Sergey couldn't fix my issue but he was really nice, seemed very competent and didn't charge me for the job since the repair wasn't complete. It was a tough repair so I'd still hire Sergey for other projects.

Harp and his team did an excellent job! "I was very impressed with this company from start to finish. They communicated professionally throughout the duration of the project, etc." I can see why they have a high rating. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a tv and projector mounting, dry wall repair and general house repair, top quality job for a very fair price.

Fast response to come out and review a non urgent repair (slow leaking pipe). Very easy to schedule using the app and showed up on time. Booked a few weeks later to do the repair. Nice work and would call again for other repairs.

He was honest about how much work actually needed to be done. Other electricians were telling me I needed to do a bigger repair than necessary. It might have just been different perspectives on the problem and not intentional dishonesty on their part. However, his repair suggestion actually matched what PG&E told me when they came out to do a diagnosis. It saved me tons of money, which I appreciated as a single parent on a teacher's salary.

Toby was great. He arrived on time, reviewed the set of problems, gave immediate quotes and also suggested which services of his are more expensive than choosing a different solution or doing simple things myself. In the end he did all changes I asked for very professionally and visited me twice with only seeking payment for the one time did do some repair work.

Mauricio came to my home and provided an estimate to paint my Master Bedroom, Closet, Bathroom and Family Room. The price was very reasonable and Mauricio gave me a detailed explanation on how the job would be completed and a time frame. Mauricio and his crew showed up on time and completed the job in record time! They were very professional and neat! He also completed some repair work for me outside of painting. A Big Bonus! I am definitely pleased with the outcome and would hire them again!

Jeff remodeled our bathroom. Tore out the existing vanity, mirror and flooring, spackled and textured the walls, repainted, installed vanity, vanity lights, tub/shower faucets, new shower door and installed hard wood flooring. He was thorough, dedicated and an exceptionally good value. You will be hard pressed to find better workmanship and a greater value elsewhere. I will be using Jeff again for any additional home repairs.

Salamat went above and beyond! He installed window hardware and drapes for me. He really took the time to discuss with me the best height and position. I was reusing old window hardware (that I love!) and my hardware store didn’t have black screws - I was planning on going over them after installation with black nail polish, but Salamat had black screws in his kit! We also discovered that one of my finials was broken, and he figured out a way to repair it so it could still be used. I can’t say enough about how positive my experience was. I will definitely hire him again!

Jerry did a great job repairing a broken sprinkler pipe in my lawn. He contacted me soon after I posted on Thumbtack, came by and quoted the job, then showed up when he said he would to do the work. The area where the work was done was left clean and the system once again works great. I highly recommend All Season for any type of lawn care or landscaping work.

I had a Kitchen drain that was clogged. David responded, we agreed on a reasonable offer and he was out the next day to complete the job. He was kind, professional and on-time (even a couple of minutes early). He put down a plastic tarp around the work area and was very clean and cleaned up after himself. I was VERY pleased with his responsiveness and work overall, I would def call him for any future repairs. He hit every mark on what one expects from a service professional and I think you'd make a good choice going with him. I have had to hire a plumber at a previous residence and it cost twice as much for a similar job. Glad I found him!

Marvin repaired our water heater after our basement was flooded. He was prompt in responding with a reasonable estimate and explained the repair options upfront with the anticipated cost for each option. He was friendly and professional and completed the repair in a timely manner. We would absolutely reach out to him for future plumbing needs.

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.
