I called Chris for a cracked pipe and a few broken sprinkler heads but there were a lot more problems than that. He fixed every thing for a good price and was fast too. My system is working like new now. He did a gate job. I will be calling back next time I need some work done.

Ron installed a new cedar fence and gate section for my elderly mom. It was perfect. It's really easy to open and close which was important for my mom. It couldn't have been easier. He bought the materials and installed it and now she has a nice new gate and fence. Highly recommend! He showed up on time and always answered my texts promptly. His price was really reasonable too!

Highly recommended! We hired Robin to build a fence and some gates for us. In addition to doing an excellent job on the initial project we ended us using him for a 5 other smaller jobs. Two of those included kitchen appliance re-installations that were extremely difficult because they had previously not been repaired or installed correctly by others. Really, this guy can fix anything! He also fixed a broken front door jam that that others said could not be repaired and must be replaced, saving us a couple thousand for a new front door. We would absolutely use him again in the future. Thanks Robin :)

We hired Cota Ventures for our driveway gate project (7 gates total). From design, to proposal to finished product, Tim was a pleasure to work with and handled each step of the way with refreshing professionalism! My husband works out of town a lot, so I was a little nervous about handling this project mostly by myself. I needn't have worried though. Tim treated me with respect, and never made me feel bad for asking silly questions. A well deserved good review for a job well done!

My irrigation pipes burst and caused water to drain from underneath my driveway next to my lawn. Mateo Pedro (MP) was quick to respond when I posted the job and he met with me the same day at 5pm. He dug up part of the lawn and provided a preliminary assessment on his own time. MP was kind, courteous, and professional. He quoted me a flat price that was very fair considering the work that had to be done without knowing the entirety of the problem. He took the time to evaluate my irrigation system and provided tips on improving lawn maintenance. I contracted with MP and he showed up a 7am the next morning and fixed the problem that day and after completing the repair he did a great job of cleaning up. I would definitely recommend MP if I have any additional handyman work in the future. Great Job Mateo!

I have no other words other than awesome! Greg is very skilled, organized, and efficient. My job was completed in less time than expected, was reasonably priced, and he even returned my surplus paint to me in case I needed to do touch ups later. He constructed, painted, and installed a gate for my property. I am very pleased, and will definitely use him again when needed.

We hired ERCAN for a bunch of odd jobs: hanging curtains on tall windows, installing a baby gate, fixing a broken toilet water valve, covering our side gate with aluminum mesh and painting it, installing outdoor security cameras, and installing a new smart lock on our front door. They were punctual, went to Home Depot/Lowes for any parts that they needed that we did not already have, and worked very hard on each project. They had me check all of their progress as they finished each task to make sure it was too my liking. The only downside was that their initial quote was way lower than the actual cost as they underestimated the amount of time and work each job entailed, but they did work very hard (and even on a hot day like today with our AC on the fritz!) and I think the price we ended up paying them was fair and well earned.

I hired Mark to clean my garage door and my driveway and the side of my fence with a pressure washer machine. Driveway had some paint and fluid from the truck and garage door and fence had bird crap and random marks. He got everything off and it looks good as new.

I'm glad the original contractor (Joe) never showed up for the job 8am per appointment (we cleared the garage and put everything in the yard out in the open ready foe Joe. You can just image how frustrated we were when the contractor did not show up or even call by 4pm). Mario from Creative responded to my online search and start working that very evening. Mario went the extra mile preparing before applying the epoxy paint on the garage floor. It was all completed the very next day. First class workmanship. While we waiting for the floor to dry. We already scheduled for Mario to come back next week to start working on the driveway. Two thumbs up highly recommended. D 9/9/2016

Eddie was fantastic! We hired him to install a new bedroom door for us. He got here right on time and did an excellent job. He was professional and even cleaned up the sawdust in the driveway after the door was installed which I thought was very nice! I would hire him again for sure.

Jerry painted a 50" wood fence and 6" gate for us. He provided turnkey service, including a day of priming, color-matching and procuring the paint, and doing two days of painting. He was punctual and courteous throughout and the fence looks great. I'll definitely hire Jerry again if needs come up.

You can tell by his work he have professional experience for over 35 years. I like how professional his work is done & how polished it is when it"s completed. I had my bathroom painted, a wood frame covered up pluming that the last handyman left out. He helped fix up work that the last handyman left poorly. So I trusted in him to insert 2 bedroom new doors and a wooden gate for my driveway. I highly recommend him. He speaks perfect English & Spanish.

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.

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.

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.
