Best handyman to date. Originally I called Kevin to change my shower head but by the time he arrived I had a short list of things that I needed help with. Not only did Kevin take care of all my shower but he also completed my list walked me through the the process so in the future I can do it myself. Kevin is very pleasant, and knowledgeable and I would recommend his outstanding service.

Dave is an amazing professional and does a very neat job at a very reasonable price. Very responsive over texts and very versatile with the tasks. Not only did he accompany us to Home Depot and gave recommendations, but also carried the new toilets in his truck and hauled away the old one. He wore the hat of a plumber as well as a handyman, Fixed a number of minor repairs around the house. Not only that, one of our toilets had a broken part after he left and he came back to fix it free of cost. I have never had such a pleasant experience with a plumber/handyman in the past as a home owner. Thanks Dave and will hire you again!

Bill is a dependable do-it-all handyman. He was super responsive with all his communications from the initial quote to follow ups. He arrived timely as promised. What impressed me a lot was he is super honest and will give you a straight up assessment of what can and cannot be done and offering the best price possible. While I had him install a new kitchen faucet, he found additional water piping to replace (as the original builders did not do it up to par) at no additional cost. A friendly and quirky guy, that brings honest and dependable service!

Andres was FANTASTIC! He responded to a small job we posted during a kitchen renovation for a complicated appliance install. I couldn't find anyone who could do it. He showed up ready to do whatever it took. He offered great input in helping us make decisions, always said it was no problem to make it happen, and got right to work. He had all the tools necessary to get the job done. He was clean and courteous. His wife worked with him and she was quiet and clean as well. We ended up giving him almost 3 days of work and he far exceeded the work we had previously done (he stained our wood counter tops). We will be hiring him for all our handyman/construction needs in the future. We highly recommend him.

I would like to take this time to thank Dinh Nguyen for the excellent job he did for me. I had a leak in my kitchen sink so I posted my problem on line. Within minutes of the post, I received a call from Mr. Nguyen. I explained the problem to him, and he was able to come to my home within an hour of the phone call. He discovered where the leak was coming from and showed and explained the problem to me. The leak was coming from my faucet. So Mr Nguyen took me to Home Depot and we picked out a new faucet. We returned to my home, and he replaced the old faucet with the new faucet. Thanks also for leaving my kitchen in impeccable condition. I'd also like to say that the price was more than reasonable. So to anyone out there, if you are looking for a plumber, Dinh Nguyen is your man.

Tony was the first to respond to my inquiry about painting the outside of my cottage. He came over the next day to evaluate the job. We easily agreed on a price for the whole job, and came to an understanding that it needed to be completed in the next two weeks. Despite some rain, which complicated the schedule, Tony and his team arrived on time, powerwashed the house, went above and beyond and repaired some rotting areas, did an excellent painting job, cleaned up thoroughly and put everything back as requested. I will definately use Tony's Handyman Services again for this, and for other projects. My sense is Tony is quite competent and can do carpentry, stonework, floors, fenches, irrigation systems -- pretty much anything I might need. Thanks Tony!

Andres was the most honest handyman that came to our house. He was realistic with estimates and timeframes and would tell you if there would be a possibility of delay or extension. The labor was reasonable and the door he installed was perfect. We would definitely hire him again. Note: a lot of people on Thumbtack hire him so he’s always on the go. But once he can squeeze your job request in, you won’t be disappointed.

I hired Art to hang a mirror which is pretty heavy aroung 80 pounds and 6foot tall. He came right on time. And brought the stuff required to hang it. But unfortunately, when those didnt fit in well( i forgot to tell him that its rather heavy mirror.), he rushed to home depot and got stronger one and had installed it. He knows about the stuff he is doing. Will surely going to hire him for other handyman work for our home.

A great husband and wife team!!!! They were on time and finished gutter cleaning very quick. He also cleaned the area. Adam was extremely kind and professional. While he was roof he offered some suggestions. This is great because I was concern about the job from a previous handyman. His quote was very reasonable and within budget. I will definitely hire them again future projects. I am so relieved I have a new handyman.

I hired Miguel to assemble a chair and install a keyboard tray at a business location. I needed someone who was reliable and professional. Miguel turned out to be both. He kept me informed of his schedule, was responsive, efficient and the job was well done. I will definitely keep his name and number and call him again when I have a need in his area. Very happy with his services.

      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.
