Juan was an excellent handyman. I had him come to hang a few pictures and with a few quick instructions he hung everything up with care and attention to detail. Would definitely hire him again in the future! Thanks Juan :)

This technician was so diligent I had a crash after my computer installed new updates. It was a mess to figure out. He came and worked on it for 3 days. He wouldn't take any money until he repaired the problem. I was so impressed with his knowledge about computers. He said he would have to reinstall windows 7. I didn't have the lic. # until I contacted the person who put the program in. When we finally got the # Alexey was able to repair my computer. I would highly recommend him to fix any computer.

Very happy with the experience. I explained what I wanted and he was honest enough to tell me it might not be the smartest choice for my situation, even though he would have received compensation for doing it anyway. He was SO nice and friendly when he came in. Worked quickly...even came early! I will be calling back next time I'm in need of a good handyman.

Due to extremely high wind over the weekend, our wooden fence became wobbly and highly unstable. After minutes of placing a repair request, Jamie responded promptly and was able to come over and assess the damage within a short time later. In person, he's highly professional and courteous with a big genuine smile. The quote was affordable, reasonable and highly competitive. The work was successfully and professionally completed in just a few hours the following day. He also nicely cleaned up the work space and its close vicinity. Overall, we are greatly impressed with his high quality of work, his punctuality and dependability, his affordable pricing and his professionalism. We'll definitely keep Jamie as our go-to handyman for future repair and maintenance works.

So incredibly professional, efficient, and incredibly gifted handyman. If there's a problem he can fix it and basically any furniture he can assemble. I thought this desk would have been impossible - Amazon Assembly would have charged me double and estimated 3-4hrs of assembly just for the desk. Thank God for Thumbtack, because this guy knocked it out in an hour and as you can see it looks amazing!

Ray was great! I needed a bed put together and Ray was able to do it same day. He showed up early. We didn't have the instructions anymore but we showed Ray a couple pictures and he did it perfectly. We already talked to Ray about some other projects around the house that we will be needing. Definitely recommend Ray for your handyman services!

I needed a lock changed out with a stripped screw and a closet shelf reinstalled; and I needed it done ASAP. Mark was great! He made himself available within a couple of hours, he was on time and completed the work efficiently and quickly. He was extremely respectiul, takng off hs shoes before entering my home and he even cleaned up after himself. He also went above and beyond installing a extra security measure for my safety incase of a break in which I really appreciated. I would definetly recommend Mark for any handyman work needed. He is a very competent and a super nice guy. Thank you for your help! Kirsten

We hired this handyman to do some odd jobs around the house. Very nice, on time, professional, respectful and most importantly, did a good job with the tasks provided. We hired him a second time to build posts on our deck to run string lights. It looks fantastic. We plan to hire him a third time to paint our bathrooms.

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.
