Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a handyman charge?

Minimum rates for handyman jobs typically range from $60-$100. 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.

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 fees.

What do handymen charge per hour?

On average, you can expect to pay a handy person around $55 per hour. However, this cost can range between $35 and $80 per hour, depending on a number of factors. For instance, a handyman may charge a minimum fee of $50-$100 for small jobs that won’t take much of their time. The complexity of the job will affect the price as well. Your final price will also depend upon where you live, as certain regions have higher labor rates than others.

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.

Is it worth it to hire a handyman?

It’s worth it to hire a handyman in many cases. For example, you should hire a handyman when the project’s size and scope make it challenging to complete by yourself. These projects may include major home remodels or additions, foundation work or electrical/plumbing/HVAC-related tasks. However, make sure the handyman has the proper credentials or license to perform the necessary work.

You might also want to hire a handyman if a contractor’s price is too high. Handymen often charge less than general contractors, but contractors typically have the required license to perform certain tasks.

And, lastly, think about the complexity of the job and the cost of future repairs. It’s worth it to hire a handyman when the project is complex. Doing something incorrectly can wind up costing more than hiring the pro in the first place.

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.

Do handymen offer remote or virtual services?

Because a handyman needs to be physically present to perform work, they have not traditionally offered remote or virtual services. However, if you come across handyman profiles that state they offer remote services, message the handymen to see what those services include.

Confer with your handyman to see if consulting over video calls is possible. The professional may be able to walk you through performing basic plumbing, electrical, HVAC and other types of repairs around the house. Compare the handymen in your area side-by-side online, and ask whether they’re willing to help remotely.

I was so happy that I found this app and that I found Handy Capp Handyman... I had a leaky kitchen faucet that we needed to replace. I was impressed with the responsiveness and availability, he replied to my message promptly and he installed our faucet today. He was very professional and I will definitely use him for other jobs. My husband works long hours and doesn't have the time to fix things around the house. So I'm glad I found both the app and a handyman, thank you very much! 🙏 A satisfied customer :-)

He corrected mistakes made by my previous handyman and made repairs correctly that will last for years. He also hung an extra picture to ensure the frames lined up visually. I will call him again anytime I need repairs and recommend him to everyone I know!!

From the start Mani was on top of the requests, with very fast, comprehensive info, helping us learn Thumbtack, pic uploads, and being extremely patient with my questions. The dispatched handyman was next business day. He was fast and efficient and finished everything much faster than we expected. BlueFiks and their deep bench, and experience appear to adapt to all I could throw at them first call. We will be using them again.

I just moved to the area from the east coast and was looking for a reliable handyman. I was worried I couldn’t find one until I found Garnet on Thumbtack. Garnet was eager to help and incredibly honest. He is very professional and arrived on time. He was very friendly and got right to work. He installed a new faucet for me in no time at a fair rate and it looks beautiful. I plan to hire him for my other household needs.

I would’ve clicked all five highlights if the app let me!! First of all, when my other handyman cancelled last minute on me, Aaron swooped in to save the day and I’m so so glad he did!! Aaron did an amazing job and did two two separate projects very fast and efficiently!! I never once saw him take a break! He was able to bring my own wardrobe closet design to life better than I envisioned it! His work was and is very meticulous, and you can tell he really enjoys and is extremely good at what he does! Very clean work (as shown in the photos) which is perfect for my OCD! He even went above and beyond to set up my new mini fridge which I DIDN’T even ask him to do, and also switch out my strike plate since I changed my door handles! He even vacuumed my newly assembled furniture and my carpet from all the little debris and dust and cleaned up all the cardboard and trash at then end! His pricing is soooo affordable! Most other handyman are so expensive and don’t deliver as good quality as Aaron does so I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!

I recently hired Mauricio for some plumbing issues in our master bathroom. His pricing was great, he responded quickly, and he completed the work in a timely manner. I found it difficult to review Mauricio and to check the boxes that applied. I could only choose 3, but he more than deserved all 5. I didn’t check “Responsiveness” or “Punctuality”, because the review page wouldn’t let me. Let me assure you, Mauricio is at the top of the list for those categories as well as all of the rest of them. I highly recommend Mauricio for your handyman requirements, you won’t be disappointed!
