My pipe burst off. David was very professional and took care of it right away. I waited 2 hrs for a so called plumber to call me back. Then I got a response from him for a very reasonable price. He was at my house within 10 minutes and I was back to my day. Thank you so much for being honest, quick, and understanding.

Still an in-progress job, but so far I am super impressed. I have never found a handyman that communicates so well, conducts himself in a professional manner, arrives on time and has already gone above and beyond what I expected him to do.

Matt was incredibly thorough and professional. He came on short notice and stayed late until the work was complete and up to his high standards. Not your typical handyman!

Jason was amazing to work with. He was communicative throughout the entire process, responsive and timely and affordable. The job I asked him to do was on the handyman side of things to hand grind nearly 1,000 sq feet of cement so we could stain the concrete - he showed up with his crew, worked all day long, and cleaned up and left the spot better and cleaner than when he arrived. We had several issues with tool rentals I rented that he took the initiative to handle, overcome and resolve without me having to get involved right away. Hands down one of the best handyman services I've ever encountered. Can't wait for another project to come up to use him again! Best money spent.

Kevin was a lifesaver - taking a small space under a bathroom vanity and patching the pergo floor underneath it. I originally had another "handyman" attempt this and it was a disaster. Kevin fixed his mess up and made it 100% awesome. You would never know a patch job was done - he even removed my toilet to make it perfect. LOVE THIS GUY!

I'm about the most picky/snobby people out there when it comes to hiring handymen; I own that. I know what I expect and I won't take anything less. Daryll (one R and two L's, btw as I see it's misspelled on reviews), is nothing short of amazing. He's quick in response, dependable to show to his appointment time but more than anything else, he's a master at drywall repair. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Personally, I think he's underpricing himself because it's hard to find high quality repair professionals....and Daryll is truly the best out there.

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.

Joseph was very friendly and easy-going. I thought his bid was low, so I thought I might be gambling with his abilities. He certainly was experienced and knowledgeable. He replaced two ceiling fans and I asked if he could open up the pea-trap in the bathroom sink after an object had fallen into it. It only took him a minute to retrieve the object. I would definitely hire Mr. Right Handyman again.

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.

Dario and his helper did amazing work! I had all of my interior and exterior doors and my banister painted in my 2 story home. They were on time, went right to work, took time to be sure that all hardware was covered, the doors were removed and put back without issue, and they were professional. They did a fantastic job and I will use them again when needed.

Steven and Alex moved a cable line and added an electrical outlet so that can mount a new tv on my wall. In addition they repaired a section of damaged drywall. I was impressed with their professionalism (on-time, quality of work, communication). Steven made sure that the scope of work met my expectations before they got started. They worked efficiently, they kept the area clean as they worked and their craftsmanship was excellent. I plan to use Veterans Handyman Services for future projects.

Norm with McGinns Maintenance and Remodeling did a fantastic job with several items I needed fixed or painted around my home. He was timely, polite, did a great professional job, reasonably priced and went beyond what was requested. I would highly recommend him for all your handyman projects that need to be done at your home. We will call Norm again!!!

I hired Nathan to handle a few things around my house that needed a little help (ex. Leaking kitchen faucet, patched a hole in the wall, fixed the front door latch, amoung other things). I found him to be very knowledgeable and helpful. The best part is he didn't take advantage of me being a female when quoting a price for the job. I will hire him again for my furture handyman needs

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.
