job that is too big or too little. I get it done in reasonable time, so I can hopefully gain a new customer. I take pride in my work, and it shows in my work.


I am a very hardworking person who has great integrity and a good personality. I myself have worked all my life. I have apprenticed a general contractor for several jobs. We covered everything from pouring cement for foundation to the touch-up paint on trim. I also have approximately two years of experience with metal working. I had to use an oxyacetylene cutting torch to cut up cars, trucks, RVs, and other over-sized scrap metal objects.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.

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.
