Tom did an excellent job. He fixed four jammed doors and a fence gate in two hours. He was accurate and polite. The only con was the price: $250. However, I was given the same estimate before, so it wasn't a surprise. Altogether, I'd recommend him to anyone who is seeking a good handyman.

Scott answered all my questions and came out to meet with us and give us a quote. He gave us a timeline of working on our driveway and was very good about calling and updating me with what time he would be at my house. We wanted our driveway extended and a walkway torn up and a new one put in with cement. We are very happy with the way it turned out and have already talked to Scott about other projects we need done.

I hired John a few weeks ago to fix a list of small items that were broken or not working around our house. I picked him because he is skilled in many areas: carpentry, plumbing, electric wiring, etc. he has a master's degree as a civic engineer, and his knowledge goes far beyond understanding individual tasks. He fixed our front window, our ceiling fan, the bathroom plumbing, our garage gate, our front door lock, and removed our big old did Swamp Cooler from the roof, which he then patched. We also laughed at each other's jokes. We have more left for him to do, after the current heat wave passes. I recommend him highly.

Bruce did an excellent job installing an upstairs window air conditioner and even was able to install in preferred location which we thought impossible. He also identified a safety hazard that we did not know about and fixed it. He really knows what he’s doing and his prices are extremely reasonable.

Hired Al for 2 small steel fence/gate projects. Al provided great recommendations to save money but still have the quality I wanted for a fence. He was very responsive and started the project the day after I decided to hire him. He finished the projects in half a day.

We had an amazing experience working with Jay! He was able to get the work done in a timely manner, and did stellar work - we seriously have never worked with a more precise and tidy painter. We are so happy with how our gate and door turned out, and he did a great job installing molding on our exterior window and painting it. He is truly a great guy and we couldn't recommend him more!

Dan is a true handy-man! His attention to detail is impeccable - he will not stop until you’re satisfied with the project. He is a jack-of-all-trades and is so knowledgeable about everything you need done around the home... from installing a tv mount, to building kitchens, hanging lights, or installing a barn door, to changing thermostats or sanding down cabinets and so much more. Just ask and he will help. He is trustworthy, very responsible, honest, and passionate about any project he decides to take on. You are in very good hands with Dan. I highly recommend him!

Ross did a number of jobs for us and was truly a pleasure to work with. Very professional, honest and fair. Showed up every day at the same time so I never had to wait around or wonder if he was coming. His work was excellent quality and we really hope to work with him again on future projects. Just a few of the projects he did for us was paint the whole exterior of our home, replaced rotted beams, built a new gate, and installed baseboards.

Sean is our go to guy for everything in our home that needs TLC or something new installed, or to figure out what's wrong and needs to be done. He has mounted light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, re-hung a difficult gate, repaired a cabinet better than the last carpenter I hired. Re-thought my gutters and repaired area's that weren't performing. Even installed a new outdoor bearing post on my covered patio that had been eaten away by time. Sean is the best and so professional. My whole family loves him!

I've hired Dominic Coatney to do several jobs at my house. These include: custom-made wooden gates for the backyard, repairing a broken 40 year-old rocking chair with sentimental value, and repairing/ replacing the rotting wood trim on the roof, so that we could install new rain gutters. Everything he has done has been top-notch, high quality work. In addition, he's always done the work quickly and at a very reasonable price.

...But, if I never ran into this guy, I'd have at least a dozen unfinished projects, and a lot of extra bills. I met Taylor in line at Home Depot. I was buying some hardware and some paint. I noticed his cart was stacked with fencing material and being I'm virtually worthless with even basic construction and needing a new fence myself, I asked him what he was working on. We ended up talking for almost 30 min outside and he helped me load my paint into the car. He asked a lot of questions and even had examples of fencing he installed on his phone. I was buying the paint and hardware to repaint and fix my shed door. I couldn't mess THAT up right? Wrong, he offhandedly mentioned that I had purchased an interior paint that would discolor and fade quickly on a shed. Anyway, I had numerous projects that needed to be done. I ended up having Taylor put in an entire new shed, repair my back fence, build me some custom gates, and a many other tasks. I regularly call him with questions and he almost always has an answer. He's a very well-spoken, knowledgeable, and friendly guy. For my wife and I, he's sort of become a regular around the house, we've had him coming over for more than a year. Our four year old son gets so excited when he comes because he always gets to watch. Goodbye Garbage man, Hello Handy man! Thank you Taylor! Hope this helps you. Geoff, Susan, & Alex

My Security double gate was installed and finished today. They did a beautiful job and I am very happy with the result. I plan to hire them again for a larger project and my neighbor also asked for a business card for a project on his property. Communication is most important to me and once I let the Project Manager know this he called me nearly every day with updates. I don't mind if there is a delay or if my appointment needed a slight change as long as the communication was respected and it certainly was. I highly recommend Three J's handyman service and plan to continue to hire them for my future projects and I am also recommending them to Family, Friends and my Co-workers. No complaints at all. Thank you.

Kent Fletcher, the No Regrets Handyman, arrives on time, takes pride in his work, is reasonably priced for services rendered, doesn't leave a mess, dependable, and is just a nice guy. You will not have any regrets if you hire him. He's built a fence and gate for me, cleaned out and repaired leaky rain gutters, repaired broken woodwork, and painted.

Brunswick has handled a multitude of jobs for me, both at my primary residence as well as at my rental properties. Painting, flooring, picture hanging, cabinet installation, rigging, gate + fence repair, toilet reinstall, and he even made a storage door from scratch. He continues to be my go-to handyman, painter and fix-it professional. I have come to trust him, and his dedication to his work and standards, implicitly. Brunswick has a can-do mentality, is a hands-on problem solver and is willing to offer creative options when presented with a challenging and unforseen obstacle. He takes pride in creating solutions and seeing each job not just to the end, but to complete satisfaction. We have run into a few situations where Brunswick took the time to brainstorm and think outside of the box, and the problem was able to be solved. He's a bit like MacGuyver that way. That's a good thing. His work is done in a timely manner, but always putting the quality of the job at the forefront. If it takes a bit longer to do it right, and with the right materials, he will and it's worth it. Brunswick always shows up with a smile on his face and a pep in his step. He is one of those people that is genuinely enjoyable to be around. What he does not bring to work...an ego. Brunswick is honest, thoughtful and will say when something is beyond his scope. That is a reassuring quality when working on one's home. Overall I give Brunswick five shiny, bright stars. I have been happy with his work in the past and will continue to utilize his expertise going forward. Good people are hard to find, in work and in life. He's a keeper.

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.
