Mr. Moreno was really really good. He knows his stuff. Very professional and very thorough. He cleaned up after himself which a lot of workers don't do and I like that. My satisfaction was guaranteed. I would definitely recommend him to my neighbors and I would definitely hire him again.

Roger did an absolutely amazing job and was so easy to work with from the very start. He was extremely flexible when it came time to performing the work and came three days in a row to complete the project. At no point did he raise the price from his original quote due to the labor taking a little longer than planned as different problems popped up along the way. His pricing was extremely reasonable and I never felt like he was trying to take advantage of our lack of knowledge of the issues he was working on. Our family will definitely be using Roger again!

Mr Mayroga is the ultimate professional. He knows his trade, he charges a VERY REASONABLE. price for his services. I really appreciate that he listened to me, my explanation of having a terrible toilet placed by DWP. He gave me his priced and explained why the toilet jammed. The other plumber didn't listen and still warned that he would first have to access the situation at $180.00 starting price. Thank goodness for honest tradesmen like Platinum Plumbing. I'm already less stressed, and fully assured by Mr Mayorga that the situation will be handled and corrected. I'll even have him speak to my landlords about the dreadful toilets DWP are installing in people's home in the guise of saving water.

One I day clicked the switch for my garbage disposal and... nothing. Called AO Plumbing and George was quick to respond. He was presentable, brought the replacement part and exchanged it quickly. George gave me a reasonable price for the part and labor. In a world where there are tradesman are trying to take advantage of people who need help, George stands out with integrity. 5 Starr recommended.

Installation of flooring. I was not going to install in the kitchen flooring because of a cabinet that sits right above my fridge. Mike the owner said he would move the cupboard up an inch so the flooring and the cupboard would still leave room for the fridge. No problem and free of charge! How great right? He had his laborers do the flooring BEFORE and then told me he was unable to move the cabinet. Since he couldn't leave my fridge in the middle of the kitchen floor, he had his guy force it into place and cracked the cabinet. NOT only that, there was a vent that was suppose to go just under the front portion of the fridge which was already cut out....but now could not fit into the hole because the fridge was too tight against the upper cabinet. So...he had a piece of flooring cut and put into the hole with the grain going in the opposite direction!!!!!!!!! I now have a cracked and ruined cabinet, a floor with patchwork and will never be able to move my fridge for cleaning behind and under. I can only imagine what damage was done to the new flooring under the fridge. BTW, I work for a union contractor so the laughs on me.

I am not one who ordinarily takes the time to write a review concerning some work that I had done. In this case I am making an exception due to the experience that I had. I had some major backyard fence damage due to strong winds that also affected the adjoining neighbors on north and south side. Mark gave me a detailed invoice as to cost and labor and helped coordinate with my neighbors to split cost and he provided all of us with individual invoices that broke down all costs and labor. Mark is extremely knowledgable, very diligent and he constantly communicated with me to let me know about any concerns or issues that arose during the job. He has an engaging personality and a great sense of humor. His finished work was incredible. Better than I could have ever envisioned. His work ethic is outstanding. He started the work when he said he would and finished the work when he said he would, which has been an issue with other handyman contractors that I have hired in the past. I will hire Mark for every future job that I have and I highly recommend him to anyone that uses this site for referrals. I am happy to have been able to write this review and I know that anyone who reads this and hires Mark, will feel compelled to write their own glowing review. Thanks again Mark.

I am a General Contractor ,from Santa Barbara Area here for several upcoming projects we were hand chosen due to our high quality workmanship thus relocated as part of our deal, While here Wife decided to buy a second home ,not knowing any roofers we ran across his ad and decided to give him a shot either that or wait for our roofer from Santa Barbara to come here when his time allowed,I was hesitant due to the high standards and clientel we are accustom to In Santa Barbara my wife included ...To our amazement Toms personality as a person was a pleasure to work with on a professional level his work and his of qualitywork far exceeded what we were expecting down here ,Tom is capable to perform as directed without little if no input from us it went smooth,Other subs we hired here for our own personal projects saw me as the General and not as the client which we were not happy about , Tom saw beyond that knowing I am a general yet not on my personal property , he gave us A-1 treatment , quality of his workmanship is beyond what I expected if the need arose I would not hesitate to take him back home to Santa barbara as a subcontractor , however as for now we, click which makes my life easier to say the least so in regards to down this area I think I found one subcontractor I will keep....As for you others subcontractors from this area well it's probably in my best interest to just bring my subcontractors from Santa Barbara due the working relationship with me and their high quality of workmanship which I have built my reputation on , However Tom has proved himself beyond what I expected and I look forward to upcoming projects with him down south here as well as back in Santa Barbara if he's up for it his quality will fit right in up there with what the cliental expectsand high standards the client base expect in santa Barbara and like me Tom is hands on not the type of contractor who just sends workers and just shows up when it's time to pickup a check....as for his prices well it is a fair price for the quality and the pleasure of working with Tom.....Not to mention he is licensed insured etc. Tom like my self is not looking to get rich off one Job rather we know during these economic times things have changed and we have to change with it and like myself tom reflected that in His price, all these other subs heard I was from Santa Barbara and saw $$$$$ signs , somehow the general public has this conception all contractors have deep pockets , let me assure you it takes capital to make money and we have a lot tied up in Insurances , Bond's etc things the public has no idea about and although our cost have to adjust accordingly based on these economic times I can assure our Marerial's prices and labor expenses as well as insurance and bonds have only increased...So bottom line with Tom for a licensed Roofer and your protection your wasting time shopping around.

He was very detailed and did whatever was needed to get the job done properly, which was unfortunately a mess left by a previous worker. It was far more involved than initially appeared but David Barraclough stuck with his initial estimate given to me even though it took extra time and labor. Very nice, prompt and not afraid of work!!!

Rick from Rick's Plumbing is a true professional. He asked the correct questions, quoted me a reasonable price for both parts and labor. Additionally, he showed up on time, performed the exact work agreed upon and was friendly. Its been 24 hours since he performed the work and there are no more plumbing issues.

Jake was truly amazing. The guy is hardworking honest and he knows his stuff. Jake saved me tons of money on a kitchen bath remodel simply because he had all the tools and he is packed with ideas. Jake refinished my cabinets, counter tops, added a back splash, changed out light fixtures, faucets, the list goes on and on. It was a pleasure working with Jake especially because this was my first reno. he made it easy. All done with in 20 hours of Labor. Thanks Jake for an amazing Job! Pics coming soon :)

Not just excellent but outstanding. Yes he did a great job and was friendly and professional but the exceptional value he brought to the work was the ability to use his creative solutioningto to overcome the obstacles that always seem to happen no matter how easy the task would seem. Without missing a step he developed a solution when the microwave was taller than the original. I offered to buy another and he called Lowe’s for me to find one. But no need, he fixed so that it fit and looks great. Extra value to an already very fair price and expert workmanship. He’s my go to handyman now.

I needed an odd-sized interior door replaced and a front door repaired. Ron delivered exactly what a contractor should. He: 1) estimated at the work, 2) quoted a very competitive price for labor and materials, and 3) did excellent work on time and on budget. Ron will be the first place I look next time I need repairs made.

This was a fence installation and repair job. Chris responded very quickly to the service request. Although he showed up on time Chris was polite and professional. He fixed the broken door handle in 30 minutes. Charged the 3-hour minimum labor fee (perfectly reasonable) and left an itemized receipt and his business card. Will use Chris Handyman & Cleaning LA again.

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.
