I had plumbing work done by J.R. Electrical and handyman services. They were courteous and professional. They did the work in a timely manner and at a fraction of the cost of a big plumbing company. I will definitely be using them again

Doug was fast, communicative, and did the job to perfection. He performed an electrical and wiring job, but it is clear he is an experienced handyman in all major areas and he has a great personality to boot. I will definitely be utilizing his services again.

Tim is a very pleasant gentleman to work with. I'm sure my job was a lot more than he expected, because the price quoted was much less than I thought it would be. He never said anything about an increase, as I expected, hiring someone online. The job was definitely done to my expectation and I've already scheduled more work for Tim. I found my new handyman! Thank you again, I'm the happy camper :)

We needed a rental unit overhauled with a number of smaller maintenance tasks and painting. Mark was able to do all of it and coordinating with one person was great. Unlike our previous handyman, he communicated his progress regularly and worked to a very tight deadline. He also estimated well which kept the work within our budget.

Shawn did a great job under pressure when me and my fiancé moved into a house that was not taken care of by its owner. We almost broke the lease until Shawn found an inexpensive way to make the house look good again. He said he could finish it in two days and he did. I will be using Shawn as my go to handyman for anything that might come up in the future.

Carlos is hands down the best brick repairman in the business. High quality work at affordable prices. He is quick to respond and always on time with his appointment. I will never use another brick mason again and if you are smart neither will you. Give him a call tell him Big Vee referred you. You have my word you won't be disappointed.

I needed my door jamb fixed and Eddie did a great job on fixing it. He arrived on time came in and did his job and when he was done he cleaned up after him self. I would be calling him back if I need anything else fixed, I would also recommend him to anyone that needs a handyman.

Maria does FANTASTIC work. Don't be fooled into thinking that only men can do construction, because Maria is amazing. She is also a very pleasant person to have working in your house, which to me is important. She did an extensive remodel to our home that included our kitchen, master bathroom, and living & dining rooms. She took down walls and made them look like they were never there. She meticulously laid tile and wood flooring all throughout our home, and then put up beautiful crown moulding. A woman can do all this? Absolutely! She'll bring in the muscle when she needs to, she knows what she's doing. She is a skilled electrician, and basically rewired our whole house, and now everything works to perfection. She put in many long days at our house in Long Beach, and her work ethic was unbelievable. Contractor's sometimes get a bad wrap for being unreliable, but not Maria, she does what she says - ON TIME and WITHIN BUDGET (and with a smile, I may add). She has also done work for my parents and in-laws (which is how I found her), and all of us love Maria! Would I hire her again? 100% yes! In fact, we are saving up right now so she can come do the 2nd half of our house! Go with Maria, and you will be SO HAPPY you did!

Of all the handyman I’ve hired in the past, Steve was hands down the best! I had 2 main projects I needed help getting done, but Steve was so helpful and quick, he helped me knock out another 2 projects. I highly recommend Steve for his efficiency and reliability. Whatever you need done, Steve is your guy!

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.
