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 :)

What a great experience! TJ is such a pro, he gave me a fair price, worked out details when the electric connection for the patio fan installation wasn't up to standard. He never charged me additionally to fix the connection or to make adjustments for the new retractable screen door to fit my weird sloping opening. The new fan was so great the he suggested we get a second for the other side and gave a good price to install it. I'd hire him again (and there is still plenty to do). So glad I used THUMBTACK at a friend's suggestion. I found an amazing, honest handyman!

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!

Saeed was very attentive from the moment we started discussing our company's project and responded quite promptly to every question. He and his co-worker arrived 5 minutes early to our office with their own gear and got to work immediately. They put together 22 very complicated IKEA desks and 3 shelving units in about 6 hours, made a minimal mess, and were very respectful of our space. I would definitely hire him again!

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!

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.
