Steve is my go-to handyman. He is very very good! Smart, responsible and really good at what he does. I hired him for a move that required a lot of furniture assembly. Not only did he do his job super fast, he also took on the management of my movers. I hired him for another project - a HUGE and very complicated IKEA wardrobe. He assembled it no time and no single bolt was left (you know how hard that is with IKEA). I love working with Steve and will definitely hire him again. I recommend him to all my family and friends.

After having another handyman bail on us halfway through a project, we were wary to trust somebody else, but Carlos proved to be super nice and responsible. He was very responsive over text and even takes payment via Venmo!

Brian was great! Very professional, punctual and responsive. He gave a fair estimate to fix our washer and dryer. When we needed a part he was nice enough to run over to Home Depot. He also showed us how to fix our mini refrigerator even though that was not included in our quote. He likes what he does and is always looking to learn more and that’s why he’s one of the best handyman’s around the area. Thanks Brian!

Matt is awesome! Super personable and does great work! He follows his word and can make your vision a reality. I showed him some pictures of a wedding altar I wanted to build (in order to hold vintage doors) and he executed exactly what I was looking for! I will definitely have Matt back for my next project! I highly recommend you hiring Matt for any handyman or carpentry needs.

I needed some paint and other hauling. I decided at the same time I would get a new kitchen faucet installed. Every aspect was flawless and pleasant. Good communication, fast response, first rate work, and a fraction of the price of others. I will use for my other handyman needs.

Milko did a fantastic job on painting the interior of our house. He provided everything that we needed, worked very carefully and efficiently got the job done in only a days. He was pleasant, responsive, on time, and very reliable - even coming back after a few weeks to do any follow on touch ups that we requested. I’d highly recommend for any paint work and consider for other jobs as well!

My husband and I had to renovate the home for AIRBNB and we had to get everything organize in a timely manner. Davis showed up promptly to help us clean the house and redo the rooms. He also went out of his way to assist us with prepping the living room. We totally recommend him for anyone who needs a reliable handyman.

Crespo did a great job of installing my very complex murphy bed. Not only did he complete the job but he made sure that it was secure and safe to use. Although, the pieces that arrived didn't fit like a puzzle piece; Crespo found alternative ways to make it work and function like it should! Great Job Crespo and I would use him again and recommend him to anyone!

Dan is awesome! After a plumber fixed the leaky faucet in my kitchen sink, he pointed out the rotted wood in the storage area underneath and suggested I contact a handyman to replace it. I feared this would be really expensive to fix. Through a google search for a handyman, I discovered Thumbtack, which then connected me to Daniel Ball. I was really surprised by how reasonable his original quote was and am still amazed that I ultimately didn't pay anything more, even after two hours of labor. Above all, Dan was very cooperative about setting up an appointment, arrived promptly, and worked efficiently. Plus he is super-personable and friendly. Finally, I can look at the space under my kitchen sink without having to groan. (Wish I had "before" and "after photos!) I highly recommend Dan as a handy man for your home!

Great experience with Mario! Unlike other handyman, he didn't ask to come and see the place but used my uploaded pictures of existing condition + rendering of the future work to give me a quote, which saved me a lot of time and hassle. The quote was very reasonable and he was very professional (showed up on time, issued work order + payment electronically, awesome quality).

They were so completely wonderful and professional. They met me at IKEA to get my cumbersome bed. They assembled part of it at their location and then showed up the next day to put together the pre-assembled pieces. That made it really convenient for me in my small house and kept it quiet as well. They were so friendly, kept to their times we had established, and professional every step of the way. I look forward to using them for other building/handyman/etc tasks at both my home and my business. Highly recommended!

Cody is an excellent pro! Not only did he do an amazing job with the electrical work needed done but also ended up doing some handyman work around the house. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs electrical/handyman work for a reasonable price and great work ethic.

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.
