We needed a toilet fixed. Also some excess items removed around the house. This company was very professional, friendly, courteous, and on time. We cannot say enough about how Brian completed the work and assessed the situation. He was polite, professional, and extremely dedicated. If you're looking for a handyman, this stuff from the company to use.

Abel is great, he was so helpful with my kitchen project. He’s very professional, on time, friendly, knowledgeable, very responsive in communication, high quality work, and charges fairly. I highly recommend him for demo, junk removal hauling, and handyman services like cabinet installation and tile work.

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

I hired Doug to install 2 wall timers that turned on outdoor patio lights for security purposes. I could usually tackle something like this on my own but was stumped because of the complicated wiring. He did this in less than half hour. Wow! I would hire Doug again without hesitation. He was the most thorough and knowledgeable electrician / handyman I've ever encountered in my ENTIRE LIFE! He worked quickly and was on time and pleasant and very knowledgeable when I asked him questions about electrical problems. Doug is a gem!

Adrian is a five-star handyman who is prompt, responsive and technically proficient. I requested him to fix a window, and he arrived on time and well prepared to handle the request. He worked hard and completed the job successfully. If I have the opportunity to hire him again, I would. Highly recommended.

Bruce put in 2 sheets of glass where we had none before, only burglar bars. He also sealed the entire window. It's SO much quieter now and he was super fast and responsive. Everything was as he said it would be and we will use him for all future projects! Very confident in his abilities :)

Tony did a wonderful job mounting my metal pegboard. He arrived promptly and had my project mounted securely to the wall in under 45 minutes. He was professional and courteous through out the installation process.The item happened to arrive with 6 screws and 6 wall anchors rather than the necessary 12 screws and 12 wall anchors. Tony was prepared and had extra screws and wall anchors in his tool kit, so it was not a problem. Should I have a need for a handyman in the future, I will give Tony a call!

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.

After moving my business to a new bigger location, I realized I needed a new phone system that would accommodate our needs. I contacted three companies to get competitive bids. Although Gary "The British Handyman" was not the least expensive, I decided to go with him. His professionalism and knowledge made me feel confident that he would do the job right. Not only did he complete the job in the time frame promised, he also found a way to save me money on the services I required. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

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.
