I moved new to this area was glad I found such a great handyman. He really knows what he's doing. I was very afraid in the beginning, since I was new to the area & didn't know, if I could trust anybody with my repairs. I am very glad that I found him & he replied very quickly to all my questions. I will definite refer him to all my friends, family and even to my neighbors. They have an excellent customer service. Very happy.

Juan was an excellent handyman. I had him come to hang a few pictures and with a few quick instructions he hung everything up with care and attention to detail. Would definitely hire him again in the future! Thanks Juan :)

I had plumbing work done by J.R. Electrical and handyman services. They were courteous and professional. They did the work in a timely manner and at a fraction of the cost of a big plumbing company. I will definitely be using them again

This technician was so diligent I had a crash after my computer installed new updates. It was a mess to figure out. He came and worked on it for 3 days. He wouldn't take any money until he repaired the problem. I was so impressed with his knowledge about computers. He said he would have to reinstall windows 7. I didn't have the lic. # until I contacted the person who put the program in. When we finally got the # Alexey was able to repair my computer. I would highly recommend him to fix any computer.

Bruce put in 2 sheets of glass where we had none before, only burglar bars. He also sealed the entire window. It's SO much quieter now and he was super fast and responsive. Everything was as he said it would be and we will use him for all future projects! Very confident in his abilities :)

So incredibly professional, efficient, and incredibly gifted handyman. If there's a problem he can fix it and basically any furniture he can assemble. I thought this desk would have been impossible - Amazon Assembly would have charged me double and estimated 3-4hrs of assembly just for the desk. Thank God for Thumbtack, because this guy knocked it out in an hour and as you can see it looks amazing!

WOW! Totally exceeded expectations! On-time, charged me EXACTLY as promised and the work was so good that I keep pinching myself that finally I’ve found a handyman and electrical/plumbing service I can trust! I realize this may sound like I know these guys but I just found them on Thumbtack on a whim and I’m now in disbelief that—after YEARS of being BURNED by incompetent, unethical, tardy or just “meh” service persons in various handyman type jobs—there does indeed exist a company that gets it RIGHT. “But wait, there’s more!” I liked so much the before-hand clear communication and the fair pricing, NO GAMES approach to cost as I was booking services, that I scheduled them to also clean my windows (they were more nit-picky that I am! They cleaned my skylight!) and a car wash: LISTEN PEOPLE: I watched them, unbidden by me, WIPING DOWN MY ENTIRE FRONT GRILL DRY, nook-by-tiny-nook in my brand new KIA Stinger (just google that history-in-the-making car to understand why it DEMANDS to be babied!) Never in my life have I had a better car wash! And they came to me?! Here is what I paid (I tipped 15% on top of what I wax charged, pricing below was what I was quoted and charged): $49 Fixed my garbage disposal $49 Fixed my broken heater $6-$8 per window (I don’t have grids) $40 car wash (3 people worked on it!) These gals and guys DESERVE to succeed! Finally somebody determined to keep their word! WAAAAY OVERDELIVERED on their promise! BRAVI to everyone who evidently cares so deeply to hire such professional, NICE, communicative, COMPETENT staff with a can-do attitude! GRAMERCY OC Consierge! Will be using you for everything I need from now on!

Ray was great! I needed a bed put together and Ray was able to do it same day. He showed up early. We didn't have the instructions anymore but we showed Ray a couple pictures and he did it perfectly. We already talked to Ray about some other projects around the house that we will be needing. Definitely recommend Ray for your handyman services!

John did an amazing job hanging things up in my apartment... I’m so glad I went with him instead of attempting to hang everything myself! He hung my TVs, full length mirrors, shelves, curtain rods and several other heavy pictures/decor items. He’s very friendly and his recommendations on where to hang things were great. I didn’t feel like I had to oversee him to make sure items where hung in a good spot. I’m glad I now have a handyman I can trust whenever I have a project I need help with!

I was in need or some extra play space for my two boys. We are the house on the block where all the kids come to hang out. Fun but challenging, I work often from home running WebEx meetings. Jon built me a kids "game" room in the garage. I could not be happier! He is as in time, helped me draw out how my idea would work and built quickly and exactly how I wanted. This Washington my lowest build but I wanted quality too. My boys love it and so do I!!! Excellent quality work at a price worth it! I will recomend Do It Now Handyman to friends and I will use them again.

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.
