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.

Matt contacted me by text after I "hired" him and let me know what time he expected to arrive at my house to repair my front door. He texted me that his current job was taking more time than expected and asked if an hour later than originally noted would work for me. The Thumbtack software worked well to keep us connected. Matt was very pleasant and explained things well. I decided to have him replace my door handle and deadbolt as well as door bottom sweep and insulation around the door. Matt did a great job!!

I would thoroughly recommend Dan to anyone who needs AC service. He responded to my email promptly and was able to schedule me the same day I had the failure with my AC unit on a holiday too! He fixed the problem quickly and cleaned up after the repair iand was very courteous and respectful. I only wish that all my service people were like Dan.

We were extremely happy with Adrian's work. We initially requested a quote for a repair of a number of interior hollow wood doors, all damaged with a number of punctured holes. Adrian was quick to show up on the site and provide an estimate that we thought was fair. The work he did was professional and high in quality. The doors were patched with a high-class wood filler, re-sanded and painted, leaving them looking like new. Thank you Adrian for the extraordinary service!

James Wesolaski of “Get Lit” has it all going for him. Proficient, DEPENDABLE, personable, knowledgeable, and clever. If anything could go wrong with my project [a 40-year old cooling system], it did!! James handled it all with a great sense of humor, the keen skill to determine “why” and the know-how to repair each glitch. From now on, he is “my go-to guy”!!! I highly recommend him [but, if something of mine breaks down, I get first dibs on him].

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.

We had Mobile Welding Gate Repair out to work on a couple of gates and the work was done perfectly. The service was prompt and we'd recommend them to anyone that has a gate or fence job the needs work on.

Art and his son Richard were excellent! Professional, friendly and stuck to his original quote even when the job required a little more work. Extremely pleased with the experience in dealing with a&a, will definitely be calling Art back for any sprinkler work needed in the future. If you need someone to repair your existing sprinkler system, give Art a call.

We hired Mr. Tibbs to do work on our rental home. Josh repaired the living room ceiling, fixed wall cracks throughout the home, plumbing issues in bath, repaired (drywall, paint) a large hole in lvrm. He did an amazing job installing hardwood floors throughout another home as well. We found him to be very reasonable, professional, and completed work within the time frame given. I have recommended Mr. Tibbs to friends and they were very happy with his work as well.

My computer, printer and network ( router, modem ) situation at home was just a mess. Nothing seemed to ever work right, and I was just straight frustrated. I decided to give Chris a call at Elite Tech Services. He came over same day actually which was nice being in an instant gratification type person anyway, fixed everything and also gave me instruction on how to troubleshoot some problem on my own. Not only was he friendly and knowledgable but affordable and prompt. Now I can get back to working and not having to deal with all this extra stress. Thanx Chris at Elite Tech, I appreciate you very much! I recommend this service for sure!

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!

Dario and his team were great and we love the way our house turned out. So glad we went with him. His attention to detail and customer service was greatly appreciated. They had to work around me and my husband and our twin toddlers a few times and they did it with a smile. I have already recommended him to friends and family! Thank you, Dario!!

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.

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.
