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

I hired Doug to install 2 wall timers that turned on outdoor patio lights for security purposes. I could usually tackle something like this on my own but was stumped because of the complicated wiring. He did this in less than half hour. Wow! I would hire Doug again without hesitation. He was the most thorough and knowledgeable electrician / handyman I've ever encountered in my ENTIRE LIFE! He worked quickly and was on time and pleasant and very knowledgeable when I asked him questions about electrical problems. Doug is a gem!

Well I hired him for a few days to work on some of my commercial buildings, he met all my expectations and the deadline that I wanted it done, he is also a pro handyman like he says and is very straightforward. I asked him a lot of questions and he was happy to answer all my questions and concerns and gave different options and price ranges. I will be using Jerry from now on.

Jose was the perfect combination of 'friendly' and 'professional.' I will use him again for hauling and I already spoke to him about doing some handyman (and woman-his wife helps!) work for my mother. I highly recommend 'Jordaz Junk Removal and Cleaning Services'. It is so nice to find someone you can count on! And fair prices!

I really liked the work that he did for us at home. We had just planned to do a granite countertop, but we had various other things that needed to get done. He was quite the handyman and left everything clean...definitely will call again when needed.

I do believe since moving to Palm Desert 2 1/2 years ago this is the first time I have had a worker (handyman) arrive at the time he said he would be here. Both my husband and myself are Handicapped so you can imagine what a mess our garage was. This company went over and beyond what I originally had asked for. They helped us get better organized. I put away things where they belong (the last handyman we had shoved everything where he could. So when Mr. ARDILA’s coworker Came to me with brand new items in the plastic bags you pay 1.00, I was surprised. We are going to use him for our next project as well (my closet).”The Handyman” gets a thumbs up from us. Great job ! Respectfully, John and Anita Burris

Great 👍👍. If I had more thumbs, would give him more. Had a difficult hand held shower that broke that left rusty screws inside tile. Alan was able to remove and install new hand held shower and cannot even tell that there a problem before. He is kind, handy (this called a handyman) honest, reasonable, and explains the job in hand before he starts. No surprises.

I have NEVER written a review before... but Oscar is the exception! He completed a wide variety of jobs for me around my house, (2 day job). He is an honest, hard-working man that cares & takes pride in his work. He was easy to work with and pricing was fair! I’ve never had an official handyman before… but now I do:) Thanks Oscar!!!

Paul was great with the work he did for us. He came home to get a scope of the job, met us at Bedrosians to assist with tile selection and design. His artistic abilities to choose the right design made our backsplash become a focal point in the kitchen. Paul McAdams also assisted with couple other jobs which was good to have one person handle it all. Below are before and after pictures of the kitchen backsplash tile work done.

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.
