Domingo and his team did an excellent job at making our backyard look like new again. Backyard had almost two years of neglect with overgrown plants and dead grass and trees. Domingo gave a very reasonable price for the whole job and took only a day to complete. They cleaned up and also had good ideas and suggestions about plants and placement. Definitely hiring him again and calling him back for monthly maintenance. He is also very courteous.

My partner and I interviewed four electricians before we found Mario. Instantly after the meeting, we knew we found our guy. Mario is responsible, communicative, and a straight-shooter. He's very knowledgeable about electrical work and you'll be impressed by his desire to implement best practices. We enlisted Mario to install two brakers, additional wall outlets, and kitchen lighting in our studio. He went above and beyond -- in addition to our original ask, he helped us with installation of the ceiling fan and outdoor sensor lights. We were so impressed by his professionalism and dedication to the task. He went out of his way to ensure our other contractors (general handymen and dry wall installer) were working in conjunction with his finished product. We're going to be remodeling our office next and will definitely be calling Mario back to help us out with new electrical! Thanks so much Mario (and congrats on your newborn)!

TJ was a Godsend to me in my third trimester of pregnancy! He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and courteous from our initial consult right thru the completion of the job. As others have stated in their reviews, it's a comfort to know his prices are what he quotes. Technically, the jobs I needed done were minor plumbing fixes but they were enormous to me pressed for time with family guests flying in and no clue of how and when I could fix them. TJ is friendly, timely, considerate and most of all efficient in getting my kitchen sink leak and my master bath leaks fixed in no time. I actually look forward to having him back to help me check other items off my list of home repairs and maintenance todo's. So worth every dime ;)

I am a general contractor who has used many flooring companies. These guys did all the wood laminate flooring on our multi unit project. I was really impressed with their ability to level the subfloor throughout the unit which was 1-1/2" out of level in some areas! They gave me an extremely reasonable rate and got the project complete in 2 days! I was really impressed with the outcome and would recommend them to anyone.

I contacted Al's Rooter for 2 leaking shower head faucets. Some initial research shows it was time to replace the inside cartridges. I'm comfortable with general repairs around the house but this was a bigger job that was best left to a professional. Al's Service was very informative and their approach made better sense then my initial plan. The quote was reasonable and the service is great. Didn't take very long but within the estimated time of work. Very happy with the results, no leaks and new faucet handles and cartridges included in the price as quoted.

Adrian team trimmed over 18 ficus trees, they were able to do it all in one day with not issues, they cleaned up tightly and had no issues cutting around the electric wires. Adrian was friendly and came by to quote the job, he was organized and detailed outlining what will be done and how long it will take. I felt like his price was very fair and he was an honest person. I am looking forward to working with Adrian and his team on regular maintenance for gardening and tree trimming. Plus Adrian trimmed a large palm tree for a bonus and now the entire neighborhood loves how it was cut. Great work!

Zuriel, is the best person I’ve ever had come and work on my projects. Very professional from the initial phone call, showing up on time, assessment of the project and providing constant updates to me and my sister. He had a person repair my broken water pipe, and then he drywalled the area after a few days to determine if the pipes were not leaking. Then another few days of painting and texture on the ceiling, drying and repeat. He matched the paints perfectly. Great value for the price and expertise. My schedule was chaotic and he worked around it and also with my sis to get the job completed on time. If he was running late, he sent me a text or called. I’m so pleased that I’ve walked him thru my house showing other projects. I know he is advertised as a painter but he is knowledgeable about other house maintenance projects.

I hired Garcias landscaping to clean up a very small yard. They removed old wood chips and laid the new ones I purchased and planted 6 small plants. The job was done to my satisfaction. Sadly I could not keep them for continuing maintenance. They are very expensive to cut the grass of a very small yard

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

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.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

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.
