Kevin was responsive, communicative and clear. He arrived when he said he would. was knowledgeable about sprinkler and irrigation system mechanics and quickly grasped our specific layout. He worked quickly, needed very little direction and put a long-term plan in place for maintenance and optimization of the system. AND - he cleaned up after himself! We will be using Kevin for all of our irrigation needs moving forward

David was great! He works normally as maintenance man for an apartment complex, but he came to our place after work hours to help unclog our garbage disposal and shower drain and did a great job clearing some unruly glass items in the disposal and dealt with rust on the shower drain. He was honest and upfront about everything and explained what the issues were as he fixed them. He did this all for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of plumbing or other handyman sort of work for your house or apartment. Thanks David!

Carlos did a fantastic job helping me install screen doors, as well as hanging shelves, hanging a curtain rod and a few other general tasks. I needed to shorten some IKEA wall shelves to fit my wall and Home Depot said it couldn't be done -- Carlos did it! He is friendly and courteous as well. Would recommend.

I was in a time crunch, and needed a falling fence repaired asap. Matt responded quickly to my initial request, as well as every subsequent email/text. We scheduled a visit the next morning, where he inspected the damage, and described a couple of options for the repair. That same evening, he sent us a quote with a reasonable and competitive price, and luckily was able to squeeze us into his schedule, despite only a couple days notice. The first day of the job, Matt and his team showed up on time, and got straight to work tearing out our old, rotting fence. Their work was clean and tidy, and they even made the extra effort to accommodate us in removing all of the debris that day, as we were scheduled to have photos of the yard taken. They returned the next morning to construct a beautiful, new fence, built to the highest standards. Afterwards, they cleaned up, ensured our yard was returned to it's original condition, and even helped us out by taking some extra yard compost with them, which had been left behind by the city. In the past, my experience w/ other contractors in general had been less than positive. Cost, communication, and especially workmanship on several jobs had become such a concern, that recently, I have been simply attempting most projects myself, if at all possible. My experience with Matthew Kelly Construction has been a breath of fresh air compared to these other interactions. Throughout the entire job, he and his team were incredibly considerate, accommodating, and some of the friendliest people I have ever worked with. Not only would I hire Matt again in a heartbeat, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality carpentry/construction work.

Gleo is one of the most honest handymen I've had the pleasure of hiring. He came to our home, checked out our AC and pointed out how the air filter was clogged and the mesh around the condenser outdoor was dirty. He replaced the filter on his own dime and also cleaned the mesh around the condenser to improve the airflow and it fixed the problem. He recommended that I check the filter and the area around the condenser frequently and do my own preventative maintenance so that I don't have to spend money on a professional in the future at the cost of his own future business. I am glad I hired Gleo and whole heartedly recommend him for any handyman projects. I'll be hiring him definitely for my next project.

Miguel, Luis and team did an fantastic job at our new place. We wanted to get started with landscaping and maintenance but had to clean up the yard that had a lot of outgrowth, poison ivy, tall grass etc. Their quote was not the lowest but the most knowledgeable as they scoped it correctly. Miguel was in contact through the process and was sure to only eliminate the bad species. We are considering hiring them ongoing maintenance as well

I recently moved into a new home and needed to find someone to mow my backyard lawn that was very overgrown. At least 3 feet tall! I contacted Mowers n Blowers Landscaping and by the next day they were able to give me an affordable quote and provide service the same day! I only asked for my lawn to be mowed at this time but will be having them come back on a bi-weekly basis to maintenance the rest of my property. I am very pleased with the results and highly recommend them! Thank you, Keith for your excellent service!

Kelly was the first vendor to reply to my Thumbtack project. He was also very easy to communicate with (e-mail, phone call and text) and responsive during the whole job. He had to make a couple of trips due to hardware I needed, so we were in touch over about a week's time. His pricing is very fair as well. I do recommend his services. I will be calling on him again no doubt as he also does general repairs and projects in addition to electrical work! Thank you, Kelly!!

We had been paying general contractors pricing for jobs around the house that we knew we could get lower competitive bids for. Karla sent Miguel out to access our project needs. In having Miguel review our project list, we found out that they are very reasonable and guaranteed the work. They made our project easily manageable; within our budget and busy schedule (even Saturdays if necessary). While we occupied our home, Miguel painted the interior and exterior of our house. Miguel's crew paid attention to dust controls within the house, working around two large dogs in the house and yards and privacy issues with family members. The crews attention to detail was impressive, Miguel quickly resolved any issue that came up. Miguel has many talents other than painting, and was given other projects around our property. We will use this company again.

Enrique showed up on time and went above and beyond for the extensive one-time weeding project I hired him for. Not only did he beautifully clear the areas we discussed he also cleared a few additional small areas and also cleared all the weeds in the sidewalk/walkways/driveway edges. He even edged the yard while he was there. Everything was left immaculately clean after he was done. I've decided to hire him for bi-weekly lawn maintenance as I was so thoroughly impressed with his timeliness, responsiveness, fair prices and high quality work.

I hired Guillermo to do my yard maintenance. He arrived when he said he would, was very easy to communicate with, and gave me a very reasonable price. I have a very small front yard and a huge back yard, both of which are weeds instead of grass. He is doing a good job of gradually clearing out the weeds while keeping the area trimmed to a manageable height. I look forward to continuing to see the progress of the yard.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

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.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

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.
