Bruce quickly responded to my request for a hot water heater repair, was at my house in under 60 mins on a Saturday. After an honest assessment that the whole heater needed to be replaced (my GE model was discontinued), Bruce was able to remove and install a new heater (with new valves, pipes, insulation, sediment trap) in under 4 hours. Very impressed, he’s definitely my new go-to guy!!

Fast super fast response. Very detailed explanation of what exactly was found we were also provided video / visual of the issue. Originally thought there was just a blockage in the main line, after further inspection with camera it was found that main line needed to be replaced. This was done fast, professionally, and everything was cleaned up as new when they were finished. Detailed invoice received with pictures of project and detailed explanation of problem and repair. Repair included 25 year warranty. Would definitely use and recommend Manny and his company again.

Javier was amazing! We will use him all the time for our repair needs. We had a washer and dryer on the fritz and he fixed both of them for a very very reasonable price. He is our new handyman for our home. So happy we found him. I recommend him to anyone!

Doug was referred to us by another vendor for repair of a front door on a rental house in Tustin. He was prompt and did an excellent job. Our tenant was also very pleased. His price was fair and we would use him again.

Just as described, AJ said for $89 he would inspect and even take care of any small repair if needed. He showed up on time. His inspection showed that we had bad wiring coming into the house. AJ called our electrical company and they came out to do the repairs. He charged the $89 which was what I expected. All in all no surprises and everything was perfect.

Houman did a wonderful job painting all of our bathroom cabinets and our hallway linen cabinets. He went out of his way to search for the right fitting hinges for our very old cabinets. He was also able to get the job done with very short notice. I will definitely call on him again for other home repair and project work.

My experience with Blue Streak Plumbing was very good. The plumber, Efrain, was extremely professional, communicated very well and was fair. He was very responsive during the Thumbtack selection process to find the right plumber and quoted me a fair price. Efrain arrived early and got to the root of my plumbing issue very fast. He showed me what he was doing every step of the way and educated me on what causes the plumbing issue. The repair work was very clean and professional looking. I would definable hire Blue Streak again and recommend their service to others

Golden Oaks Kitchen, Bath and Flooring company was our contractor to do all repairs on our home damages caused by water damage that happened to our home due to water leakage which was started from second floor bath room and flooded to 1st. floor damaging, dray walls, cabinets, laminates +++ .. at 1st. and second floors. This company started their restoration and repair works the day after we signed the contract. Their crew were very professional in their fields of repair and replacement, they were trying their best to satisfy us. Any time that we had comments for adding more repair at one area or paint the areas in a color to match other paints , they were not arguing that and wanted us to be happy with what we need and what they did for us. They were always on time and also helped us to deliver new cabinets, toilets ++++. Overall everything was done on a very smooth way, on time and the way that we wanted to be done.

Cedric and his wife are a great team. They showed up happy and ready to help. They assessed the situation and helped us to figure out what would be the best resolution to fixing our ceiling fans. While at our home they helped us explore and select some smart light switches so that we could turn lights on while we're away so that our dog wouldn't have to be in the dark. Overall, I would say the experience was like having a friend do some electrical work in our home. I would definitely call them again in the future.

Milton did a great job with the electrical work in our home! We had him add in a bunch of outlets, install a nest doorbell & security camera, install motion sensor lights & setup outlets for a tankless hot water heater and microwave. We were really happy with all the work he did and would definitely recommend him & use him again in our future. He was on time, responsive & professional. Thank you again for all your help!

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.
