Sergey couldn't fix my issue but he was really nice, seemed very competent and didn't charge me for the job since the repair wasn't complete. It was a tough repair so I'd still hire Sergey for other projects.

I had a plumbing repair that required new fittings as well as treatment of wet wood. Michael was on time, efficient and neat. His price was reasonable and his explanation of what needed to be done was understandable. I would use this service again.

Dennis was professional and arrived early. He messaged me prior to his arrival and was very courteous while he was working. He explained what he was doing to my husband. He was very helpful and answered our questions. He repaired our shower/bathtub. My husband previously tried to repair a pressure problem with the handle which resulted in a leaking handle and bathtub faucet. Dennis was able to repair our shower in 1 visit. I definitely recommend him. Keep in mind he is semi-retired so you must be patient with his scheduling. Trust me it's, worth the wait if it's not an emergency. I will definitely call him again if I need somthing repaired.

Matthew was thoughtful, informative and very communicative in the lead-up to my selecting him for some stair repair work. He and his team delivered on time and within budget, consistently providing unsolicited updates as he went. I could not be happier with the work or the interaction through project. I highly recommend Matthew for anyone seeking help with their residential reconstruction projects!

I've literally communicated with or contacted at least five contractors over the past two months to complete this flooring job. Salinas was an answer to prayer! Whereas other sites or contractors told me to wait and/or never got back to me or took others jobs, Vyron responded promptly within an hour when I posted the job on Thumbtack. Vyron and Pablo did excellent work putting down a new subfloor and plywood, then installing an LVP (see photos) and a new toilet (not pictured). Vyron communicated about every step of repair and installation and about every purchase for the job. He takes pride in his work and left the work area clean. I'm so glad that the job is finished and that it was done well.

Bogdan was able to come the next morning to help us with our faucet install and a minor deck repair. He identified a valve under the sink that also needed to be replaced and went out to grab the replacement part for us on the spot. He was on time, had great communication and did everything we asked!

Mike Anderson gets 5 stars from me. He went above and beyond in this job, which came with some issues due to the age of my house. In the end, the job was a success and the quote was right on, just as he stated. This was my first experience with Thumbtack.com, and I told everyone at work how easy it was to book a job! It literally took 10 min from logging on to TTACK, receiving a quote, and booking the job! To get great service so easily felt a little scary...it shouldn't have been so easy, but it really was. Mike was so professional and knowledgable, and we've already talked about future repairs! Awesome connection to capable service people. Thank you Mike and Thumbtack.com!

Fantastic experience with Salamat. I hired him to assist with some shelving installation, and he was punctual, communicative, and asked the right questions throughout the project to make sure it was done perfectly. Where I had questions about how to proceed, he was ready with helpful suggestions. He was so quick and efficient that we ended up having him assist with a few other repairs around the home, and are already planning future projects that we’ll hire him for. Highly recommended!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
