I am very pleased with Casey's work, his professionalism and yes - being here when he said he'd be! It did take a couple weeks to be able to get on the calendar, but my work wasn't anything critical, or I'm sure he would have been out here ASAP. I highly recommend Mooney's Handyman Service!

I own a home in Merced, CA, it is a rental property for me. I have annual inspections by Section 8 and I had a repair list. Jacob took care of all repairs efficiently without no hassle, even made the appointment with the tenant. All repairs were taken care of in 1 day, and I passed the inspection. Job well done.

Ken and Brandon did an excellent job on my fence repair project. Ken gave me a GREAT price and followed through with great service. They even did me a favor and showed up on a Saturday when the forecast was to be 106 degrees. They completed the job in a few short hours and I was very pleased with the job as was my neighbor. I would highly recommend "Fix-AllHandyman" for any and all of your repair needs. Thanks again, Ken and Brandon!!!

Raymond was very very helpful and flexible with his schedule. I initially hired him to assemble multiple beds and a shelf after a cross country move. But he happily stayed extra time to help me hang pictures and out up curtain rods and do a number of other small things. The time for this was not accounted for in the original work order. Even though the original quote was only for four hours he worked for an additional 3 hours with no notice until he completed everything I had requested him to do. One could not ask for better customer service.

Troy has been wonderful about doing odd jobs for me. Has always done great work, reasonably, and in a timely fashion. Has done a real variety of things. From leak under kitchen sink, setting flagpole, install new toilet (which flooring had to be replaced), to building a ramp for wheelchair. And many others. Would recommend him to anyone. Really appreciate what he has done.

Ian has been my go to handyman a few times now. He has done electrical, plumbing, and build me a variety of wooden things. If I ever need anything fixed or just inspected I know who to call. His prices are fair and his work is detailed. I have added a few pics of work he has done around my home.

    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.

    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.
