I really liked the work that he did for us at home. We had just planned to do a granite countertop, but we had various other things that needed to get done. He was quite the handyman and left everything clean...definitely will call again when needed.

Jamie did some plumbing and hung a patio blind in one of our rentals. He responded quickly, assessed the problem and fixed it the next day. I would use him again for any handyman needs.

I do believe since moving to Palm Desert 2 1/2 years ago this is the first time I have had a worker (handyman) arrive at the time he said he would be here. Both my husband and myself are Handicapped so you can imagine what a mess our garage was. This company went over and beyond what I originally had asked for. They helped us get better organized. I put away things where they belong (the last handyman we had shoved everything where he could. So when Mr. ARDILA’s coworker Came to me with brand new items in the plastic bags you pay 1.00, I was surprised. We are going to use him for our next project as well (my closet).”The Handyman” gets a thumbs up from us. Great job ! Respectfully, John and Anita Burris

Great 👍👍. If I had more thumbs, would give him more. Had a difficult hand held shower that broke that left rusty screws inside tile. Alan was able to remove and install new hand held shower and cannot even tell that there a problem before. He is kind, handy (this called a handyman) honest, reasonable, and explains the job in hand before he starts. No surprises.

Paul is awesome! I had a couple of projects I couldn't put off anymore, and thanks to Paul-they are done! He did an excellent job! I have a variety of other projects to do, and made my list for him. Paul had some excellent suggestions to make the projects work, and I never would have known or thought of them. He is very personable and extremely knowledgeable. In addition, his pricing is reasonable and affordable. I'm so excited that I have found the perfect handy-man! Now I can fix up my house, knowing the work is done correctly. When my friends are looking for help with their home- Paul will be the first person I recommend. He will definitely be the person I hire with all my home repairs and improvements!

As I was unaware of the complexity of the cabinet needing to be removed in order to install a dishwasher, John was able to remove it and put in the dishwasher without any major obstacles. I am happy with the outcome. Have asked John to undertake more projects as well.

Eddie was very responsive with his quote - I liked that he quotes for the whole job, rather than per hour. This makes way more sense to me, so I can budget for this. Work quality is excellent - he said he can do the jobs, which he provided efficiently, without difficultly, and was punctual and got it all done within two hours, even going to Home Depot to get some hardware needed to install our new security door, and buy replacement shingles that were blown off from our garage, which he perfectly matched. Eddie is an awesome Handyman, and I highly recommended him!


I do repairs, yard work, cleaning, painting, moving, housecleaning, all types of errands and other miscellaneous work. I do windows and pull weeds. I am a hard worker established in Hemetwork.


I can do that. I have been working as a handyman for over 10 years. I can do almost anything. If I can't, I will tell you. I finish/repair other people's work when they don't deliver as promised.


We offer all classes of construction, remodeling and demolishing. We do everything that has to do with construction. Whatever the customer wants, we will do it. We offer reasonable prices.


We make everything better, from houses to landscapes, trim trees, clean front and backyard, home repair and much more.

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.
