Thank you, Tom!!! Tom came out on July 4th to help me, after another Thumbtack “pro” no-showed the prior day. AMAZING. It was a fairly simple job but it meant a great deal to me that he completed it on a holiday. Tom was totally professional, polite, and helpful in every way. I highly recommend Tom and will definitely reach out to him again for home repairs needs.

I’m a handyman who knows nothing about electrical. When I came across some electrical issues I called a friend I trust to see if they knew an electrician. My friend referred Mr. Poole and I was very pleased with him all around. I thought that I may need to replace about a dozen exterior lights on a property and almost order them but Mr. Poole advised me they could be repaired. In stead of my client having to spend over 2 grand on new lights they were able to all be repaired for about $75! Overall he’s a solid guy.

Shay is very professional and works hard. The project takes longer than expected. But there is always great altitude and no complain. Shay even come back to fix some small issues in the installation. At the end, the work is perfect, and the value is unbeatable. I will hire her again for future projects. Thanks, Shay

I highly recommend working with David for your home upgrade needs. If you are looking for a good honest professional and best value for money, then you should contact him. David modernized our fireplace which included new tile and custom mantle. David was professional and treated our home as if it were his own through the project. We were hands down satisfied with his work and plan to contact him for our next project. Thanks David!

His work quality is very high and I couldn't be happier with the installation. I highly recommend Leo for TV Installation or other electrical repairs throughout your home.

Aaron is fantastic! Very reliable, competent and does clean work. I had him repair my landscape lighting and called him back to install a ceiling fan. I called him again to install bookcase lighting. He did a very good, clean job and was able to hook my lights up to an existing switch. This guy rocks. Call him, you won't be disappointed!

What a great guy! Polite, honest, reliable, proficient and completely a pleasure to work with. And, more reasonably priced than most. John did some drywall repair and some other miscellaneous things. Then, hired him again for a few more projects and have given out his info to friends who need a handyman. I would definitely recommend John.

Jason was easy to communicate and work with. He was very responsive and able to commit to an appointment quickly. He arrived on time and completed the work exactly as we discussed for the same price he quoted. I would recommend him for any drywall repair project and would work with him again in the future if his services were required.

Chris is a great plumber who truly values making sure your home is operational and safe. He is a no-nonsense guy and does not quote you by job but by hour which makes it the best way to truly feel you are getting your monies worth. He also came back free of charge a few weeks later just to make sure all of his repairs worked effectively.

Thumbtact did the "Blind/Shade Repair" research for me and several companies contacted me and gave me a quote to repair my two sets of French door shades. I went with Todd Ashley of AB Blinds. Upon arrival Todd examined my two sets of French door shades and told me that only one set of French door shades needed repair. Todd completed the repair in less than an hour. The final price was obviously less than the quote. The shades work like new and I am very happy with the work that was done and the price I paid.

Albert and his team have come though for me countless times over 10 years. He has repaired and recovered home sofas, brought my '64 Caddilac deVille back to factory interior, replaced the convertible top with a modern look. Most recently he did a 100% custom interior on my '59 Apache Truck including seats, carpet, and headliner all at an amazing value and always with a huge smile. Thanks Again, Eric G @paitina_apache

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.
